7. Without fail, make use of Disney’s DAS Pass.
Disney offers a wonderful accommodation for children with Autism, called the DAS Pass or Disability Access Service Pass. It is for anyone in the parks who has a disability that makes it difficult for them to wait in the typical queue leading up to an attraction. But you must go to Guest Relations inside the Magic Kingdom when you first get there and request one. It’s a relatively quick and non-intrusive process during which a Cast Member will take a digital picture of your child, which is not made public, and assign to him or her a DAS Pass. It can even be linked to your child’s Magic Band. You will also need to let the Cast Member know how many people are in your party.
Once you have the DAS Pass, you will be able to go to the podium at most of the rides and attractions in the park for which there are queues (i.e., Splash Mountain, Peter Pan’s Flight, Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion, etc.) and request a return time to use your DAS Pass. The Cast Member will give you a return time and scan your child’s Magic Band. You and your party will then return and be able to enjoy the attraction with only a minimal wait, if any, depending on the FastPass+ line since that’s the queue through which you will proceed with a DAS Pass. Please note that the DAS Pass isn’t usually used at attractions for which the queue moves extremely quickly or for which a FastPass+ isn’t offered. These can include Disney’s Philharmagic, The Carousel of Progress, The Tommorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, etc.
