    I know the advance DAS reservation times cannot overlap. If we make a regualar DAS reservation when we enter the park can that time overlap the advance DAS reservations. Thanks

    Hello there, James!

    Welcome back to planDisney! I love how many options there are for guests with disabilities to make sure that they can enjoy their time at the Disneyland Resort, and I'm happy to help answer your question.

    Registering for DAS Advance gives guests the option of pre-selecting a set number of experiences for each day of their visit. These reservations will have specific times when you need to be there to experience an attraction, and they should be your priority! You can find a list of attractions that might be options here to help you plan your selections.

    In addition to your DAS Advance selections, when you arrive at the park you can select additional experiences throughout your day as they are available. Reservations that you make on the day of your visit are not time-sensitive and are simply valid until the park closes. A guest can only have one active DAS return time, so you'll need to use the one you have before you can select another one. If your time happens to overlap with one of your DAS Advance reservation times it's no problem, just make sure you use the DAS Advance reservation first so you don't miss that time window.

    Part of registering for DAS Advance is having a video call with a Cast Member. I'm sure they will be happy to provide answers to any other questions you have about using the system! Make sure to set aside some time for your video chat to pre-register as soon as 30 days in advance of your park visit, but no less than 2 days before you arrive. Cast Members are available between 9:00 AM and 8:00 PM Pacific Time. And if you ever have problems making DAS selections in the park don't hesitate to ask for help at Guest Services!

    You can also ask during your DAS Advance call if there are any additional resources that would help with your specific needs. For example, there are some great guides available to help guests plan their visits! My favorite guide is Attraction Details for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities, which does an amazing job of outlining what you can expect inside each attraction. There's also a general visitor guide that shares tips on preparing for your visit, locations to take a break, and more! 

    I hope you are looking forward to your visit, James! If you have any other questions I can help with please let me know!

    Keep moving forward!
