Following Disney’s recent announcement of the Disney Accessibility System/Disability Access Service (DAS) program, the company recently released the guide Planning a Trip to the Walt Disney World® Resort – A Resource for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The 40-page guide is a comprehensive look at theme park attractions, transportation, and other areas of concern for guests with cognitive or sensory disabilities. Particularly helpful is the list of potential concerns for attractions including noise, wetness, scariness, and elements of surprise, among several others. The guide is on the Disney company web site at https://wdpromedia.disney.go.com/media/wdpro-assets/help/guest-services/cognitive-disabilities-services/wdw_cognitive_guide.pdf

Additionally, Disney has released a brief guide to the DAS program, which can be found here.
