    Hi there! Planning to make a trip to Disneyland & DCA How can I go about applying for a disability pass for my son ? & Do you guys have a list of qualified disabilities

    Hello there, Jorge, and welcome to planDisney!

    We appreciate you coming by with your question ahead of your visit to the Disneyland Resort! How exciting that you're planning on traveling to the Happiest Place on Earth soon! I'd be happy to go over Disney's Disability Access Service (DAS) with you in preparation for your vacation.

    DAS is a program that was originally designed to accommodate Guests who, due to a developmental disability such as autism or similar, are unable to wait in a traditional queue setting for long periods. There is no list of qualified disabilities as eligibility has always been determined on a case by case basis after a discussion with a Cast Member. I'd encourage you to study the Accessibility page for the Disneyland Resort because they offer a range of services to accommodate a variety of factors. 

    If you would like to register your son for DAS, please have your tickets and reservations already made and attached to your MyDisney accounts. Between 2-30 days prior to your visit, you may chat with a Cast Member via Live Video Chat and your son must be present for the call. Cast Members are available between 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. PT. When ready, just press the "Request Live Chat" button at the bottom of the Registration page.

    There is also an option to apply for DAS in person on the day of your visit. If you will be visiting before June 18, 2024, head over to a Guest Relations location with your son to speak to a Cast Member. If visiting on or after June 18, 2024, you'll need to stop by Accessibility Services in order to apply. 

    Regardless of DAS, there are other ways to streamline your visit as well. Consider purchasing Genie+ as this will allow you and your son to utilize Lightning Lanes to bypass a majority of the standby queue at participating attractions. You are able to have Genie+ and DAS at the same time. If your son is old enough, there are also Single Rider Lines which usually move much faster than the standby queue. 

    Jorge, I hope this information was helpful for you. Please stop by again if you need anything else from us because we'd love to hear from you again! Happy planning and we'll see ya real soon!

    Wishing you a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
