Hi My name is Rachel. And I am disabled (man I love that word, my mom calls it handicapped and it drives me nuts!!)

Can you guys tell me about the disability lines for the rides? How does this work?
I had a friend tell me they were available but then she dropped off the face of the earth (actually she moved off our board) and so I didnt find out anymore. ;(

I have Thrombosidapenia with Absent Radius Syndrome. Meaning. Im missing the radius bones in my arms, the ulna's are shortened by a lot and I have hip and knee problems :( but I get around. If ya knew me, you wouldnt know I had problems, Ya kinda forget! ;)

Hi, Rachel and welcome.
Most of the lines for people with disabilities are mainstream now. That means everyone waits in the same line with everyone else and wheelchairs/ecvs will stay right in the line. You don't need any special card or anything to bring them into the line.
There are Guest Assistance Cards for people with non-visible disabilities that affect their ability to wait in the regular line. You can do a search for GAC or GAP or the whole words and you will get a lot of information.
You didn't say whether you use a wheelchair or ecv for distances. If you don't normally use one, you may want to consider it for WDW. You can easily walk 3-4 miles a day (some people say more).
