    Going to WDW in 43 days. DS is ADHD and gets way too excited with new things. Is there quiet places in the parks, where I can take him to calm down a little if needed?

    Hi Renata,

    Each of the Disney theme parks has a baby care center (locations noted on the park maps). These are air-conditioned, quiet rooms with gentle lighting and calm seating areas. While these are primarily intended for parents of infants and toddlers, I have often seen families with older children waiting there when the children have special needs or sensory issues. You'll be welcome to stay there and rest or color for a bit before heading off into the simulation of the parks.

    You may also want to consider stopping by the Guest Relations office of the first theme park you visit. You might qualify for a Guest Assistance Card. Depending on the type of card issued, you may be able to wait for some rides in a quiet room, rather than in the regular queue. This could cut down on the amount of noise and movement your son is exposed to during his visit.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
