    Hi DonUlecia ~

    Christmas is a wonderful time to visit Disney World! The parks are just beautiful. I have a son with disabilities and know Disney assists Guests with many different types of disabilities.

    The Disability Service Access Card (DAS) assists Guests who are not able to wait in a standard queue. Here are some details explaining how to obtain a DAS and how it works in the parks. You can also find some additional information in this list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS.

    It may help your Mother and Grandmother if you rent a wheelchair for them. While they may feel fine first thing in the morning, the parks are huge and it may give them the stamina they will need to make it through the day and your trip. Here is some additional information on wheelchair rentals in the parks. In case you decide to rent a wheelchair, here is some information regarding attractions for Guests with Mobility Disabilities including those that allow Guests to remain in their wheelchairs or ECVs, those that require Guests in ECVs to transfer to wheelchairs to board and those that require Guests to be mobile to enjoy.

    I'm limited in space but please feel free to visit again with any other questions. It is my pleasure to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
