    Traveling w/my dad who has a heart condition (pacer/defib); normally, he is okay but sometimes has difficulty standing for long periods or walking up steep hills, i.e. at Fantasmic. Can we obtain a GAC when we check in to our resort or just the parks?

    Hi Jennifer, 

    You can get a Guest Assistance Card only at Guest Relations at any of the theme parks.  Your Dad will need to be present and explain his medical situation to a Cast Member.  They will be able to assist him further.  If your Dad has trouble standing or walking for long periods of time, you may want to consider a wheelchair if he will let you.  You can rent them daily at the entrance to each of the parks.  It is so wonderful to visit Walt Disney World with family.  I know your vacation with your Dad will be just magical!
