Disney World is the “happiest place on earth,” but planning a Disney World trip can be an ordeal. This is why there are hundreds of different travel books helping families plan their perfect vacation. However, there were no books that helped families with kids with disabilities. Mom, Amy Schimmer noticed this when she was planning a Disney vacation with her 19-year-old son on the Autism Spectrum Disorder and decided that this void in the literature needed to be filled. She went on to write “Mouse Ears for Everyone: A Guide To Walt Disney World with Guest with Special Needs.” The book includes information and tips on dealing with accessibility, sensory issues, dietary needs, emotional health, visual and hearing impairments and medical concerns. There are chapters on hotels, traveling, preparing for the trip and what to do at each park. Read more about Schimmer and her book here
