    We will be travelling as a family of 6 myself, my husband, my mum and 3 children (12,3and1). We have used das before and now worried about the recent changes. Is my party considered immediate family? If we do get das will we be able to all ride together?

    Hi Emily,

    I’m so excited that you’re planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! You’re visiting at the perfect time, just as the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE kicks off. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy the beautiful fall decorations at Magic Kingdom Park. 

    Disney strives to provide inclusive and accommodating experiences for all guests. That means in addition to services like the Disability Access Service, they offer many other support services that are available for those with disabilities (or different abilities as I like to say.) I recommend checking out Disney's website, specifically the Accessibility Planning Guide and Recommendations portion before your visit to see what accommodations might suit you best. When you schedule your video chat, they can help determine what accommodations might suit your family best. 

    Regarding whether your travel party will be considered immediate family, Disney determines eligibility for the DAS on a case-by-case basis during a video chat before your visit. This determination considers factors such as your specific needs and circumstances. It's important to note that the definition of immediate family for DAS purposes can vary. 

    I hope you and your family have a magical time!
