    My wife, mother and I plan to visit WDW in early October and are looking for a Skyliner resort that will be best for someone with mobility issues. Which one would be the best and what would be the best room to request?

    Hi there, Megan, and welcome to planDisney! I'm thrilled that you're here today with this great question about your upcoming vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth! A visit during the fall season sounds perfect for a getaway! Mobility issues don't have to slow you down during your vacation, and I'm excited to give you a few tips on how to manage this during your visit.

    Megan, there are a few Disney Resorts Collection hotels that feature easy access to the Disney Skyliner. Knowing that your mom has mobility issues, I'd encourage you to consider Disney's Riviera Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort. Each of these amazing Resorts offers accessible rooms in case she'll be needing to use a wheelchair. Additionally, you'll find Disney Skyliner access just steps outside of the Resort. At Disney's Riviera Resort, the path to the Disney Skyliner is actually a covered walkway, which provides additional comfort during your stroll to and from your room. Disney's Beach Club Resort is within walking distance to EPCOT, where you'll find a Skyliner station just outside the entrance. You might also consider requesting a room that is on the ground floor or close to the lobby, so that you're never too far away from amenities like the gift shop and Front Desk. 

    I'm happy to tell you that Walt Disney World Resort does an exceptional job of making every Guest feel included, and this includes Guests who need a little extra assistance boarding attractions and transportation. If your mother uses a wheelchair or scooter, she'll find that she can roll right on a bus, boat, Monorail, and the Skyliner without issue. Cast Members are trained to assist Guests with mobility issues and have their safety as a priority. Some attractions feature alternative seating for Guests who might not be able to use the typical seating. Check out this helpful guide for all of the services available! 

    Megan, I hope this is helpful as you continue to plan for your vacation. Please stop back by planDisney with any other questions you have!

    See you real soon!
