    I am a 39 year old mom recently had a radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer. Feeling pretty good and they got all the cancer YEAH. By the end of the day I am still feeling rough, is it possible to borrow a wheel chair inside the park if I need it?

    First, congratulations on a successful surgery!  You are totally entitled to feel rough, girl! But your body is strong and has been through a lot, now it's time to reward yourself with that trip to Disney. Once you are in Disney you won't have to even think about Doctor's appointments, hospitals or even cancer the whole time..it's a great feeling.♡

    After my husband's cancer surgery & chemo/radiation treatment he was determined to go to Disney. I was reluctant because he was so weak ( Uh...yeah, I had a lot to learn back then. Now, I would never try to keep his spirit down! ) We went to Disney & had the BEST time ever because the entire family took it really slow so we noticed every single detail. So now, five years later, we still take Disney slow & soak it in.

    At each of Disney's Parks you can rent wheelchairs or ECVs (Electric Convenience Vehicles) just inside the entrance.
    Wheelchair fees are $12 per day
    ECV fees are $50 per day with a $20 refundable security deposit
    These fees are subject to change, so please double check when you get to the Parks!

    That first year right after my husband's surgery we really planned on him needing a wheelchair, but instead we took frequent rest breaks at benches in the parks & never rented that chair. But it's great to know that Disney has them there for you. 

    May you continue to heal with strength, live with beauty and experience the Magic of Disney during your trip!
