    Hi, I am trying to take my son to Walt Disney for his birthday is September he will be 5 years old however he is disabled and wheelchair bound. He loves Mickey mouse and friends so that will be our main reason visiting. which park is best. animal or magic?

    Hi Javonna, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am glad to hEAR you are taking your little boy to celebrate his birthday at the happiest place on Earth. Your family will have an unforgettable time! You will notice that traveling with a wheelchair at any of Disney theme parks is very easy and comfortable. Walt Disney World Resort is very well prepared to receive Guests with mobility disabilities.  
    If it was my choice, I would choose Magic Kingdom Park for spending this very special day. It is absolutely my first option for his age range. You can start off your day with a magical meet-and-greet with Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater. You can make a reservation for a character dining experience at The Crystal Palace and meet Winnie the Pooh and some of his friends while you have a delicious meal. There are many attractions he will enjoy, especially in Fantasyland and Adventureland; and parades and fireworks are a “must-do” at Magic Kingdom Park.
    I am sure your family will have a magical day, making memories that will last for a lifetime!
    Hope this helps your planning. Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a “pixie-dusted” day!
