3. SERVICES FOR GUESTS WITH AUTISM OR COGNITIVE DISABILITIES
The “decision makers” at Walt Disney World want to make sure that every child or adult with any kind of disability has the opportunity to experience the magic of Disney like everyone else, and this goal is accomplished by providing special services like the ones listed here:
Accessing Attractions — The Disability Access Service Card is designed for guests who are unable to tolerate extended waits at attractions due to a disability. This service allows guests to schedule a return time that is comparable to the current queue wait for the given attraction.
Break Areas — Should the guest with the cognitive disability become over-stimulated or need some “down time”, dozens of areas are available throughout the Parks where a guest can “take a break.”
Companion Restrooms — Companion restrooms are available at select locations at all the theme parks. Each of these special restrooms is larger than a traditional one, which can be helpful is a guest needs assistance or requires that someone accompany him or her.
