Planning for Walt Disney World With Extra Challenges

Below you’ll find articles to help you manage at Disney with all kinds of small to large extra challenges. They include health and emotional challenges, as well as other miscellaneous challenges such as speaking a foreign language or having religious concerns.

In general, we’ve found Disney to be extraordinary when it comes to supporting those with challenges. There are those who feel that Disney could do better in certain areas, and I’d agree that there’s always room for growth. However in our experience, we haven’t come across any place like it. The lengths they go to for their guests with challenges are way beyond what we’ve seen almost anywhere else.

The goal here is to help you know how to prepare and travel as easily, comfortably and safely as you can while having a great time. But… before you read these articles, please read the disclaimer at the bottom of this page.
