    Surprising DD with trip to WDW for 14bday 9/23-30/12 I have some small medical problems that do not justify wheelchair nor do I have funds for it but concerned about keeping up and seeing all I came to see...any advice???


    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Since you are worried about getting around and are already considering it, I recommend going ahead and getting a wheelchair.  Walt Disney World is huge and the parks are huge, especially Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Do not worry about having to justify for a wheelchair; you can get one with no questions asked!  Also, you should get a Guest Assistance Card to help you with the lines.  Just stop in Guest Services at any theme parks and tell the Disney Cast Member what can help you with your small medical problems.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
