    My daughter is autistic and 4, what are the rules for masking at this time, she has an exemption letter from her doctor as it’s a sensory issue and she will have a meltdown. Also do you have front of line passes for special needs guests?

    Hello, Brittney.

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for bringing us such important questions concerning your family's upcoming holiday to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.

    I can just imagine how super excited your whole family must be about your jolly Disney holiday as it appears right around the river bend in just a few days time!  With so much to do in Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, I feel sure that you and your darling little Princess will be able to create some everlasting memories together at the most magical place on earth.

    Brittney, I have some great news to share concerning the wearing of face-coverings for all fully vaccinated Guests aged 2 years old and over at Walt Disney World Resort!  At this time, it is considered optional for fully vaccinated Guests aged 2 years old and older to wear a face-covering in both outdoor and indoor locations.

    However, it is expected that Guests who are not fully vaccinated should still continue wearing their face-coverings in all indoor locations, including indoor Attractions and theatre-like spaces.

    Additionally, face coverings are still required to be worn by all Guests aged 2 years old and over on enclosed Disney transportation, including the Disney bus, monorail, and the Disney Skyliner services.

    I'm happy to share with you that in my own personal experience, you will discover that Walt Disney World Resort provides some super thoughtful Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities.  These services include the Disability Access Service (DAS) which is designed to assist Guests who are unable to tolerate waiting within a traditional queue environment. 

    Upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort, my best advice would be for you to stop by a Guest Relations location within a Disney Theme Park to discuss with Cast Members the particular needs of your daughter.  Cast Members will be able to register your daughter for the Disability Access Service (DAS) if appropriate for her needs, and this registration will be set to last for a whole 60-days. 

    All that remains is for me to wish you an extra pixie-dusted upcoming March holiday to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
