    I will be visting WDW this month. I have broken my ank;e in three places and it is very hard for me to walk and stand for long times. I know some rides can have long queues. Is there any thing you can suggest?

    Hi, Erin!  I'm so sorry you've had such a terrible accident, and hope you aren't in too much pain from your injury! 

    The best thing to do would be to head to guest services as soon as you arrive at the theme parks to obtain a Guest Assistance Card.  This card can be shown to the Cast Member working at the rides and attractions, and they will do whatever they can to help accommodate you.  In many instances, they will allow you to go through a Fast Pass line instead of the regular queue, or they will offer you an area where you can sit and wait.  They do their very best at each attraction to make sure your wait is more comfortable. 

    You can also rent a wheelchair or an electric convenience vehicle while at Walt Disney World.  This will help you to get around the theme parks as comfortably as possible, as there is quite a bit of walking involved in getting from one place to another.  You can find information on wheelchair and ECV rentals HERE .

    I hope you have a wonderful, pain free trip!
