Disney with an ileostomy

I am looking to get some feedback from those who have been to Disney with an ileostomy. My DH may be having surgery soon and we have a trip planned for June, that he hopes we will still be able to go on. Based on talking to Dr.'s and other's who know about it, there seems to be no reason we won't be able to go. We are only GUESSING, but we think he would have surgery in February or March.

June will be HOT, and we know that it will be important to keep him hydrated, would it be best to rent an ECV for the trip, to keep him from over doing it (being only a few months from surgery and to lesson the chances of dehydration)

Will the First aid be able to hold extra supplies, or should I bring a backpack (in case of emergency)

How many breaks should be plan for? We usually do rope drop, then break in the afternoon, then back to the parks for the evening. We know this may be hard on him, and he can go back to the resort to rest more if needed.

Should we even be planning this trip?

What other questions do I need to ask?

Based on everything I have read I don't think he will need a GAC. He doesn't ride many rides, and we know to check the bag often.

Thank you in advance for your advise/help.
