    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for writing.  Many families who have children on the spectrum report that Walt Disney World is a very "user-friendly" destination for their special kids.   In general, Guest Assistance Cards (which enable guests with special needs whose disabilities prevent them from waiting on long lines to access attractions via an alternate entrance) are valid for the impacted guest and up to five people in his/her party.  When you approach an attraction, you can let the cast member at the entrance know that you have a larger party, and ask if they can accommodate your group via the alternate entrance.  If it is not possible for all of you to ride at once, you can "take turns" deciding which friends/family members ride along with your child.

    Have a wonderful trip!
