Kilimanjaro Safari vehicle

    Traci from NC Asked

    I have a pacemaker/icd implant and wanted to know if I get the DAS pass if it would stop me from riding rides with the heart warning on them? I’m not a thrill seeker at all. I saw kilimanjaro’s safari has a heart warning and that is my favorite attraction

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Traci!

    You had me at Kilimanjaro Safaris. I just love boarding that safari vehicle and exploring the Harambe Wildlife Reserve, and no matter how many times head out on our adventure, I feel like I learn something new every time. It’s just wonderful.

    Disability Access Service is intended to support Guests who may not be able to tolerate waiting in long lines due to a disability or medical condition. You’ll stop by any Guest Relations location and speak to a Cast Member about your needs, and they will work with you to determine the best way to ensure you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort, which may include Disability Access Service, along with other resources and information.

    The decision about whether to ride an attraction is one you’ll make in consultation with your doctor. I spoke to a Cast Member, who shared that Disney’s Cast Members can advise you of the medical risks associated with a specific attraction, but using Disability Access Service should not prohibit you from boarding any attraction unless there are safety concerns connected to the ride’s operation. You and your doctor are best equipped to make your health decisions, and Disability Access Service is a tool to support your health while on your vacation.

    On each attraction’s web page, you’ll see Safety, Accessibility, and Guest Policies posted; this is where you’ll see any health and safety warnings. Additionally, you may filter Walt Disney World Resort’s attractions by Accessibility & Advisories. It might also be helpful to read over the Radio Frequency technology information, as the Radio Frequency technology in MagicBands may interfere with an implanted pacemaker. These resources can help you and your doctor plan your visit with your health in mind.

    Traci, I hope you have the most amazing visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, that you’re able to visit the hippos, giraffes, and flamingos with ease, and that you’re in great health throughout your vacation. Please come back and see us if we can help with any more questions as you do your planning and Disney dreaming.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Robyn
