    My 6 yr old nephew has autism. We have read about the great work Disney does for guests with disabilities at allears.net. When we go to "Guest Services" for one park pass to minimize lines will that apply to the other parks on other days? Thanks

    Hi John,

    Your party only needs to visit one Guest Relations location at the beginning of your trip.  At the Magic Kingdom, Guest Relations is located inside City Hall (which is on  your left as you enter.)  Your nephew's guardian should explain his needs to the Cast Member that assists them, including the fact that his disability prevents him from being able to wait in prolonged lines.  In addition, if your nephew will be using a stroller (this is not, at all, atypical at Disney because of the large amount of walking, so if it's easier for him to "ride in style" feel free), mention this to the Cast Member as well, and you will be given a special sticker for the stroller that permits him to access some attractions via a wheelchair entrance.   The Guest Assistance Card will note the length of time you are staying at Disney, and will be good for the entire duration of your trip in all of the theme parks.   You will need to present the Guest Assistance Card at every attraction, so the guardian of your nephew may want to wear it in an ID badge-style case around their neck.  It's made out of paper, and can take a beating after a few days in the parks!

    I hope your nephew has a Disney vacation as magical as he is!
