    Flying to Orlando on Saturday for the first time.
    I have heard of the Guest Assistance Card,can anyone give me any information on this ie How do you get one?,where do you go to get one?etc.I am disabled and will require a wheelchair no matter what park I go to.I do have a letter from my Doctor to verify my disability although it is obvious.
    Would appreciate any info.

    Robbo, welcome!! All the information you need can be found in the new disABILITIES FAQ - just click on the link in my signature! Let us know if you have any questions.

    If you have wheelchair, you may not need the GAC... it depends on your medical condition. :D

    I hope you have a wonderful trip!

    Similar thing, but I am afraid I don't have any details. From what I have heard, Seaworld and Universal are more wheelchair accessible. You will have a great time!

    Teri,
    I don't find Seaworld or Universal any more accessible. For example, I went to get food at the Beer Garden area and could not even get in line. NO ACCESS AT ALL. When I asked the castmember what to do I was told to get someone else in my group to get the food. Nice since I was alone. HAd to find a manager so I could get food.

    that is interesting... Wheelsie had mentioned that the rides were more accessible, I guess that doesn't extend to other services. Was that your experience as well?

    pretty much. If you can't get your own food and drink and shop in the stores independently then to me it isn't accessible. There are not many rides I go on at Seaworld.
