Can you give me information on any WDW suites or villas that have 2 bathrooms and are also handicap accessible? I will be staying with an aide and using a wheelchair, so 2 bedrooms are also necessary. Any other suggestions would also be welcome.
Lots of choices
There are all kinds of suites and villas that have 2 rooms as an option with accessible amenities. Let’s just dive in and look at them.
Even in the Value Resorts there are rooms that work. In both the Art of Animation Resort and the All Star Movies Resort, there are Family Suites. Family Suites have two rooms (although the second room only has a sleeper couch) and some have the accessible options. Those would be the most economical suites.
All of the Disney Vacation Club properties have two bedroom villas with some accessible rooms. The Disney Vacation Club Resorts are at:
- Animal Kingdom Lodge
- Bay Lake Tower
- Beach Club
- Boardwalk Inn
- Grand Floridian
- Old Key West
- Saratoga Springs
- Wilderness Lodge
- Coming soon: Rivera Resort
Also, all of the Deluxe Resorts have Club Level (concierge) suites. I’m not sure if these have accessible access.
An alternative would be to get two regular rooms at any resort, one being an accessible room. All resorts have connecting rooms that connect with a common door that is lockable. That would give your care giver privacy, but easy access.
Help is on it’s way
I know I didn’t narrow down the options very much. Let me offer you some real help.
I would highly recommend you get in touch with our partners at Destinations to Travel. They are very experienced with helping people with disabilities. A lot of their agents are or have family members that need accessible accommodations so they are very familiar with those needs and the best locations for you.
Just go here and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Richard, you have a whole lot of choices. Some are affordable, some are outrageously expensive. Do get in touch with Destinations to Travel and let them help. They know all about the accessible rooms and will help with your whole trip.
