Project Angel Fares is a 501c3 nonprofit created in 2012. Project Angel Fares serves to provide families who have a child with a disability or special need the opportunity to visit and enjoy the “Ultra-Accessible” theme parks of Morgan’s Wonderland and Morgan’s Inspiration Island located in San Antonio, Texas. These families that would otherwise not be able to afford such a trip are provided with a 4 day, 3 night trip of a lifetime, with all travel expenses paid. We invite you to join us on our journey to give a child an experience of a lifetime!

We do provide (1) one power scooter, and (2) two wheelchairs. If this will suffice all you will need to show is a valid ID in order to use the scooter/cruiser; if not already in use. We cannot guarantee that either of these chairs will be available during the time of your visit, as these chairs are leased on a first come first serve basis. Also, these chairs have a weight limit of 350 pounds.

To provide a fun, clean and beautiful environment free of physical and economic barriers that all individuals – regardless of age, special need, or disability – can come to and enjoy.
Many people don’t know this, but we are actually a 501c3 nonprofit organization, and the only Morgan’s Wonderland in the world! To build Morgan’s Wonderland, it took a team of out-of-the-box thinkers (doctors, special-ed teachers, caregivers, therapists, parents of special-needs children, etc.); cooperative vendors and constructors; and an investment of $35 million. Since we admit anyone with a physical or cognitive disability free of charge, our ongoing challenge is to continue aggressive fundraising so we can remain financially viable. Because we are not in the franchising business, we find that the more people who find out about our mission of inclusion through play, the more invested communities become to build one of their own. We’re truly grateful for your interest in our endeavors to help the special-needs community, and we offer you our best wishes for success with your venture!

Morgan’s Wonderland has a single location in San Antonio, Texas. We are located right off of I-35 and Wurzbach Parkway at 5223 David Edwards Drive, San Antonio, TX 78233.

Morgan’s Wonderland is Ultra-Accessible™. While other theme parks accommodate people with disabilities and/or special needs, Morgan’s Wonderland was created with them in mind. This unique park was created to enable everyone to come together and have fun, regardless of their abilities. However, instead of building a park and then making accommodations for individuals with special needs, our Morgan’s Wonderland team began by identifying what obstacles and barriers occur within the special-needs community. Then designed our park to help individuals with special needs overcome those challenges and be able to have fun like those without limitations.

The Gordon Hartman Family Foundation has a helpful Resource Directory. The Foundation provides a simple-yet-effective tool for finding current information on existing services available for a wide range of disabilities. We are committed to helping you find workable solutions to your needs, so please contact us if you need further assistance.

Morgan’s Wonderland welcomes our friends with special needs! We offer many unique features such as Braille signage, a 3-D park model, and a service-animal rest area to make the park fun and accessible to our friends who have hearing loss and visual impairments.

On general park operation days, we do not allow vendors in the park. There are select events throughout the year in which we invite like-minded organizations and companies to set up in the park. If you would like to be notified of these events, please fill out this form.

To Help Prepare For a Visit

Morgan’s Wonderland was built on the promise of providing free admission to anyone with a special need. We try to be as open-minded as possible when a guest claims to have such a need. On the other hand, we must take in a reasonable amount of revenue to keep the park in operation.

It really comes down to relying on an individual’s honesty and integrity when he or she requests free admittance because of a special need. Here we will only ask for the diagnosis of any guest with a special need that will be accompanying you. We do not require any proof of an individual’s special need.

Both Morgan’s Wonderland and Morgan’s Inspiration Island are seasonal parks. Morgan’s Wonderland is operational March – December and Morgan’s Inspiration Island is open May – September. Hours of operation vary by season. You can view our calendar here.

Yes, picnics are welcome! Although food may be brought in, there are no secure storage areas for items such as ice chests and coolers. Only containers with specialty food items and medical needs should be in glass containers.

Parking is FREE to visit both Morgan’s Wonderland and Morgan’s Inspiration Island.
