Reality starting to set in

Our trip is just about 2 weeks away. Not worried about our first week at Universal, since we're staying on-site and lines won't be an issue. But Disney is another issue, one that I've been fearing for some time. Here's the situation along with problems:

-Myself - I have a herniated disc in my back that is pushing against one of my lower nerves. This makes it impossible for me to stand in the same place for more than about 5 minutes. Walking is fine. I also suffer from a panic disorder. Medication is able to keep this under control most of the time.
-My wife - No problems.
-Mother-in-law - 67 years old, heart condition, fibromyalgia, uses ECV.
-13 year old son - Severe anxiety disorder. His reactions range from lashing out to fits of terror. Rare that this happens, but stress amplifies.
-7 year old twin - No problems.
-7 year old twin - Epilepsy. Can only spend about 4-5 hours outside in the heat at one time. Medicine causes extreme angst, tantrums.

In the past, we've been able to WDW with the GAC. With the DAS, I'm afraid this trip will be a disaster. Let's face it - There are no short lines in July. We all know how the new system works, so no need to get into that. Between the lot of us, I'm just starting to realize, this trip is pretty much just going to be a waste of money and very frustrating for all of us. I know I'm in no different a situation than many others. Just curious - Has anyone else just thrown the towel in and accepted that WDW is no longer an option?
