    I was told about the GAC, and told the person would "look" at my child to determine needs. His needs are all invisible. What are other people's experiences. He will need his stroller as a wheelchair, and other things.

    Hi there Charles!

    I know a little bit about the GAC because we required it on our last family trip. My father has a hard time walking long distances and also has trouble with waiting in long lines due to other medical issues. We were able to use the Guest Assistance Card "GAC" last year and it saved our family vacation. There were times when we would be rolling him through the park and weren't sure if we could make it into a ride without the use of the Guest Assistance Card because of the amount of people in the ride cue. To make sure my Dad was able to receive the Guest Assistance Card, I had him go to all of his doctors and had them write a recommendation and a small explanation of his disability. When we arrived at Guest Relations they looked at the letter and wrote up the GAC for the duration of the trip. The GAC does not automatically allow you front of line privileges but it will give you a more relaxed location to wait for the next available time to go on a ride or take in a show. I hope you and your family have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort! If you have more questions, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
