    My 2yo daughter has a form of muscular myopathy where she is delayed. As of now we are not in a wheelchair. She is still small enough that we tote her or use her stroller. By our Oct visit she may be in one. Will our rm at AoA suite be accomidating for it?

    Hello, Amanda!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney's Art of Animation Resort offers amazing theming from some of my favorite Disney-Pixar movies. I'm sure your daughter will love it!

    Our son uses a push stroller wheelchair to tour the resort, and we have found that the Walt Disney World Resort makes every effort to accommodate Guests with disabilities. In our experience, resort room doorways are large enough for us to easily navigate his chair through. I request a shower bench to make bath time a little easier for both my son and my back! You can request a designated handicap accessible room, but we have found that a regular room can be just as accommodating.  

    One thing you may want to consider is getting a tag for your stroller so your daughter can use it as a wheelchair. This tag allows your daughter to remain in her stroller in the queue until it is time to board the attraction. Our son prefers the "safety" his chair provides in crowded queues and loud areas of attractions. Just visit any theme park Guest Relations Cast Member, who will be able to assist you with this tag.  

    I hope you and your daughter have a magical October vacation. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
