    Are there any special programs on any of the Disney cruises for children with special needs and autism?

    Ahoy, Leidy!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so glad you cruised by to "sea" us here and are considering an enchanted voyage with Captain Mickey. It's a wonderful way to experience the magic of Disney in a completely different atmosphere! 
    You have an excellent question, and I hope I can steer you in the right direction to help you figure out if a Disney Cruise is a good fit for your crew. Disney Cruise Line does welcome young sailors with special needs to participate in the youth clubs, but cannot provide one-on-one care during secured programming, if that is required for your child. The Special Services Team is a wonderful resource for you as you plan an adventure on board Disney Cruise Line because they will be able to answer specific questions about cruising with a child with special needs. There are two ways to reach out to them via phone at (407) 566-3602 or by email at specialservices@disneycruise.com. They will be happy to hEAR from you and provide you with important information you need to know. 
    Thank you for continuing to use the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Leidy! If we can assist you further, please let us know.
    Have a magical day!
