    My son has Autism and can't tolerate loud sounds. Can you give any suggestions on what rides "not" to get try? He wears headphones to block out noise at times, will they permitted on rides. I know that some you just can't, but in general?

    Hi, Elizabeth!  My first piece of advice to you is to stop by Guest Services and grab a Guest Assistance Card for your son.  The card enables cast members to better understand what your son may need to help him have a magical experience, and if that includes making sure he has his headphones on, as long as safety on the attraction is not an issue, he would be permitted to wear them.  They might also be able to offer him a quieter spot to wait for an attraction, or make other accommodations to give him a better experience.

    I would probably say that most of the 3D movies tend to be louder, and you may want to avoid the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular.  Other louder attractions include Dinosaur and Rock 'n' Rollercoaster. 

    I hope your vacation is absolutely wonderful!
