Mobile Theme Park Parking

Can anyone tell me if there are any special arrangements for parking at the Disney parks if someone in your party is disabled?

Thanks

Yes you will be directed to special parking if you have a blue badge itís normally accepted at the theme parks but itís worth applying for a temp red tag to use in shopping centres at restaurants etc as if you donít have one and are fined the penalty can be heavy
Itís easy to get one

Click on the Useful Information thread above - in the Disabled Parking thread there is the e-mail address to apply for a red tag before you go and all the information you need.

If you look on the special needs thread there's a post dated 4jan this year where ChrisS has posted very useful information and a link to actually down load the form you need

Agreed! As someone who is visually impaired I hate parking at MK as not only is it a trek but you have to pass under a bridge which is dark and I struggle with. Last time I made us park at EPCOT and got the monorail over as then it gave us an excuse to go into EPCOT for a drink before heading home and meant less awkward areas to maneuver. I appreciate for most people this just adds time on to your journey but for us it worked well.
