    Planning a trip to WDW Oct 17-25 with my 17 year old daughter w/ epilepsy. In the past we have rented her a wheelchair and been able to enter rides accordingly. With the new DASC cards, will we have a problem renting her a wheelchair?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jennifer!

    You will not have a problem renting a wheelchair for your daughter with the new Disability Access Service Card that will officially replace the Guest Assistance Card on October 9th. I haven't heard anything about any plans to rental locations changing at this point.

    Disney will continue to try to accommodate the special needs of Guests as best as possible. For those Guests that are in wheelchairs or ECVs, many queues have been mainstreamed to accommodate them.  For those Guests that are unable to wait in regular queues, they will be able to visit locations throughout the parks to receive a return time for attractions to cut down on the wait times. FASTPASS is an option for Guests as well. 

    Until the new program is fully implemented on October 9th, we may not have all of the details as to how the new system will work.  Disney will continue to offer their Guests with disabilities as much assistance as possible while being fair to all Guests.  If you have any questions or concerns during your visit, please feel free to visit a Guest Relations location for assistance.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions.  We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
