    How does the handicap pass work in Disneyland? Do I have to go through the stand-by line, fast pass line, or do I go through the ride's exit?

    Hi Annette,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It looks like you are planning to visit the Happiest Place on EARth during the Most Wonderful Time of the yEAR! You will find Disneyland Resort resplendent in its holiday finery, and there is a stocking-full of treats, unique attractions, and more to help you savor Christmas!

    Disneyland Resort is committed to providing all of its Guests a magical experience, regardless of ability. Whether you require cognitive, motor, hearing help, or more, there is a way for you to enjoy the Parks! There are two Guides that I think would be super helpful for you. Here is the Disneyland Park Guide for Guests with Disabilities, as well as the Disney California Adventure Park Guide. These guides map out amenities, services, and rules for Guests with special needs, as well as info on accessibility. 

    I think you are referring to using the Disability Access Service (DAS) card during your visit. DAS is a fantastic service that is available for those Guests who have difficulty waiting in a standard queue. You go to your desired attraction, receive a designated return time, and then bypass the regular line when you return. Which path you enter depends on the attraction and your mobility. yEARs ago, I used a wheelchair while at Disneyland Resort on a High School Choir trip. Because I needed to transfer directly from the wheelchair to the ride, more often than not, I was escorted through a separate accessible entrance. But, if the queue was wide enough to accommodate the wheelchair, we used that. Most of the time, with DAS, you will use the FASTPASS line.

    Speaking of FASTPASS, I encourage you to add Disney MaxPass to your ticket! You can use it with DAS, and it will help your day run so smoothly. You can choose your FASTPASS selections on the go via the Disneyland App, which will help to reduce transit time, and save up energy for all.the.fun.things! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back. I wish you a Very Merry Visit!
