    I heard from another mom that there is a special pass for special needs kids and adults...is there such a thing that my daughter could purchase or attend

    Hiya, Susan, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited for your upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort – it will be here before you know it!

    I’m happy to report that the Disneyland Resort makes a point of ensuring all Guests feel welcome and comfortable, including those with special needs. The Resort offers Disability Access Service (DAS) to Guests who may have difficulty waiting in a traditional attraction queue. With DAS, the Guest will receive a return time for attractions, so they don’t have to spend that time waiting in line. I recommend stopping by Guest Relations upon arrival in either park to chat with a Cast Member about your daughter’s particular needs. In Disneyland Park, you can stop by City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A., or in Disney California Adventure Park, you can head to Chamber of Commerce on Buena Vista Street. If you’d prefer to chat with a Cast Member ahead of your visit, you can also contact Disability Services ahead of time at (407) 560-2547. 

    To avoid waiting in line to purchase tickets upon arrival, I recommend purchasing your tickets online ahead of time. Another way to save time and make this visit more comfortable for your daughter is to download the Disneyland app, and add Disney MaxPass to your tickets. MaxPass allows you to make digital Disney FASTPASS selections from the convenience of your phone. MaxPass can be used in conjunction with DAS, too. The Disneyland app is my favorite handy helper in the parks. My family also enjoys using it to make dining reservations, find our favorite Characters, and mobile order food and drinks ahead of time. 

    Wishing you and your daughter a magical, comfortable, stress-free visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
