    Good Evening, I have PTSD and Anxiety from my deployment. I have used DAS in the past and it was greatly helpful with my condition. Now with the new version of DAS being implemented, I am only seeing Autism mentioned. Will I no be approved?

    Hello, Jerry. Welcome to planDisney! We genuinely appreciate your decision to entrust us with your vacation planning and are committed to ensuring that your experience is nothing short of extraordinary. Whether you’re looking for tips on navigating the parks, recommendations for dining experiences, or advice on making the most of your time at The Most Magical Place On Earth, our planDisney team is here to help every step of the way.

    I also want to thank you for your service to our country. Your dedication and sacrifices have not gone unnoticed, and we are honored to have you as a part of our community!

    As you mentioned, the Disability Access Service (DAS) is undergoing some changes. I understand that changes to DAS may be concerning, especially for those who no longer qualify under the new criteria. At this time, not all information regarding changes to the DAS program and how they will affect Guests with certain conditions is available. I recommend you continue to check the Walt Disney World website and Disney Parks Blog or revisit planDisney for updates as more details are released. 

    It's important to note that Disney has also revamped their Accessibility Services and Accessibility Guide. Even if you no longer qualify for DAS, other tools or options may be available to ensure that your Walt Disney World Resort visit is enjoyable and accessible. I encourage you to explore these resources and contact Disability Services by phone for more assistance.

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions or need assistance with your vacation planning!
