    My daughter is 12yrs and has an injury to her foot that requires her to use crutches and absolutley not put weight on that foot. What do you suggest? Knee scooter or wheelchair. She has used both in the past. We are staying st a Disney resort. Suggestions?

    Hi, Deidra!

    I really think this is a topic for you to discuss with your physician.  Let your doctor know there is extensive walking and ask what will be best.   Plan ahead for plenty of breaks so your princess can rest her foot. 

    You may want to contact your resort to let them know of your daughter's medical condition to request a first floor room to avoid steps/elevators.  You might also request being close to transportation to save a few steps to the bus stop.

    I hope your daughter is up and around soon!  Hopefully some magic and pixie dust in Walt Disney World will bring a smile to her face!
