If you look in the disABILITIES FAQs thread, there is a lot of information that might be helpful. One if the posts on page 2 of that thread has a list of attractions where all guests will stand to wait for a period of time unless they have a mobility device with them. There are VERY few attractions with a place to sit if the guest does not have something with them to sit on.
You can find that thread near the top of this board or follow the link in my signature.
A post on page 1 of that thread lists the 'mobility entrance' for WDW attractions. As you will see, most attractions do not have a special entrances for guests with disabilities. The ones that do tend to be ones that have a longer wait for guests with disabilities because all have to go that way because the regular way is not accessible.
You could be lucky and get there when no one else with a disability is waiting. Or, you could get there and wait 30 minutes more than the people in the 'regular' line who could walk in.
Important things to keep in mind about Guest Assistance Cards:
- they are not meant to shorten the wait
- they almost never shorten the distance walked
- most attractions do not have a place to sit

Thank you guys!!
Today we were discussing that maybe we should just get one of those canes with the little round seat attached. We'll probably get one and test it for a few days to see if it's more helpful than hindrance.
Sue, I did miss that post, I checked it once, there was nothing new, so I never went back again. That is a great point about the water dripping down on his leg even after the ride. I think we'll just take everyone's advice and skip it. He doesn't care one way or the other, I hate getting wet, and the kids will be none the wiser about the ride. The pictures were great! thank you. It reminds me of some ride in CA called Big Foot that I rode as a kid, but I have no clue what amusement park it was at. Knott's maybe?
