Thanks for all of the great info in this thread. My MIL is going to be in a room like this during our upcoming stay. She will have a mobility scooter too. We rented her one because her everyday one doesn't have the battery power to make it through a day at WDW.

We are staying in the Garden Wing with a Standard View. While I would love to be in the Tower, we just can't justify the cost for a "pretty view".

Thanks to everyone who has contributed. I look forward to learning more stuff as it's posted.

The shower had a seat that lowered

The shower area wasnt ideal for us as we couldnt wash him from the side due to the wall being there. The only way we could properly shower our son was to get in the shower with him.
the room was a great size and had lots of space.
Outside area.

i have another website that has pics of the accessible rooms, not sure if i can post the site here or not?????

and a question... has anyone in a wheelchair used the smaller boat that runs to the comtemporary??? my daughter is 14 and has spina bifida, she walks with crutches and uses her chair for the park, she can transfer. can i get her folded chair on that boat? is it hard to transfer to that boat? we are staying at fort wilderness in august. we always use the bigger boat with no problem. but just thought it would be easier to use the smaller boat to get to chef mickeys!!

If you have that site, I would really appreciate it. I am going in March, and I need an accessible room. I am desperate for pics of the tower. New pics. I have old ones, before the renovations, but would love some new ones. If you still have that site, I would really appreciate it. I have been searching high and low for weeks. Thanks so much in advance!

Karcia.

Stayed in a tower handicap room last year. We where on the floor directly above the monorail in a handicap room. We had a good view of the park and the fireworks. I was still able to transfer last year so could access the balcony without an issue. The problem we had was charging the ECV as we could not find a plug on the wall with the tv. We put the ECV in the shower at night to charge.
