    I heard that guests are not allowed to drink while in line for rides. I have a bladder condition that requires me to drink sips of water on a regular basis. Waiting an hour+ in line without water is extremely problematic for me. Is there a work around?

    Hi there, Lori! Welcome back to planDisney! We are so excited that you’ve taken the time to stop back by and ask another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    Upon re-opening last year, Walt Disney World Resort implemented a wide variety of updates that are intended to keep all Guests safe throughout their visits! Some of these things include more robust cleaning procedures, easily accessible hand washing facilities and hand sanitizer dispensers, social distancing efforts, and reduced contact. Additionally, all Guests ages 2 and up are required to have face coverings on at all times outside of dining and swimming. During these exceptions, Guests must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing. 

    With all of this in mind, these enhanced safety procedures are likely why Guests are discouraged from eating and drinking while in the queue waiting for attractions. That being said, there are various accommodations and services that are available for Guests with medical conditions that may be helpful in your specific situation! 

    The Disability Access Service is available to Guests with disabilities that are unable to wait in a conventional queue line. Guests with this accommodation will be given a return time for attractions based on current wait times so they may wait in an area that is appropriate for their specific needs. This may be an accommodation for you to consider based on the condition you described. To discuss whether this is the best service for you, stop by any Guest Relations locations at the front of any park. Here, a helpful Cast Member will discuss your needs and identify the best course of action!

    I hope you are able to plan a practically perfect visit to Walt Disney World Resort this March! Be sure to let us know if we can assist with planning any other part of your stay!
