Guest Assistance Cards

I was wondering, not having heard anything since shortly after the announcement, what the general experience was with this system. How does this compare to the new FP+ or is there any benefit of one over the other. We are considering another trip to WDW in early 2015 and was wondering which would be best or my son and his particular issues, Aspergers if anyone wishes to know.

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

There is no choosing between the two, you use both in tandem. First you set up your My Disney Experience account and make sure everyone is included with the correct information. Add your resort reservations to it, then your tickets and then you pick your FastPass+ attractions for each day. Do this the first chance you get, it takes some time and effort. When you arrive at the first park, get a GAC for your son and all his party that is valid for your entire stay. Anyone can go to the attraction with the GAC card and get a return time, the person who's card it is, however must go on that ride in order for all to go on that ride.

Now you stagger the FP+ rides with the GAC return times and you should have virtually no wait on any attraction. Enjoy. Repeat the next day.

Hi guys, im looking for some help regarding GAC at Universal? My mum has crohn's disease and both of my parents are diabetic so need to visit the bathroom very often, i wondered if there was a GAC or equivalent that we could apply for to use for the 2 weeks of our holiday. And also, would we be able to use it in busch gardens?

I look forward to any replies
