    Is there family restrooms in the park? I am planning to take my son (8) and daughter (2) to Disneyland Resort by myself, and my son has autism and not able take care of himself when going to restroom.

    Hello Elizabeth,

    You betcha! The Disneyland Resort has thought of everything when it comes to taking care of Guests needs. There are Companion Restrooms located in each Disneyland Resort park. I have a similar family situation myself, with one daughter and a younger boy who is on the Autism Spectrum, so I tend to use these Companion Restrooms too. The Companion Restrooms are spacious and are in select locations near multiple men’s and women’s restroom facilities. 

    Being a mama of a child on the Autism Spectrum, I do have to remind my son to cover his ears while in the restrooms. The flushing system is loud to his sensitive ears. I recommend a link on the Disney Parks website called Cognitive Disabilities that I find helpful as well.

    The Disability Access Service (DAS) Card is designed to accommodate Guests who aren't able to wait in a conventional queue environment due to disability (including non-apparent disabilities). You visit the main entrance Guest Relations to discuss your children's special needs and concerns with the Cast Member to see if the DAS Card would benefit your children's needs. Their photo will be taken for the issued card. You will not need to provide any paperwork to the Cast Member in order to receive a DAS Card. The Cast Member will go over the terms and conditions with you and have you sign the DAS Card.

    Be sure to grab a map for each theme park when you arrive or ask a Cast Member for one at Guest Services-they can circle where the Companion Restrooms locations are for you.

    If you have any more questions, please write me back on how I can help you plan your pixie-dusted vacation. 

    Best wishes for a magical trip!
