I work at a group home with people with disabilities and we've planned a trip to Disney World this March. We're looking at going to a dinner show. Do you have any suggestions which one would be better? Is there reserve seating for people in wheelchairs?

My father-in-law has parkinson's, which WDW resort would you recommend for disabilities. He can walk just fine, but he will need hand bars in the bathroom area. We are going to rent a motorized cart for him at the parks-how much does this cost per day?

Hi, My daughter has ADHD and has trouble standing still for long periods of time. ( In lines for rides) She also has a problem with crowded places. Any suggestions for our upcoming trip? Thanks
