    Coming to WDW in Feb. Six people in party and Dad has Parkinsons. Symptoms been getting worse and we're concerned in waiting in lines with him. Wanting to know what services may be helpful. Thanks!

    Hi, Stephanie!  The first thing I'd recommend to you is the Guest Assistance Card.  You can go to Guest Services at any of the theme parks to pick one up.  The Guest Assistance Card allows cast members to provide whatever conveniences they can for your dad.  This may mean allowing him into an area where he can sit comfortably while waiting to enter an attraction, or allowing access to a Fast Pass line so you don't have to wait in the regular queue.  If he needs extra time to board a vehicle in an attraction, they can help with that as well.

    There are wheelchair rentals available, and there are electronic convenience vehicles (scooters) that you may want to look into.  All of the information on renting can be found HERE.

    I cannot think of a better place to be for someone with need for special assistance.  I hope that you find your experience absolutely magical!
