    Cherelle Asked

    My daughter has autism and I will be requesting a guest assistance pass when we arrive in November. We will be a party of 8 and I've read that the limit to the card is 5 plus the person with the disability. My question is will Disney make exception for 8?

    Hi Cherelle!
    One of the ways in which they have made park experiences more pleasurable for special needs guests is by using the Guest Assistance Card. When arriving at your park of choice, head to Guest Relations. They will ask you questions with respect to your stay, in order to make sure that they are able to provide you with GAC that is most appropriate for your child. It always helps to bring a note from the doctor explaining what your child's diagnosis, as some disabilities are not always obvious to the outside eye.

    You are correct in that the GAC is for six persons, your child and five guests. Unfortunately, your party will have to divide up as Cast Members do enforce the five guest limit. They will recommend that those who are able to wait without need of special accommodations remain in line, and they will regroup your party prior to boarding the attraction. They will make sure that your daughter is taken well care of, and is able to experience the attraction as best as possible. Remember, your GAC is valid for the entire duration of your stay.
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation.
