    Hi i am bringing my daughter who has hearing loss to magic kingdom in January. Does this qualify for a DAS card?

    Hi Michelle ~

    As the Mom of a special needs child, I love that you're planning ahead! You will be happy to know that the Walt Disney World Resort provides several types of services for Guests with Hearing Disabilities including offering Sign Language interpretation at specific live theme park shows on a rotating basis.

    When you arrive at the first theme park during your visit, go to Guest Relations and speak with a Cast Member regarding your daughter's specific needs. After speaking with a Cast Member, they may issue your daughter Disability Access Service (DAS). DAS is designed to assist Guests who are unable to wait in a standard queue for medical reasons including those that are not apparent. If DAS will be the best option for your daughter, the Cast Member will take her photo and have an adult sign for her DAS.

    DAS will be linked to your daughter's MagicBand. They will need to link everyone's MagicBand in your party as well so that you can all enter an attraction with her. Once you obtain DAS, you can go to an attraction and see a Cast Member at the entrance to get a return time to come back and enter the Disney FastPass+ service queue. Your daughter's return time will show up in your My Disney Experience so be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your trip. You can only obtain a DAS return time for one attraction at a time but you can get another DAS return time as soon as your daughter has experienced the attraction. DAS can be used in addition to your daughter's Disney FastPass+ service selections.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
