    I have a cousin who has a boy with Aspergers. His behaviour all made sense after reading that. I know never to make eye contact with him now.

    Claire, you boy should get a GAP, no questions asked, i dont see any reason why they wouldn't provide one. I am sure they would given the nature of his problem.

    Owen will certainly get a card Claire. We have never waited more than 10 minues to get on a ride with Beth. I do not mind waiting its just the queues that would freak Beth out.

    I would of thought so. Tell her to go to guest services. Unsure with dlp as have not been since 2001 and they were not very helpful with Beth back then. Hopefully they have changed now.

    We got a GAP on our first day at the parks, no problem at all, they dont need to ask what Connah's problem is has he has his cane with him. Using the Fast pass lane for everything is so much easier for Connah. Thumbs up for WDW again. x

    Take the letter from your doctor as back-up, Claire. Hopefully, you won't need it, but it's better to be safe. :)

    Each attraction at WDW has different rules on how someone with a GAP enters the attraction. I'm hoping the options will help Owen--and you!--relax a bit and enjoy your trip.
