Wheelchair Accessible Hotels. Reservation tips

Getting accurate information about the accessibility of a hotel can be a little tricky and sometimes frustrating. Most hotel employees don't intentionally give you bad information. It happens because they don't understand what it is you are asking or they don't understand the importance of their answers.

Hotels offering accessible accommodation must understand that every guest has different needs and they should be committed to ensure that their hotel facilities are accessible to all guests equally. Accessibility is not standardized in the hotel industry and can be easily interpreted in different ways by hotel employees. We suggest that rather than looking for “wheelchair friendly” hotels in the internet, always talk directly to the hotel property. Contacting the hotel directly is must. When contacting the hotel tell them that you need to talk to someone who can give you some details about their rooms equipped for guests with disabilities. Ask them to tell you about the bathrooms. This will give you a real good idea how familiar they are with the rooms.

This is a checklist of things to ask the hotel:

Common areas:
1. designated handicap parking with a priority location in the parking lot.
2. step free access (level or ramped) and/or lift access to main entrance.
3. automated door opening.
4. ground level/lobby level accessible washroom.
5. elevator to above ground accessible accommodation.
6. level or ramped access to public areas.

Rooms:
1. wider entry and bathroom doorways – external 80 cm, internal 75 cm. Easy to open?
2. mid-height light switches and power outlets
3. lever type door handles
4. maneuvering space on each side of the bed – 90 cm
5. roll in shower
6. wheeled shower chair and/or wall mounted shower seat
7. grab bars in bathroom
8. raised toilet
9. lower hanging space in closet

Neighbourhood:
1. proximity to markets, pubs, restaurants ... up to 500 m distant.
2. proximity to health services.

Tips:
1. Call hotel directly.
2. Keep notes: names, dates, times, topics, what’s agreed and confirmation numbers. Take these notes and print outs with you on your vacation.
3. Ask to talk to someone who is familiar with handicap rooms because they have been in them.
4. Ask questions that will elicit information rather than a yes or a no. Always adk them to describe in detail
5. Check that you have a credit card GUARANTEE for an accessible room and a confirmation number. Not just a REQUEST for an accessible room if available at the time of check in.
6. Reconfirm your reservation for a guaranteed accessible room a couple of days ahead.
7. When you arrive, check out the room before you check in.
8. Again, take your notes and print outs with you on your vacation.

More tips:
Be prepared, in the unlikely event that:
1. the hotel does not have the accessible room available for you when you arrive. The hotel will need to find you an accessible room, even in another hotel. (See #6 just above) “Where will you put us up for the night?”
2. the complimentary hotel shuttle may not be accessible. The hotel will need to accommodate the service in some other way. “How will you provide alternate shuttle service for us?”

Be cool, be persistent, use a sense of humour and your vacation will be much more a pleasure than a nightmare.

Tarita's Travel Connections. Travel for all.

We would like to introduce you to Tarita Davenock. Tarita is an excellent person, a great entrepreneur in the accessible travel industry and the owner of Tarita's Travel Connections.

Tarita was born into travel. Though her parents are from the beautiful green isles of Fiji, she started life in the UK and moved shortly thereafter to Canada, living in various small British Columbia towns and ending up in lovely Lantzville. As a woman of Indian descent, she speaks English and Hindi fluently while also being able to converse in Punjabi and Gujarati very well. she loves people of all cultures, and loves bringing other cultures to those who are yearning to see them.

At the age of 29, Tarita was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and was struck with the realization that her life would never be the same. Knowing that her best way forward was to take hold of that life and ensure that its direction was one of her own choosing, that the MS was not going to control her future, she seized on a passion for travel she had nursed since childhood. Some years have pass now and Tarita has found her place as an expert in creating dream vacations for those who thought dream vacations were for other people. As a Certified Special Needs Travel Advocate, she takes great pride in ensuring that, regardless of your level of mobility or ability, you will have the experience of a lifetime.

Tarita's "leitmotiv" is that travel should be Inclusive, not Exclusive. At her travel agency they arrange vacations for those with various special needs; deaf, blind, walkers, wheelchair, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Down Syndrome, etc. for adults and children to wherever they dream of visiting. Her company arranges tailored vacations that accommodate their specific needs, arrange various transportation; flights, trains, bus etc. I can also look after their travel insurance needs.

For Tarita is evident that the media and travel suppliers need some education on what is needed to accommodate the special needs travel niche. Perhaps this is her 'calling' in life to create a conversation demanding inclusion in travel.

Her website at Tarita's Travel Connections shares a bit about Tarita and her acessible journeys as well as highlights some fantastic accessible travel destinations. There are specific tours as well as various videos showing trips for specific needs; blind, deaf, and wheelchair travel.

At Accessible Madrid we are proud to work toguether with professional and determined people like Tarita. We are proud to share her values and goal. Our aim is to improve people's quality of life by offering top quality services at the travel industry.

Disney World in a Wheelchair

Disney World is known for creating magical and memorable vacations, but did you know the amusement park also goes all out to make dreams come true for visitors who use wheelchairs or mobility scooters? In fact, these guests have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of rides and attractions, as well as comfortably stay in the beautifully themed Disney resorts, plus see all kinds of shows, dine in fabulous restaurants, use Disney’s free transportation system and … the list goes on! In fact, many wheelchair users find Disney World to be one of the most exciting, fun and physically easy vacations they’ve ever experienced.

Should I use a wheelchair even if I don’t normally use one?
If you have mobility challenges or conditions that cause pain or fatigue, you’ll have a far better time if you stay off your feet as much as possible to avoid any flare-up. Keep in mind that you’ll be on your feet almost the entire time you’re in the park, which is ginormous. Animal Kingdom alone is a walloping 500 acres -- we’re talking roughly the size of 250 NYC blocks. Sometimes you’ll be waiting in line for as long as an hour or 2, especially if you want to try out the most popular rides like Toy Story Mania in Hollywood Studios. Other popular attractions, like Kilimanjaro Safaris in Animal Kingdom and Soarin' in Epcot, have lines over 1/4 mile long -- and there won’t be anywhere to sit while you wait, either.

If this sounds uncomfortable, then you should use a wheelchair or electronic convenience vehicle (ECV). Also, if you’re 18 or older, and physically able to manage it, consider using an ECV rather than a manual wheelchair that must be pushed. It’s easier for the rest of your party since they won’t have to push your wheelchair, and it gives you freedom.

I’ll be in a wheelchair (or ECV). What will I be able to do in the Disney World parks?
This will depend on your condition, but as far as accessibility is concerned, you’ll be able to participate in the majority of the attractions in the 4 main parks. There are a small number of rides that have inaccessible queues, such as Tomorrowland Transit Authority in Magic Kingdom. However if you’re physically able to tolerate it, you’ll be able to ride on roller coasters and thrill rides like Rock 'n' Roller Coaster and Mission: Space. Some rides, such as Mission: SPACE and Star Tours, will require transferring, and Disney policy states that cast members (Disney employees) are not permitted to lift you. However they can support you in a variety of ways depending upon the ride. For example they can always offer you a steadying arm, and on some rides, such as in the Haunted Mansion, they can slow or stop the ride car so you can board.

Are there any tame rides or slower-paced attractions at Disney World?
If you need to stick to tame rides with mild motion, you’ll find that there’s a huge variety -- in addition to Soarin’ and Haunted Mansion, there’s Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, for example. If rides just aren’t for you, you’ll still find plenty to enjoy. There are theater and show-style attractions like Animal Kingdom’s Festival of the Lion King and Finding Nemo - The Musical, parades such as Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Electrical Parade, fireworks like Magic Kingdom’s Wishes, dining experiences in any one of the hundreds of themed restaurants around Disney World, and shopping found throughout the parks and Downtown Disney.

How can I find all these attractions throughout Disney World?
When you enter the Disney World park, simply stop by Guest Relations, found toward the front of each park (ask a cast member for the specific location) to request a Guide for Guests with Disabilities. This will give you accessibility information, including basic directions for all of the attractions. Also make sure to visit Disney’s Frequently Asked Questions page for guests with disabilities.

Can I bypass lines if I’m in a wheelchair or ECV?
Wouldn’t that be great? Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. Disney has been steadily altering their attraction queues so that guests in wheelchairs and ECVs can stay in the regular queue with everyone else. There are still some attractions, such as Spaceship Earth in Epcot, which have a handicapped entrance, but this doesn’t mean you’ll be moved ahead of everyone else. In fact, on some rides, like Toy Story Mania, you may wait longer than you would have in the regular queue because there are a limited number of accessible ride cars.

Can I use the Disney World Transportation System?
Buses, monorails and most boats at Disney World are accessible. Transportation is free, and can be found throughout the resorts, parks and Downtown Disney. If you’re staying at a Disney World resort, you’ll be able to get around without ever driving. Click here for more information about Disney World transportation, and find out about the accessibility in Disney World boats

Where do I get a wheelchair at Disney World?
Wheelchairs and ECVs are available for rent by Disney at the 4 main parks and Downtown Disney. They’re available on a first-come, first-served basis, and can’t be reserved in advance. Disney does run out of them on busy days. (To gauge busy days, here’s one potential planning tool.) To increase your chances of getting a wheelchair or ECV if you’re visiting during a crowded period, try to get to the park very early in the day. Wheelchairs and ECVs can’t be taken outside the park they were rented from. However if you rent a wheelchair/ECV and visit another park on the same day, once you get to the wheelchair/ECV rental location at the second park, you’ll be able to get a wheelchair/ECV if they still have them available.

What if Disney World is all out of wheelchairs -- can I rent from an outside vendor?
Sure, if you want to avoid the possibility of being stranded without a wheelchair/ECV for the day, consider renting a wheelchair from a Disney-affiliated outside vendor. The good news is that the cost of renting from an outside vendor tends to be lower than renting from Disney. As an added bonus, you’ll be sure to have a wheelchair or ECV anywhere you go during your entire visit. That includes all of the parks, all of the entertainment areas like Downtown Disney and your resort. Call Disney at (407) 824-2222 and ask for the approved vendor list for wheelchairs and ECVs. Only these companies will be permitted to drop off and pick up your rental at your resort without you being present.

Air Access. Air travel for all

Air Access is a concept that facilitates air travel for passengers with reduced mobility by enabling an easier transition from gate to aircraft. Air Access is a much needed concept for the future of air travel that aims to meet the needs of an increasingly older and less mobile population. The concept design aims to reduce the indignity and discrimination that passengers with reduced mobility face when travelling by air.

Wacth video Air Access

Paul Priestman, founding director of PriestmanGoode, explains: “We have been designing aircraft interiors for over fifteen years and always work to improve the entire passenger journey, from home to destination. At present there are some accessibility regulations on aircraft, however they cater for only the most basic requirements.As a result, passengers with special needs often face considerable difficulties when travelling by air.“These difficulties generally go unnoticed" — very few members of the public are aware of the anxiety and discomfort PRMs can experience when travelling. But it is a matter of equality that people with reduced mobility should have the same rights to a quality passenger experience that able-bodied people have.” Priestman continues “As designers we strive to improve things, not just for the immediate future, but for the long-term.

A demographic shift is sweeping across Europe: the population is ageing, life expectancy is increasing, obesity levels are rising and PRMs account for a larger proportion of the population than ever before. Air Access is a much-needed concept for the future of airline travel that will provide a pleasant experience for passengers with disabilities or reduced mobility.

Why do we need Air Access?
Currently, around 20% of the adult population has some form of disability or mobile difficulty. For this demographic air travel can be fraught with problems. Ground and airline staff are often inadequately trained and unaware of their legal obligations. The absence of a systematic process for boarding and disembarking PRMs can lead to confusion and complications for airline staff.

For PRMs, being physically assisted into and out of airplane seats can be stressful and demeaning, and in-flight toileting can be difficult. It’s imperative that we start thinking today about implementing change to cater for future
generations of air travellers.

How it works
The Air Access concept consists of two elements: a detachable wheelchair by which passengers can be transported onto and off of the plane, and a fixed-frame aisle seat on the aircraft into which the wheelchair is mated to create a regular airline seat.

1. Ground services staff assist the passenger into the Air Access wheelchair seat in the departure gate or on the jet-way, where there is ample space to manoeuvre.
2. When seated, the passenger is wheeled onto the plane.
3. Once on-board, the wheelchair’s 360-degree pivoting wheels enable it to be slid sideways into the fixed-frame aisle seat without the passenger needing to get up.
4. When the two elements are positioned, they are locked together for the duration of the flight.
5. On arrival, ground staff simply unlock the wheelchair seat, slide it out into the aisle and wheel the passenger to the jet-way or arrival gate.
6. Once there, the passenger returns to his or her own wheelchair or zimmer frame, or transfers into the airport’s wheelchair.

Benefits of Air Access
The Air Access seat could be installed in every aisle seat of the aircraft. In a wide-body this would be four seats per row, meaning dozens of PRMs could travel on any given flight. This is particularly useful when large groups of passengers with reduced mobility travel together e.g. paralympic athletes.

• Increased safety for passengers. Passengers do not need to be handled by airline staff in the tight confines of the aircraft.
• Easier to use toilet facilities in flight. Passengers only need assistance to unlock their seat and wheel to the nearest toilet.
• The chair has a removable seat pad. Many passengers with serious disabilities, for instance spinal injuries, need to sit on their own purpose-designed cushions. Passengers can customise the Air Access seat to suit their individual needs.
• Anyone can sit in the seat. As the access seat integrates seamlessly into the aircraft, the airline does not lose seating space if there are no PRMs travelling.
• The Air Access concept is suitable for all aircraft types, though offers particular benefits to long haul, wide body aircraft—both for passenger experience and cost benefit to airlines.
