Bumping this up so we don't lose the information. Maybe it should be a sticky?

No fear of losing it.

There is a link to this thread in the post about resort information on the disABILITIES FAQs thread.

I also have some ways of getting to things that have disappeared off the visible pages of this board (I have secret ways to enter the invisible space).

Fort Wilderness is accessible with their pathways and the way the campsites are situated, but distances can be a problem.

Your could check into renting a golf cart for getting around Ft. Wilderness and that would cut down on some of the walking to the bus stop and some of the internal walking from the bus stop to Trails End.

Also she could look into renting an ECV to scoot around Ft. Wilderness. They are slower than the golf carts, but she could skip the internal busses and just scoot around the campground to the external buses and also use it in the parks. (FYI, I use one to scoot around Ft. Wilderness and between waiting on the bus, the multiple internal stops on the bus, I beat the bus to both Outpost and Settlement from Loop 1500 just about every time.)

You can also request a site near a bus stop, but then you might be far away from a comfort station, and that won't alleviate the walk from the bus stop to Trails End or the Trading Post.

I don't remember if this is already in here or not, but room 4815 is an accessible Grand Villa (GV) at OKW. GVs have 3 bedrooms and 4 baths and can sleep up to 12 people.

You enter the GV right from ground level. The front door had a high and low viewer to look outside the door and there was a doorbell (a loud buzzer rang when the doorbell was pushed). There is plenty of manouvering space and my DD's wheelchair fit under all the tables without swinging away her armrests (the height of her armrests is about 27 and 3/4 inches from the floor). The kitchen has a roll under sink (because of that, it has shallower than usual sinks and has no garbage disposal). The stove has controls on the front.
The Master bed is about 6 inches lower than usual. It was approximately the level of the top of the seat on my DD's wheelchair (about 23 inches). The master bath had a roll under sink, toilet and a roll in shower with a fold down seat in the same room. There was also a 2nd showerhead which could be either used as a handhead showerhead or attached to a bar in the shower that allowed the height to be adjusted. There was a whirlpool and a sink in the other part of the bathroom, along with a closet, which had a lower bar and shelf that would be accessible from a wheelchair. A wheelchair could be driven up right next to the whirlpool and there was a sitting position right at the outside corner.
There was a 2nd bathroom with a walk in shower on the main floor. That bathroom was not accessible. The stairway to get upstairs had rails on both sides and had a landing halfway up (which was appreciated by my MIL and FIL who benefitted from both). The top floor had 2 bedrooms, with their own baths. The smaller bedroom (at the top of the stairs) had 2 full size beds. The other bedroom was a lot larger and had 2 queen beds, plus a lounge chair. Since the upstairs is only accessible by stairs, it is not wheelchair accessible.

The bus stop was right across the street from our front door and there were several handicapped parking spots near our front door.

Is room 9462 at ASMu Jazz still accessable? With all the renovations taking place, and converting rooms to suites I'm not sure if it is available as a room with a roll in shower.

Okw

We just returned from OKW and we were in an accessable room. It was room 2111 and we had a beautiful view of the pond with fountain and center golf course.

We didn't request an accessable room but they gave us one. The only problem we had was that Hunter is potty training the toliet was so high up we had to put the laundry basket in front for him to stand on.

The room was wonderful~
