    I'm planning to attend Disneyland and my son does not have a COVID vaccine. Does he need to show proof of a COVID test before we arrive at the park. My son is also Autistic does Disney have any special permits for my son to get on the ride faster

    Hi Ernest!

    Welcome to planDisney and hello to a fellow Texan! Thank you so much for sending this question to us hEAR! I'm happy to be your planEAR today.

    At this time, while the State of California strongly recommends that all Guests be fully vaccinated or test negative to COVID-19 before entering Disneyland's theme parks and resort hotels, the only measures put into place by Disney are that all Guests ages two (2) and up must wear face coverings when indoors. This includes attraction queues, shops, enclosed transportation vehicles, and while waiting on dining. Face coverings are optional in outdoor common areas. Here's the page with the most up-to-date reopening and health information.

    As far as assisting guests who may need a little bit of extra pixie dust during their Disney days, Disneyland Park and Disneyland California Adventure Park both offer a Disability Access Service, also known as DAS. This service acts as a dedicated return-time vs. showing up and skipping to the front of the line. Once registered, your DAS pass will be valid for the length of your visit. And best of all, you can even register to use DAS from home before your arrival! Do note that this must be done at least 2 days before arrival; if you're planning on waiting to register until your first theme park day, you'll need to go do so at the Guest Relations location in either park, which is City Hall on Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park.

    While the Disneyland website and Disability Access Service pages have wonderful Frequently Asked Question lists and all kinds of helpful information, my dear friends and panel mates Kristin C. and Tony S. both have experience using DAS in the parks with their families. It might be helpful to scroll through some of the questions they've answered about using this service so you can know what more to expect. Or better yet, feel free to ask a question directly to them!

    I hope that this helped to better plan your upcoming Disney days, Ernest! I hope that your mini Mickey has a blast. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
