    We are planning to visit WDW Nov 11th and 12th with my 2 yo with autism. We would like to go to both the MK and AK, but I'm not sure which day will be best for each. I know it is a holiday weekend, are the crows going to be horrendous?

    Hi Allison,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! While you are correct that the crowds may be a little heavier due to Veterans Day, I think that you and your family will still have a great time! Just be sure to arrive early and take advantage of the FastPass+ service!

    Since park hours haven't been released yet for November, it's hard to say which day would be better to visit which park. If there are Extra Magic Hours offered, they will likely increase the crowd size some, but if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, they're also a wonderful benefit! 

    I did want to let you know since you'll be traveling with your little one who has some special needs, that there are lots of great resources available to you! My son is also on the autism spectrum and one thing that has been a big benefit to us is the Disability Access Service. If your Mouseketeer struggles with overstimulation and crowds and you're concerned about the lines, be sure to stop by Guest Relations when you first arrive to discuss some of your concerns. They'll be happy to do all they can to help your visit go as smoothly as possible! Do know that if you qualify for the Disability Access Service, you'll be able to use both that and FastPass+ throughout your stay.

    I hope that helps, Allison! If you have any other questions as you're planning for your trip, feel free to come visit us again. We're always happy to help! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation this November!
