    Where in the world do I start research for Disney world in June of 2011? I also have a special needs (high functioning ) child. And do they have passes where we don't have to wait in lines because of theses special needs (Autism)?

    Hi Jeanmarie! There's so much to see and do at Walt Disney World that planning a trip can seem like a daunting task, but we're here to help you!

    The first step is to decide where to stay. Disney has hotels for every price range, and resort guests receive special perks for staying on-site, such as extra hours in the parks and free transportation from the airport and around WDW. You can browse the various hotels here to find a theme and a price range that fits your family. When you book your resort, you can choose to purchase a package that includes park tickets and a dining plan. Don't forget to check the Special Offers page to see if you can find a great deal for your trip!
     
    Next, take a look at the park calendars by clicking here (click each park and then click "calendar") to determine the operating hours during your visit, as well as the times of any parades or shows you'd like to see and the schedule of Extra Magic Hours for resort guests. Use that information to decide which park(s)  you'd like to visit each day.

    Then the really fun part begins -- planning your dining! You can browse the various Disney restaurants here, and make reservations for your meals online or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Be sure to book a meal with the characters!
     
    Visitors with special needs can request a Guest Assistance Card. Disney Mom Tanya discussed using it for a child with autism here.

    Hope this helps you get started! Come visit us again if you have more questions!
