Is a Handicap Accessible Room Right for You or Your Loved One?

Accessible Shower

When planning a Walt Disney World vacation every guest must decide if the resort they stay at, and the room they pick can accommodate them to an acceptable level of comfort. Guests with disabilities often have even more decisions to make when it comes to style and comfort, as not all disability is created equal, so how does one know if a handicap accessible room is right for you or you loved one?

Disney’s Accessible Rooms are largely designed for those who need assistance with independent mobility. In other words the space is designed to be convenient for those in wheelchairs and with walkers. It’s been my personal experience (as someone who has a disability where the main symptom is chronic pain) as a mostly independently mobile person this special room type is not a necessity for me. If you’re traveling with beloved elderly senior citizens, and think you’ll book them a room like this, be sure to check with them to see if their disabilities really need these special designs.

To bring you a more in depth look at how this resort is for people in more structured mobility issues I went searching the internet.

Recently the author of Disney on Wheels took a look at our favorite resort and created some great points of reference for the Pop Century Handicap accessible rooms from the perspective of someone in a wheelchair. She mentions that she enjoys the very spacious room, barrier free bath, and easy use vanity area. Check out her video tour of Pop Century’s Accessible rooms:

Disney on Wheel’s overview of the Pop Century Resort gives a favorable impression to the overall ease of accessibility at the resort. If you’ll be traveling with someone who has mobility issues and are looking for a great value package for your Walt Disney World vacation, be sure to think of Pop Century.
