    Hi, I am visiting WDW with my adult autistic daughter. I am planning on purchasing ILL's for her to ride the attractions associated with these. I cannot ride them. Do I also have to purchase an ILL just to escort her through the queue? Thank you

    Hello there, Natalie!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here before you know it, and I hope it is filled with all treats and no tricks. Whether or not you are participating in Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticketed event, the Halloween decor around the theme parks and Resort hotels will be sure to delight and fright. 

    I spoke with a friendly Cast Member about your question, and when it comes to purchasing the individual Lightning Lane entry, you’ll need to let the Cast Member at the front of each attraction entrance know what you plan on doing. I’m sure you can be accommodated with only one Lightning Lane entry, but you’ll need to inform the Cast Members for each attraction so they understand what assistance is required. 

    Similar to Rider Switch, you’ll be asked to wait for your daughter in a designated area. Rider Switch is available for most, but not all, attractions, so you’ll want to ask a Cast Member at the front of the attraction if there is a designated place where you can wait for your daughter while she rides the attraction.  

    Natalie, are you familiar with the Disability Access Service program? With registration, a Guest can schedule specific times to return to redeem an attraction instead of waiting in a standard queue. You can register for the Disability Access Service in person or through Live Video Chat. If this route is taken, please inquire about this accommodation with this community also! The Walt Disney World Resort offers a host of services to help Guests with cognitive disabilities. If you’d like any additional information, I highly recommend calling a friendly Cast Member if you have any other questions about this topic. 

    May the magic be with you!
