    Can a person (91) with disabilities bring her own wheelchair and use it on the hotel and Disney Parks including Water parks? How are the rooms for people with disabilities on Arts of Animation? She will be staying with two more adults in the room with her.

    Hello, Jeissa!

    Your friend is absolutely welcome to bring her own wheelchair to use while visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Most of the Complimentary Resort Transportation is accessible so traveling from her Disney Resort hotel to theme parks, water parks and Disney Springs will be a breeze. Accessibility extends right to her Disney's Art of Animation Resort room. Some rooms offer wheelchair-accessible bathrooms with safety rails or roll-in showers, while others are designed for hearing impaired Guests. You will find rooms have wide doorways and convenient handles as well as elevators in all buildings. If you think she may need additional Services for Guests with Disabilities at your Disney Resort hotel, then call the Resort Room Special Request Hotline at 407-939-7807 to speak to a Cast Member who can assist you in room needs or requests during your stay. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions, as we are always hEAR to help!
