Family travel & accessible travel at Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disney, and Disneyland

Our family of four has visited Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, California; Tokyo Disney Resort’s Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea in Japan; and Walt Disney World’s EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. Here are a few of our insights for visiting Disney as a family, and with a disability.

Our family’s Disney pledge

Recite it on your Disney trip

I do solemnly swear
To let my imagination run free,
To love the magic of others,
To let the magic in me shine like the sun,
To always be with a trusted grownup,
And, above all, to learn, to make, and to have fun.

How to enjoy & navigate Disney parks with a disability or mobility impairment

“I use a prosthetic leg and a trekking pole to augment my day-to-day mobility. I handle the scale of a Disney park best by renting and using a wheelchair from Disney’s Disability Services. That way I preserve my walking energy and put it to use where it matters most: Enjoying the park and its many attractions!”
