We can't go anymore :(

I asked earlier about Disney's travel insurance and how easy they were to work with. Well I went to the doctor yesterday and found out I am in need of an ACL reconstruction. The surgery is scheduled for September 2 and we were supposed to fly out on September 16. Because of the extensive previous surgeries on my knee the doctor said there is no way I can go. Which is ok since with a $4,000 deductible Disney wouldn't be possible anyways.

Thanks for all the great advice and help with planning. We are going next year but now need to decide on a time frame. Also we won't be able to stay in our Preferred resort of POFQ since our daughter will be 3 later this fall, which makes 5 in our party.

I will keep nosing around and keep getting good ideas for next year. Now to start looking for which hotel we want (maybe now we can splurge next year for a deluxe hotel:)

Thanks again for all the great help. And we had so many good deals, what a waste....

Awww such a shame that you can't go. But at least you get to plan a trip for next year, where you'll be able to give your new knee a good workout :)

You may not be able to stay at POFQ with 5, but you can def stay at POR with 5 - they have a trundle bed for under 9's.

You'll have all the fun of searching out the deals again next year :)

So sorry to hear this bad news!! I know how disappointed you are both about the upcoming surgery and also cancellation of your trip.

Wishing you all the best with the surgery and recovery, as I know it's long and painful, but hopefully you'll be good as new when you are done!!

Sorry to hear that Casey, I made the surgeon delay my knee opp two years ago, as I told them I wanted to go on holiday first, and they said I couldn't fly for about 8 weeks after.

Cant they change your opp date, or would you be more comfortable going next year anyway?

Thanks for all the kind replies.

Moomin21 - No I can't change the date. I also have torn cartilage in my knee which is causing it to lock and I don't want my knee to lock completly while I am down there and need emergency surgery. Plus I am 27 years old and am on the verge of a knee replacement so I need to get it taken care of now.

Thanks again! There should be some times opening up for dnners as I need to cancel our reservations. We have Boma, Sci-Fi, Cape May Cafe, Chef Mickey's (breakfast), Coral Reef, and Whispering Canyon Cafe.
