    We have a Disney vacation planned, but husband will be having knee surgery right before we leave. Will he be able to get a guest assistance card since he will be using crutches and not able to stand for long periods of time?

    While I can't guarantee that your husband will be given a Guest Assistance Card, Cynthia, I would guess that it is very likely.  Guest Assistance Cards are meant to assist guests of all ages and abilities to easily navigate the parks.  Considering that your husband will be so fresh off of knee surgery, I'd venture to guess that he will qualify.  Just be sure to stop by Guest Relations as soon as you enter any of the four major theme parks.  When you speak with a Cast Member there, be sure to offer as many precise details about your husband's temporary condition as you can.  The Cast Member will do everything in his or her power to ensure that your family can easily experience the attractions within the theme parks.  This can include setting you up with an alternate area to wait--somewhere that your husband can sit while you wait in the queue.  You might also consider getting him a wheelchair, as that would enable him to sit wherever you go.  Good luck, Cynthia!  Have a wonderful vacation.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
