    Hello, We are considering a Disney World Vacation this summer. We have our 4 grands. 12, 9, 5,3.. 12 year old has Autism he iis nonverbal. He has a really hard time waiting..He is on a gluten and Casien free diet. Can this be accomadated?

    Walt Disney World is they place to go for a magical vacation. You and the grandkids will be able to share some incredible memories. I am happy to tell you that Walt Disney World is there to assist you and your family with making this trip perfect. Disney has made assisting guests with disabilities a priority. They have created the Guest Assistance Card (GAC) to aid visitors to the parks with a variety of special needs that may interfere with their abilities to enjoy attractions. I think this will be perfect for your 12 year old. It can help avoid long queues and other ways to make the wait easier for all of you. In order to get a GAC contact Guest Relations as soon as possible upon arrival. The helpful cast members at Guest Relations are there to assist and will listen to the special needs requested. While you will not need a note from your doctor it will always help to bring any documentation you might have to assist the cast members. The GAC will allow you and up to five others with you to enter certain attractions using an alternate more accessible entrance to fit your needs. I hope this helps you. Feel free to ask me anything else that can enhance your magical vacation.

As a Los Angeles native I basically grew up at Disneyland. It has always been so easy to take my family on the short drive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Watching my daughters make magical memories reminds me why I keep coming back. Learn More About Ari
