    Our son is six and has autism. He can and loves to swim and I think he would really benefit from a swimming with dolphins experience. Are there any programs/places where smaller childre with special needs can do this? Thanks!

    Walt Disney World doesn't offer a dolphin experience for guests that age, Kimberley.  While they do have a Dolphins in Depth tour at Epcot, it is strictly for guests ages thirteen and over.  I know that there are a number of other Orlando area attractions that feature dolphins and allow for dolphin swims and encounters.  I can't give you specific information as to any of these other programs, but if you think your son would benefit from just such an experience, I would encourage you to enter the search term, "Dolphin swim Orlando" into Google and see what you come up with.  Good luck!

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
