    So many questions so little time :). My nephew has turrets and waiting in long lines could be quite interesting is there anyway around this? We are planning on bringing items to help distract him but you never know what can happen.....Thank you

    Hi, Krista!  There are a couple of things that you might want to look at to help you navigate the prak with your nephew.  Both options will help you avoid having to stand in long lines, and hopefully make the trip more comfortable for your family.

    The first thing to do is make sure you book your FastPass+ times.  You can do it up to 60 days in advance if you have already purchased your tickets by that time, or you can make those reservations inside each of the theme parks in several locations.  Just look for the signs for the kiosks in the park.  When you book those FastPass+ options, you will be given a one hour window, during which you will return to the attraction and use a separate queue reserved for guests with FastPass+ times. The wait should be much shorter than it would be if you had to wait in a standby line, and because you will know in advance what time to arrive, you can busy yourselves with other attractions, dining, shopping or exploring in between times.

    The other option you could look into is the Disabled Access Service card.  This card enables you to go to an attraction and be assigned a return time based on the wait time of the attraction.  For example, if you want to visit Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and the wait time is 60 minutes, your DAS card will be marked with a return time of about 50 minutes. You can go do other things, and then return when your specified time is up to have a shorter wait.

    I hope you all get to enjoy a wonderful vacation at Walt Disney World!
