    I saw a link about kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Can you please direct me to more info about that? My 6yo has sensory processing disorder, OCD, & is waiting to be tested for ASD.

    Hello Kristie, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel from a mom with a child with Autism.

    I'm so happy to hear you're planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort and I have to share how on each trip my son makes the most developmental and social gains, giving us great hope and joy.

    May I offer the best planning tools in preparation for your visit:

    - book an inclusive Magic Your Way Vacation Package with resort-wide amenities and conveniences
    - customize through My Disney Experience to book Disney dining, select FastPass+ experiences, and       personalize MagicBands
    - download the Guide for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities with the particular focus on what to expect during your visit which is an effective acclimatization tool
    - please have a look at Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities with the particular focus on Disney's Disability Access Service, what to bring and strategies for theme park visits
    - visit the Baby Care Centers and, or First Aid which have quieter areas of comfort for brief rests away from crowds, noise, and heat

    I try to stay at a Disney Resort hotel closest to the theme park we visit most and head back in the afternoon to relax and swim.
    Bring noise canceling headphones, tablets, and reinforcers for added comfort.

    I hope this is helpful and would be pleased to offer any further advice.
