    Hi Kirsten, We have a twelve year old autistic son who loves the thrill rides, over and over again. While we have the benefit of the GAC, we find it challenging to ride with him multiple times. Is there someone I can hire to ride multiple times? Thank you

    Hi Jackie!

    Thanks so much for your GREAT question! It's so great to hear that your son enjoys the "big kid thrills" so much at Walt Disney World ... but I can relate to you not necessarily wanting to ride the attractions as many times in a row as he may enjoy!

    There's a service in Orlando who specialize in child care services including in-room child care and parents' helper services. They are called Kids Nite Out and may be found online on their website of the same name.

    Many of my fellow Moms Panelist friends have used their services in the past and have nothing but fantastic things to say about them. I just spoke directly to them on your behalf to inquire about what they may have available to fit your needs.

    You can hire one of their "Parents Helpers" to accompany you inside the parks at Walt Disney World. They cannot take your son into the park without you, but can accompany you around for the day or however long you wish, and they WILL ride the attractions with your son - so you can relax a bit or avoid those extra rides on thrills that may be, well, not so great for your equilibrium or tummy! ;)

    Current rates as of January 2012 are as follows:
    $16 per hour and a 4 hour minimum booking
    $10 transportation fee to get your Helper to the location
    *You provide the park ticket for the day for your Helper

    It's recommended that your booking be made 2-4 weeks in advance.
    You can call toll-free from Canada by dialing 1-800-696-8105.

    I really hope this service works out for you Jackie and that you & your family are able to enjoy an exceptionally Magical time on your next visit to Walt Disney World!

    Please don't hesitate to visit me again if I can provide any further assistance or advice to you.
