Going to theme parks can be tons of fun for the whole family. But it can also be a time filled with great stress and anxiety. The big crowds, the long endless lines- it’s enough to make even the most prepared parent go crazy!
I don’t know any kid who likes to stand in long crowded lines. And if your kid has special needs, the day can quickly turn disastrous. Our five year old son, Lukas, has epilepsy. Any change in his routine or diet can easily trigger an episode.
I’m going to break it down to just TWO tips that will make your experience a lot less stressful and a lot more enjoyable.
Let’s get to it!
1. Go during the weekdays when school is still in session.
We had season passes last year and each time we went it was at most at half capacity. The photo below was taken in May. Look at how vacant Super Silly Fun Land is!
2. Go to the Guest Relations office and ask for a Guest Assistance Pass.
The Guest Relations office is located near the entrance to the right. Explain to one of the team members what your child’s limitations are. The staff is very accommodating and will go above and beyond to help you. You will receive a Guest Assistance Pass which is essentially a front of the line pass. Shout out to Moostafah!
That’s it! Just do those TWO things and you’ll have a fantastic time! It’s made our experience so much better. Our entire family can now enjoy our time at the park!
