Dear Editor,

I am planning a trip to Disneyworld in May. I will be traveling with my husband, our 5 year old daughter, and her godmother. We have traveled together before so we are somewhat familiar with potential problems. I was wondering if you had any specific information about a Disneyworld property that you have heard about from some other traveler that they thought was particularly accessible. As we know, all hotels have a different idea of accessibility. We are interested in one of the properties that is a suite situation (at Disneyworld they are called Home Away from Home properties). We will be flying from Memphis, TN and renting an accessible van upon arrival. Any information you could pass along would be helpful. Thank you – Jan Williams

Disney, especially their newer hotels, are good regarding accessibility. However, they have an odd policy of not discussing their specific accommodations with disability organizations. You should probably inquire with them directly. Another alternative, however, is Villas in Orlando. They have build a community of accessible rental homes one exit from Disney! Housing up to 14 people, these might be a good option for you.
