    Hi Tationa-Jo,

    I have a son who has Cerebral Palsy & I'm happy to assist you make this an awesome trip! I'm limited in space so I'm going to touch on some highlights & welcome you back for more details on any that you need.

    If you are planning to stay at a Disney Resort, you'll be happy to know that there are handicapped accessible rooms

    Be sure to visit the Guests with Disabilities link. There you will find info regarding the services they provide for Guests with visual & hearing disabilities. You'll also see a place to download a copy of the Guide for Guests with Disabilities for each theme parks.

    You should obtain a Guest Assistance Card for each of your daughters. For more info, click here.

    First Aid Stations located in every park will be a great place to assist you with any medical needs that you have as well as a place to change your daughter. For more info click here.

    You know your daughters better than anyone so if they have any things that may trigger anxiety for them, avoid those attractions (i.e., attractions that are dark, loud noises, etc). If you have questions about any specific attractions let me know. If your daughters have any comfort items, bring them if possible. If your daughters become anxious, remember to relax & breathe & remove them from the situation until they calm. If you see they've had enough, pack it up & head back to your resort.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
