    My son is disabled and needs a carer with him at all times, does the carer have to pay entrance for Disney? Or can a disabled person take a carer for free?

    Hello Caroline! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You have a beautiful name by the way!

    It sounds like your son will have a great time at the Walt Disney World Resort. I think it is wonderful that he will be traveling with a Carer to help make his time a bit easier! All guests over two years of age are required to have a valid Theme Park Ticket for entrance to any of the four Disney Theme Parks and any of the two Disney Water Parks.

    Even though the Carer will have to pay for admission to the parks, The Walt Disney World Resort works very hard to help accommodate those with disabilities. Be sure to have your son check out the Services for Guests with Disabilities. Here you can see all of the services that are offered to “provide access to as many Guests as possible.”

    I hope that a wonderful time is had by all!
