Disney is committed to provide the most welcoming and friendly environment to its visitors. And the DAS – Disability Access Service Card is a true example in this regard. The Disney Parks DAS Card is indeed a unique effort on part of the company to ensure that the world’s most magical experiences are accessible to visitors with special disabilities as well. DAS is available at all Disney Parks in Orlando and in Disneyland California.
However, not all visitors with disabilities can have DAS. Such as guests whose disability is based mainly on the necessity of using wheelchair or scooter will not apply for DAS. They will either wait with the regular visitors in the conventional queue or can facilitate with a return time comparable to the current wait time depending on the attraction they have.
The special program is exclusively made available to visitors who really need the service – guests who are really un-fit to handle the conventional queue owing to special disability that includes not-apparent disabilities as well. The program will allot a return time comparable to the current wait time to guests with such disabilities. And the same is valid until redeemed. Guests are eligible for one active return time at a time. One can have another for the same attraction or any other attraction for that matter only after the redemption of the first. DAS can be used with other Disney services as well such as Disney FastPass+ Program.
In order to apply for a DAS Card one must visit the nearest Guest Relations locations. If you are visiting Disney World Orlando you will register for DAS in any of the guest relations office at the Main Entrance locations – City Hall at Magic Kingdom, The Guest Relations lobby at Disney Animal Kingdom, The Guests Relations lobby at Disney Hollywood Studios, and The Guest Relations lobby at Epcot.
Guest will go through a registration process where a photo of the guest is taken, valid park tickets need to be presented for each member so as to electronically associate the same with DAS. Those with annual passes can obtain DAS up to 60 days. One cannot apply for DAS prior to his or her visit. Everything on this is done after arrival on site at Guest Relations. If you think that DAS doesn’t addresses your specific disability concerns, then Guest Relation staff are always ready to discuss special accommodations for special circumstances such as people whose disability limits their visit duration or limit the available attraction options.
