    We have a group of 8. One will have a DAS, but I know the limit is 6 people for DAS. How do we make sure we are able to plan/ride together?

    Hi Kate,

    Family and friend group trips to Walt Disney World are so much fun. There is nothing better than enjoying the magic of Disney with as many of your favorite people as possible. My family takes multi-generational and large friend group trips to Disney World often and it truly makes it extra special.

    We also utilize Disability Access Services (DAS) on our visits and it makes the trip so much easier to manage for our family members who cannot wait in lines. When you get DAS set up make sure to have them add all 7 additional planning party members as guests that may ride with your DAS-qualified guest. We have done this in the past and then just choose which 5 people want to ride along with that person each time. This is super convenient for thrill rides or attractions that not everyone in your party will want to ride. All you need to do is reserve a DAS return time with only the guest with DAS and 5 other members of your party selected to join them. When you add guests to a DAS party they will all need to be present and have their MagicBand+ or ticket scanned. This can be done at Guest Services or any of the blue umbrella areas denoting the Guest Experience Team.

    If the total group of 8 people you are traveling with is all immediate family, you can also visit Guest Services and request an exception to this rule. It will have to be approved by the manager on duty and is solely at their discretion. This is not done often and the only times I have heard of exceptions granted are for immediate family only.

    Another option is to utilize Genie+ in conjunction with DAS. You can simply purchase Genie+ for 2 members of your party and reserve rides for those party members to coincide with your DAS return time. All 8 of you will enter together through the Lightning Lane entrance and ride as a group.

    Happy Planning
