    Hi Scott!

    Thanks for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    Your question cut cut off, but I'm guessing you are asking if there is anything like a button available for autistic children to alert Disney Cast Members.  Unfortunately, there isn't, but you can stop in Guest Services at any theme park and pick up a Guest Assistance Card.  The Guest Assistance Card can help make your trip to Walt Disney World more enjoyable for your daughter.  Just explain to the Cast Member at Guest Services what you think can be done to make the experience better for your daughter.  You do not need to bring a note from a doctor's office or anything like that.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
