    How do I register for DAS before arrival from the UK? I need to apply for one of my Children and rwad you should do it before your trip

    Lee, it's my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney today! 

    Walt Disney World offers Disability Access Service (DAS) to Guests who, because of a disability, cannot wait in a typical queue environment. Once DAS is in place, it usually allows up to five fellow Guests to select return times for experiences rather than waiting in line. Lee, as a fellow U.K. resident, I know that preregistering for DAS is not possible from outside the States at this time. Not to worry, you can still obtain DAS in just a few moments.

    Once you arrive at any Walt Disney World theme park, speak with Guest Relations to determine if DAS would be a good fit. You will only need to do this once for DAS to be valid for your trip. It's a simple and quick process with very helpful Cast Members. The person who needs the DAS service must be present for the interview. Cast Members can help with other needs too, such as guidance on storing and refrigerating necessary medicine. 

    When travelling with our kiddos to Walt Disney World, we find using the various areas in the Parks to run off some steam very helpful. There's an outdoor playground at the back of the Creations Shop in EPCOT, and an air-conditioned (which we're always super grateful for on hot days) soft-play area as you wait for Dumbo the Flying Elephant in the Magic Kingdom Park. 

    We have also found a break away from the Parks during the day beneficial. Either by taking a nap and a swim at our Disney Resorts Collection hotel or by eating at one of the nearby restaurants in the Disney Resort hotels. I recommend the Grand Floridian Cafe, which you can access by monorail - our kids find this a ride in itself! If you would like to stay all day in the Parks, you can usually find some quiet spots for a moment of calm, at Tom Sawyer Island, for example.  

    Depending on how little your little ones are, Rider Switch means you don't have to miss out on any thrill rides. Lee, I hope you and your family make many magical memories on your Walt Disney World trip. I'm here if you have any further questions. Louise
