    I understand that we can get a "DAS" or "GAC" ID at guest services for our group because my two sons have ADHD/Aspergers but do I need to provide documentation of their disability from the school psychologist or doctor? We leave on Sun

    Hey Howdy Hey Michael,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm very excited for your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth with your family. I have a special needs son and I recommend a link on the Disney Parks website called Cognitive Disabilities that I find helpful as well.

    The Disability Access Service (DAS) Card is designed to accommodate Guests who aren't able to wait in a conventional queue environment due to disability (including non-apparent disabilities). You visit the main entrance Guest Relations to discuss your children's special needs and concerns with the Cast Member to see if the DAS Card would benefit your children's needs. Their photo will be taken for the issued card. You will not need to provide any paperwork to the Cast Member in order to receive a DAS Card. The Cast Member will go over the terms and conditions with you and have you sign the DAS card.

    With the Disability Access Service Card, you will go to an attraction you wish to ride, see a Cast Member at the entrance to get a return time to enter the FastPass (FP) or alternate entrance if directed. The Cast Member will fill the information in on your DAS card with your return time. The DAS card is not the same as a FP in that there is not a window return time so there isn't pressure to make it back in a certain period. You can only access one DAS card return time for one attraction at a time. While waiting for your DAS return time, you are welcome to grab a magical snack, enjoy a show, or watch a parade.

    If you have any more questions, please write us back on how we can help you plan your pixie-dusted vacation. I hope you have a pixie-dusted time.

    Best wishes for a magical trip!
