When You Can’t Travel

When You Can’t Travel

My Rockin Disabled Life

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I live with a disability called Spina Bifida and have more physical challenges than most people. I am on a mission to help break disability stigma and help you unlearn all the poor disability representation in the media.

    As much as it sucks that she cannot travel, I am so glad she is close enough to enjoy Disney World. Disney’s excellent accessibility standards are why I spend so much time at Disneyland versus traveling. While it still takes a lot out of me, it is nothing compared to traveling anywhere farther. Thanks to you and your friend for sharing her challenges!

      Your welcome I am glad you enjoyed it and we were happy to share! Yeah it can be depressing not to be able to travel but the good thing is that she lives in Florida where there are tons of local fun things to do.

    Thanks for doing this Post. I am in UK and a carer for my husband who has a rare form of muscular dystrophy. Foreign travel seems like impossible at the moment as the planes would have the equipment my husband would need. Florida and Disneyland sounds like heaven to me at the moment. I can relate to Karly as my husband needs similar equipment as her and it’s not often available in hotels. Even if we do manage to hire the hoyer lift, shower chair etc – sometimes the hotel rooms don’t have enough space under the beds to use the hoyer lift or they don’t have walk in showers to enable the use of a shower chair. Also, The holiday becomes expensive when you need to take extra carers with you. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a list of hotel and other holiday places which had all equipment needed by disabled people? Sometimes when a hotel mentions that they have accessible rooms, it’s just a disable room with low beds and nothing else. Sorry I am just rambling….

      Thanks for commenting and it’s okay to ramble because I do it all the time in my posts that sometimes I don’t think I even make sense so there is no need to apologize for it! would be nice if there was a list of accessible hotels and if airplanes made an effort to be accessible because that would make it so disabled people could travel outside of the state they live in.
