    Traveling w/ our 3 yr old autistic son. He LOVES Mickey M. & Little Einsteins & think he would love to meet them. Will the Guest Assistance card help w/ the lines to meet them? He can't tolerate waiting for long periods. Where can meet L. Einst

    Hi Kristy,

    Sounds like your son is in for a super exciting time.  If he LOVES Mickey (and don't we all), Disney World is the place to be to meet the main mouse. Before entering any of the meet and greet lines, check with a Cast Member at the beginning of the queue and explain the situation.  Some of the meet and greet locations may offer alternate entrances while others will not. If no alternate entrance is available, they may allow someone to wait nearby with your son until your other party members near the front of the line.

    I'd also suggest that if meeting Mickey is at the top of your son's list, get to the parks when they open and head to the meet and greet location for him at soon as you enter the park.  I always make a "must do" list for each of my kids and plan to go to those attractions first and anything else we get to do is considered an extra sprinkle of pixie dust.

    Your son can see characters from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Little Einsteins and more at Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage! at Disney Hollywood Studios. Your best bet for meeting any of the Little Einstein characters will be near Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage! in the Animation Courtyard.

    Wishing you many magical memories :-)
