    My family wants to go to DisneyQuest some time during the last 2 weeks of June. Will it be crowded,and too much for an autistic 12 year old? I think he would like if if he could have the place to himself! Any advice would be appreciated.

    I think it may depend on how much auditory defensiveness he has... my understanding is that it is loud and there are lots of flashing lights inside. Our 8-yr-old, who is slightly autistic, did OK there with his dad and sister on a moderately crowded night, but he also got lost a few times in there. The CMs did go out of their way to include him, including letting him push the start buttons on atractions when he was too afraid to go in.
