Quiet room for sensory overload at WDW?


Earning My Ears
Mar 29, 2022
Hello, We have a 10 yr old son with Autism. At times he can get sensory overload in the parks. Does anyone know if WDW parks, all of them, have quiet rooms to duck into for a bit? I saw recently that universal has added them but im not sure about WDW.
WDW does have spots throughout each park that tend to be quieter. But to be honest in answering your question, no WDW does not have designated "quiet rooms" where you can go for an escape. Check out the links above, particularly the Resource for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities; page 14 shares some of the suggested break locations that tend to be quieter. Most of these are outdoors and how low stimulation they are may depend on who else happens to be hanging around at that time. Also note that you may need a MobileOrder to access QS locations.

Also, if you need to get out of the park to a much quieter area, you can leave the park and return later.
Some people go back to their resort, but plan on an hour between locations if you are using Disney transportation.
If you drove and paid for parking, save your receipt to avoid needing to pay again.

EPCOT, Disney Hollywood Studio and MK have resorts within walking distance. Although you can’t use the pool, you can walk around the grounds and find quiet places to chill.
MK has walking paths to Grand Floridian and Contemporary or you can use the monorail or boats to other close resorts.

There is a walking path between Disney Hollywood Studio and EPCOT‘s World Showcase entrance which goes thru Boardwalk. You can also take a Friendship Boat between the same places.
