    Hi I will be traveling with an Autistic and ADHD 10 year old boy for the first time to Disney. I am wondering what accommodations Disney offers, to help shorten his wait times and anything else. How do I get 1St time Disney bottoms for him and his sister?

    Hi Taveia:

    With the new Disability Access Service (DAS) card, Guest Services will work with you to accommodate your family's unique experiences.  Simply explain your child's needs to Guests Services (located within each theme park).

    With the DAS card, you will receive a return time for attractions based on their current wait time so your family can take in other attractions or take a stroll instead of waiting on a longer line.  Guests with the DAS card do not need to be present to get a return time for attractions, however, they must be present when returning to board the attraction.  So if your child won't understand walking up to an attraction only to get a return time and have to walk away, you can send someone else in your party to pick up the return  time.

    With the DAS card, there isn't a strict return time frame (unlike with FastPass+), so if you see that the line is too long when you return to ride, you can always return later.  The good news is that you can also use the DAS card in addition to FastPass+, which may provide your family with additional support.  FastPass+ allows you to select ride times in advance for some of Disney World's most popular attractions. 

    While at Guests Services, ask for a "1st Visit" button for your children and wear it proudly.  Many Cast Members will great your children with a kind gesture to make the visit more memorable.

    Enjoy your vacation.
