    One of the members of my party is under going chemotherapy. Are there any lodgings that are better for those with compromised immune systems?

    Welcome to planDisney, Dave! 

    I hope you’re excited for your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, because it really is that - The MOST Magical - for everyone! 

    For many years, my grandmother was receiving chemotherapy. I had the opportunity to travel with her many times during that trying time of her life. It was so wonderful to see the magic of Disney light her up and whisk her away to somewhere magical for a few days! I’m happy to share my experiences with Disney Resorts Collection hotels while I was traveling with my sweet GiGi. 

    We preferred staying at less-crowded, quieter hotels, that gave us a sense of privacy and security (especially with her compromised immune system). When we visited with my grandmother, we really enjoyed Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. These two destinations were very accommodating, and comfortable for us. 

    Another great option you may consider would be staying at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Though I did not stay here with my grandmother, I do feel confident that this would be the most beneficial lodging option for your party, as there are few places that you would have contact with other Guests, and it would offer a quiet retreat (especially if the member of your party is having any troubles sleeping at night). 

    Though every Disney Resorts Collection hotel would be a great option for you, Dave, I hope my experience was helpful to you. 

    If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to reach out again!
