    Hi Teryl ~

    It makes my heart so happy that you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for your son's Make-A-Wish trip. It's so wonderful not to worry about doctor visits or therapies and just focus on being a family for a few days.

    The Disability Access Service (DAS) process does not affect those who are visiting on trips organized by wish-granting organizations. It's handled differently for those kids. Reach out to Make-A-Wish and they should assist you with securing access to attractions for your son. If you're staying at the Give Kids The World Village during your visit, they can also assist you.

    If you plan on extending your stay beyond the days of your Make-A-Wish trip, you will likely need to visit Guest Services to request DAS for those additional days. Cast Members will ask you some questions so that they can best accommodate your son's specific needs. You won't be required to provide any type of supporting documentation. Here is a link with details explaining how DAS works.

    If you're staying beyond your Make-A-Wish dates and want to make Disney FastPass+ selections for those dates, you will need to first link your theme park admission tickets to your My Disney Experience. Once you have done that, you can make your FastPass+ selections. You can use DAS in addition to FastPass+. Again, this is only for any additional days. Make-A-Wish should assist you for the dates during your trip through their organization.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all your planning questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
