    Hi there, We will be traveling to WDW in Feb with my 2 kids (6 and 2), and grandparents. My dad does have some balance issues (he has early Parkinsons). I was wondering if you had any tips on rides to avoid or best ways to navigate certain rides

    Hi Katharine!
    Most rides that involve any type of speed, jerking motion, or unsteadiness are clearly marked within each theme park and should probably be avoided...rides like Space Mountain or Rock "n Rollercoaster, etc.. It is best for your dad to follow the advice of his physician before going on anything that may be a concern. Plus, it is best to err on the side of caution if he thinks it may be a ride that will cause any discomfort. The good news is that there are way more rides and attractions that he CAn enjoy than those that he shouldn't.
    I hope this helps and I wish you all a Magical vacation!! :)
