    What are the accommodations for an individual with special needs in the parks? In the past we were issued a special pass from guest relations to gain access on rides and attractions. Is this program still available? Thanks.

    Hi James ~

    ​I have a son with several types of special needs and I am happy to assist you.

    The Guest Assistance Card (GAC) has now been replaced by the Disability Access Service Card (DAS). You can request a DAS by going to Guest Relations at any of the theme parks. A Cast Member will ask the Guest requesting the DAS (or a parent if it is a child) some questions so they can best accommodate their specific needs. The Cast Members at Guest Relations will take a photo of the Guest for which the DAS is being issued, go over the terms and conditions, and have them (or a parent if it is a minor) sign the card.

    Here is some additional information regarding the details of how the DAS works.

    I've also included a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS .

    Guests can only obtain a DAS return time for one attraction at a time but can request another DAS return time as soon as they have finished one. If available, FastPass+ (FP+) can be used in addition to the DAS. If you are eligible to make FP+ selections prior to your trip, I would encourage you to do so.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR to help you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
