    My mother and I are traveling alone, she is 83 and I'm 60, what are the best places to visit.

    What a lovely trip you are planning for your mother and yourself.  I have actually taken my own mother many times to Walt Disney World so at the age of 87 she is quite the pro Disney traveler!

    Although your mom might be quite mobile I strongly urge you to get a wheelchair for your mom so she will truly enjoy the full days in the parks.  You can rent them at each park or you can use a local facility to rent them and they will deliver directly to your resort.  A few places include Walker Mobility, 888-726-6837 and LifeAire, 800-417-9496.  The park wheelchairs cannot leave the parks and its nice to have one to get back to the resort and use there.

    All four parks are wonderful places to visit and suggest a day in them all!  When you arrive please stop at Guest Services and ask for a disability guide which will help you decide what attractions will be accessible for your mother with ease.  When you are ready to load into a vehicle at an attraction feel free to ask the cast member there to request them to slow the speed down so you and your mother can enter at that slower pace.  You can see a short description for all park attractions by clicking HERE.

    My mother's favorite resort to stay at is the Yacht or the Beach Club resorts as she loves the ability to come and go from EPCOT day or night!

    Be sure and get some advanced dining reservations as well by calling 407-939-3463.  Have a wonderful and magical vacation!
