    Hello my name is Mercedes and I have a 5 almost 6 year old son who is autistic and ADHD, he is the size of a 10 year old so normal strollers will not support his weight. Would it be possible to try and get his wagon approved for disney?

    Hi Mercedes!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I'm so happy to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your son. You'll be making magical memories as you explore Walt Disney World's theme parks, and, as a parent, I know that ensuring his comfort and happiness is your top priority. Given your son's needs and size, it's understandable that a standard stroller might not be the best fit for him. 

    Walt Disney World's theme park rules typically don't allow wagons, as part of their efforts to ensure guest safety and comfort by keeping walkways open. However, Disney is also incredibly accommodating and strives to meet the needs of guests with disabilities and special requirements.

    For your situation, you might explore strollers designed for older children, as Disney permits strollers up to 31 inches in width and 52 inches in length. However, if your son's wagon is essential for his comfort and enjoyment of the park, reaching out to Disney's Disability Services could be a great step. They're there to help guests with special needs and can offer guidance on possible exceptions to the policy or alternative solutions.

    I suggest contacting the Disability Services team directly and providing them with details about your son's needs and the wagon. Disney's commitment to ensuring all guests have a magical experience means they're often willing to work with families to accommodate special circumstances. They can give you guidance regarding your son's needs, and let you know if his wagon will be approved as a medical mobility device in the parks. I do know that they will take seating and harnesses in the wagon into consideration, making sure they provide safety for your child as you navigate the parks. 

    I hope you'll be able to get clarity by speaking with the Disability Services team. If you have any more questions or need further advice, please come back and visit us here at planDisney!
