    We have our 2nd trip to disney in June and are planning on doing the Spirit of Aloha. What it the seating like for this meal? Can they accomodate a child in a wheelchair? What about the sci-fi drive in at animal kindom? Thank You! Valerie SA,Texas

    Hi Valerie!

    Yes, Disney World has accessible seating at both the Spirit of Aloha Show and the Sci-Fi Dine in Theater (which is actually located at Hollywood Studios, not Animal Kingdom).  Both of these are fabulous dining options.  At Sci-Fi, your party will dine in a "convertible" in what appears to be a 1950s-style drive in, while watching old Sci-Fi shorts.  The accessible tables look more like traditional tables with a "car front", versus some of the other tables, where your party is seated front to back.  The luau presented at the Spirit of Aloha show is fabulous.  There is a performer who does amazing things with fire!  The show offers "tiered" pricing (in three price categories that change with proximity to the main stage.)

    When you make your Advance Dining Reservations, simply inform the Cast Member who is helping you that you will need wheelchair accessible seating, and it will be noted on your reservation.  I would recommend mentioning this when you arrive at the podium as well.  There is accessible seating at all of the Disney Restaurants, so feel free to dine wherever your appetite leads you!

    Have a great trip!
