    My 4 yr old Alice has Aspergers & I was told about the Disney Autism Cruise. I would love to take her but need any info about notes from Drs. I take her to DW often & thought I'd try something new. Can I bring a mom/child if they dont have special

    Hi Angie,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  I am excited to hear that you are considering a Disney Cruise - one of my favorite things about the cruise is having the seclusion and serenity of your stateroom only moments away at any given time while onboard.  This is a blessing for those that often need a break from the excitement and stimulation of vacation.

    Although Disney Cruise Line strives to accommodate guests of all abilities - they do not specifically sponsor a voyage for guests with Autism.  There are agencies and groups out there that independently plan cruises on various cruise lines for guests with Autism, but this is not Disney Cruise Line specific.  That being said, I highly recommend considering a Disney Cruise, and encourage you to call their special reservations department at(407) 566-3500 to speak with a cast member that can offer information on accommodating a child with special needs.

    I hope this helps, good luck with your decision!
