    Hello Melinda!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    I would suggest heading in to Guest Relations once in the parks and talking to cast member to best decide what would help your specific situation. The cast members are trained to give great information and can provide information and ideas on what accommodations you may need. Different attractions have different queues so while one may be fine for you to wait in, another might not work out as well.

    The Disability Access Service will allow you to get a return time for an attraction so you can rest/sit/etc until the time stated. You then go to the FASTPASS entrance and show them your ticket that has the return time programmed on it. You don’t have to use it for all rides, just those that might be difficult with standing for long periods of time.  

    I hope this helps and please let me know if you need anything else as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
