    I was wondering if tickets are discounted for children with disabilities? Our children are 5 years old, one has autism (high need), our daughter has epilepsy and our other son has ADHD. Our children may not be able to tolerate a full day at the park.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Patti!

    I have a special needs son so I completely understand your situation.  Some days my son does great the whole day and other times one of us has to take him back to the hotel early.

    At this time, Disney does not offer reduced admission at the theme parks or water park for Guests with disabilities. They do try their best to make their parks as accessible as possible so that all Guests may enjoy them to the fullest of their abilities.

    There are a few things you can do when searching for the best prices on tickets. First check the special offers that Disney is currently offering with their vacation packages.

    Visit the website MouseSavers.com. They're a great resource for finding discounts on a lot of things at Disney. Also check out UndercoverTourist.com for tickets. If you're a AAA member, check their Disney discounts and perks. You may not be able to save a ton on tickets, but there are ways to save money at Disney.  Let us know if you need some ideas.

    I recently assisted another Guest with a few suggestions for traveling with special needs children that you may find helpful as well.

    Please feel free to visit with all of your planning questions.  We are honored to assist you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
