    My 3yr old is on the spectrum and still in diapers. She has a meltdown when you try and lay her down to change her in public restrooms. We use the huggies slip on diapers. Anyone know a grocery store in the area that would deliver them to the Contemporary

    Hi, Kristen!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Like you, I am also the parent of a child on the autism spectrum.  One of the reasons why we love vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort is that they go above and beyond to make the magic accessible to everyone.  The Walt Disney World Resort has a variety of services in place to assist guests with disabilities.  When I visit the Walt Disney World theme parks with my son, we utilize Disability Access Service which is meant to assist guests whose disability prevents them from waiting in a traditional queue environment.  Disability Access Service has been a lifesaver for our family!

    Kristen, I am happy to tell you that you can certainly have groceries, including diapers or pull-ups delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests often use grocery delivery services such as Garden Grocer, Instacart, or Amazon Prime Now.  When you place an order with a grocery delivery service, you will use your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel's address as the delivery location and add "c/o your name," as well as your check-in date.  The service will then deliver the order to either your resort's Bell Services or arrange a specific time to meet you in the lobby of the resort.  Once you are checked into your room, you may either pick up the order at Bell Services or use your in-room phone to call them for delivery.  Note that if you do have Bell Services deliver to your room, there will be a fee added to your guest folio.

    Since it sounds like using the regular public restrooms in the theme parks could be stressful for your daughter, you may want to take advantage of the many companion restrooms conveniently located throughout the theme parks.  The First Aid Centers and Baby Care Centers are also great places for you to take a break with your daughter.

    As you prepare for your magical vacation, you may want to refer to this Resource for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities.  This guide contains a great deal of helpful information and suggestions.  If you have additional questions about vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort with a child on the autism spectrum, or if you have any other trip-planning questions, please visit us again.

    See ya real soon!
