Mother and son on Carousel

    Sarah from Berkshire Asked

    I'm hoping to visit, with my family, in August. My daughter and I have autism and sensory processing. My daughter is in receipt of DLA, I have a letter confirming her needs. Am I able to get a carer ticket? How much is it please?

    As a fellow Sarah, I would like to say welcome to planDisney! 

    Sarah, I know that many theme parks in the UK and Europe, including Disneyland Paris, offer free or reduced entry for a person who is responsible for a disabled person; however, at this time Walt Disney World Resort does not offer this service. 

    While reduced entry tickets are not available, I can tell you that Walt Disney World Resort has made a concerted effort to make a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth enjoyable for everyone, including very special people like your daughter. In addition to a variety of services to make your trip perfect, Walt Disney World Resort has even put together a special planning tool just for people with Autism. Please note that this document has not been updated since the reopening, so some of the information may have changed. 

    Sarah, what you will want to do is to go to Guest Services when you first enter the theme park and request a Disability Access Service (DAS) card. Instead of waiting in the standby line, this card will allow your party to receive a return time and be fast-tracked through a separate line upon your return. 

    If you or your daughter become overstimulated and need a break from the crowds, there are plenty of break areas located throughout the theme park. Simply ask a Cast Member for a recommendation. My favorites include the boat launch near the exit Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in the Magic Kingdom and the area near The Seas with Nemo & Friends in EPCOT. 

    I hope that this helped, Sarah. Please come back here to planDisney if we can help answer any other questions about your upcoming holiday!

    Wishing you the most magical vacation. 

    Sarah B.
