    Hey Howdy Hey Susan and welcome to planDisney!

    I bet you all are so excited about your upcoming trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth in just a few short months! A vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort should be cherished with all friends and family and I am glad to hear you will be able to take advantage of Disability Access Service (DAS) to share the Magic with your family. Thank you for stopping by with questions on the details of DAS. I will be happy to give you more information to better prepare for your trip. 

    During your vacation, you can request a DAS return time right from your My Disney Experience app which should accommodate all members of your party so you all can experience the attractions at the same time. You have it right Susan that some attraction vehicles will only seat 2 Guests. In those instances, your ability for multiple family members to experience the attraction with your daughter will heavily depend on the Cast Member and how busy the attraction would be at the time you are riding.

    With DAS, Cast Members try their best to get all members of the party on at the same time so everyone has the experience together. This is typically reserved for only 1 experience before having to exit the attraction and re-enter. On occasion, if the attraction is not too busy and the DAS line is empty, asking a Cast Member to experience the attraction as you mentioned wouldn't hurt. There have been instances with low wait times where this may be allowed. Just know this may not be the expectation, just a bit of Magic here and there you may be able to experience!

    Susan, it sounds like you have a good understanding of DAS, I just wanted to review 2 quick reminders on the benefits. The first is when you can register. Eligible Guests can preregister for DAS online between 2 and 30 days from their date of arrival. This would be a quick video interview with a Cast Member and as long as you qualify, they will set you up for DAS Advanced Planning. This will give you the ability to book 2 return windows for attractions on each of the days you will visit the park before you arrive. You will also have the rolling 1 to book as well. As long as you are approved for DAS, you can book your rolling 1 DAS return time on the day of your visit through your My Disney Experience app. With all attractions throughout Walt Disney World, there is also a document available that reviews Attraction Access Categories. This should also help set expectations on when and if you would need to help your daughter transfer to a ride vehicle during your visit. 

    I hope this information was helpful as you continue to plan for your upcoming trip. Please feel free to reach back out with any further questions, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
