Re: Advise on visiting WDW with an elderly relative
We did Christmas with my Dad when he genuinely thought he was dieing (fortunately he was self diagnosing and needed a gall bladderer removed.)
He did almost everything in Epcot minus Test track and Mission. A good chunk of everything from MK minus the spinney rides and coasters. The shows were perfect in DHS and the slow rides, no coaster or TTT.
AK was the hardest. He did do the safari and shows but that was a longer day for him and he wasn't big on animals or plants.
What we did do was rent a electric cart from home. It was just less than $100.00 a week from a medical supply store. He was able to take it down the jet way and they returned it right back to the jet way when we landed. The buses accommodated it where he could just roll aboard. If you are arriving by car and can't take one with, the Boardwalk rents the electric carts by the week!
The cart and the cooler December January temps made the trip for my Dad very do-able.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.
