    Hi Kizzy ~

    It sounds like you have a lot going on and I think you're smart to plan ahead. The more planning you do prior to your trip, the more time you have to relax during your trip.

    Your husband and son should both qualify for a Disability Access Service Card (DAS). Explain to the Cast Members at Guest Relations that there will be times when one of them will do an attraction that the other cannot. A Cast Member will ask you some questions so they can best accommodate both of their specific needs.

    You can only obtain a DAS return time for one attraction at a time but can request another DAS return time as soon as your kids have finished one. If available, FastPass+ (FP+) can be used in addition to the DAS. If you are eligible to make FP+ selections prior to your trip, I would encourage you to do so.

    Here is some additional information regarding the details of how the DAS works. I've also included a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS.

    Although he doesn't typically use a wheelchair, it may help your husband if you rent one for him to use in the parks. It is hard to make it through a trip to Disney without someone stepping on your foot or bumping into you with a stroller or something. Here is some information about wheelchairs in the parks that may assist you if you decide that may be a good route for him.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
