    My son just fractured his foot. So he is in a cast. And will be for several weeks. We are visiting WDW next week. He is on crutches and may have to have a wheel chair at times. How do we go about waiting in the long lines with/without the chair?

    Hi Sara!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    I'm sorry to hear your song fractured his foot, especially right before your vacation to Walt Disney World.

    The good news is that Walt Disney World always tries to accommodate every guest and make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.  

    You can obtain a Guest Assistance Card (GAC) for your son at Guest Relations in in any of the theme parks in Walt Disney World.  Typically, Guest Relations are located near the front of each park.  The Guest Assistance Card will enable your son and up to five other members in your party access to alternate entrances to attractions and on most rides will let you bring your wheelchair up to the ride loading positions without having to stand up in long lines or walk long distances. The Guest Assistance Card is good in all of the four theme parks of Walt Disney World for the length of your stay, so you only have to get it once per vacation.  You will need to present the Guest Assistance Card to the Cast Members at the attractions (typically you go to the Fast Pass entrance of a ride) and they will instruct you where to go.

    I hope this will go some way to making your time at the theme parks much more enjoyable, and if you have any other questions, please come back and ask me.
