    Hi Tanya! I have a 11 years old daughter who is autistic. Since it is not something we can see,it is better to bring a note from her doctor to explain her condition or it is not necessary? Thank you!!!!

    Hi there Patricia,

    Many families with kids on the Autistic Spectrum report that Disney is a very user-friendly destination for their special children.  I'm one of them.  You will not need to present medical documentation to receive a Guest Assistance Card (GAC).  Simply go to Guest Relations at whichever park you visit first, and let the cast member who assists you know about your daughter's needs and your concerns (e.g., that her disability makes waiting in line difficult) and you will receive a GAC for your daughter which will enable her and up to five people in your party access attractions via an alternate entrance.

    Have a magical trip!
