    This is the first time to Disney and I was wondering how much walking is there for someone who has a bad knee? I do walk daily, but the knee can be a problem with excessive walking. Can you give me an idea.

    Hi, Melinda!  Okay, no sugar coating.  There is a lot of walking at any of the Walt Disney World theme parks!  Having traveled with both my mom and my mother-in-law, both with knee replacements, I would strongly suggest the use of a wheelchair or an ECV.  You can rent either of them at Walt Disney World or bring your own from home, but it is going to be much easier for you to navigate the theme parks with some assistance. 

    You will find all of the information you need on renting a wheelchair or ECV from Walt Disney World HERE .
