Many times my child with autism needs a quiet place to see some of the over-stimulating events eq. WISHES, parades, Spectro parade... although he wants to see these events is there a "safe place" separate from the "excited crowd"? That would really help.

Hi, my youngest daughter has asperger's, which is a form of autism. There really isn't a quiet place, however, when you enter Magic Kingdom through the gate to your right is the Train Depot. If you go upstairs to the platform that overlooks Mainstreet U.S.A., as long as there is not a private party roping off the platform, you can go up and stand and sit at a little table, and wait for the parade.
The first time we took our youngest daughter to see WISHES, we purchased noise cancelling headphones and placed them on her head, and played her favorite music, so as the pretty sparkles in the sky as she would say, she wouldn't hear the loud booms that would cause her to turn inside out. I hope you have a fabulous time. Heather M.
