    I have a son with special needs and is incontinent. My main concern is the hotel room. Will I need to bring extra sheets or underpads for his bed? I haven't been able to find much info about rooms, only the parks.

    Hi there, Chris!

    Rest assured that you will never find a more caring, discreet staff than the Cast Members at Walt Disney World. No issue is insurmountable; these folks are prepared to work to accommodate any need or request your son might have.

    Mousekeeping is ready to change sheets as you require. As a rule, the linens are changed every three or four days as an environmental / water-saving measure. However, as soon as you apprise them of your request, someone will be able to handle that for you.

    You might want to consider traveling with a mattress pad or protective liner. Just make sure to remove it prior to your sheet change so that Mousekeeping does not inadvertently pick it up.

    Consider letting the Cast Member who checks you in know that you'll be requesting extra sheet changes. You might also ask for extras to be delivered to your room that day; it never hurts to have spares around.

    And if your son wears any kind of incontinence garment to bed, you might want to toss some plastic bags in your suitcase. This way, you can seal up the used garment before throwing it away in case your room isn't made up until later in the day.

    You're sure to have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World. And you will know that your is in the most magical place on earth with every smile he showers on those around him!

    See you later, celebrator,
