    I am about to have a double bypass surgery and will not be able to take part in rides and most shows etc but want my kids to experience the parks again. is there a spectator pass that will let me in so i can walk around while the family take part?

    Welcome to planDisney, Ian. First and foremost, best of luck with your upcoming surgery. Having something to look forward to is good for the soul, and a trip to Walt Disney World will hopefully act like a tonic in your recovery! 

    Ian, although there is no spectator pass available, we can access some incredible offers from the U.K. and Ireland. I also will tell anyone who'll listen, that trips to Walt Disney World are about so much more than rides. The immersive atmosphere is magical, the Cast Members are outstanding, and I'd defy anyone not to be impressed by the Pavilions at World Showcase in EPCOT. Where else can you experience 11 unique cultures in one day? I guarantee that you will make unforgettable memories with your family here - and for us, this often has nothing to do with the (admittedly spectacular) rides. 

    Some of our dining experiences at Walt Disney World have blown me away too. Before you even sit at a table at Space 220 for some delicious delights, the experience will take you out of this world! 

    The Imagineers at Walt Disney World take great care to make a stroll around these parks like nothing you've experienced before. Try the Pandora - World of Avatar after dark, for example - it's just magical. Some of the rides may be available to you too, Ian. Each one will have specific accessibility specifications you can check before you ride. 

    One more thing, depending on how you are feeling at the time of your trip, please know that you can always drop into Guest Services and speak with a Cast Member about the Disability Access Service (DAS). It's to help Guests who may struggle with waiting in queues by arranging a return time to access rides with your fellow Guests. 

    Ian, I wish you a speedy recovery, and I hope you enjoy a magical holiday with your family this summer. Louise
