    I have last been to Disney world in 2018 - my son with autism had a DAS I think. Does that expire - does he need a new letter from our pediatrician and how does the system work since 2018 - it used to be priority entry unless crowded-then come back

    Hi there, Dana! 

    Welcome to planDisney. I’m delighted you stopped by with your question for us. 

    When I visit The Most Magical Place on Earth with my family, we, too, utilize the Disability Access Service (DAS). This service has been so helpful in keeping the magic of Walt Disney World Resort alive for my little one, who isn’t able to tolerate waiting in a traditional queue environment. I’m happy to help you learn more about this fantastic service so your son can have the most magical time!

    Dana, DAS is valid for up to 60 days. After this time period, Guests will need to re-register. I’m pleased to tell you that your son is not required to have a letter from his pediatrician to qualify for DAS.

    There have been some recent updates to the DAS program. Now, you’re able to pre-register for DAS in advance virtually! Guests can pre-register as soon as 30 days before a park visit but no less than two days before arrival. During the chat with the Cast Member, you can even book up to 2 one-hour return windows for select experiences! And, of course, you’ll also be able to make additional DAS selections on the day of your visit. Once you’re at the DAS web page, please select “Request Live Video Chat” to pre-register. A Cast Member will work with you and your son to provide assistance.

    If you would rather wait to register when you’re on-site, that’s also completely fine. Simply head to a Guest Relations location during your park visit, and they’ll be happy to help get your son set up. 

    With DAS, Guests will get a return time for select attractions and bypass the traditional standby queue. Here’s a great guide you may find helpful during your visit.

    Dana, since you haven’t visited since 2018, I would also like to tell you that with valid admission, Guests are now required to make Disney Park Pass reservations in order to enter the parks. This can be done during the time you are purchasing your tickets

    We’re so excited to welcome you back to the magic, Dana! Have an enchanting visit.
