    Marcia Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My child has not been formally diagnosed for being on the autism spectrum, but she has a difficult time bearing with loud sounds and ocasional meltdowns, I am wondering if any kind of documentation is required for the DAS?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marcia, we’re so glad you’re here.

    I am thrilled to hear that you’re planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort with your precious daughter; I cannot express enough, how each Disney Vacation brings about remarkable developmental and social gains from my Autistic son.

    Walt Disney World Resort sincerely strives to afford all Guests an enjoyable and inclusive vacation with Services for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities, wherein you will find Disney’s Disability Access Service (DAS). This service is designed to accommodate Guests who are unable to wait in a conventional queue and enables them to obtain a return time for a desired attraction.

    Marcia, please visit any Theme Park Guest Relations with your entire travel party to discuss this service with a Cast Member for your daughter. You do not need a medical letter, rest assured and if deemed beneficial for your daughter, the Cast Member will take a digital image of your daughter and will then associate all in your travel party to your daughter’s (DAS) with valid MagicBands or Theme Park Ticket Cards. This service can be utilized with the FastPass+ service.

    Mom's Tip: For added comfort, you may wish to bring noise-cancelling headphones and visit any Baby Care Center to rest during your visit.

    Best Disney Wishes!
