    We are visiting with 4 generations this summer & we are worried about my grandpa. He has arthritis in his ankles and it hurts him to walk/stand too long. He isn't technically handicap, so is it going to look silly if he uses a wheelchair?

    Hi Valerie - That's so wonderful that you can travel with four generations of your family.  Walt Disney World involves a lot of walking, and even those with no mobility challenges are typically exhausted by the end of the day.

    If it will make your grandfather more comfortable to use a wheelchair, there's no problem with it.  It will probably make the days in the parks more bearable for him.

    I hope that helps!  Enjoy your vacation!
