Covers both Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line

America's most popular resort destination made it to the top of the charts for many reasons -- a hug from Mickey, a childhood revisited, a cleaner, safer, friendlier world... chief among them is Disney's hospitality. At Disney, every visitor is a guest, and Disney's parks, restaurants, cruise ships, and hotels strive to embrace everyone, regardless of any special accommodations they may require. In fact, when you think of it, virtually every family or group that visits Walt Disney World and the Disney Cruise Line has a special challenge. It's hardly a one-size-fits-all world, yet at Disney everyone seems to fit. It's clear that Disney has a reputation for accommodating guests with obvious special challenges -- you'll see more wheelchairs and electric scooters in Disney parks than you're likely to see almost anywhere else. But Disney's hospitality extends further, to those with less visible requirements. Disney offers accommodations for those who know to ask: Devices to help a hearing- or vision-impaired guest enjoy a show * theme park maps and translation devices in six languages * "Special assistance" for children with autism or ADD * a sheltered spot to breastfeed an infant * chefs and waiters schooled to serve a wide spectrum of special dietary needs * rides sized to fit guests of various disabilities and dimensions... You could fill a volume, and indeed, that's what PassPorter Travel Press and authors Deb Wills and Debra Martin Koma have done in this completely updated guidebook.
