    I would like to enjoy the rides with my grandkids but have problems with a bad knee. WIll I be able to get in rides and enjoy them?

    Welcome back to planDisney Marge!

    Oh boy! It sounds like you are planning an amazing family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! One of my absolute favorite Disney World trips was when we took my grandmother with us. My boys loved showing their great-grandmother all of their favorite restaurants and attractions. Don't forget to look in to capturing some terrific family photos with a Capture your Moment photo session. This photo session is available at all four theme parks as a part of the Enchanting Extras Collection. It is extremely popular though, so advance reservations are recommended and can be made up to 60 days before you vacation

    I understand your concerns about your knee. I also deal with knee problems and find that all the walking and Florida humidity can aggravate that condition. Good news is your ability to enjoy the attractions should not be impacted by your knee concerns. While a number of attractions have a moving walkway that you use to step in to your car, the walkway moves very slowly. Additionally, the Cast Members do have the ability to temporarily stop the walkway if needed. Therefore, if you are considered about your mobility and ability to get onto the walkway and into the attraction, please let the Cast Member know. Should your knee cause enough issues that a wheelchair is needed, that is available as well. Wheelchair rentals are available at all four theme parks, the water parks and Disney Springs and Cast Members will be able to direct you to the wheelchair entrance for the attraction you would like to enjoy. You may also want to read through Services for Guests with Disabilities before your arrival should any of this information be applicable to your needs. 

    I hope this information helps you and your grandkids have an amazing time! If I can help with any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me

    Hope to see ya real soon,
