    We will be traveling to Disney in September, my question is, my son has low vision and I was wondering if he would be able to sit near the front at shows so he can see the performance?

    Hi Stacey,

    The wonderful Cast Members at Walt Disney World will do everything in their power to help your family have a truly magical vacation in September.  If your son, or any member of your traveling party, requires additional assistance to be able to enjoy the shows and attractions at Walt Disney World, I suggest you stop by the Guest Services desk upon entering the Disney theme parks.  Share your concerns or special needs with the Cast Members there.  They will provide you with suggestions for how best to experience the shows and attractions within that park.  They may also offer you a Guest Assistance Card that you can show to Cast Members throughout the park.  This will help them understand your son's needs. 

    The other option, of course, is to arrive at shows well in advance of their starting time.  The earliest guests get their choice of seats.  Additionally, it wouldn't hurt to mention to the Cast Members working at that show that your son would benefit from seats near the front.  I'm sure they'll make every effort to accommodate your family.

    Best wishes for fun and adventure this September!
