    We are planning trip to disney on 02/20/11, I have a 5 years old girl and a 7 y/o boy, he s autistic. I was wondering if there is any special consideration for him regarding waiting in line or such.

    Hi Lamia,

    Walt Disney World does an amazing job of accommodating guests with different needs; the cast members really try to make sure everyone has a magical experience.

    Before you go on your trip, it will help if you get a note from your child's doctor describing his diagnosis. When you arrive at the park bring the note and your child to Guest Relations.  They will issue a pass that is appropriate for the accommodations that you need.  Although the pass you are given may shorten your wait time, or allow you to wait in a less crowded area, it's still a good idea to bring some activities or snacks to keep your child occupied and distracted during any time spent waiting in lines.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
