    Hi, we are going to the Walt Disney World resort in November, one of my Children has Asperger's and ADHD and waiting in lines is a big challenge for him, are there any accommodations for children with these kinds of special needs. Thank you

    Hello there, Melinda! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and ask your wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    In my personal experience, Walt Disney World Resort does a phenomenal job providing accommodations and services for their Guests with disabilities! I am consistently amazed at their commitment to providing each and every Guest with amazing vacations and creating absolutely magical experiences!

    There is actually a specific service available to Guests that have difficulties waiting in a conventional queue line environment due to disability! The Disability Access Service allows Guests to receive a return time for attractions based on the current standby wait time. Guests are then free to return any time at or after their given time in order to experience the attraction. Guests interested in the Disability Access Service should stop by any Guest Relations location at the front of any theme park. Here, you will be able to discuss your child's specific concerns with a Cast Member to assist in identifying if the Disability Access Service is the best fit for your child! 

    I hope this information will assist you in planning the perfect vacation for you and your family! Please let us know if we can assist you by answering any other Walt Disney World Resort questions!
