Orlando: Disney theme parks

A friend asking me for info on Disney. We took kids to Disney 3 or 4 times. The first time my kid was too young for many rides. My father-in-law joked, put on heels. The last time my in-laws went with us, my father-in-law couldn’t walk too well. I suggested that he sat on the wheel chair (the benefit was that we could cut lines at a few attractions …) but he refused. A very respectable man.
