    Do you still wait in line for long periods of time when you are using Fastpass+ or is it similar to old fastpass lines?Also,w/GAC do you still wait on same Fastpass+ lines?Want to plan accordingly for DS w/foot issues&know things are different than las

    Hi Diana ~

    There have been a lot of changes at Disney World over the past year. In my experience, the lines when using Disney FastPass+ service (FP+) are similar to the lines under the old FASTPASS system. The major change is how to make your FP+ selections and using your MagicBand or card to enter the FP+ lines. There are also more attractions, parades, and fireworks that offer FP+ than there were under the old FASTPASS system. There have been times I have seen the FP+ lines pretty backed up. In those cases, we walked around a few minutes and went back. Just make sure you do not miss your return time window.

    The Guest Assistance Card (GAC) has now been replaced by the Disability Access Service Card (DAS). You can request a DAS by going to Guest Relations at any of the theme parks. A Cast Member will ask you some questions so they can best accommodate your son's specific needs. They will then take a photo of your son, go over the terms and conditions, and have you sign the card.

    You will use the FP+ Return queues for your FP+ selections and for your DAS return times. You do not have to show your son's DAS to enter the lines for your FP+ selections.

    Here is some additional information regarding the details of how the DAS works.

    I've also included a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS .
