I found out on our last trip that not all roll in shower rooms are fully H/A. My room at OKW had a roll in shower and toilet with grab bars but the rest of the villa was not H/A. The microwave was mounted over the stove. The kitchen sink did not have the cutout so I could get close. The doorway to the porch had a large lip I could not get my chair over. I guess you have to ask for a H/A room that is fully H/A not just a roll in shower if you need to get to the kitchen sink and microwave. Because I was traveling with my DH I was able to get along okay. But I do like my independence to make my popcorn when I want!

Beach Club

Do anyone know of rooms at the Beach Club that are HA and where they are located in the resort? I need one close to the Lobby and eating area, and near an elevator if possible.

Thanks
Dawn

The accessible rooms are in all price categories and scattered throughout the Resort. And at BC the only table service is Cape May Cafe (which is a buffet off the lobby) and the only counter service (which is also table service) is Beaches and Cream.

The last time we stayed at pop... 2008.. the answer to that question would be no. I was told that all the rooms with roll-in-shower were king rooms. But as that has been a few years, I don't know if that may have changed.

We stayed in a room last fall with a roll-in shower..... however this room was pre-refurbished. It was a king bed..... I don't think they would have changed that. The refurbishment replaced all the double beds with queens, so I assume it could be either a king or 2 queens now.

Royal Room at Port Orleans Riverside

Hoping someone here may have the "inside scoop". DD is a manual wheelchair user and we just booked our next trip to WDW in a Royal Room/ 2 queens. Soooo excited and that's just me - keeping it a surprise Daughter can make some transfers so really our ideal room configuration is simply toilet and tub grab bars with a little extra bathroom space for ease of transfer. Anyone have any idea yet what type of accessible rooms will be on offer for this category? Thanks for any info!

I went to look at prices for WDW and made a booking just to see the prices. Now you can book a accessible room while using normal booking page.

When I get up the different rooms that are available there is something called Florida special accessible room with option for hearing accessibility. 2 queen beds. Sleeps 1 - 4.

What is Florida special accessible room?

Villa at Wilderness Lodge Room 5544 2 Bedroom Dedicted Roll in shower in both bedrooms



















This Photo was taken to show the difference in height between the toilet and a standard Wheelchair. We informed Disney that transferring from that height to a Wheelchair wasn't possible for my wife without my assistance.

THey were doing renovations at Pop in March. Rooms were going to be made into family suites and the HA were now dble dble avl too.

Our scoop is that there was an accessable room, sleep dbl dbl. It did not have a roll in shower. They had to adjust our reservations when we got to the Pop to add the roll in shower room which had a King.

But, when I called for our reserv recently, now they are stated to have a dbl dbl with roll in shower.

Our family of four had a King access with the attached dbl which gave the disabled person the ability to sleep alone. Now we have to pay for 2 rooms, the disabled person or another would be given a roll away. No idea where it would be put with rollator, ECV, and other bedding needs.

We are staying off site this time to see if it works out better for future trips.

When I booked with my travel agent, she said that she talked to "special needs" at WDW and was told that at All Star Sports, the rooms with the roll in shower have a king as well as two doubles. This was a shock to her and she was going to call back and talk to someone else to see if it's really true.

I'm just wondering if anyone has heard of this type of room...praying it's true and it's a new renovation.
