Yes, it is a handicap-accessible cabin. Unless you have a medical need, you probably can't book a HA cabin until close to sailing date - if any are still available.

My mom and I were in 6654 on our first Disney cruise in 2008. The cabin as well as the balcony were HUGE, but they were a LONG distance from the nearest elevator. I thought they were very inconveniently located for someone with mobility issues.

You must provide medical documentation to DCL in order to book it (or any other HA room).

I totally agree with the distance. I do not understand why Disney does this. I am hoping it is different on their newer ships, plus one more thing I don't understand and hope they change, is the solid wall on the balcony. I have a child in a wheelchair and he cannot see anything but solid wall. I have to hold him for him to see anything. For Disney being so kid friendly and taking such good care of special needs children, I can't believe they haven't thought of this.

I believe it is a structural reason why the boat ha solid walls at the front and back of the boat. Also the HA rooms are at the front or back of the boat in order to accommodate the size of the rooms as not to take away from the regular # of staterooms available.
There are some oceaniview Family rooms but I believe the HA balcony rooms are still at back of boat and are solid walls on the DReam

Other cruise lines I have been on have the HA cabins near the midship elevators. That's where they belong, and not at the far ends of the ship. It was poor planning on DCL's part.
