    I have a son with autism. I was thinking about taking him and his sister to Disney world but nervous cause he is 6yrs old and will be very over stimulated. We have a keenze wagon. Are they allowed in if you have a disability?

    Greetings, Ashley, and welcome to planDisney, we thank you for this excellent question!

    As a mother of a now-adult, autistic son who grew up visiting many Disney Destinations, I can attest that we saw the most, and the greatest social and developmental spurts during our visits, with many leaving lifelong poignant memories to reflect upon with great fondness.

    Disney in efforts to provide all Guests with a most inclusive and enjoyable visit offers many services for Guests with Disabilities. I rely greatly upon this resource during my planning, and I am most impressed with the forethought and extent of research that has gone into this guide to help Guests with their unique needs.

    To discuss the matter of the Keenz wagon, I regret to inform you that at this time, according to the Walt Disney World Resort Park Rules, many wagons and stroller wagons are prohibited from being used at Walt Disney World Resort, and this includes the Keenz stroller wagon. You are able to bring your own stroller, in fact, I would advise doing so for familiarity, and in order to be able to board the Disney Monorail transportation, and up to Disney Bus and Water transportation to consider your son’s comfort. We have also used Disney’s Stroller Rentals, which have recently been replaced by new, fun, brightly colored models, but you have to drop those off before exiting any Disney theme park.

    Ashley, if I many offer Disney’s Disability Access Service in preparation for your visit? You are able to consult with a Cast Member about this service through a live, video chat in the comfort of your home in advance of your visit with the DAS Advance option, or, by visiting Guest Relations inside any of the four theme parks. As well, please note that you are welcome to visit any Baby Care Centers and/or First Aid Centers which are always beside each other, to provide your son with a break from any over-stimulation. As well, I always stay at a Disney Resort hotel in order to head back in the afternoon for a much-needed rest, or refreshing swim.

    Thank you for stopping by Ashley, I look forward to sharing many more helpful tips with you to make your visit the best it can be!
