    We have a 7 year old daughter confined to wheelchair. What activities will she be able to participate in? Things she will most likely not be able to do? Just trying to be sure a cruise is a good fit for our family. Thank you.

    Welcome Aboard, Barb!

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel with your question.

    One of the most awesome things about a Disney Cruise is the way they go above and beyond to make sure each and every guest has the most amazing experience possible. That includes making as many experiences as they can accessible to all guests.

    The Youth Activities Counselors are well-trained and prepared to accommodate children with special needs. I encourage you to contact the Disney Cruise Line Special Services Team before you set sail to discuss your daughter's particular needs. They can answer any questions you may have about the types of activities that will be available in the Youth Clubs, and can give you peace of mind that your daughter will have the most magical time possible on your vacation! You can reach the Special Services Team by calling (407) 566-3602, or you can email them at

    Disney Cruise Line has made certain that most guest areas of the ships are fully accessible, including theaters, restaurants and shops. Each ship features accessible staterooms and suites, equipped with special features for Guests with disabilities. You can find more information regarding their services, facilities and amenities here.

    Hopefully by speaking to the nice folks on the Special Services Team, you'll be certain that cruising with Disney Cruise Line would be an incredible vacation experience for you and your family. I hope this helps! - Diane W.
