    Question on FOP - my husband has COPD. The walk up to the ride - even using fast pass exhausts him - is there any other entrance he can use? Thanks

    Hello there, Linda! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for stopping back by and allowing us to help you plan another vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! I'm so glad I can answer another question for you!

    I totally understand your concern for your husband! As someone that deals with chronic fatigue, I know that this can be a major concern to work around during visits to Walt Disney World Resort! It is certainly true that the queue line for Avatar Flight of Passage is quite long. Fortunately, there are many different accommodations and services that are offered for Guests with disabilities

    I would suggest speaking to a Cast Member at Guest Relations about the Disability Access Service! This service is available to Guests that have difficulty waiting in a conventional queue line do to their disability. Guests with this service will receive a return time for an experience comparable to the current wait time and may return to experience an attraction any time after this return time. This could be a good option to assist your husband in conserving some of his energy!

    However, I would also suggest renting a wheelchair or ECV during your visit! In my experience, the majority of attractions allow Guests to wait in the queue line in a wheelchair and then transfer into the ride vehicle. I know this is incredibly useful for me, particularly in longer lines such as those associated with Avatar Flight of Passage!

    I hope this has given you some ideas for ways to accommodate your husband during your upcoming vacation!
