    We will be traveling to Disney for 3 days. For 16 & 14-year-old boys into Star Wars & Marvel & an 11-year-old daughter with special needs, which 3 parks do you recommend we visit? Also, any tips for traveling with a special needs child?

    Welcome to planDisney, Katie!

    I am particularly thrilled to answer your question. As a lover of all things Marvel and Star Wars, I have always enjoyed having the opportunity to help fellow fans maximize their Walt Disney World Resort experience. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, it is a joy for me to equip parents with the tools to help them navigate their vacation with a child who may have differing needs. Let's start planning your trip!

    First, we should discuss which theme parks to visit. I highly recommend Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT for your boys. A few must-do attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios are Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run. Make sure they explore all the details of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and perhaps even consider building their own Lightsaber at Savi's Workshop. At EPCOT, join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind so your boys can become Honorary Guardians and save the Galaxy. Your daughter will also have endless options to experience at both parks. She can enter Andy's backyard at Toy Story Land or shrink to rodent size on Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. For your third theme park, I suggest exploring Magic Kingdom Park. Your daughter can enjoy classic attractions like Peter Pan's Flight while your boys enter the grid on TRON Lightcycle / Run

    Now, a few suggestions for planning a successful trip for your daughter. First, I recommend registering for DAS (Disability Access Service). You can pre-register virtually with a Cast Member as soon as 30 days before your visit. DAS is designed for Guests who may have difficulty tolerating a wait in line by giving the option to schedule a return time for select attractions. Also, I have found this Guide that provides details about each attraction extremely helpful for deciding which attractions will be most enjoyed based on any sensory sensitivities. I hope this all helps you start planning! Feel free to visit me at planDisney for any additional questions.

    Enjoy making magical memories!
