    My son is 5 and has Down Syndrome. Can I use the Guest Assistant Pass, to sit close to the exit of shows, he doesn't tollerate loud noises, and certain things scare him. If he started to break down I would like to be able to leave quickly?

    I have an eleven-year-old princess with Down syndrome and I know your plight well!  The good news is that the Guest Assistance Card will allow for special seating for your party.  You'll want to be very specific about your son's needs when you speak with the Cast Member at guest services.  He or she will be able to help you.  Most handicapped seating in shows and attractions allows for a quick exit, so you shouldn't have any trouble.  Enjoy your trip!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
