    thinking of bring my parents to WDW 12/2025 there up in age and have problems getting around, to let them see there grandkid in the park and bring back memories of when they use to bring us I do not see them doing the rides what discounts package are there

    Greetings Paul!

    Your plan to bring your parents to the Walt Disney World Resort in December 2025 sounds like pure magic.

    There's something truly special about witnessing the wonder in your children's eyes and, in your case, the sheer delight on your parents' faces as they create timeless memories with their grandkids. I can vividly recall the joyous giggles of my own children's grandparents on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and the heartwarming smiles when the little ones join in the chorus of "it's a small world." Truly, the magic at Disney knows no age limit!

    Now, let's dive into your question about discounts and packages. While there might not be specific ticket options for those opting out of ride attractions, fear not! The magic doesn't end there. Keep a close eye on any Special Offers that may arise throughout the year, as your family can certainly take advantage of them.

    Considering your parents' mobility, I highly recommend exploring the convenience of renting an ECV (Electric Conveyance Vehicle). Choosing a Disney Featured Provider like Scooterbug allows for a seamless experience, with the ECV being delivered to your Resort and picked up at the end of your stay. The added bonus? They can effortlessly navigate through all the magic of the Theme Parks and Disney Springs using accessible transportation options like the Walt Disney World Bus Service, Monorail Transportation, and the Disney Skyliner. 

    As for the Theme Parks themselves, rest assured that many if not all attractions are accessible, and Cast Members are always ready to assist. From the gentle journey through Spaceship Earth in EPCOT to the spirited adventures on Nemo and Friends, there's a multitude of experiences tailored for every member of the family. Thrill rides are fantastic, but there's a plethora of equally exciting options like Soarin' Over California, Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, and Na'vi River Journey—perfect for grandparents seeking a more relaxed pace.

    And let's not forget the captivating entertainment options! Fantasmic!, Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond!, and the delightful Turtle Talk with Crush are just a few of the magical shows that leave my multigenerational family in awe. 

    I would be remiss if I didn’t mention all of the fun during the Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort. Resort hotels and Theme Parks are decked out in their holiday finest, and special experiences such as the Candlelight Processional and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays are amazing to experience as a family. Don’t forget, you’re never too old for a visit with Santa!

    Be sure to check out all of the Services for Guests with Disabilities and if you ever have a question, don’t hesitate to visit Guest Relations located in all of the Theme Parks and at Disney Springs.

    Wishing you and your family a beautiful adventure filled with love, laughter, and the timeless magic of Disney!
