    Hi! I have some questions regarding DAS Pass and ILL. 1) Can our two daspass preselects be for a park we do not have a reservation for, but plan to “hop” to? 2) Can you buy an individual lightning lane for a ride in a park you plan to “hop” to before 2pm?

    Hi there, Breanna!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    One of the things that I love most about Walt Disney World Resort is how they always go above and beyond to make sure that the magic is accessible to everyone.  My son has autism, and when I visit the Walt Disney World theme parks with him, we use Disability Access Service (DAS).  DAS is an accommodation intended for Guests who, due to a disability, cannot wait in a typical queue environment.  Guests using DAS can request a return time for an attraction.  That return time will be based on the attraction's current standby wait, and any time after the given return time, the Guest and their party may access the attraction without going through the standby queue.

    DAS has always been extremely helpful for my family, and some recent updates have made this accommodation even more convenient to use.  Guests now have the option to pre-register for DAS via a live video chat with a Cast Member.  During this registration chat, you will also be able to book up to two one-hour return windows per day for select experiences (based on availability) using the new DAS Advance planning option.  These advance selections are in addition to the return times that you can request during the days of your park visits.

    In my experience, when pre-registering my son for DAS, I was only offered DAS Advance options for the theme park we had made our park reservations for each day.  You do, however, have the ability to request the time of day (morning, afternoon, or evening) during which you would like to book your pre-selected experiences.  So if you intend to park hop in the afternoon, I would recommend trying to book your DAS Advance selections for the morning.

    Currently, Guests who have tickets with the Park Hopper option must first visit the theme park where they have a park reservation.  Then starting at 2:00 p.m., those Guests may choose to hop over to one of the other parks.  If you wish to purchase a Disney Genie+ Individual Lightning Lane for an attraction at the park that you are planning on hopping to, you may certainly do so.  There's no need to wait until you enter your second park.  You can purchase that Individual Lightning Lane in the morning, just be sure to select a time that is after 2:00 p.m.  If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you may purchase Individual Lightning Lanes beginning at 7:00 a.m., and all other Guests may make those purchases at the park opening time.

    Breanna, if you have any additional questions as you get ready for your vacation, please don't hesitate to ask.  See ya real soon!
