    He has great taste. POR is a great resort. I've stayed there twice now and just love it! JUST wanted to make sure you know that it is close to EPCOT so that when the fireworks happen in the evening if you're outside you will hear them. We stood on the curved bridge from the lobby over to the mansions and could just see a little of the highest fireworks.

    He can fish at POR! :) Also there are lot's of nice paths. And an awesome boat ride over to Downtown Disney which is really relaxing too!

    SoG is nowhere near the fireworks. at best you MIGHT get a few of the highest reaching ones.. there will NOT be any noise. Military rates at the resorts do vary. if he needs quiet..SoG is PERFECT.. it is an extremely peaceful resort without all the hustle and bustle and sheer frenetic activity of the other resorts.

    and quite frankly, more empathetic fellow guests who are more likely to recognize his issues and be more willing( and able) to help in case he needs it.

    This sounds exactly like my DH. 100% PTSD, TBI among other back and knee problems. We are planning his first trip now. Like you I know we won't have problems with the crowds it's going to be the lines. Feeling trapped and having people all around him with no way out. I'm hoping that since we are going to one of the slower times it won't affect him as much. But still we are not planning on to many rides. The kids are a little worried about their Papa. Is there a new program like the Old GAC. We tried a couple days at Disneyland and were ok. Got a little anxious in some of the lines and we had to spend the rest of our last day just enjoying the ambiance.
