Bath bench at Nemo Rooms?
 
Hi!
I was wondering if anyone knew if the have bath chairs or tub benches at the Nemo rooms at the Art of Animation. I need to sit when I shower, but other than that don't need special accommodations for my Tbi. Pictures would be awesome if you have any! Also, due to fatigue, which place is closest to the food court.
Thanks!

If you have a room with a roll-in shower, the seat is built into the wall. You simply pull it down.

Without an accommodation for a handicapped room - no - there is no seat of any kind provided.

I know at other resorts, you can get a bath bench on request from Housekeeping. There are also medical equipment companies that rent them for use by WDW guests.
We have borrowed one several times (not at that resort though). If you borrow one, my suggestion would be to check it out before they leave the room darn delivering it. One we borrowed had screws so loose that it was very wobbly.

Follow the link in my signature to the disABILITIES FAQs thread (or look near the top of this board). Post 2 of that thread has information about renting ECVs, wheelchairs and other medical equipment.

Obviously - my advice in Post 2 is WRONG!

Post 3 - states that Housekeeping in any resort will get a bath bench for you. Sorry! I stand corrected! Ooops - I hope I haven't caused any issues with wrong advice.

All is fine! No worries. Now by the time I go in December what if I don't need the special room or bath chair? Although DH says I will always use a bath hair since the shower was where I got my first injury...lol...

I always pack a rubber Mat for the shower to prevent slipping.
