I was having a problem standing for long periods, too. I purchased a fold-able golf seat/cane. Used it waiting for the World of Color in Disneyland. Saved the day for me (and DW).

What Grumpy said: Get a golf cart and ride around 'The Fort.' They do run out of carts so don't wait too long to reserve one. A few years ago we rented a golf cart from an off-site vendor for less than Disney charges. You can still do that, but the rules have changed; vendors cannot bring them into The Fort. They have the process all set up and you can ask them for the details if you go that route.

My son in law has already done that for the week. I will have a scooter also for me since I will rent one off site for the entire week.

When we were leaving the Magic Kingdom this past Christmas heading to the parking lot, both of my grandchildren (7 year old twins) asked me if they could ride with me. After almost 12 hours they were dragging. Their parents and my ex were dragging also, but I was great and my battery was hanging in there also.

Great day.

If you rent a golf cart can you park drive it to the dock and leave it there while you go to the parks?

Yes you can park the golf cart in a parking lot near the dock or at the bus pick up point. Just remember to take the key with you.

Fort Wilderness in Disney World

Have a great trip. We were just there 1/18-1/24. It was our fourth year in a row going to Disney but our first time at Ft Wilderness. We took our own golf cart and really enjoyed ourselves..

We left at 4am on 1/17 from MD and stayed that night at Coastal GA RV Resort. It was a nice place but we got there, hooked up and didn't wander much.

We're going down March 7th-12th. We're Disney veterans but this is our first time at the campgrounds. I have family that work in the parks so lets just say admission is "cheap". Driving straight through, three of us switching about every 4 hours. That's the plan anyway. I'll be taking I95 all the way down. It will be my first time driving down in a rv, any advice?
