    My family and I travel to Disney frequently. Now that the DAS pass rules have changed, we will not be unable to go on the attractions with the rest of our group. How would it be possible for our group to stay to for attractions. Thank you.

    Hello Charlene!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're so glad you brought your question to us today and I'm happy to assist.

    Changes to the Disability Access Service (DAS) were recently announced and will go into effect on May 20, 2024. I know there is a lot of concern and speculation but rest assured that eligible guests will still be able to use the service as intended. Additionally, many other programs and offerings are in place to assist guests with a wide range of disabilities and concerns.

    As you mentioned, one of the biggest changes coming to DAS is party size. At present, an eligible guest may have up to 5 additional guests accompany them. When the changes go into effect, the total party size will be 4 guests- the registered DAS guest and three additional guests. I understand this might change the way your family experiences attractions together, but there may be alternative options in place for larger groups of immediate family members and/or Rider Switch, when applicable.  I'd recommend speaking with a member of the Disability Services Team during the registration process to discuss your needs. I can't guarantee they will be able to accommodate a larger group but they will have the most clear guidance for you as these changes roll out.

    As you prepare for another visit I'd like to share the latest Accessibility Planning Guide & Recommendations. I learned a lot of information by reading through the guide that I wasn't aware of previously. I hope some of the guidance will help your party have a more inclusive experience the next time you visit the parks.

    Charlene, we're all sure to learn more as these changes go into effect next month. Please feel free to come back to planDisney with additional questions and we'll be glad to address anything we can or direct you to the appropriate contact for further clarification.
