Family with disabled dad speaking with cast member

    What documentation is needed to acquire a disability access service for a child?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Lauren ~

    That is an excellent question! As the Mom of a special needs child, I know planning ahead can make things run more smoothly once we reach the parks.

    You will not need any type of documentation to obtain 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. You can request DAS by stopping by Guest Relations at the first theme park you visit. Cast Members will ask you some questions so they can best accommodate your child's specific needs. DAS will be linked to your child's MagicBand or admission card. They will need to link everyone's MagicBand in your party as well so that you can all enter an attraction with your child.

    Once you obtain DAS for your child, 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 child's DAS 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. Your child can only obtain a DAS return time for one attraction at a time but can get another DAS return time as soon as they have enjoyed the attraction. DAS can be used in addition to your child's Disney FastPass+ service selections.

    I'm limited in space but please feel free to visit again with all your planning questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
