Morgan’s Wonderland in San Antonio is a go-to place for our extended family. We love going there with our nephews, Nathan and Caden, and niece, Addie. It's a fun place where we all get to enjoy family fun without any physical barriers.
Nathan uses a wheelchair. At Morgan's Wonderland, we all can join Nathan as he rides the carousel, the train, and the Ferris Wheel.
The kids get a chance to play on the wheelchair-accessible playground. From swings and slides to the sand circle and interactive Music Garden, everyone is on equal ground. Getting to experience Nathan’s first Ferris Wheel ride along with his brother and sister was an exciting experience for the whole family.
This year, we are looking forward to visiting Morgan’s Inspiration Island—it just opened this summer. San Antonio’s hot summers are finally conquered with this fully accessible water paradise.
The River Boat Adventure travels through jungle foliage—complete with tropical birds and animals. With 5 water play areas providing cooling fun, there’s no chance of staying dry. Shipwreck Island, Hang-10 Harbor, Castaway Bay, Rainbow Reef, and Calypso Cove deliver themed water fun in a fully accessible location.
Can’t get your wheelchair wet? As usual, Morgan’s has already thought of that (3 times over)!
Not only do they provide a waterproof push-stroller for guests needing help from a caregiver, but also a rigid-frame manual wheelchair for guests who can push themselves. The third is a waterproof PneuChair™ air-powered chair. Ten of these innovative power chairs are earmarked for the opening of the water park. They’ve even thought of those needing use of a waterproof chair, giving roomy changing areas to use for private chair transfers.
This summer will see the Tarwater Clan, sunscreen and beach bags in hand, at Morgan’s Wonderland. This old auntie loves nothing better than spending time with my little Tarwaters, and a day at Morgan’s Wonderland fills that bill. Soon, we’ll have new, fun, wet ways to create memories. These memories will be priceless!

When you have a kid with a disability or special health-care needs, your priorities shift. It’s funny to compare your priorities from years ago to your priorities today. Here’s how our family changed when we had our daughter, Casey.
