    Planning for child in power wheel chair

    Hi, Jeremy!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    As the mom of a child with special needs, I can tell you from personal experience that Walt Disney World Resort always goes above and beyond to make the magic accessible to everyone.  Since you will be visiting with a child who uses a power wheelchair, I suggest that you begin your planning by taking a look at the Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities page on the Walt Disney World website.

    On the Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities page, you will find a wealth of helpful information.  You can read about the accessibility of various attractions throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks.  This page is also great for learning about transportation and parking accessibility.  If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you might want to reference the Services for Guests with Disabilities at Disney Resort Hotels page as well.  

    Jeremy, I would also recommend reaching out to a Disabilities Services Cast Member.  You can find their contact information on the Services for Guests with Disabilities webpage.  You can feel free to give them a call or send them an email to discuss your family's specific situation and needs.  

    I have no doubt that with the planning you're doing now, everyone in your travel party is going to have the most magical vacation ever!  If there's anything else we can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask.

    See ya real soon!
