    Darcie, since we are leaving in a week it's a bit late for his pediatrician to write a letter stating his disability, can I still get a Guest Assistance Card? ~ Diana

    A note from a Doctor would be helpful, but it's not necessary.  In the past, I've used my daughter's handicap parking placard with the accompanying documentation to show the Cast Member at the Guest Services counter that my daughter has special needs.  If you don't have that either, don't worry.  Just take your son to the Guest Services counter and talk with the Cast Member there about the specific limitations your son has.  He or she will happily offer help in the way of a Guest Assistance Card as well as helpful advice that will almost certainly make your park touring experience a little easier.  Just be sure to take him with you and be prepared to give specific examples of your son's disability.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
