    Hi! My 7-year-old daughter is autistic & we're hoping to get a DAS card for her when we visit next month. Am I correct in thinking we can use it to get a return time at any attraction / character meet that accepts Fast Passes? Even Anna & Elsa? Tha

    Hi Tish ~

    You should not have any problems getting a Disability Service Access Card (DAS) for your daughter. You can request a DAS for your daughter by going to Guest Relations at any of the theme parks. Cast Members (CMs) will ask you some questions so they can best accommodate her specific needs. You will not be required to provide any type of supporting documentation to the CMs when requesting the DAS.

    CMs at attractions will fill in the information on the DAS indicating the return time which is determined by taking the current wait time and subtracting 10 minutes. Your daughter will not need to be present to get a return time for attractions but she must be present when entering the queue and boarding the attraction. Once the return time on the DAS is reached, the Guest with the DAS and their party can go to the attraction  or meet and greet location anytime afterwards - there is no pressure to make it back within a certain time frame. Guests can only obtain a return time for one attraction at a time but can get another DAS return time as soon as they've finished one.

    You should be able to get a DAS return time for any attractions or character meet and greet locations (including Anna and Elsa) that offer Disney FastPass+ service (FP)+. I would encourage you to use FP+ in addition to her DAS return times. This will help you cover more ground with less wait time.

    Keep in mind that the wait times for Anna and Elsa can get very long, very fast. Since you are only able to get one DAS return time at a time, you may want to head to Princess Fairytale Hall to get a DAS return time as soon as you arrive. If it is a long wait, that means you'll have a longer DAS return time and you will have a lot of time before you are able to get another one.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
