    Hi! We will be in Disneyworld the end of this month. We are just finding out my 19 month old has anxiety and sensory issues, and we want to make his trip normal as possible. Would he qualify to use the Guest Assisstance Card? If so, how does this work?

    Hi April,

    Thanks for writing.  My son was diagnosed when he was just about 18 months old.  If your little pirate's special needs make waiting in long lines difficult, simply explain your concerns and his needs to the cast members at Guest Relations at whichever park you visit first.  You can receive a guest assistance card, that will enable your family to access attractions via an alternate, less crowded entrance. 

    Have a wonderful trip.
