DAS Questions

Hi all, I've been reading over everyone's reviews of the new assistance program and am really having some difficulties. My boyfriend and I are booked to go August 19th, his first Disney trip! In the past I was able to get the GAC card as I have significant knee issues (I have been under the care of a specialist for over ten years) and having issues standing for periods of time longer than 20-25 minutes. I do not require a wheelchair since that can make it worse. I do have braces that I bring with me and wear. My boyfriend is an injured vet with titanium rods in his back and leg. He doesn't require a wheelchair either but like me, he has issues standing for long periods. Does anyone know if Disney will consider this a mobility issue or not? We do not have issues getting around. I'm seriously debating cancelling my trip which is just breaking my heart. I agree the old system was abused but the new system acts as if all disabilities are the same.
