    Coming Feb 2-6, 2012. Arrive 11:30 and leave 4:00. It will be me and my mom. This will be her first time and doesn't walk well. What is your opinion on park hopper? I have never used it before, just one park per day. Will it be useful or too tiring?

    Hi Julie,

    I had this same issue with my mom.  She couldn't really walk well and needed to use a portable oxygen tank.  To resolve this I would rent her a wheelchair and stick to one park per day.  Now, you know your mom.  If you think she can handle a really long day get the park hopper. 

    You don't have to worry about the rides, many of the attractions have wheelchair entrances.  Also, please go to Guest Services at the first park when you arrive and get her a Guest Assistance Card.  This will also help her have shorter wait times in line.  It permits her and up to 5 Guests in her party to enter together.

    Have a wonderful trip, and let us know if you have any other questions.

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
