    I'm concerned about the kids club bands. My son (8) has ADHD and has major sensory problems. He does not like anything around his wrists or ankles. I know the bands are made to not be removed, but will they make an exception for special needs?

    Hi Amanda!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I understand how important it is to plan ahead when traveling with a little buccaneer who has special needs. One of the many reasons why we love sailing with Disney Cruise Line so much is because they always do their absolute best to accommodate my son's special needs. For medical reasons, we have to bring a monitor along to keep an eye on him while he sleeps. Our Stateroom Hostess went above and beyond helping us set it up in the perfect location inside our stateroom and also made sure not to disturb it while tidying up the room each day. She went out of her way to make my entire family as comfortable as possible and truly cared!

    I recommend reaching out to Disney Cruise Line's Special Services Team and asking them this very important question regarding your son's sensory challenges and whether or not an accommodation can be made to/with the Youth Club bands. You can either give them a call at (407) 566-3602 or send them an email at specialservices@disneycruise.com. They will be so happy to assist you in making your son's experience in the Youth Clubs a fun one!

    Whenever I've reached out to Special Services before a cruise with concerns, they have listened to everything I've had to say with compassion, warmth and an eagerness to help! I have no doubts your experience will be the same.

    Wishing you a magical voyage!
