    Wade from 35 Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I teach in a cross-categorical classroom with students with intellectual disabilities, in Ohio. Many of my students will never have the chance to come to Disney. Does Disney offer any discounts for a group like this?

    Hi Wade,

    Thank you for bringing your question to us at planDisney! We are so grateful for teachers and I’m personally grateful for the work that you do with your students. I know you must make magic for them and their families every day. 

    At this time, Walt Disney World Resort does not offer discounts for specific groups such as yours. However, for questions about groups staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I encourage you to contact a Group Reservations Cast Member who will happily assist you with accommodation questions. For regular theme park admission tickets for large groups, you can buy up to ten adult and ten child (ages 3-9) in one transaction online. If you need more tickets or if you have other questions, I suggest contacting a Cast Member in group ticket sales at (407) 939-1020 for assistance.

    Wade, Walt Disney World Resort desires everyone to feel welcome at The Most Magical Place on Earth, so I would like to share some special ways that your students and their families may experience an inclusive and accessible visit. First, Guests with cognitive disabilities might benefit from downloading this resource for Guests with cognitive disabilities which includes the variety of services available. I especially appreciate the information regarding the many places throughout the parks where Guests who need to “take a break” from all the excitement can do so.

    Your students may also appreciate the Attraction Details for Cognitive Disabilities which lists elements, such as loud noises, lighting effects and more, for attractions at all the theme parks. I find this list to be helpful when making choices for attractions for our family. And speaking of attractions, for those who find waiting in a standard queue a challenge due to a disability, the Disability Access Service (DAS) is extremely helpful. 

    Wade, for more specific information about any of these services and other resources available, you may contact Disability Services at (407) 560-2547 or email disability.services@disneyparks.com

    Again, thank you for the wonderful work you do. I hope your students can visit Walt Disney World. If you or your students’ families have other questions or would like more tips, please write back to us!

    Remember, you are the magic,
    Shannon

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
