Walt Disney World's newest attraction at Magic Kingdom theme park, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, in New Fantasyland is sure to be a hit with guests. Disney Imagineers must have also considered their Autistic guests in designing every aspect of this attraction.

While I will not have the opportunity until late October to personally experience this with my son, I was very excited to see a video of the interactive queue for this attraction. Everything about the queue is sensory driven and will definitely captivate many Autistic guests. The queue encompasses many sensory aspects and presents them in a fashion that fosters learning in a hands on and fun manner. The best way, in my opinion to learn.

I will also use this video to acclimate my son to what he can expect while learning to wait for longer periods in the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train queue.

Thank you Disney Imagineers....no stone is ever left unturned and your attention to details is to be commended!

Have a look at the video released by the Disney Parks Blog and enjoy!

Booking Disney Cruise Line with an Autistic Child In Mind

Planning, organizing, strategizing on a daily basis for an autistic child puts me in a state of constant thinking. You see, I absolutely hate inconveniencing other people be it the driver behind me  to the person standing in line in front of me at the grocery store. Always on the lookout for a a melt-down, a spontaneous, loud, sometimes inappropriate vocalization where folks don't understand and give you 'the look'. I have developed thick skin, but somedays words cut to the quick and it hurts.

Planning a Disney cruise with an autistic child in tow, means a lot of critical planning, for even the most taken for granted moments. You see, my child is a boy, and if I take him out in public, I have to make sure I can accommodate all of his needs, right down to toileting and how long the line in a store might be. So let me begin.

Booking the cruise can be a daunting process and while some folks like the luxury of a travel agent, I prefer doing everything myself. Firstly, no one can…
