    I am attending WDW with 8 other family members of which my son has severe ADHD. Can you advise if the Guest Assistance Card is still available and also what I need to bring to prove my son has ADHD? Also if the GAC will allow my family to stay together?

    Hi, Sandra! Yes, Guest Assistance Cards are still available, and you can request one from Guest Relations at any Walt Disney World theme park. When you arrive at Guest Relations, explain that you are traveling with a non-apparent special needs child. Be prepared to describe your child's specific challenges. You won't be asked to provide proof of diagnosis, but it is sometimes helpful to have a doctor's letter to describe the specific issues your son faces.  The Guest Relations Cast Member will add a stamp to the GAC alerting attraction Cast Members as to the type of special assistance and accommodations your child may require. Each Guest Assistance Card will accommodate your son and up to five other members of the travel party. Your travel party will need to decide who will accompany your son before you arrive at an attraction.  Please be advised that in order to use the Guest Assistance Card, your child must be present when entering each attraction. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
