    Hi I’m in remission from cancer and tire really easy. I know from being there before that it’s ALOT of walking. Do you have any suggestions for me?

    Hi there, Sherra! 

    Kicking cancer's backside can take a lot out of a person, and we want you to be able to enjoy visiting Walt Disney World. The first thing I want to recommend to you is the FastPass+ system. If you are a Walt Disney World resort guest, and have purchased theme park tickets, you can pre-book times to visit many of the theme park attractions. You can book up to three FastPass+ times per day, but then when you are at the park, if you use the initial three, you can book another pass. This really helps make the wait time for attractions much shorter, so you shouldn't have to stand and wait as long.

    Another option to consider is the Disability Access Service Card. This card works very similarly to the FastPass+ system, except you don't book it in advance. When you arrive at the first theme park you visit on your vacation, go to guest services, and they can hook you up. Then, you can go to an attraction with a line and ask for a return time so you don't have to stand and wait in the line. They usually give you a return time about the same length of time as the wait, so you have time to shop, grab a quick bite to eat, or sit and relax.

    You'll also find wheelchair rentals and electronic convenience vehicle rentals at each theme park. This can really make it easier for you to get around the theme park, so you'll have energy to spare for a quick dip in the pool at the end of the day!

    Have a wonderful vacation, and keep fighting hard, Sherra!
