EVC...am I NUTS?

Hi. Just wondering (since I am up @2:39am excited about our Disney trip in 18 days) do those on EVCs ever avoid a place due to either people, crowds or anxiety??

I have been to Disney 10 times now and can't bring myself to go into the Main Street Bakery because it looks like its going to be too much of a hassle to maneuver around in.

Pinocchio Haus left me in tears after I discovered the tables are bolted to the floor!!!!!

Is it me?

I have to admit that when I rented one for a sprained ankle, there were places I just parked and hobbled in. There are some places they just don't fit, and the crowds don't help.

I often avoid places....both at WDW and when I shop at home. Some places just have such narrow aisles and so much merchandise sitting in the middle of the aisle that I just don't go there.

My husband usually waits outside when I am in a store. If he chooses to come inside, he will park his EVC and use his cane inside.

DH tries to create as little obstruction for others with his EVC.

Thanks, I am in no way not confident and my husband always encourages me to plow through it (or the people and chairs and tables), it just seems like sometimes its just not worth the aggravation!

Thanks for understanding and support! I always appreciate the kindness on this board!
