    My 4 year old son has crohns disease, does he qualify for an assistance card?

    Hi Elizabeth!
    The Guest Assistance Card (GAC) is for guests who may have difficulties with long waits, standing for long periods of time, ride access,  etc. If this applies to your little guy, then I would absolutely go to Guest Services at any of the theme parks and inquire about one for your family.
    Simply explain your son's limitations (you do not need to go into great detail) and that should be all that is needed. Each GAC is unique to the guest's circumstance and does not guarantee immediate access to attractions. However, in most cases, if a ride has an alternate entrance, you are usually directed to it and it minimizes most wait times. The Cast Member at each attraction will assist you with where to go.
    I hope this helps and I wish you and your family a Magical trip!! :)
