Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I am a single grandmother, handicapped, with custody of grandchild (7 yrs old). When we traveled to Disney (just the two of us) the GAC worked, how will this new pass accommodate us?

- Hi Jacalyn!
With the new system, Guests in wheelchairs or ECVs who are able to wait in standard queues where available, will not need a Disability Access Service (DAS) Card. If there are queues that require Guests in wheelchairs or ECVs to enter through alternate queues, you can see a Cast Member (CM) at that attraction for assistance. They will give you a return time to come back to the attraction based on the current wait time.
If you are unable to wait in a regular queue for other reasons, you should go to Guest Relations to obtain a DAS. Once you obtain a DAS, you can go to an attraction and see a CM at the entrance to get a return time to enter the FASTPASS (FP) or other alternate entrance if necessary. The DAS differs from a FP in that there is no window return time so there is no pressure to make it back to that attraction within a certain time frame.
You can only obtain a return time for one attraction at a time but you can go and get another DAS return time for a different attraction as soon as you've finished. FP and FastPass+ can be used in addition to the DAS. Please keep in mind that there may be some changes along the way for the new DAS system.
Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS that you may find helpful.
