    Celebrating my daughter's 18th Birthday this weekend (she has Autism & chemical stuff going on) she is SUPER EXCITED about this weekend! She was looking forward to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween, it's is not taking place - suggestions?

    Boo to you, Missee!  Thanks for bringing this spook-tacular question to planDisney!

    I am so excited to hEAR that you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this weekend!  What could be more special than celebrating your princess's 18th birthday at The Most Magical Place on Earth?  Be sure to stop by the front desk of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or any Guest Relations location to pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button for your daughter to wear.  She will love all of the birthday wishes she receives from other Guests and Cast Members.

    Before you leave for your trip, be sure to take a look at this "Know Before You Go" page.  During the phased reopening process, things at Walt Disney World Resort may look a bit different from what we're used to, but the magic will still be there.   As you mentioned, one difference in this fall season is that Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will not be taking place.  However, there are still plenty of ghoulishly good times to be had this fall at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Be sure to sample all of the delicious fall treats found throughout the park.  I hear that the Pumpkin Spiced Waffle Sundae is so good it's scary!  While you're enjoying some spooky snacks, you can catch the special Halloween cavalcades that will be popping up along the parade route throughout the day.  You can wave to Mickey and his friends as they pass by in their boo-tiful Halloween costumes.  Speaking of costumes, all Guests are welcome to wear their Halloween finest for their Magic Kingdom Park visit.  Just be sure that your costume follows these guidelines, and don't forget your face coverings!

    Missee, like you, I am also the parent of a child who has autism.  I am happy to tell you that Walt Disney World Resort always goes above and beyond to make the magic accessible to everyone.  Before your visit, be sure to take a look at this helpful Guide for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities.  When you arrive at one of the theme parks, I would also recommend stopping by Guest Relations to discuss accommodations such as Disability Access Service that might be helpful for your daughter.

    Wishing you a frightfully fun vacation!
