    We are sailing disney dream In February. My 7yr old son has cerebral palsy and his medical stroller is 65lbs. I have his alternative wagon/stroller that's collapsible that push like a stroller. Am I able to bring that for him to tote him around

    Hi there, Kalianne!

    We are so glad to have you here at planDisney! A Disney Dream sailing lives up to its name as a DREAM vacation. Hope you feel the same after setting sail with Captain Mickey. Believe me, Disney Cruise Line does an exceptional job with accessibility and ensuring Guests' safety, so you'll be sailing into smooth waters.

    Good news: you absolutely may bring your son’s stroller onboard! I think the collapsible one would be a good idea since you will have to store it either inside your stateroom or in a designated parking area when not in use. His medical stroller sounds much heavier and might prove more challenging to navigate the hallways and smaller spaces onboard. 

    I highly suggest letting Disney Cruise Line know your son will be using his wheelchair. You can discuss his needs in advance with the Special Services Team, and they will ensure your vacation is practically perfect in every way. One tool they have is an online form that can be submitted pre-cruise, but no later than 60 days prior to your sail date. Definitely fill that one out in advance!

    A great deal of thought and attention has been given to making as much of the Disney ships accessible to Guests with wheelchairs. Most Guest areas onboard the ship are accessible, including theatres, restaurants and shops. Additionally, pool lift access can be prearranged through Special Services. Wheelchair accessible staterooms are available and feature the following: minimum 32” doorways; bathroom and shower grab bars; open bed frames; roll-in showers; emergency call alarms; fold-down shower seats; ramped bathroom thresholds; and hand-held shower heads.

    Finally, I recommend the Information for Guests with Disabilities and Medical Conditions booklet as a great roadmap on how to approach making arrangements for your son and your travel party. 

    Kalianne, I hope this reassures you that your voyage will be both accommodating and captivating. We welcome you back to planDisney if we can help you again in any way. It would be my absolute pleasure!

    Happy Sailing!
