    My grandson is 6 and is autistic with a communication and behavioral disorder. He also has 3 sisters and his mom and dad would like to come visit during Christmas, are they any accommodations for him and his family? Micki

    Hello Micki! 
    Welcome to planDisney! We’re so happy you’ve stopped by with a question! I simply love the holiday season! There’s nothing better than putting on my favorite festive sweater and visiting “The Merriest Place on Earth!” 
    Spending the Holidays at the Disneyland Resort allows Guests to experience the Most Magical Time of the year! It’s one of my favorite seasons at the parks and I’ll tell you why. The Characters are in festive outfits and there are tasty holiday treats! Sleeping Beauty’s Castle is covered in snow and Haunted Mansion and “it’s a small world” are decorated for the holidays! Your grandson is going to have a wonderful time with his parents and sisters. 
    The Disneyland Resort is committed to making sure all Guests are able to experience the magic of “The Happiest Place on Earth!” That includes Guests with mobility or cognitive disabilities. Once they’ve arrived inside the theme park, they’ll want to stop by Guest Relations to chat with a Cast Member. The Disneyland Park location is at City Hall while the Disney California Adventure Park location is at the Chamber of Commerce. A Cast Member may ask his parents to explain his needs so they can assess what accommodations can be made. One solution is the Disability Access Service (DAS). This service provides Guests with a return time for attractions so they don’t have to wait in the standard line. If a Cast Member signs your grandson up for DAS, they’ll be able to schedule return times at the various Guest Relations locations throughout the theme park. And, coming this Fall, they’ll have the opportunity to pre-register for DAS as well as the ability to select return times through the Disneyland Mobile App. So, they should keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information in the weeks to come. 
    Please come see us again if you have any more questions.
