    We are planning our first family trip to disney and was wondering if anyone has any advice on a resort we could stay at that may be more accomodating for our daughter with special needs.

    I suppose that, depending upon your daughter's needs, one resort may offer an advantage over the others.  That said, it's tough to make a recommendation not knowing those needs.  My daughter has Down syndrome and we've stayed in many of the Walt Disney World resorts.  One particular resort, however, hasn't necessarily stood out with regard to accommodating her special needs better than the others.  If I were you, I'd call 407-W-DISNEY and speak with a reservation agent.  He or she will be able to offer specific recommendations based on your requirements.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
