Disney has published some guides that may really help you as you prepare to take your trip. There is a guide specifically for those with cognitive disabilities. If that is something your child struggles with, you will want to be sure to download this guide at the Disney website. Go to http://www.disneyworld..disney.go.guest-services. You should be able to find the different guides there.
Once you get there, and if your child is able to do this, allow them to explore the hotel on their own. I know my siblings and I used to love go to find to the ice machine and ride the elevators if you’re staying at a Disney property, your children will probably run into some characters around the hotel. If you’re not sending your children by themselves, go around with them.
Don’t rush, rush, rush. Take your meals. Take some time to relax by the pool. You know your children. You’ll know what they need. Do the things that you know will mean the most to them.
