    I'm looking for amenities for adults with Autism. Do the parks have any special things designed for them?

    Hiya Stephanie!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! One of my favourite things about the Disney parks is that they truly are for everyone, and Disney has many services and operations to ensure that. As Walt Disney himself once said: "to all who come to this happy place, welcome." Well, he said that about Disneyland, but I think the message still rings true!

    My main recommendation would be to sign up for the Disability Access Service. This service, also known as "DAS" for short, allows you to ask for a return time to the attraction of your choice so that you do not have to wait in line. This is especially helpful for people who cannot remain in conventional lines for not mobility-related reasons. While you will not have to be physically in line, you will still have to wait the originally posted time minus ten minutes. To register for this service, you can stop by a Guest Relations counter at any of the theme parks or register online using the live video chat. You can make two types of selections: advance selections and day-of return times. The advance selections can be made upon registration and cannot be made within two days of your visit. Then, you can also make day-of selections on the My Disney Experience mobile app or by asking a Cast Member at the main entrance of each attraction. You can only have one day-of return time at a time, but you can use day-of return times and advance selections simultaneously. For any questions about the Disability Access Service, I suggest reaching out to a Cast Member or stopping by any of the Guest Relations booths.

    While DAS will help with longer wait times, you can also use other things to make sure your trip is as magical as possible! If you need some quiet time to relax and get away from the Florida heat, I suggest stopping by the First Aid stations. Indeed, each theme park has a First Aid station with needed supplies and quiet, private areas. In addition to these quiet areas, certain attractions and restaurants are quieter than others. For example, quick-service restaurants tend to be louder, and certain full-service restaurants may be more stimulating. For calmer restaurants, I recommend eating at Le Cellier Steakhouse at EPCOT, Tiffins Restaurant or the Nomad Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom, San Angel Inn Restaurante at EPCOT, and the Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park. Most of these restaurants are even dark and cool inside, which may help. Lastly, Disney has a lot of quieter, calming rides that are great if you need a break from all the fun. My favourites include Spaceship Earth at EPCOT, the Carousel of Progress at Magic Kingdom Park, and Na'vi River Journey at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

    I hope this was helpful, Stephanie, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach out. You and me, we're in a club now, and you're as welcome as can be!

    Have a magical day,
