    My Son has Asperger's and likes to watch parades just not in a crowd. Is there a viewing area for kids with disabliies? If so can the whole family watch with him ?

    Hi Christine,

    As a parent with a child with Asperger's, I know how stimulating the parks can be. However, my daughter who has been coming since she was four probably feels more at ease at the Walt Disney World Resorts than other vacation spots.

    Unfortunately, there is not a separate viewing area for the parades for guests with special needs. If it was a noise issue, I would say use earplugs to reduce the noise levels.

    For the Magic Kingdom, if it is the day time parade, try viewing from Main Street but in the store which will make it feel less crowded or book a late lunch at Tony's and ask for a patio seat to view from there. If it is a night parade, take the second one to view as it will be less crowded.

    For Disney's Hollywood Studios, again view from one of the store windows. Animal Kingdom is going to be tricker but try by Island Mercantile.

    Your best bet is to ask a cast member at each park where is a less crowded viewing location. They generally are good about finding those spots.

    Have a great vacation!
