    My son has autism and we utilize a wheelchair tag to minimize elopement. A must is the river of lights show, Is there plentiful handicapped seating available, or would fast pass or dining package be recommended?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Stephanie!

    I’m so happy to hear you’re planning a visit to the place where The Magic Is Endless and where incredible Disney experiences await your arrival!

    Disney’s Rivers of Light nighttime experience does offer accessible areas, but I highly recommend securing a FastPass+ experience for this popular show. Or, perhaps you may wish to enjoy dining at either Tiffins or Tusker House Restaurant prior to the start of the show with the Rivers of Light Dining Package. If the dining package is your choice, please read important information regarding Advance Dining Reservation times to ensure a timely entrance and seating placement prior to the nighttime show.

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park is packed with new experiences and adventures, and you’ll be just in time for a new land, Pandora-The World of Avatar to explore and discover, isn’t that exciting?

    Stephanie, may I offer Disney’s Services for Guests with Special Needs in preparation for your arrival? A handy resource designed to afford all Guests an inclusive and enjoyable Walt Disney World Resort visit!

    We hope you find this information helpful and would be honored to be of any assistance with your Disney planning in the near future.

    Magical Disney Wishes!
