    Using a Folding Chair while in line

    Taking my Mom to the resort next week. She has a bit of a back problem, not enough to get a wheelchair. She mainly has issues standing still for long periods.
    I had an idea to get a folding tripod stool like this for her to sit in while lines aren't moving.
    Has anyone else experimented with anything like this?

    Also is there any tram running from the DL hotel while the monorail is out?

    Thanks!

    Cool Re: Using a Folding Chair while in line

    Most lines tend to move steadily. so it doesn't sound too practical.

    Cheers.

    I also have trouble standing long, or short. and I know I am in for a real problem if the lines are real big. think about a chair for her

    I'm thinking of lines such as Indy and Space where they'll let a group of people into the inside line every once in a while. You'll move a little bit and then wait a few minutes.

    The folding chair sounds like a good idea. But what about when you have to go on the ride. It there somewhere you can put it or is it small enough
    that they let you take on with you

    The one I linked above folds to about 24". I was thinking I could strap it to my backpack.

    Well walking around is no problem for her. It's only a problem to stand around for about 10 mins or longer. We were trying to avoid a wheelchair if it wasn't absolutely neccessary.

    Re: Using a Folding Chair while in line

    I usually lean on things or sit on the rails. I don't think there would be enough room for people to put chairs like that down in the line anyway .

    We actually tried bringing something like that with us once, and they stopped us at the security area and we had to return it to the hotel.

    No, there is no tram from the hotel to the front gate while the monorail is out.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    Re: Using a Folding Chair while in line

    I think this will actually be a not-so-bad idea. There was actually a guy in fronnt of us carrying this exact same chair and it worked great! There are some lines that just dont move for a little while but once you do move, you really get gonig e.g. Indiana Jones, Pirates, the whole mountain range especially. I think its a good idea.

    You might consider one of those walkers with a built in seat.I doubt they would tell your mom take it back,and crawl around DL.You should still be able to use the wheel chair access to rides.I doubt anyone with back problems would get on screamin' or Splash Mtn.

    Re: Using a Folding Chair while in line

    My mom has the same problem! She bought one of those 3 legged chairs that is also a cane. It works wonderfully and at the front gate when they say you can't bring in a chair, she says- "It is a cane to help me walk!" They can't push that. She uses it in every line and even though you must get up and walk a few feet, it is better for her than just standing and letting the blood build up in her legs.

    I don't know the name of the model she has, but it is similar to this I found on the net-
    SportSeat Portable Folding Cane Walking Stick with Seat. Just type into google to see what you can find. Also try some of the walking stores and travel stores to see what they have.
