I am going to look into the collapsible scooters for the duration of the trip. I would hate for this trip to be a bust because mom collapses from exhaustion trying to get to the parks on day one. This is a far cry from my half marathon running days at Disney - although my running is what led to the surgery...

Glad that no cast members gave you the stink eye - that was part of my concern with the wheelchair or scooter use because outwardly it doesn't look like there is anything wrong with me. This experience has given me new appreciation for what those living with limitations or disabilities face just to complete minor tasks.
I will say in general cast members have been nothing but kind when we've traveled with one. Seriously just wonderful about it. Don't let that worry you at all. Just be prepared to take it slow in an ECV and also that people do not look for you and might walk into you. That's our issue we've seen.

I've seen many 'young and healthy' types in them and I always assume there is an injury or disability that is holding them back. If you need one, use it. It will help you. My aunt who is obviously disabled fought on using one for so long. Once she finally did, she never went back. Don't regret using one if you have to.
