    Hi, Could you tell me please if you pay full price for a child with a lot of special needs for entry to the theme parks?

    Hello Laura!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a magical week.

    Any child 3 years of age and older does require a Walt Disney World Theme Park Ticket to gain entry into the parks. Once inside you can head over to Guest Relations and talk to a Cast Member about your child’s needs to see if they qualify for the Disability Access Service Card. It’s a great program that can help families and guests with a variety of special needs enjoy the parks with ease. Walt Disney World prides itself on helping Guests of all abilities create some magic! My youngest is autistic with a few other medical conditions and he’s always had the most amazing time.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
