Special Needs? [Diabetes]
I just finished volunteering at a Diabetes Camp for very young children (ages 4-7) and one of the moms found out I am a "Disney Nut". I was told (please let me know if this is true and what the process truly is) that you can go to "Guest Relations" and tell them "My child has Type 1 Diabetes etc" and you get a special pass. The pass allows you to not wait in the line yet you wait the duration of the posted wait time? Her example was giving this card to the CM at Toy Story and then returning after the length of the wait time. Please let me know if this is true, what the process is and who it applies to? Thanks. The idea was not having her child stand in the sun driving his blood sugar into the ground (as she put it). I just had no idea about this and being a nurse who has Type 1 Diabetes who works with small children with diabetes I want to have my facts straight.

It's called a Guest Assistance Card (GAC). It makes accommodations to those that need them (outside obvious wheel chair, etc). You go to guest services and tell them your needs and they give you a pass based in those needs. It's not a "front of the line" pass, but more of an alternate line pass (out of sun, crowds, etc.).

Depending on the situation the guest services/City hall CM's may issue an alternate entrance pass which would allow someone to wait in an alternative area instead of the regular queue. When ever possible they expect guests to use the Fast pass system to assist with their needs. The ONLY Front of the line passes are issued to guests from Make a Wish or similar foundations for critically ill guests.
