This is awesome! What a great idea. We traveled on JetBlue back in January and were so impressed with how kind the flight attendants and pilot were to our 5 year old autistic boy. They let him play in the cockpit and honk the airplane horn. It was kind of terrifying, but he didn't break anything (as far as I know.)

I feel bad for the family traveling to DisneyWorld though, since Disney has decided to discontinue its Guest Assistance Pass program as of October 9. (Their new system sounds confusing and difficult to use, not to mention impractical for everyone.)
