    My husband and I are planning our first trip to WDW with our twins. My daughter has a disability and I was wondering what you were referring to when you talked about a GAC pass which gave access to alternative entrance to rides. What does this mean? I

    Hi, Michele!  The Guest Assistance Card is presented to the Cast Member at whatever attraction your daughter wishes to do.  Depending on what her disability is, the Cast Member will do what they can to help accommodate her in a manner so that her wait is more comfortable.  In some instance, this means an alternate entrance (to accommodate a wheelchair or electronic convenience vehicle), special seating inside an attraction, an outside waiting area that is more comfortable for her, etc.  It really depends on the disability and what her particular needs are. 

    You can obtain a Guest Assistance Card at Guest Services at any of the theme parks.  I've always found the cast members to be very helpful when we've used a Guest Assistance Card for a disabled member of our party.

    Have a magical vacation!
