    Hi, I’m travelling from England with my daughter who has scoliosis and is awaiting an operation on her back, she unable to stand by for long periods of time long queues will she be able to get fast track for herself and her siblings?

    Hi Emma,
    Welcome to planDisney, thank you for stopping by with your vacation planning question.  It looks like your holiday to visit the Walt Disney World Resort is almost here, I bet you are getting so excited!

    You will be happy to know that the Walt Disney World Resort offers many ways to provide access and accommodation for the Guests visiting who have mobility issues.  There are many offerings and a couple of examples are wheelchair and ECV rentals and Disability Access Service (DAS).  I believe the service you are inquiring about falls within the DAS umbrella.  With this service, Guests who are unable to tolerate waiting in the conventional queue are able to request a return time based on the current wait time.  This way, the Guest will be able to return to the attraction at a later time and not need to wait in the conventional standby queue.  Now for the Magical part!  Guests with DAS are able to take up to 5 additional people with them to each attraction.  So to answer your question about if your daughter can take her siblings with her to the attractions if she registers for DAS - the answer is yes!

    In order to see if DAS is an available accommodation for your daughter, you should stop by Guest Relations with your family after you have arrived at Walt Disney World Resort.  As you can see from the previous link, there are many Guest Relations locations so you can choose which one is best for your family.

    There are a couple of tips I want to note for you about using the DAS.  The first thing is that any member of the party can obtain a DAS return time through the My Disney Experience App, however your daughter is the registered DAS Guest so she must be present when the DAS return time is redeemed.  The other tip is that DAS return times do not expire, so if your group finds itself busy enjoying another activity do not feel rushed to get back to the attraction that has the DAS return time.  At any given time, your daughter can only hold one DAS return time so it is a good idea to go to the DAS return time attraction relatively soon as it is available in order to maximize your fun!

    I hope this information helps your family to enjoy your visit to its fullest!  Have a lovely vacation and please let us know if we can answer any more vacation planning questions.

    See Ya Real Soon,
