    My family will be traveling to WDW MK on December 21, 2014. We are traveling with a disabled individual who really wants to meet Elsa and Anna. What do you recommend to be the best plan to make this happen?

    Hi Elena ~

    Disney FastPass+ service (FP+) is a great way to ensure that you get to do some of your favorite attractions or meet some of your favorite characters with a reduced wait time. Guests who are staying on property and have linked their hotel reservations and theme park admission tickets to their My Disney Experience can make FP+ selections 60 days in advance. If you are not staying at a Disney Resort Hotel but have linked your theme park tickets, you can make your FP+ selections 30 days in advance.

    If you are unable to get a FP+, I would be at the gates of the Magic Kingdom (MK) and ready to go when it opens. The online calendar for December 21, 2014 shows MK has morning Extra Magic Hours (EMHs) from 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. and the park opens to all Guests at 9:00 a.m. If you are staying at a Disney World Resort Hotel, you can take advantage of EMHs. Head straight to Princess Fairytale Hall as soon as possible.

    Because you are traveling with a person with disabilities, visit Guest Relations to request a Disability Access Service Card (DAS). It is designed to assist Guests who are unable to wait in a regular queue for a number of medical reasons. Here are some details explaining how to obtain a DAS and how it works in the parks. You can also find some additional information in this list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS.

    I'm limited in space but please feel free to visit us again with any other questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
