    We have a group of 12 going on a family trip to Disney including 2 kids with autism. I read that 6 people total can be on the DAS. We would like to stay together if possible so could each child have 6 guest on their pass to cover all 12 guests? Thanks!

    Hi Michael,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your family trip sounds like it is going to be such a great experience. I am so glad that you know about the Disability Access Service!  This is just one of the many Walt Disney World Resort's Services for Guests with Disabilities

    Although we have used this service in the past, I also called Guest Services to confirm my response with a Cast Member. Yes, currently, up to five additional guests can accompany the guest with the Disability Access Card onto a ride or attraction. Of course, park services can change, so please verify this information when you arrive to the parks and register your children with Disability Services. 

    When we used the Disability Access Service, the card was registered to my husband's MagicBand. We would approach a Cast Member at a ride or attraction, explain that we had Disability Access Service, and the Cast Member would give us a return time window. We used this service in addition to the regular Fast Pass+ service. Just remember that the guest with the Disability Access Service Card must board the ride for other family members to use the service. 

    Hopefully you have the Walt Disney World Resource Guide for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities Including Autism Spectrum Disorder. It may provide other information that can help maximize the magic for your family!

    Happy Planning.
