    My plan with the das pass is to book mine train as soon as we’re in the park, can you use the pass with extra morning hours? So if we’re already in the park dining can I book it as soon as 8:30 hits or do I need to wait till official hours start at nine?

    Hi there, Tara! Welcome back to planDisney. We're happy you're here! 

    It sounds like you're getting all of your Donald Ducks in a row before your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort and I couldn't be more excited for you! Before you know it, you'll be enjoying a delicious meal in the parks or hopping on a thrilling attraction. Speaking of attractions, let's talk about how you can receive a Disability Access Service (DAS) return time for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

    When I visited Walt Disney World Resort with my mom last year, she was able to use and benefit from the Disability Access Service (DAS) and it helped to make sure she didn't miss a minute of the magic. Like you, we stayed at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and were able to enter the parks 30 minutes prior to the official park opening time with Early Theme Park Entry! Once we tapped into the parks, the DAS tile appeared on her My Disney Experience app by tapping the icon that looks like three stacked lines ≡ in the bottom right corner, then scrolling down just a bit. We noticed that we weren't able to reserve a DAS return time at the very beginning of Early Theme Park Entry, but our desired attractions showed availability a little before park opening. For example, if Early Theme Park entry was at 8:30 AM, we personally didn't see availability for our desired attractions until a little later (closer to 9:00, but still during Early Theme Park Entry!). Then, we were able to reserve a return time for when the park was officially open.

    Tara, this was my experience, but your experience may vary slightly during the time you visit the parks! However, if Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a priority for your travel party, you shouldn't have a problem getting a DAS return time earlier in the day. You may also want to request to pre-register for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with DAS Advance during your live video call when registering for DAS, in addition to receiving a DAS return time through your My Disney Experience app. In fact, it will be worth it to take a little time to explore the My Disney Experience app before you arrive! In addition to requesting a DAS return time, you'll be able to view park maps, access virtual queues, and even mobile order food.
