WDW Resorts--Handicap Accessibility
All of the WDW Resorts are handicap accessible, but some have better accommodations for people with special needs.
Some resorts are very large and very spread out and maybe difficult to get around.
Value Resorts are very large and have no internal bus system. The best place to stay at a Value Resort is in a "preferred room," which is closer to the main buildings (food court, main lobby).
All of the Moderate Resorts have an internal bus system, with the exception of the Port Orleans Resort French Quarter. The Port Orleans French Quarter is much smaller than it's sister resort the Riverside and is much easier to get around. It has half the number of rooms as the Riverside.
Bus - Can accommodate a wheelchair/ ECV (32"-48")
Monorails - Are accessible
Boats - Not all boats can accommodate a wheelchair/ECV. The large ferries that take guests from the TTC to the Magic Kingdom can accommodate them. The smaller ferries can only accommodate folding wheelchairs.

All resorts are good at accommodating special diets. Disney asks that you call at least 48 hours ahead and tell the chief at the resort that you're staying at what your special dietary needs are.
*If you are planning on dining outside of your resort, it is good to make reservations for the table service restaurants and tell the reservationists about your special dietary needs.
