How can I avoid waiting in lines if standing is difficult?

Purchase tickets and gift certificates online. Use your computer or phone to purchase tickets to plays, concerts and movies; dinner reservations; or gift certificates to restaurants. Charge to a credit or debit card and have the certificates or tickets mailed to your home. While online, check out seating and menus.

If you have difficulty walking very far or if you use a walker or wheelchair, call ahead to restaurants, theaters and other venues before you leave home to ask if they are accessible. Ask about parking facilities, where the restrooms are located, the most convenient entrance and so on.
