    We WON this trip to WDW and had no plans to go being my husband had MASSIVE surgery and now has a permantant ileostomy bag. We are happy but we are worried that his bag may leak in line and need to leave quickly. Any suggestions to help with his condition?

    Hi Melinda,


    Congratulations on winning at trip to Walt Disney World!  That is fantastic, and I know you will enjoy this much needed vacation.  I am so sorry to hear about your husband's major surgery.  I can only imagine how much stress this caused both of you.  I would recommend that you obtain a Guest Assistance Card at Guest Relations at any of the theme parks.  Your husband will need to be present when you speak with a Cast Member.  You do not need a note from your doctor, but if there are specific restrictions that he has, this may be helpful.  They may allow him to bypass the regular long lines to avoid waiting for so long.  I would also recommend bringing extra supplies in a backpack or bag so he will feel more comfortable as well.  You can always rent a locker if you don't want to carry it with you.  I know your vacation will be magical!   Congratulations again, Melinda.
