    Will they still be doing the disability ride passes, so you can have a return time?

    Hi, Lisa!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As the mom of a child with special needs, one of the reasons why my family returns to Walt Disney World Resort yEAR after yEAR is that they always go above and beyond to make the magic accessible to everyone.  My son is on the autism spectrum, and when we visit the Walt Disney World theme parks, we utilize Disability Access Service.  I'm happy to let you know that I recently called and spoke with a Cast Member in Disability Services.  I was told that Disability Access Service will still be available to Guests whose disabilities prevent them from waiting in a typical queue environment when the Walt Disney World theme parks reopen.

    Disability Access Service should operate in much the same manner as it always has, with one minor adjustment.  In the past, Guests using Disability Access Service would speak to a Cast Member at an attraction entrance and obtain a ride return time based on that attraction's current standby wait time.  When it was time for the Guest to return to the attraction, they would access the ride using the FastPass+ queue.  Since the FastPass+ system is temporarily suspended and the FastPass+ queues will be used to help with physical distancing when the theme parks reopen, Guests using Disability Access Service may need to report to a different location at their ride return time.  When you obtain your return time, just be sure to ask the Cast Member where you should enter when it's time for you to ride.

    Lisa, as you get ready for your upcoming vacation, I think this "Know Before You Go" page will be a great resource for you.  I would also recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the operational updates page on the Walt Disney World Resort website to hEAR all of the latest news about returning to a world of magic.  If you have any additional questions, please visit us again.

    See ya real soon!
