    I am staying at the Art of Animation Resort, in one of the Little Mermaids Room. What is the wheelchair access like? I have an electric wheelchair. Also, can I get on the buses and Skyliner with it?

    Hello Jacqueline! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    How exciting to hear about your upcoming trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! You must be really getting packed and ready now since it's coming so soon!  There are so many special things to see and do while you are visiting.  Make sure to take time to visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival while you're here.  I'm sure you're going to love the perfectly pruned topiaries scattered around the Park as well as all the delicious treats that are available for a limited time during the festival!

    My family and I recently stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort in a Little Mermaid Standard Room and my children have been asking to go back ever since!  Even though this Resort is considered a Value Resort, it has so many amenities that put it just a cut above the rest!  One of the reasons we love this Resort is because of the easy access it has to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios being right on the Disney Skyliner line. 

    You will find that Walt Disney World Resort is exceptional when it comes to services for all of its Guests, including those with disabilities.  When it comes to Disney transportation, you're in luck.  Guests are able to board both the Disney Skyliner and Disney busses while remaining in their wheelchair or ECV.  On the Skyliner, you'll be able to access a gondola and drive right on with other members of your party right behind. 

    Little Mermaid Rooms at Disney's Art of Animation Resort are also accessible for your electric wheelchair.  If fact, you'll find that the entire Resort hotel is wheelchair accessible.  With each building having its own set of elevators you'll be able to get wherever you need to go with ease, and Cast Members are always happy to point you in the right direction.  You'll even find a zero-entry pool at the Finding Nemo-themed "Big Blue Pool" as well as other pools with pool lifts if that is something you are interested in! 

    I hope you find it easy to access every part of the magic during your stay at Walt Disney World Resort.  Enjoy!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
