    NEED HELP! We have a special needs 6 year old we are taking to the Magic Kingdom late in May. I've heard about a guest assistance card for those with special needs - does Disney still issue these and where do we go to get this special pass? Thanks

    Hi, Jean!  You can absolutely still get a guest assistance card at any of the Walt Disney World theme parks.  You just have to check in at guest services when you arrive at the park, and they will assist you with the guest assistance card.  Once you have the card, you can show it to cast members at each attraction, and if there is something they can do to accommodate your special needs, they will.  This may mean putting you in a Fast Pass line to avoid a long queue, or it may mean providing you with an alternate entrance to accommodate a wheelchair or other special equipment.  For some people, it may mean offering them a spot to wait away from the bulk of the crowds.

    They do try very hard to make sure that whatever special concerns you have, they are addressed in the best manner possible so that you can enjoy the attractions. 

    I hope your vacation is absolutely magical!
