    My son uses DAS. Going in May with dated tickets. In order to get the advance das selections with the representative, will we have to plan each day in advance and stick to the schedule? How does it work since park reservations ended?

    Hiya Jaynee!

    Welcome to planDisney! May is a beautiful time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. It's actually my favorite time to visit as it is usually when EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is in full swing. I don't know why but springtime blooms combined with delicious foods make it such a great festival. I hope you get a chance to check it out!

    As you know Disability Access Service (DAS) is provided to guests who have difficulty waiting in a traditional queue environment due to a disability. DAS Advance is an additional benefit where you can 30 days before your arrival begin to register for DAS and book up to two one-hour return windows for certain attractions. It's a great way to start planning and know that your day already has two attractions ready to be experienced. Don't forget, that unlike regular DAS selections that have a return time where you can arrive at any time after it comes up, DAS Advance time slots are set in stone and must be used within that hour selected.  Right, now having the Theme Park Reservations in place is required as the DAS Advance selections will correlate to those reservations. However, with the great news that on January 9, 2024 theme park reservations will not be required for date-based tickets, the effect on services such as DAS Advance has yet to be clarified. I reached out to Guest Services and was informed by a Cast Member that they still don't have guidance on how DAS Advance will be affected next year. I suggest you reach out to Disability Services at (407) 560-2547 after January 9, 2024, to get the latest updates on the service. 

    I am sorry that I don't have the details you need but I know that DAS services will not fail you next year. Guests with disabilities will find solutions as inclusivity is an important Key in the culture of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. 

    Happy Planning!
