The best tip I can give is basically to get yourself a copy of the "Guide for Guests with Disabilities".  You can order a copy here: http://www.disneylandparis.com/cgi-bin/ ... =uk&v=&cp=  or download it here: http://www.disneylandparis.com/uk/good_ ... sitors.htm

It could also be a good idea to search around various forums for trip reports where a disabled person has been visiting, since they'll give some good advice and tips based on what they experienced during their visit.

You can call the reservation line for brochures, so I guess you can request the guide for disabled guests there too.  :idea:

well, it's very strange, after posting on here about contacting dlrp so many times for a disabled guide and they never responded, one dropped through my letter box this morning! how weird is that????

nothing beats info from people who've experienced it though , si if there's anybody who has travelled with disabled guests and has any tips i'd love to hear them, thanks

What sorts of things do you want to know - experience as a Social Worker taking clients, Make a Wish trips, Visually Impaired and Wheelchair user guests.  My mom is disabled too.

My wife and mother have special dietary needs, but for time purposes, if you ask questions, I am happy to answer.

It's alright we used it 14 years ago but it might have changed since then! For my sister who is in a wheelchair (and severely disabled) it wasn't that good it was hard to manuver her but we need more room than most wheelchair users. I'll ask my mum to see what she said but I think one of the problems was distance, it's ok if you ca quickly walk it but it takes longer in a wheelchair!

It was the distance from the hotel to the park adn the fact that we had to que to get into the park. People don't often understand that she can't que but if you ca move quckly and can que then it should be fine!

Thanks alisa!
English is my second language - I am a German.

So I hope that New York Hotel is good for me and I can get around there.
