Long John Silver from Muppet's Treasure Island is also an amputee (I figured this would count, as Jim Henson Productions is now a part of the Disney family). And of course, if we're counting that film, we also have Blind Pugh (kinda obvious) and Dead Tom (vitally challenged)

The little seahorse in Nemo is H2O intolerant

Wheezy from Toy Story 2 - Asthma or other respiratory problem

I thought that was because he had a tooth missing as a person.

Well, now that I think about it, Cpt Jack Sparrow is an alcoholic; Davy Jones had that nasty growth on his face ; so did "Bootstrap Bill" Turner; Barbossa, well he came back from the dead; And Will Turner had a Heart Transplant. There are probably more that I can't quite put my finger on

I don't think it counts as a 'transplant' if you don't get one back! Definitely a disability, though!

Piglet is prone to bouts of anxiety.
