Hi, I am a long time Dis member....am not currently planning a WDW trip but thought this forum could help. My severly autistic daughter is 8. She can walk just fine. But, as she gets older, I am finding that safety in parking lots has become an issue. Especially at large lots like Sams Club where we might have to park far away. Having to hold her hand all the way to the store entrance is getting hard to do as she resists hand holding for that long. I am frantic that she will someday run away from me and possibly get hit by cars that don't see her. Do you think it is possible for me to get a permanent "handicapped" parking pass for this reason? How do I do this - through our pediatrician? Thanks for any info. or thoughts on this.
