002: Touring with Infants and Rolling through Rain!

This Episode of Special Mouse is dedicated to the memory of Nolan Woodall. Rest in peace, my friend.

Feature Interview: Jennifer Lissak, author of The Disney Babies Blog, chats with me about the special needs of infants at Disney. Please visit her blog for more information, particularly about Baby Wearing.

 

 This is one of Jennifer’s favorite resources for Baby Wearing products: Carry Me Away

You can connect with Jennifer on Twitter @Disneybabiesblg and on Facebook at Jennifer Dreispul Lissak.

 

Our Special Trip Report comes from Melissa Knight, author of Disney on Wheels: Rolling with the Magic.

Melissa and her husband traveled from Georgia to Walt Disney World in May, 2012 — the same week that Tropical Storm Alberto was visiting Florida! Melissa gives us insight into the accessibility of many rides and attractions, including the new Dumbo at the Magic Kingdom, Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Mission Space at Epcot.

Melissa posts videos of herself utilizing many accessible attractions at Walt Disney World on her blog, so please check it out!

 

I’m thrilled to announce that Melissa Knight will be joining me during future episodes of Special Mouse for a special feature called Disney on Wheels!  Melissa has a lot of accessibility tips to share that I hope will benefit our listeners with a variety of mobility issues.

You can connect with Melissa on Twitter @DisneyOnWheels and on Facebook at Melissa Knight Coulter.

Thanks to all of you who have posted such lovely Tweets on Twitter and to those of you who have “liked” us on Facebook! Thanks also for all the lovely reviews on iTunes; I’m so happy to have your feedback!

Episode 001 Introducing the Special Mouse Podcast!

Welcome to the first episode of the Special Mouse Podcast! I hope to bring you both information and inspiration when it comes to Disney travel and your extra challenges.

In the Introduction, I share my own Disney-with-special-needs experience with you (my youngest child has Autism) and offer a bit of insight into why I created this podcast.

Feature Interview: Colette Krahenbuhl from Give Kids The World Village in Central Florida.

Colette details the history of Give Kids The World, a non-profit organization whose mission is “to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to the Central Florida attractions…”

We discuss the many ways in which listeners can support GKTW through the sharing of time, talent and/or resources.

To learn more, please visit the website at Give Kids The World. You can tweet with GKTW on Twitter @GKTWVillage

Your Special Trip Report: Bill and Tracy from Southern Illinois, USA.

Bill and Tracy share highlights from their latest (of many) trips to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Bill has Cerebral Palsy and lives with both mobility and speech impairments. We discuss the complexities of  air travel with a power wheelchair and hotel room accessibility at both the Pop Century Resort and the Boardwalk Villas. Tracy shares some of her experiences traveling and touring WDW as a person of size.

 

Just wait until you hear about the surprise Bill planned for Tracy during their Private Dining Experience at the Grand Floridian!  So romantic! *sigh*

If you would like to connect with Bill or Tracy you can find them on Facebook at Tracy Brooks and Bill Kaiser, and on Twitter @mrsksomeday and @kaiserb.

Thanks for listening! ~ Kathy
