    I have anxiety medicine and I want to keep it with me in parks. Can I keep it in my park bag and is there anything important I need to do like fill out a form or talk to security before entering the parks?

    Hey there, hi there, Michael. Thank you so much for your question.

    As someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder, believe me when I tell you that I understand how a Walt Disney World vacation might affect someone with anxiety. Rest assured, you can bring your medication into the theme park, and you don't need to go to any extreme lengths. As long as the medication is in a bottle with the label, you should be fine. You can mention it to security if it brings you peace, but there's a really good chance you won't even be asked about it.

    Each Disney theme park will have First Aid Services, Michael, and if things get too overwhelming, know that you can pop in for a bit of quiet, calming time. You may also want to look into obtaining a Disability Access Service card. When used in conjunction with the new Disney Genie+ Service, it can help you with long lines by giving you a return time to some of the attractions. My very good friend Jacqueline is truly an expert when it comes to utilizing the DAS card, Michael, and she does an excellent job of giving an overview of it in many of her answers. If you decide this is something that would make your trip easier, definitely utilize the service.

    I also find, Michael, that being prepared and having a plan can really help. Familiarize yourself with the things you want to do, such as character meet and greets, special dining experiences, and even your resort. Knowing what to expect going in can be helpful.

    Wishing you a magical, memorable trip!
