Disneyland Paris and the other Disney theme parks are normally happy to allow guests with special needs to use special entrances to the rides which often means they do not have to queue.


Disneyland was cool. Because my sister got a special pass we got to queue jump on lots of the rides. Unfortunately we couldn't convince her to go on any of the really scary rides so we had to wait for those!

We were very impressed with the way the resort helped us enjoy our visit. Our 12-year-old son has Asperger syndrome and when we produced a letter from our GP highlighting this and the difficulty we would have in standing in lengthy queues for rides/character greetings, we were given an Easy Access Pass. This does not guarantee priority at the queues; however, our experience was that we had very short waits (three to ten minutes at most). This really added to our enjoyment. The pass also allows other people in your party to accompany the passholder, so a family group can all stay together.
