30yr old Male - Cancer - Disability Questions

Good afternoon. My name is Jon and I have just recently finished 7 months of chemotherapy to treat Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

My girlfriend and I are headed to Animal Kingdom Lodge for a 6 day trip in late August as sort of a recovery celebration since I've been couped up in my home/hospital for the better part of a year. As I am feeling much better each day, my stamina is still greatly lacking, and despite having fast passes, I know there will be times when we stand in line for up to an hour and maybe more.

This will really take it out of me and limit my total Disney experience. Would I qualify for any disability service (or similar) and what type of documentation must I provide?

Oh, and I'm not talking about a wheelchair/mode of transport (I still walk just fine), simply something that would shorten my wait, as the nerve damage in my feet from treatment doesn't help the situation at all.

Thanks in advance for any guidance you DIS'ers can provide
