    I have a 3.5 year old son who has cerebral palsey and is nonverbal, can't sit up on his own and has no control over his arms or legs. we also have 2 girls (7 and 2.5) who will be with us. Any suggestions for us on how to best enjoy our time at MK

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Stephen. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     The Walt Disney World Resort is committed to offering everyone inclusive, accessible, and magical experiences by providing many services for Guests with disabilities. I know your family will have an unforgettable visit to Magic Kingdom Park! I do have a few suggestions on how to best enjoy your day there. When you arrive to the park, stop by Guest Relations at City Hall to chat with a friendly Cast Member. Based on your family's specific needs, the Disability Access Service or other accommodations may be provided. Prior to your visit, review the list of Attraction Access Categories. This list specifies how your little guy can comfortably access attractions at Magic Kingdom Park. Additional tips and information is available on the Magic Kingdom Guide for Guests with Disabilities. You can pick this up when you're in City Hall or download and print it from home. Take advantage of Parade and Fireworks viewing for Guests with disabilities. There are multiple locations indicated on the Guide, but a Cast Member would also be happy to point you in the right direction. I also suggest making a dining reservation at The Crystal Palace. This is a great way to make sure your kiddos get a delicious meal and time with characters without having to wait in line!

     I hope this was helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
