    Hi Sharon!

         September should be a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World!  Not only will the weather be cooler, but the crowds will be significantly lower as well.  This should make the entire experience more comfortable for your son!  If your son is in a wheelchair, he can be rolled right onto the buses and be strapped down for the duration of the ride.  However, regular strollers will need to be folded and guests will need to sit in a regular seat.  I have a close friend whose daughter uses a disability stroller and she assured me that she has always been given the same courtesy as wheelchair users.

         Just to be safe, I would bring a note from your son's doctor, outlining his exact restrictions.  I would then visit Guest Relations and pick up a Guest Assistance Card.  Each card is different and the Cast Member will help you to select the perfect one for your son's needs.  Disney World is such a magical place and I just know that you will have a fabulous vacation!

    Much pixie dust,
