    Hello Melodie,
    Thanks for asking me such an important question about your families upcoming plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort and as the parent of a teenager who suffers with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E. I'm truly honoured to be able to offer you and your dear son some general guidance which hopefully should make your jolly Disney holiday as comfortable and accessible as possible.
    Firstly I'd like to reassure you that in my own personal experience of visiting Walt Disney World Resort with my teen that it's certainly possible to experience all the magic and yet still well manage her condition. I'm happy to share there are many wonderful Services for Guests with Disabilities which also includes helpful Services for Guests with Disabilities at Disney Resort Hotels. As your son easily becomes fatigued he would benefit from Services for Guests with Mobility Disabilities and you may wish to consider Wheelchair or ECV Rentals which both can be arranged for length of stay.  Plus your family might like to utilise the Disney Parks Disability Access Service Card which can applied for upon arrival at any Disney Theme Guest Relations location and provides assistance to Guests who are unable to wait in conventional queues due to their disability.
