    Hi Jenny,

    Sorry to hear that your husband is going through this, but glad to hear that you are both still looking forward to making magical memories by going to WDW.  I think it sounds as if you have made very good plans so far and really thought ahead, that is really important when planning a trip to WDW....well done!  You will not have to worry about the WDW Transportation system as most will accommodate wheelchairs and ECV's.  What I mean by most, is that the busses will almost all have a wheelchair ramp (but not all), so you may have to wait for an extra bus to come along and accommodate you once in a while during your vacation and for the boats, some will depend on the water level, but most of them will be able to accommodate you as well.  I would also call and have them make a note on your reservation for the Magical Express Service that you will have someone in your party that uses an ECV as they can certainly accommodate wheelchairs and ECV's but space is limited and it will speed up the process if they have this information on file when you arrive for your Magical Express Coach transportation to your WDW Resort (If you haven't done so already when you made your reservations for the Magical Express). You may want to visit the "Guests With Mobility Disabilities" page on the WDW website for more information.  Have a wonderful time.

    Best wishes,
