    I plan on booking a stay at the Grand Floridian but my family and I were wondering about the difference between rooms: Florida special accessible and the wheelchair access?

    Hi, Elisa!  The Florida special accessible rooms basically are constructed to be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair or an electronic convenience vehicle, but they do not have some of the other accommodations that people with some disabilities may require.  

    In a regular accessible room, you can find a roll in shower, lower beds so that they are easier to transfer into, and a lower height toilet seat.  You can ask for a raised seat if you require one.  There are also bars for easier access in the bathroom.

    I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion!
