    How do you obtain a disability pass at the parks?

    Hi, Alfredo!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As the parent of a child with autism, one of the things that I appreciate most about the Walt Disney World Resort is that they go above and beyond to be inclusive and make the magic accessible to everyone.  When I visit the Walt Disney World theme parks with my son, we use Disability Access Service (DAS).  Disability Access Service is intended for guests whose disability prevents them from waiting in a traditional queue environment.

    To see if Disability Access Service is an appropriate accommodation for your family, you will want to visit Guest Relations when you arrive at one of the Walt Disney World theme parks.  There you can speak with a Cast Member about your family's needs.  If it is determined that Disability Access Service is a good fit for your travel party, the Cast Member will need to take a photo of the individual for whom Disability Access Service is being obtained.  The Cast Member will also need to scan the MagicBands or admission cards of each member of your group, so please make sure everyone in your party accompanies you to Guest Relations.

    Once Disability Access Service is set up for your family and you wish to experience an attraction, simply speak with a Cast Member at that attraction's entrance.  They will scan the MagicBand or admission card of a member of your party and issue you a ride return time that is based on the attraction's current standby wait.  Your party may return any time after that given return time and access the attraction using the FastPass+ queue.  Once you have used your ride return time, you are free to obtain another.

    If you have any additional questions regarding visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with someone who has special needs, feel free to contact Disability Services or stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again.

    Have a magical day!
