    Hi, we will be going to disneyworld for a week in july. My husband has cancer and has trouble getting around. He can walk but gets tired easily. I was wondering which parks have hills to climb or difficult to get around. which parks should I rent and ecv.

    Hi Stephanie!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    All of the parks are relatively flat.  However, I recommend getting an ECV for your husband.  Disney's Animal Kingdom is huge and has some places where the paths get very narrow; that can be hard to navigate if the park is crowded.  Epcot is probably the easiest to get around when there are large crowds, but the park is also huge.   The smallest park is Disney's Hollywood Studios and that is still a large park for somebody who gets tired easily.  If you want to try not renting one, I suggest trying out the Studios first and then the Magic Kingdom.  I definitely recommend renting an ECV for both Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom and not even trying to have your husband walk those two parks.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
