When creating Disneyland, and later Walt Disney World, Walt wanted a place adults could enjoy alongside children.  Where the fun would be enjoyed by everyone.  One of the keystones of Disney has always been inclusion.  In keeping with that ethos Disney tries hard to accommodate all guests and in particular those with a disability.  Of course even Disney can struggle to deliver on this every time and in every situation.  The important thing is their intention to try to achieve inclusion.  Trying to provide a magical place for those guests with a range of disabilities should be and is a priority for Disney.  Help for disabled guests is varied and sometimes tailored to suit individual needs.  For this week’s post I thought I would share our personal experience of using the Disabled Access Pass at Disney World.

Pandora: could Disney have done better?  The simple answer is no.   If you are expecting to be amazed when you visit the Valley of Mo’ara, then you won’t be disappointed.  I promise, It’s all you hope for and more.  For those who haven’t seen the Avatar movie, Pandora is so well imagined not knowing the ‘back story’ in advance doesn’t lessen the enjoyment or the experience.  Pandora is a rare thing, a place created from a movie that delivers to hard-core film fans that can also appeal to regular Disney fans.

In the pursuit of the ‘perfect’ Disney World trip I wanted to make sure that we spent enough time enjoying our very favourite attractions.  Being experienced Disney World visitors we know which attractions we want to spend time on and those we don’t.  We don’t have to rush around trying to make the most of our precious days in the parks by squeezing in all the attractions.  You could call us very lucky.  Deciding which favourite attractions to focus on is a great problem to have.

My Husband was a reluctant Disney visitor, in common with many men, he thought Disney World was going to be his idea of a nightmare.  Filled with uncontrollable over-excited kids, long lines for rides and forced to eat theme park food, overpriced and tasteless.  Continue Reading

There is so much to see and do at Walt Disney World, it’s tough to fit everything into one vacation.  Ok, I realise you actually can’t do everything in one trip but something you really should make time for is meeting characters.  These experiences are traditional at Disney and they can be so special, even if you don’t have kids.   I would urge everyone to find their inner child.  Suspend their disbelief and interact with the characters for what might just be one of the most memorable moments of your holiday.

Now that we’ve hit 2017 planning for our trip to Disney World and Universal Studios has begun in earnest.  I know, we don’t depart for another 250 days, but for me planning is part of the trip, so it’s never too early to start.

First off I decided I would make sure I planned plenty of time for everyone’s favourite attractions and dining locations.  So, to that end, I compiled a list for each family member.  Here’s list number one.  Disney World’s top three attractions by Joe, our son and expert, age 12.
