Hello, I am cruising on the Disney Magic January 18th - 26th out of Galveston. This will be my first cruise on Disney and am wondering what their procedures are for disabled guests during the Muster Drill? I appreciate your guidance.

On the Wonder, we met in one of the restaurants. Arrived a little early. They let us go a few minutes early to make sure we could get an elevator.

You attend the muster drill like everyone else. They generally let you leave a few minutes early so you can easier get an elevator (but not always - we had one drill where we ended up being the last to leave the theatre and ending up waiting 30 minutes for an elevator to get back to the cabin). Oh, and you are not required to bring your life jackets.
