    I adopted 3 babies from foster care in Florida. They are considered special needs. Is there any pass I can obtain to make wait time less? They're two. Thx

    Hi Annie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your story warms my heart! Of course, Mickey and Minnie Mouse would be tickled to have your very special toddlers visit them at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I would first suggest that you review the Services For Guests With Disabilities. One of the services offered is a Disability Access Pass. Once you arrive at the parks, you will need to take your children to Guest Services to register them for the pass. 

    Once registered, here is how the pass works. Find a cast member at the entrance to the line for a ride or attraction. Explain that you have the Disability Access Pass and ask for a return time for the ride. They will give you a return time window similar to a Fast Pass. You can use the Disability Access Pass in addition Fast Pass+. 

    My family has used this service in the past and although we could not use it for every ride or attraction, we were able to use it for the vast majority of rides. The girls and I were allowed to ride with my husband during each of his return times. When you register at Guest Services, a cast member will verify with you how many additional guests can ride with each child that has a Disability Access Pass.

    It also might help to review the Planning For Pre-School Kids And Little Ones Guide. The guide includes a list of 80 Attractions or More for Your Preschooler. Be sure to check the height requirements!

    Sending pixie dust your way hoping you have a magical time.
