    We have a trip planned for August. I am in my 70's and have limited mobility in my legs and feet (high steps are an issue). Is there recommended attractions for someone like me? Is there a list of attractions suitable?

    Welcome to planDisney, Mary, and thanks for dropping by with your question! 

    Mary, the Walt Disney World Resort memories that are closest to my heart are those of traveling with my grandmother who had similar mobility concerns, so I appreciate this question. As we toured the park with her we were mindful of which attractions would be easiest to access, so hopefully I can help in your planning. 

    First, I'll direct you to THIS PAGE
    which shows all attractions at all four theme parks. You can filter attractions by height and I find that attractions that are for any height often are easier to access as well. I also love that Walt Disney World has some amazing shows that are not only perfect for escaping the heat but also great to get off your feet! Some of our favorites are: 

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    - For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration
    - Muppet*Vision 3D
    - Vacation Fun - An Original Animated Short with Mickey & Minnie

    At Magic Kingdom Park:
    - Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress
    - Mickey's PhilharMagic
    - The Hall of Presidents
    - Country Bear Jamboree

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    - Festival of the Lion King
    - Finding Nemo: The Big Blue... and Beyond!

    At EPCOT:
    - Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along

    Finally, Mary, if you find that walking around is a bit too cumbersome to enjoy the parks, you can rent a wheelchair or ECV, even if it's just for one day! You'll find this option in all four theme parks.

    Mary, I hope this helps as you're planning ahead for August. If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney!
