    Getting excited for May 6-13, 2010 trip with 3 adult mildly autistic 'children'! Have decided on in-room for breakfast (premier dining to allow for that), ADR for dinner and playing it by ear for late lunch; with some Epcot exceptions. How does that sound?

    Hi Rochelle!

         We love visiting Walt Disney World in May!  The crowds are not nearly as bad as the Summer months because most kiddos are still in school.  Your plan sounds perfect!  We almost always eat breakfast in the room and it saves us tons of time and money.  If you are interested in eating at a sit down restaraunt in the evening, then Advanced Dining Reservations are the way to go!  I'm not sure if you were aware of this or not, but the ADR window is reverting back to 180 days, beginning October 27, 2009.  This means that you will be able to make your "ressies" on November 7, 2009.  It is always a great idea to keep one meal open to play it by ear.  You never know how hungry (or full) that your group may be!

         Also, does anyone in your group have problems with standing in long lines or sensory issues?  If so, please check out this great website which may help to make your trip so much more enjoyable.  Among other things, it explains how to obtain a Guest Assistance Card for "invisible" issues, such as autism.  Have a fabulous trip!

    Much pixie dust,
