Overview of Disney World's Disability Access Service (DAS)

Inside This Post Inside This Post

Walt Disney World’s approach to assisting guests with disabilities ensures that every guest can enjoy a day at the parks. For families with one or more members needing accommodations, DAS at Disney World — Disability Access Service — can help make a trip comfortable and memorable for everyone. This comprehensive program is about more than just getting expedited access in lines; it is designed to ensure that every guest and family have a toadally amazing Disney experience. Today, we're covering the ins and outs of DAS at Disney World, including the new changes effective May 20, 2024.

DAS at Disney World - Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster

NEW DAS changes are in effect at Walt Disney World:

  • Walt Disney World has implemented an updated registration process for the Disability Access Service (DAS). The initial registration process must be completed through a live video chat — in-person registration is no longer available at Guest Relations in the theme parks.
  • Up to 30 days before your visit, you must talk with a cast member virtually to determine your eligibility. You do not need to provide documentation. You can also register on the day of your visit.
  • If eligible for DAS, the guest with a disability or a parent/guardian will need to participate in the registration process. This includes getting a photo taken of the guest registering for DAS.
  • You can have up to four people in your travel party, including the person registered for DAS (exceptions can be made for immediate family members).
  • DAS attraction return time selections can be made in the My Disney Experience app (or at Guest Relations) once in the parks, but not in advance.
  • DAS is valid for the length of your ticket or up to 120 days (whichever comes first) — after that, you will need to re-register.

What Is DAS?

Disney World's Disability Access Service (DAS) provides assistance for guests and families with disabilities to navigate more easily and enjoy the parks. It is intended to help guests who have difficulty waiting in line queues.

Instead of physically waiting in a queue, you receive a return time equal to the current standby wait time. You can spend the time anywhere in the park and then return to enjoy the ride. Then you'll enter through the Lightning Lane entrance for reduced wait time in a physical queue. (Looking for information on using Disability Access Service on the West Coast? Hop over to this post for the DAS details at Disneyland.)

DAS at Disney World - DAS Screen on MDE App

As a heads up, you may hear some people refer to it as a disability pass or DAS card. The “pass” or “card” portion of the name is leftover lingo from a time when guests were provided with a paper or plastic card to use in the program. Today, DAS is fully digital and integrated into your ticket or MagicBand, so no additional card or media is needed, and you can receive DAS return times through the My Disney Experience app.

Who Qualifies for Assistance from DAS?

DAS is determined and approved on a case-by-case basis during a video registration call with a cast member. It's intended for guests with non-apparent disabilities that could impact their park experience such as autism or similar. DAS covers both the impacted guest and those in their group (up to four people, including the DAS holder — exceptions may be made for immediate family members).

Wheelchair users can usually be accommodated at the point of entry in most rides, so if your only concern is about lines and boarding with a scooter or wheelchair, you may not need DAS. DAS is designed to support guests who have needs beyond using a wheelchair or limited mobility. If you’re worried about getting through the line queue or accessing a ride with a scooter, you can simply head to your chosen attraction. Cast members are well-trained and will be able to help you navigate!

How Do I Get DAS?

DAS at Disney World - Magic Kingdom City Hall

This is where most of the new changes come into play. As of May 20, 2024, all guests need to pre-register for DAS via live video chat up to 30 days before a park visit. In-person registration is no longer available. If eligible for DAS, the guest with a disability or a parent/guardian needs to participate in the registration process. This includes getting a photo taken of the guest registering for DAS. Note that DAS is still determined on a case-by-case basis. Documentation is not required. The live video chat is available from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST. Guests will need to have valid theme park tickets and a My Disney Experience account before initiating the video call.

The individual requesting DAS must be present during the video chat, even if it's a parent or guardian registering on their child's behalf. The video call is screen reader-friendly and available with text chat for those with visual or hearing impairments. It's super hopful to get the DAS registration out of the way in advance, but you can still register via live video chat on the day of your visit.

While you cannot initially register in person at the parks, you can still receive return times (once registered) at Guest Relations or Guest Experience Team kiosks throughout the parks. Here's where you can find Guest Relations at each park:

  • Magic Kingdom: A Guest Services location is outside of the park turnstiles on the right-hand side. Already inside Magic Kingdom? Head under the railroad tracks, then veer to the left. Guest Services is in City Hall, the first building you’ll see.
  • EPCOT: Before entering the park, head to the far right. Guest Services is located outside of the gates near the monorail entrance. If you are already inside EPCOT, there are Guest Relations locations near Spaceship Earth and near the International Gateway entrance.
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: There are two options, one inside and one outside of the park; both are near the park entrance on the left-hand side.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Once inside the park, head to the left; Guest Services is in the first building you’ll see as you enter the park.

DAS at Disney World - Magic Kingdom Guest Experience Cast Members

Frog Family Tip: Save time by locating a Guest Experience Team found in several locations around each park. You'll recognize these stations by looking out for the big blue umbrellas with the words "Guest Experience Team" and the park's icon printed on them. These cast members will be dressed in a royal blue shirt and black shorts or pants. The Guest Experience Team can help you book, adjust or cancel a return time if you don't have a smartphone to make return times on the app. In addition, the Guest Experience Team can help answer questions about attraction wait times, showtimes, directions and general questions about the Disney World parks.

The individual requesting DAS must be present when registering during the video call. Note that a photo will be taken. Make sure everyone in your party is linked in My Disney Experience so everyone can be included in DAS plans. (No modifications can be made once you're in the parks.)

Once registered, DAS is valid for the length of your ticket or up to 120 days, whichever comes first. After that window, you will need to re-register.

What Documentation Is Needed for DAS?

DAS at Disney World - Guest Experience Team member at Tron Entrance

You do not need to have a doctor’s note or even reveal the details about you or the individual's disabilities. You do need to describe the accommodations needed to fully enjoy the park. The more details you provide about your needs, the better DAS will work for you. This is a custom program that will be tailored to meet your specific situation. Your stated needs can range from the need for a quiet area to wait in lieu of standing in line, a pass to bring a stroller right to the loading area of a ride or other specific needs your family may have.

How Do I Use DAS at Disney World?

A helpful feature allows registered DAS guests and their party members to make return time selections right in the My Disney Experience app. Once tapped into the park, a DAS button will appear in the app. You can access it by clicking on the bottom three lines and scrolling down the menu. Anyone in the party can make the selections for everyone, but the guest with DAS must be present when the return time is redeemed and tap into the ride queue first before anyone else in the travel party. Guests can still visit the attraction, Guest Relations or a Guest Experience Team umbrella to receive return times.

DAS at Disney World - App View

Return times are day-of selections and are available once you are tapped into the park. When chosen, they reflect the current standby wait. If Peter Pan's Flight is a 50-minute wait, your return time for that attraction would be in 50 minutes. Once the return time starts, it can be used at any time until park close. You can only hold one return time at a time. After using a return time, there's a 10-minute wait time until you can make your next return time selection.

Return times are not able to be booked during Early Theme Park Entry. If park hopping, selections will become available once you tap into that park. If a posted wait time is 15 minutes or less, guests using DAS and their party are typically given immediate access to the Lightning Lane entrance.

Using the My Disney Experience app to make selections allows for less walking to attractions or Guest Relations to get return times. We are so glad the service is now integrated into the app so all of the planning is in one place!

What Disney World Attractions Accept DAS?

DAS at Disney World - Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Magic Kingdom

Every attraction in Disney World can accommodate the needs of guests with disabilities; you can hop on over to our full list of Disability Access for Disney World Attractions to get the scoop on each individual ride. Note that the person holding DAS must meet the height requirements of the ride.

How Does DAS Work with Disney Genie?

You do not need to purchase Genie+ or individual selections to utilize DAS. Any ride with a standby wait time is eligible for DAS return times. For attractions using virtual queues (currently Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Tron Lightcycle / Run — Tiana's Bayou Adventure will operate with a virtual queue beginning June 28, 2024), all members must have joined the virtual queue first. Once your boarding group is called, cast members will direct you on using DAS.

All attractions still offer return times with DAS. Unlike Disney Genie+, which currently only allows a ride to be selected once per day, there is no limit to DAS return times for the same attraction (except for attractions that use a virtual queue — you may only join the virtual queue once a day for a particular ride).

You can also combine DAS and Genie+ or individual Lighting Lane selections to truly maximize your day! If you purchase Genie+, you can make Genie+ selections along with your DAS return times. You can also purchase individual Lightning Lanes and select an arrival window. All of these options utilize the Lightning Lane entrances. While DAS return times require you to wait the full standby time, Genie+ selections can be made for the next available time window and can be used right away. Purchasing Genie+ is not necessary when utilizing DAS, but there may be days when using both is helpful, such as peak holiday times.

DAS at Disney World - Stroller Tag

DAS Stroller Tags

Guest Relations can provide you with an oversized red sticker for your stroller that allows you to bring a stroller directly to the loading area. Attractions such as Kilimanjaro Safaris require strollers to be parked at specific points in the line. If you have this pass, your child can stay in the stroller until the loading area is reached. There are a few exceptions to the policy, as sometimes guests with a DAS stroller tag may not be able to enter areas that the stroller can’t safely navigate.

Still Have Questions? Here Are Our Frogtastic FAQs!

Got questions? We're all ears! (Yes, frogs have ears.) Here are some of the questions we get most often. Don't see your question here? Drop us a comment and we'll be hoppy to help!

Pre-Registering for DAS

Am I eligible for DAS?

DAS is assigned on a case-by-case basis by Disney World Guest Relations. You can learn more during the pre-registration DAS call.

What if I’m afraid that Disney World's DAS will not accommodate my needs?

Disney works with guests individually in order to accommodate their specific requests and provides assistance for a variety of needs and disabilities. Oftentimes, accommodations will be made at individual attractions if the system is not working at all. If you have any concerns, tell a cast member and they will find a way to work with you!

Does every member of my party need to be present when DAS is obtained?

No, the Guest Relations cast member will speak with the guest (or guardian) for whom DAS will be issued. As of May 20, 2024, in-person registration is no longer available. All guests must register via live video chat. The DAS user and a parent/guardian must both participate in the registration process.

What else do I need to have prepared for the call?

No documentation is necessary when registering for DAS. You'll want your DAS party linked in the My Family and Friends section of My Disney Experience. No modifications can be made in person at the parks.

What if I need to modify my party?

If you find that you need to modify your party between your initial call and your park visit, pop back into the virtual chat for help.

What if I am an international guest?

International guests can register in advance as soon as they can access the U.S. Walt Disney World website. Registration is available up to 30 days before your visit and even on the day of your park visit.

Is the call only available in English?

At this time, yes. However, there is a chat feature before joining the virtual meeting where guests can indicate if they don’t speak English. Reasonable effort will be made to accommodate those guests.

How many guests in one party can be covered under Disney World DAS?

The maximum is four guests per DAS. This includes the person registered for DAS. If you have special circumstances or any concerns, talk to Guest Relations. Exceptions can be made for immediate family members.

Once I have registered and received DAS at Disney World, what’s next?

Time to have fun! You can start booking return times on the app once you are in the park. Go to that attraction during the allotted time and enjoy! Return times are valid until redeemed prior to park closing. Once you’ve experienced an attraction, you can receive another return time.

Using DAS in the Parks

Where do I receive more return times for attractions?

You can book return times on the My Disney Experience app or in person at the attraction or Guest Relations. You can choose another return time for the same attraction or a different one 10 minutes after using the initial return time. Another member of your party can obtain a return time, but the guest with DAS must enter the attraction first before the other party members.

Do the guests with DAS have to board the attraction with the rest of the party?

Yes, the guest with the DAS must enter the attraction. The DAS user does not need to be present when obtaining a return time, though.

Do I have to get a new DAS at the start of each day?

No. As of May 20, 2024, DAS is valid for the length of your ticket or 120 days, whichever is shorter.

How many reservations can I have?

You can only have one active return time at once. The return time will appear as part of your plans in the My Disney Experience app.

Can I cancel a reservation? For example, I grab a reservation for Haunted Mansion but then decide I want to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at that time.

Yes! Return times can now be modified or canceled in the My Disney Experience app. Anyone in the party may modify the reservation, but the guest with DAS must enter the attraction.

Can I use DAS for fireworks and parades?

There are no specific reserved areas for guests using DAS. If you plan it right, it can really work out to your advantage! Guests using DAS with concerns should visit Guest Relations to see what accommodations can be made for fireworks/parade viewing. There are special viewing areas on parade routes and some shows for guests with disabilities. However, those cannot be reserved and are on a first-come, first-served basis.

Do I have to pay to use DAS on individual attraction selections (including individual Lightning Lane selections)?

DAS does not require any additional purchase with the Disney Genie+ system. Any attraction with a standby queue can issue DAS return times.

What about rides with virtual queues?

Rides with virtual queues — such as Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Tron Lightcycle / Run and Tiana's Bayou Adventure (opening June 28, 2024) require that all members of your party join the virtual queue first. Once your boarding group is called, talk with cast members at the entrance about using DAS.

What happens if I didn't register in advance?

This may change, but on day one of these new DAS changes, Guest Relations at Magic Kingdom supplied a QR code that will connect guests to the virtual chat. Guests were then welcome to use the quiet lobby next door at the Chamber of Commerce building to connect to the call.

What if I need help with my return times while I'm in the park?

You can still make or change return times at Guest Relations and at the blue umbrellas.

How do I renew DAS?

You'll follow the same process when you're ready to renew — just share that you'd like to renew in the virtual chat.

Will I get a reminder to renew when DAS expires?

There isn’t a reminder sent to renew — so be sure to mark your calendar!

We hope this overview of Disney World's Disability Access Service answers your questions about the new program. If you've used DAS, we'd love to hear your thoughts about it. Share them in the comments below!

Do you know if It is possible to get DAS for a child under 3? As she won’t have her own ticket, just wondering if it is still an option?

Hi Gemma!

Yes, a child under three years old can still receive a DAS pass. Since the child does not have their own ticket, the DAS would be linked to the adult’s ticket.

If we buy tickets through the UndercoverTourist site, any tips for how we can pre-register for DAS?

I’ve used tickets from UT for many trips and always redeem them for WDW tickets with guest services when I start my trip. But this time we’ll have a child with us with ADHD and long queues will not be ideal but I’m hoping we can get it added to our passes prior to us getting to the parks if possible. Thanks! ♥️

Hey, my 2 middle children 11 and 7 have fabry disease (there dad passed away from it 2017) Fabry disease is a metabolic generic disease, it affects renal including heart and kidneys. They cannot sweat or regulate their temperature. We went to disney in 2018 and my then 3 year old suffered really bad with heat stroke and went to the emergency room and was on antibiotics last time we came to orlando. I am really worried this may happen again. Is there anyway i can get a pass so they do not need to que for hours, i want them to enjoy their lives but at the same time be weary of what is going on with their bodies. Thank you in advance Casey.

Hi Casey!

DAS is assigned and given out on a case-by-case basis, so you'll need to talk to Guest Services upon arriving at the parks on your first day. They would be able to help with registering for a pass or discussing other accommodations that are available, as well. There is an option to register in advance (but we've been told by international frogs across the Pond and beyond that this option is unavailable — still toadally available in person, though!).

Hello there

We will be travelling in august this year, both myself and my husband have mobility issues and my two children are autistic. Could you give me some advice or a link to book DAS, will we need 4 separate passes and does this include free car parking.

FrogBlog Says...

Hi Sue!

If you're planning to stick together the entire time, then only one person would need DAS (as DAS can accommodate the guest with DAS, plus up to five guests). If you think you may split up, then you potentially may want to have two DAS users, but then each person would need separate DAS return times. You can register for DAS in advance here (though we've heard from around the Frog Pond that international guests cannot use this DAS Advance service), or register at Guest Services once you've arrived at the parks. DAS does not include free parking.

Hoppy planning!

Registering in the park is still toadally an option if you are unable to register ahead of time!

Hi, I have 2 autistic children and will be applying for DAS later this year. We are 2 families travelling together so more than 6 but park tickets are split between the 2 families. How does the access to the rides work for DAS? I understand the virtual waiting but getting on the rides, is it only the 6 registered that can accompany my children? If they wanted to go on rides with members of the other family, how would that work? Or would it not be possible? Or would I need to link one of my children's tickets to their family in MDE?

Hi Emma!

The two kids would need to be separate (can’t be listed as a guest of the other kid) and each would need their own return times. As for the guests, if everyone’s connected to both children, then you can select the people who are accompanying each DAS holder. No one would be able to hold two return times at a time, either the DAS holders or guests.

Hello! I registered for the DAS pass for my son today. We are traveling in from the West Coast and have a group of 10. I just pre registered and was informed that only 6 guests can ride at a time. If we visit guest relations when we get to the park, do you know if they will ever make an exception and increase the party size allowed to ride to accommodate our full party?

Hi Corina!

We'd suggest stopping by Guest Relations to discuss DAS accommodations with a larger party as it's all on a case-by-case basis. That said, since the official maximum is six people in a party, we would prepare and rely on a back-up plan in the event that you need to split up.

I tried repeatedly to book DAS for my son from here in the UK. Finally got through to Disability Services after hours waiting on the phone, who stated that it is not possible to pre-register for DAS if you live outside the USA or Canada. I’m told I must register on the day. I must queue with my son (who needs DAS because he can’t queue!!) at Guest Services on my first day.

Not very equitable is it? Puts my son at a distinct disadvantage. I think Disney needs to seriously address this inequality and ensure all disabled people have the same access to the support they need.

I love how thorough this guide is! Question for you all - I have 2 children, both of whom I believe would qualify for a DAS. We plan to split up a bit on our park days, and have a group of 7 people total. Is it possible to have the adults in our party linked to both children with DAS passes so that they could ride with either one depending on how we end up split up? Thanks in advance!

I found out about DAS after almost having a panic attack on the waiting line for Space Mountain while at Magic Kingdom. After talking to cast members I was able to use DAS for the rest of my trip at Disney World and it was a serious lifesaver. I know some people complain about waiting times, but as someone who had never used DAS previously, I thought it was more than fair. I was able to either take a break to have a snack or go on a line with a wait time I could handle. In all I had the best experience at Epcot and Animal Kingdom, thanks to the pass. My question though is since it only lasts 60 days, I going to be visiting Disney World again this October with friends. Will they have record that I used DAS in the past, to make registering online easier since I will already be in the system.

Hi Haylee!

Yes, you would need to reapply. Generally, Guest Services does not keep records and policies could change, so it's not guaranteed. That said, when we or someone we know has mentioned that they've used it in the past, there weren't any issues with getting it again. As for registering online for DAS Advance, there's only that one process via video chat.

Hi Katelynn!

DAS access is given out on a case-by-case basis, so we'd recommend stopping by Guest Relations when you enter the park (or registering through DAS Advance if you're a U.S. resident) to see what accommodation options are available for you.

Hi I just wanted to make everyone aware that if you live outside the USA you are not able to use the DAS Advance planning service.

We will be arriving in the USA two day before our tickets start. Do you think we will be able to call on arrival to register for DAS?

Hi Elaine!

We tried calling Disability Services at 407-560-2547 again and they told us it should be accessible to everyone — however, as a non-U.S. citizen, you are not the only one to have an issue with this. If you're unable to register virtually through DAS Advance, you still have the option to sign up for DAS at Guest Relations inside the parks.

We have been told by guest services that DAS Advance is available to anyone (though at this time, the live chat is only available in English). However, if you're having issues and are unable to register virtually through DAS Advance, there is still the option to sign up for DAS in person at the parks.

Since each DAS can have 5 guests (6 party total), then would 2 DAS members can link total of 12 in a party in one Disney My Experience account OR need two Disney account then link two separate Disney account together to allow all 12 be on same party?

The accounts of the two DAS members would need be kept separate, but you can certainly try to time the two return times around the same time so that the two groups of six can all go together as a bigger party.

I registered for DAS and got accepted. I was asked to choose 2 rides as an advanced DAS planning option. I registered for 2 rides, one is for 1:30 and the other is for 5:00 - those were the only times available. My question is: It's very confusing... when I enter the gates of EPCOT, will I be able to register for additional rides on DAS, through the app, or can I not register because I already have 2 rides/time slots scheduled? In other words, can we have more than 2 time slots reserved on DAS? I have been looking for the answer but getting conflicting results. I know that you can help me. THANK YOU in advance!

You would need to live chat with a cast member (via Disney World's website) who can set you up with your DAS Advance Selections, which must be made between 2 and 30 days prior to your visit. Otherwise, you can wait until you're in the park to get same-day DAS return times.

I just got my child (who was recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders) signed up for the DAS program, and I am so very grateful. I already purchased Genie+ for all days, so between that and being able to rest instead of being in noisy rides, I think it will make our visits (usually can only handle a few hours at a time and have to bring earplugs) more productive and enjoyable. I know there are baby care centers, but do you have recommendations for quiet places to go in the park if you have a kiddo who needs a sensory break? Thanks!

Hi Lindsay!

We absolutely do! Here are some of our favorite quieter spots in the parks, which could work as a sensory break for your tadpole:

Magic Kingdom: Liberty Square (behind the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe), the walkway in Frontierland that lines the water (if water noise isn't too much)

EPCOT: the EPCOT Experience building (which is also close to the baby center), Morocco pavilion (especially in the back), Canada pavilion in front of Victoria Gardens or by the waterfall (if water noise isn't too much), U.K. pavilion gardens (as long as there isn't a band playing)

Animal Kingdom: any of the animal trails, especially Discovery Island trails and the short Cretaceous Trail by DINOSAUR

Hollywood Studios: Animation Courtyard, Echo Lake and just inside the Toy Story Land entrance by Galaxy's Edge (there is some foot traffic, but if you move off to the side, it's fairly quiet)

I've heard that it's super hard because the chat lines are swamped. Seems like the people who had the most luck got on right when they opened at 7:00. Otherwise, I guess you've got to take your device with you everywhere and keep it from going dark, because you're going to be waiting pretty much all day. Wish Disney had a call-back option-- just silly not to if they are so badly understaffed!

Hi. As an annual passholder, how long is the Das good for? I read your blog and Disney's information about it, but it's worded weird. Both say good for up to 60 days.

Does that mean that I get it and have 60 days to use it? Or. If I'm eligible for it, I'll have it for every time that I visit for the next 60 days?

Hi Katie!

Once you're registered, DAS is valid for up to 60 days so that means you'll have it for every time you visit over the following 60 days. After 60 days, you'll need to register again.

Hi Brenda!

While DAS is designed for those who have needs beyond limited mobility, Disney's official stance is: "A guest whose disability is based on the necessity to use a wheelchair or scooter does not need DAS. Depending on the experience, guests utilizing a wheelchair or scooter will either wait in the standard queue or receive a return time at the attraction that is comparable to the current standby wait."

Is the new Genie + the same as a DAS pass? They sound very similar. Disney Genie + is $15 more per person per day. Can Genie + be used to reserve more than one ride at a time and can a DAS pass and Genie + be used together?

Reply
Oct 26, 2021 at 8:20 a.m.
FrogBlog Says...

Hi Carrie!

DAS and Genie+ are different systems, but they can be used together! You can only make one Genie+ selection at a time, but you can have overlapping Genie+ selections. There is a two-hour window before you can make another selection. Because you can only choose the next available time window, the window can start as soon as five minutes later or hours away, depending on the ride and crowds. At noon, for instance, you might find that the next time window is at 7 p.m. To avoid being tethered to only one ride for seven hours, your ability to make Genie+ selections is "frozen" for two hours. So, at 2 p.m., you could make another Genie+ selection, despite not going on the 7 p.m. ride yet. At 4 p.m., you could make an additional selection, and so on. We hope this helps!

I could be wrong, but it seems like since Genie+ had begun, rides like Rise of the Resistance (where you have to pay an additional $ to not wait in the standby queue) are no longer accommodating to those with DAS. Money over equality I guess.

DAS is still available for the high-demand rides, such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure.

Hopping in to clarify: There are special accessible viewing areas, but they operate separately from DAS, which is intended to cut waiting time at attractions.

It depends on the length of your ticket. If you have a Magic Key pass, you can renew every 60 days. If you have a regular ticket, it is good for the length of your ticket. Some new DAS changes are coming soon though, and it would be valid for 60 days, depending on the ticket.

Everybody will need to be listed on the DAS card. Since DAS eligibility runs on a case-by-case basis, it doesn't hurt to ask Guest Relations if there can be an exception, particularly if you'd meet the maximum number of people without the tadpoles and it'd accommodate your party. However, it's up to their discretion, and there is no guarantee that everyone can be included.

I just found out about the DAS and it sounds like a lifesaver. Regardless whether I'm standing or sitting, I am prone to overheating in directly sunlight because I have hyperhidrosis, or the inability to produce sweat. It causes low blood pressure and collapsing, but being able to walk around and have access to guaranteed shade extremely helps. The social distancing guidelines mean rides that otherwise wouldn't be in the sun for so long are now so. Since this isn't a matter of sitting or standing, but needing the ability to stay moving to keep my blood circulation up, hopefully they issue me one. Fingers crossed!

You're correct — the DAS card is only applicable for attractions.

For Skyliner specifically, there is a separate queue for anyone who needs extra time during loading — a gondola would stop off to the side so the other gondolas can keep moving.

Hi Sharlie!

Disney parades and shows almost always have a special needs section right up front, but these are available on a first come, first served basis. The best way to secure your front row spot at a parade is to get there early and take a seat. Shows offer more flexibility, and if you let the cast member at the door know you have a child with low vision, they will likely be able to accommodate you, even if you have to come back for the next show. You can learn more about seating for disabilities at shows and parades here.
