Quoting Mommy of a giggler!:" Two boys, 3 and 5. Favorite characters are pretty much any of them lol but Goofy is a big one and anything ... [snip!] ... on his own lol! The kids and I are more into rides that are like watching a show (like the Alice in Wonderland for example)."
When you get there go to City Hall (on the left hand side of main street when you walk in) you can get a guest assistance card there for your son with autism and you can find out where Goofy will be and when so they definitely see him... if you are willing to spend the little extra cash... brunch or dinner (I prefer brunch) at goofy's kitchen is a must do
it's an all you can eat buffet so it's great to go to the latest seating for brunch then you can do a quick light snack in the morning and a cheaper/ light dinner... it usually works out to the day being about the same price as other dining options.
They also have a Jedi Training Academy (a MUST go for star wars fans within the age range... (4-6 but usually 3 can get away with still doing it) I can't wait til DS is old enough! lol) and the aladdin musical spectacular in DCA is FABULOUS! the genie is HILARIOUS on and off stage..
Haunted Mansion is still great IMO but I am a little biased since my best friend works there.. but it is pretty fun... Jungle Cruise is great for little ones too I have a bunch of friends who work there and they're all so entertaining while touring the jungle
tip for the dole whip/ tiki room... there are two lines for the dole whip, one inside where the tiki que is another outside where you don't have to sit through tiki... the one in the tiki que move much faster because they're supposed to serve you first
just a nice little tip
also Cars land gets really busy really fast if you want to go on radiator springs racers the fastpasses are usually out within an hour or two of park opening and the line is usually about an hr and a half to three hours long (and that's on a good day) utilize the rider switch passes if your LOs aren't tall enough that way whoever waits with the kids can go right back through the fastpass que and they don't have to wait an additional 3 hrs
Also if you wanna save a bit on souvenirs shop at your local disney store or target before hand in park products have a huge mark up
