Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Hi again-one more question. I'm hoping to get a DAS card for my daughter with autism. Can guest services at Downtown Disney provide this or do we need to be assessed in an actual park? Not looking forward to the guest services line at rope drop! Thanks!

    Hello Kara!

    My youngest also is autistic and Walt Disney World is probably his favorite place to visit! The Disability Access Service Card should help you and your family have a magical time!

    Unfortunately, I don’t believe Guest Relations at Downtown Disney is able to provide the Disability Access Service Card. The good news is that when the parks first open is generally a good time to visit Guest Relations as I find the lines to be longer a couple hours after the parks open. Just in my own experience.

    You will only have to get the card once and this card can be used throughout your visit, so you only have to visit Guest Relations on your first day. The Disability Access Service Card will also work in addition to the Fastpass+ service, meaning you can utilize both. 

    If you are looking for a quiet place to watch the Fireworks at night, we tend to leave the park and take the monorail to Disney’s Polynesian Resort with late dinner reservations at ‘Ohana to view the fireworks from indoors. Or, if dinner was a while before the show, you can walk down to the beach and view the fireworks there as well. It is quieter and still has great views. 

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
