Unhappy Navigating WDW in a cam walking boot?

I've been in a cam walking boot for almost four months due to multiple stress fractures in my right foot. 90% of the time when I wear it I'm at work where I am able to sit, although I do wear it outside of work when possible (it's my driving foot so I have to make due when I'm forced to drive, but I've worn it to weddings and even a funeral). I've been going to a podiatrists for this since July but even with rest and other treatments my foot still isn't healing as fast as the doctor would like.

DH and I are headed to WDW in 10 days and I'm worried about how I'll cope wearing the boot, it's heavy and uncomfortable but I don't want to use a wheelchair or ECV if I can help it (it's not something we've really budgeted for). But if I just wear my tennis shoes with my orthodics I'm afraid I'll do more harm. I have another appointment this week and will be talking with the doctor about what she recommends and of course will take into account what she says. I was just hoping to get some advice for anyone who's had experience wearing one of these at WDW. I really hoped that I'd be healed by now but I guess not
