    My daughter has Autism and refuses to were a mask , is there anything that I need to do for her to get into Disneyland?

    Hi there Rosa, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question, and we appreciate your patience as we assist all who are anxious to return to a land of magic.

    As you prepare for your upcoming visit, it's a great idea to get your Mouseketeer ready for the new health and safety protocols she'll encounter in the theme parks. Face coverings are an essential accessory to every Guest's outfit these days, and they are required to be worn by everyone at all times unless actively eating or drinking in a stationary, physically distant location. At this time, there are no exceptions to this rule. 

    Since you have some time before your visit, I recommend practicing at home as often as possible, offering her lots of praise when she's wearing her face mask correctly. Try taking her on some short, masked outings to the park or grocery store. I also recommend trying several styles of masks to see what works for her. My kiddos like the fit and feel of the face coverings sold at shopDisney

    I know every child is different, Rosa, and if even after weeks of practice your daughter struggles to wear a face mask, you might need to consider postponing your visit until they are no longer required in the Disneyland Resort. I encourage you to monitor the Disney Parks Blog and Experience Updates page as the public health situation evolves. I hope everything goes well for you, and your family enjoys a joyful return to the Happiest Place on Earth. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and hopefully we'll see ya real soon!
