    I'm a disabled veteran who uses DAS. Our next trip will be our first visit with an infant. Can we utilize DAS and Rider Switch at the same time (just 2 adults and 1 infant) by waiting together like DAS, but ride alone and swap tending to the kiddo?

    Hi Kathryn, and welcome to planDisney.

    First and foremost, on behalf of my own military family and my fellow panelists, thank you for your service and sacrifice. In my opinion, there is no better place for military families to go for together time and magical R&R, and I'm so happy to hear your family will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this fall. You're going to make so many memories together!

    It's my understanding that you will be able to make use of both Disability Access Service (DAS) and Rider Switch during your visit. Because they have different functions - one is to assist Guests with disabilities to make wait times more manageable, and the other is to allow Guests with non-riders to enjoy attractions - they can work in tandem. The only thing to note is that when using DAS and Rider Switch together, the non-rider cannot be the primary DAS Cardholder. 

    Here's what you will do: when you arrive, stop by Guest Relations to request Disability Access Service for yourself and your party. My friend Clara walks through the DAS process in this helpful answer. Once you have your Disability Access Service Card, you will be able to approach a Cast Member at the entrance to an attraction, present your DAS Card and explain that you would also like to use Rider Switch. They will explain your next steps and assist you with a return time as well as how to make Rider Switch work for that attraction (operations can vary). Then you should be all set!

    Kathryn, the Services for Guests with Disabilities webpage has lots of great information to help you ensure your visit is comfortable and fun. I also want to be sure you're aware that there are Baby Care Centers in each theme park. These are great spots for some quiet time with your Mouseketeer, where you can take care of feeding, changing, or just enjoying some peace and calm. They even sell baby supplies.

    I hope you have the most wonderful time with your family! Your friends here at planDisney are delighted to help if you have any more questions as you make your plans and count down the days. From strollers to packing to the best spots for photos, we have you covered! Have so much fun with your Disney dreaming, and the best visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
