I can most definitely help with this one. DD21 lives for amusement parks. We have probably visited 12-15 of them numerous times since she has been tall enough to do the rides, as she loves the thrill rides. In every park (Universal in FL and CA, Disneyland/Disneyworld, Knotts Berry, numerous 6 Flags, Hershey, Rye Playland) we have visited with dd (multiple disabilities - seizure disorder, adhd, ld, etc.) all have special passes for her. Some parks ask for letters from Drs. confirming the diagnosis, and explaining why she can't stand on the lines. The only park we were not able to get a pass to was Dorney Park. We actually wrote a letter to their corporate office, telling them they were the exception to the rule. No response. Disneyworld has also gotten
"tougher" with their policy. Depending on the ride operator, they will let you wait in the a/c for the amount of time the other people without passes are waiting in line. I must say - most ride operators let her right on, but we did meet a few that made us wait. (not nearly as long as the regular line - but 20 minutes can seem like forever sometimes)
