    My question is kind of embarrassing but since this is a panel of moms Im sure some may know where I am coming from :) I suffer from OAB, so sometimes waiting for a long time in lines makes for alot of discomfort. Any tips besides a pad? Thanks!

    Hi Al!  I am sure it is hard to plan any vacation when dealing with a medical condition. But a Walt Disney World vacation can still be magical if you take care and plan ahead for all situations.

    Obviously please check with your physician before embarking on this vacation. Listen to the suggestions that he might be able to provide to help you along the way to have the best time possible!

    When you arrive at each of the parks please head to Guest Services where you can explain you have a medical condition and they will give you a Guest Assistance Card. If it is awkward for you to discuss this personal issue then please write a note explaining your needs or your physician can do the same. This is something you will be able to show the cast members at the various attractions and although this doesn't automatically allow you to move to the head of the line they will work with you about the best way for you to enjoy the ride in the best possible way for you.

    Another thing you will want to do when you arrive is to study the park maps.  Take a highlighter and become familiar with all restroom facilities and know the lay of the lands!  Mark the facilities so it is easy to locate if needed.  Bring along anything you would normally bring when you travel such as pads.  I would also suggest change of clothes as the trip back to resorts takes time and this would be helpful to have something with you if that need happens.

    Disney will do all they can to help you have a most magical vacation!
