Disney World is known for accommodating guests with disabilities and health issues. You can still have a really great time. Here are a few simple tips to remember to make your vacation go as smoothly as possible.
Note your condition when you book your room
The hospitality and service of Disney Cast Members can’t be beat. They are familiar with all types of health-related needs and are happy and willing to accommodate. Select rooms in resorts are designed to support guests in wheelchairs and guests who are hearing impaired. If you need special services let them know and they will most likely have a solution for you.
Cast Members at Disney World are very helpful in providing accommodations and solutions to dietary restrictions. When you book reservations, note that you want to speak to the chef about allergies.
Consider buying points for a Disney Vacation Club Villa. That way you will have a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals.
Visit City Hall when you arrive
The Magic Kingdom has City Hall for its Guest Relations, Other Parks also have Guest Relations somewhere near the entrance. Stop inside before you head further into the park and ask about accommodations if you need any special assistance.
Locate First Aid
Find first aid on your park map. When you enter the Magic Kingdom it is tucked away behind Casey’s Corner. In Epcot, it is by the Odyssey Center, between Future World East and the World Showcase. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has theirs on your immediate left where you walk in. Animal Kingdom’s First Aid is on the left side of Discovery Island behind Creature Comforts (Starbucks).
Consider Crowds and Weather
If you suffer from health issues, or disabilities that can be affected by either the weather or heavy crowds, book your vacation when these issues are minimal risk. Florida is very hot and humid most of the time. It cools down some in Winter. Follow the weather for the conditions you need and book during the offseason to avoid crowds. February is an excellent time.
Remember to not push yourself too hard or stay in the sun too long. drink lots of water to stay hydrated. vendors will give you ice water for free. most of Disney World is made to accommodate disabilities in a way that special attention is rarely needed. If you have a health issue that requires attention, any cast member can help you get what you need.
