    Hi there - we're planning a trip in May. One of our party is undergoing cancer treatment, and is most comfortable sleeping in an upright position. Do you know of any rentals that deliver to resorts for sleep chairs, or similar bed inserts? Thanks!

    Hiya, Jason! 

    I'm so sorry that cancer has affected someone you love, and please know that I am sending positive thoughts and healing wishes.

    There are many things Walt Disney World can do to help in situations just like this. Disney has recently partnered with AdventHealth Services to be the official health care provider at the Walt Disney World Resort. The AdventHealth Care Concierge Services can arrange the delivery of medical equipment to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. This includes a hospital-type bed that will allow for sleeping in an upright position.

    The good thing about delivery from AdventHealth is that the Cast Members at the resort will help move some of the furniture out of the way so any deliveries can be set up as they arrive. AdventHealth can also provide other types of medical equipment to make your stay a little more comfortable.

    There are other providers in the area that rent recliners and hospital beds. You may have to arrange with them to meet at a certain time and help move some of the existing furniture yourself. I know at least K&M Rentals has lift chairs and recliners.

    Each theme park has First Aid Centers if you should need anything during the theme park day. Your friend can also use them if they need a bit of a break. The nurses can provide a quiet area for a bit of rest.

    I hope you have the most amazing visit, Jason. If we can help with any other planning, just pop on back and let us know!
