My son was taking his family, my three grandchildren to Orlando, Florida to get the Disney World experience. When he told me he was thinking of going, I jumped at the chance. I was there when I was younger when it was much different than it is today, and of course I had to see my grand-kids faces when they saw their favorite characters walking around the park!
I use the Airsep Freestyle 5 for my oxygen therapy, and I need to use it for most of the day. Since I knew I would be doing a lot of walking around while I was there, I went ahead and ordered a couple more external batteries to go along with my Airbelt. I already have an external battery that I use, so that made for three all together. That was enough to cover me for the flight there, which the airline was pretty strict on how much battery life I had to bring with me. Better safe than sorry, right?
It was honestly a breeze carrying around my Freestyle 5, because it's so small and light. Only a few people in the crowds gave me a second look to see what I was carrying, but when they saw what it was, they minded their own business. I'm used to getting looks from little kids, but my oldest grand-kid sometimes likes to tell people what it is so they aren't wondering.
I even went on the famous indoor roller-coaster, Space Mountain! I had to sit it out when they went on Splash Mountain, but it was nice because I got to hang out with my youngest granddaughter while everyone else was waiting for the ride. Of course, oxygen concentrators can't get wet! But Space Mountain was a great ride. I did have to wait until I was done and store my Freestyle 5 in a locker for a short time, since I didn't want to risk damaging it.
We also rode the monorail and saw the bushes that were designed into the shape of classic Disney characters. My middle granddaughter went a little crazy when she met her favorite Disney princess, Ariel. We were also able to sit and eat with Ariel (turned out to be a different Ariel, but my granddaughter didn't mind!). It was just a lot of fun to see all the people dressed up as characters, especially the more little known ones.
One of the coolest things that I enjoyed the most, and what my grandchildren loved the most, was surprisingly the Kilimanjaro Safari ride. I was able to sit and relax and look at all the African animals. I saw my favorite animal the elephant pretty close up and got some awesome pictures of it! I really just wanted to spend all day there. It was relaxing and I got to spend the most quality time with my grand-kids.
In a few years we're talking about going again, and I'll know where to get my extra batteries and any other things I might need by then for the trip.
