    I'm travailing to Disney Florida in May, my daughter has ADHD and Autism, I also suffer with adhd. I've heard about magic bands that allows times to go back to rides but am a bit confused as to how to get these, can anybody help in this? thank you

    Hi Kaylea,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so happy you are planning!

    There are a few ways to reduce your wait time in lines and improve your park experience with your daughter. First, be sure to create a My Disney Experience Account. If you are managing plans for everyone in the family, add all of them to your My Family & Friends List. Once you purchase park tickets, link those tickets to your account. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands. Be sure to link those MagicBands to your account.

    Now, here is the important time-saving information - if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can make Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance of your trip. With just theme park tickets, you can make those Fast Pass+ selections 30 days in advance. You can make up to three initial Fast Pass+ selections per day for a single park. Once you have used those three Fast Pass+ selections or the time window has expired, you can make a fourth Fast Pass+ selection.

    Kaylea, you may also register for the Disability Access Service (DAS). On the first day that you arrive to a park, just head over to Guest Relations and explain that you would like to register for the Disability Access Service. In the past, my husband has registered for this service. They attach the service to his MagicBand, but we can ride the attractions with him. With the service, we approach a cast member at the entrance to a ride, explain that he has the Disability Access Service, then, if it is available, the cast member will give us a return time to ride that attraction. The great news is that you can use this in addition to your regular Fast Pass+ selections!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
