    I will have 4 of my children with me and my guest who uses a portable O2 tank, and my 7 yr old son wears AFO braces on his legs, I know that we can get a GAC but how do we do the rides with my friend and her having her O2 tank,

    Hi Kelly!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip! You can absolutely use the Guest Assistance Card and that will greatly help you and everyone in your party when waiting in line and ensuring they are comfortable while they wait. 

    In regards to attractions that will be appropriate for your friend who has an oxygen tank, there isn't a official listing of all of the attractions that will work well, but you can definitely use the ride restriction guidelines to assist you. Some attractions have a red triangle that serves as a warning for those with health conditions. For example, with Mission Space, there is a warning sign and because of the jostling on the ride, this wouldn't be a good choice for one with an oxygen tank or a health condition.

    However, PhilharMagic is a seated, indoor show, so there are no restrictions on this attraction.

    I would suggest that you speak with the Cast Member at each attraction to best understand if the particular attraction will work with an oxygen tank.

    There is a great discussion board on disAbilities on the Disboards dot com. You may find some helpful information on that forum from others who have experienced this.

    I hope you have a magical trip!

    Magically,
    Stacy
