    My 2 year old has Cystic Fibrosis and will be at WDW in march. I will like to know if there is anything special I can do for her to make it super special.

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for writing.  Many families with special needs report that Walt Disney World is a very user-friendly destination.  I'm proud to say that I'm one of them.  If your tiny tot's needs prevent her from waiting in long lines, or make doing so difficult, I recommend stopping at Guest Relations at whichever park you visit first to request a Guest Assistance Card (GAC).  The GAC will allow your daughter and up to five people in your party to access attractions via an alternate, less-crowded entrance.  Although this won't eliminate wait times, it should greatly reduce them and make your trip more enjoyable for your daughter. For more specific information for guests with disabilities, please clickHERE.   If this is a first trip, be sure to pick up some free "First Visit" buttons while you are at Guest Relations!  As for other tips, I think you'll find many attractions that are just perfect for a two-year old princess, that she'll be able to ride right beside you.  Some of my favorites for little ones include:  It's a Small World, Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, and Disney Junior Live! 

    You may also want to book a special character meal to celebrate your family's trip.  Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling 1-407-WDW-DINE.  I hope your daughter and entire family have a vacation as magical as she is!
