    Anna, asked Kay but asking you as well based on your bio. If you had someone in a wheelchair who needed to take frequent breaks to watch people, where would you take your breaks and why. Going to all parks, so would like a spot or two for each park.

    Hi, Helen!  I've been to the parks often with my dad, who was in a wheelchair; and my mother-in-law, who uses a wheel chair when we are at the theme parks.  My first suggestion may not be a possibility, depending on the sensitivities of the person in the wheelchair, but my dad - a non-smoker - used to LOVE to go sit in the areas reserved for smokers.  They have several of them scattered through all four theme parks, and they are usually well shaded and comfortable - and we were always fortunate not to encounter too many smokers!

    In the Magic Kingdom, any place on Main Street is a good place to sit and people watch; and another good place is just outside the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor and Buzz Lightyear area in Tomorrowland.

    At EPCOT, anywhere along the water through the World Showcase can be a nice place to sit and relax and people watch.  And to really get a glimpse of the crowds, anywhere in the vicinity of Test Track - if you don't mind the noise!

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, right in front of the Chinese Theater is a good place to see some sights!  My dad also liked to sit near Star Tours.

    Animal Kingdom has lots of spots also that are nice to just sit and people watch.  It's pretty shady near the entrance for the train to Rafiki's Planet Watch, and it's busy enough to be interesting.  And anywhere near the Tree of Life will be busy and have lots of people wandering by!
