    My son has Behavior problem and often acts out in crowds in long waits is there anything i can do to help with this

    Hello Freda, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question!

    If your son’s behaviour stems from a cognitive disability, such as autism spectrum disorder, then he may qualify for the Disability Access Service, which is designed for Guests who are unable to tolerate extended waits at attractions due to a disability. Please consult the links that I’ve provided in this answer for more information about this service, as well as some tips, tricks and Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities

    If your son doesn’t have a disability, I suggest practicing waiting in lines with him at various familiar locations. This will also allow you to test snacks or other toys and distractions to keep him entertained to see which ones work best. Who knows? Maybe the prospect of fun at Walt Disney World Resort will provide him with an incentive for being on his best behaviour! 

    No matter what, don’t forget to select up to 3 attractions before you leave using Disney’s FastPass+ service! This will allow you to experience at least 3 attractions with minimal wait, which will make the day more pleasant for everyone. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
