    I am going to be traveling to Disney with my grand kids in a few months. I recently sprained my ankle. It is a sprain III, which the doctor says will take 16 to 21 weeks to heal. Since I will be in the park before then is there any kind of special pass?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Angela ~

    A trip to Disney World with Grandchildren is always full of magical moments. I am sorry to hear about your sprain but don't let it put a damper on your trip. You can request a Disability Access Service Card (DAS) at Guest Relations at the first theme park during your visit. A Cast Member will ask you some questions so they can best accommodate your specific needs. They will take your photo for the card, go over the terms and conditions, and then have you sign the DAS.

    Here is some additional information regarding the details of how the DAS works. I've also included a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the DAS.

    You can only obtain a DAS return time for one attraction at a time but can request another DAS return time as soon as you have finished one. If available, FastPass+ (FP+) can be used in addition to the DAS. If you are eligible to make FP+ selections prior to your trip, I would encourage you to do so.

    Although you may not use a wheelchair at home, it may help you if you rent a wheelchair to use in the parks. The parks are huge and a wheelchair may make it more comfortable for you. Here is some information about wheelchairs in the parks that may assist you if you decide that may be a good option for you.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR to help you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
