    My children and I are travelling from Canada and are really looking forward to visiting Galaxy's Edge. My son lives with autism and has difficulty navigating crowds and managing wait times. Does the DAS work for Rise of the resistance?

    Greetings, Haidee, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I sense the Force is quite strong with you and your upcoming visit to a galaxy far, far away! I can’t wait for you and your family to begin your journey!

    I recently checked with a Cast Member in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and was told that Disability Access Service (DAS) is available with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Here’s how it works: First, you’ll still need to nab a Boarding Group on the Disneyland app or at an in-park distribution point at park opening. Once you have your Boarding Group, you can go about your day while waiting for it to be called. While you’re waiting, you’ll want to make sure your son is set up for DAS by visiting one of the Guest Relations locations in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. As soon as your Boarding Group is called, you’ll need to head to the Guest Relations booth at the entrance to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (the location nearest to Droid Depot) where your tickets can be scanned for DAS. Then, you’ll be told when to return to what will become the FASTPASS queue of the attraction in order to bypass the traditional wait queue. DAS will bring your family to the start of the attraction experience, where you’ll begin your training briefing as the newest Resistance recruits. 

    If you plan on experiencing any other activities in Black Spire Outpost, I recommend making reservations online ahead of time. My 8-year-old son loved building a custom astromech droid unit at Droid Depot, and a custom lightsaber at Savi’s Workshop: Handbuilt Lightsabers recently! 

    To help your son avoid waiting in line upon arrival at the Disneyland Resort, I recommend purchasing your tickets online ahead of time. Also, it would be helpful to add Disney MaxPass to your tickets, since you can use MaxPass in conjunction with DAS.

    Before your magical adventures begin, you’ll also want to download the Disneyland app. It’s my favorite handy helper in the parks for checking wait times, finding Characters, and even mobile ordering food and drinks – another way to eliminate waiting in line with your son! 

    Please don’t hesitate to stop by with any additional questions, Haidee… I’m all EARs!

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
