Yes, both Alligator Bayou and the Mansions bldgs have fully accessible rooms. AB would be first floor as there are no elevators, but all mansion bldgs do have elevators. I know for sure AB has HC rooms in bldg 14 very near the food court/lobby/bus stop - we had one but cannot recall the room number. Enjoy POR!

EVC and Treehouses?

DM uses an EVC because she has 2 knee replacements and is 84 yo. We plan to stay in a SSR Treehouse villa next May. She does not require a handicapped equiped villa and I would not want to ask for one as some one who truly needs might miss out.

Are there villas with a ramp or where would we be able to put/recharge the EVC? Your help is most appreciated.

Is it too late to book a solo trip for either the first or second week of December? I'd like to stay at AllStar Music or Pop. I would need a tub seat and hand held shower since getting in and of the tub would be difficult by myself. Thanks for any advice. Kathy

I've also read about the noise from Chef Mickey. I can tell you that a roll in shower for my dad is not worth the crabbiness that will ensue if we are jolted awake, morning noon or night from Chef Mickey! He's already said he'll sponge bathe if he has to, he just wants a quiet room!

Any info is appreciated. I've search the archives and found little on the location of the rooms or if the rooms are only king.

Thanks!
We stayed at the CR last October in an accessible room and it had two queen beds and a sofa bed (single). It was a large room and easy to manuever in (except for the shower - it was a little small but we made it work).

It was close to a quiet pool and bus stop but the food court was too far for her to travel!!!!!! Any suggestions????
We have stayed in 1,3 and 4 which is close to the food and buses.

if not there, does anyone know where the accessible rooms are at coronado springs?
Yes there is, we have stayed in both of those buildings. 1 and 3 are also nice to stay in.

A friend of mine has two standard view studios reserved for January 2011 at Kidani Village, one of which is fully H/A (roll-in shower) for her adult son who is in a wheelchair. I'm trying to help her figure out what section of the resort they might be located in. When I called the resort the CM said they were, "scattered all over the resort." I'm sure there are a very limited number of studios with standard views with roll-in showers. Does anyone know where they might be located?

I know she won't be located right next door to her son and his friend, since she and her husband will also be in a standard view studio. They requested as close as possible and it's noted on the reservation.

Thanks for any insight or information on the fully H/A room locations that anyone can provide.

Bev

Has anyone stayed in an accessible Inn Room at Vero Beach? Just wondering where they are situated, hopefully not on the first floor.

wilderness lodge villa one bedroom

I will be traveling with my paralyzed husband, twin 2 yr olds and my able-bodied sister (god bless her) this May. we plan to stay in a one bedroom villa at the wilderness lodhe villas. Our travel agent was told "all rooms are wheelchair accessible" but when I called I was told to request a "handicap accessible" room for the accessible bathroom.
Does this sound right to anyone?
thanks so much

Yes, it makes sense. All rooms in Wilderness Lodge are served by elevators, so there are no stairs to reach any of the rooms, and all doors are wide enough for wheelchairs to fit through with no problem.

To reserve an accessible suite, you need to call Disney (or have your travel agent call) and ask for one to be reserved for you.

There are two types of accessible rooms, one with a roll in shower and ones without (but with extra handrails). I imagine you want one with a roll-in shower.

There is the number for special services in the FAQs at the top of the page, or you can call the regular contact number and they will direct you appropriately.

We stayed at the WL for our 2010 trip! The HC room was great! We had a roll in shower! The view was great, we could see fireworks! We enjoyed the balcony. DD loved it. She uses a wheelchair fulltime. The elevators were great.

For our 2011 trip we are doing a split stay! We have decided to stay at CSR and BC!!! Hope this is great trip too!

We were there at the same time as Weswife. We were in room 1015 just past the Roaring Forks, seemed to be alot of HC rooms down there. Roll in shower with adjoing room. The photos on the first page that Bill Sears posted show the set up of these rooms very well.
We had stayed in this very room a few years ago and didn't have a problem this time however the ADA height toilet was not present and we had a standard height toilet, not sure if they replaced it because of a problem with the old one and just used the first one they had. We are letting WDW know so hopefully they will fix this problem.

DW shot a short video of this.

First of all,returning you to shore was never part of our agreement. Second, you are not a pirate, so the Pirate's Code does not apply. And third, the Pirate's Code is more of a set of what you'd call 'guidelines' than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl.
