    Love your panel. My husband is on peritoneal dialysis. 4 times a day. Is there a place at each park he can do this dialysis or will we have to plan on returning to our resort each time. Thank you..

    My dad spent three years on peritoneal dialysis before his kidney transplant, and I can tell you that you absolutely can do your exchanges at the theme parks!  There are first aid stations located at each Walt Disney World theme park, and they are all staffed with nurses who will set your husband up in a comfortable location where he can do his exchange.  They won't be able to assist with the exchange itself, but I'm sure between you and your husband, you probably have that part down pat.

    When you go to the first aid station, just let them know you are there to do the exchange, and they will get you set up.  Bring all of your own supplies, as they won't be able to provide those.  You can actually even drop your supplies off early at the first aid station so you don't have to carry them around with you.

    I hope you have an absolutely magical vacation!
