    Hello, We're planning a vacation in November and staying off property. Does wdw offer meal plans to guests staying off property? Also I'm finishing treatments for breast cancer and worried about my stamina to keep up. Do they offer wheelchairs if neede


    As a breast cancer survivor myself, let me first say congratulations on making it to the end of your treatments--and what a way to celebrate by going to Disney World! Unfortunately, there are no meal plans available at this time for guests staying off property.

    Having visited both Disneyland and Disney World shortly after my chemo and radiation treatments, I can echo your thought that you may be tired and your stamina far less than imagined. However, thankfully, you'll be there in November and not under the heat of summer that can further zap your energy. Although I did not need a wheelchair, they are available at every park if you need them. Just keep in mind that you cannot take them from the theme parks. If you have a hunch you'll need one at your off-property hotel, you may want to look at renting one for the duration of your trip. Disney's list of recommend area rental agencies can help.

    Even though you are staying off property, I'd also recommend leaving the parks after lunch for a good nap and then returning in the evening. It may sound inconvenient, but what is worse is having to stay in the bed on Day 3 of your vacation...I took a long nap every day and was still tired. 

    Here's to your health and a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
