    I am going to D World in Sept. with my son, who has Autism. I was told there was a bracelet you could obtain for a child with Autism to provide a decreased wait time. A Disney rep told me there was no such option and there are no other options.Isthis tru

    Hi Judey,

    Thanks for writing.  I have a son on the spectrum as well.  What you are likely referring to is actually a card and not a bracelet.  You can pick up a Guest Assistance Card at Guest Relations at whichever park you visit first.  Explain your son's needs to the cast member who assists you (i.e., that he has a medical condition that makes waiting in lines difficult, if not impossible) and you'll get a card that will enable your pirate and up to five people in your party to access attractions via an alternate entrance.  This won't eliminate your wait time completely, however, in most cases, it will greatly decrease it, and likely make for a much more magical trip.  Have a wonderful time, and feel free to write back for other suggestions!
