    I am coming to Disney with my step-brother who has down syndrome. What does this mean for us when visiting the parks? He can go on rides, but I'm concerned about wait times. Is there anything other than the DAS pass that will enable us to skip queues?

    Hi Hannah! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! In just a matter of days, you and your family are crossing the pond for The World's Most Magical Celebration holiday at Walt Disney World Resort. You will find so many specialty-themed treats at the parks and resorts. Look through the 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites Guide for offerings. I recommend checking out the Chocolate Mousse from ABC Commissary at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Walt Disney World Resorts works hard to ensure an inclusive vacation experience for all its guests. I find this especially true for Guests with Disabilities. For those guests with cognitive disabilities, they offer the Disability Access Service (DAS) to help minimize wait times in traditional attraction queues, but not skip the lines entirely. Once you have entered your first theme park, stop by Guest Relations with your step-brother to set up his pass. Your friendly Cast Member will assist in setting up a return time for a chosen attraction. After completion, you will be able to make another choice. I recommend verifying your entire travel party is linked to the My Disney Experience Mobile App, which will allow you to experience rides and attractions together. If you need further information please contact disability services at 0800 028 0778 or email

    Your visit is during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Make sure to stop by an outdoor kitchen to enjoy a fresh culinary delight. My favorite was the Spicy Hot Dog with Pineapple Chutney and Plantain Chips from Pineapple Promenade near the Port of Entry. Enjoy live music at the Garden Rocks Concert Series in World Showcase. Check your app during your visit for showtimes and performers.

    Keeping it Magical,
