    I have two questions. If I book advanced return times, do I have to complete them before I can self-book? Also, it says when redeeming advanced times you must provide identification. Is this true for self-booking?

    Hi Carol,

    We are so happy to see you stopping by planDisney with a question!

    In reviewing your question, I believe you are referring to the Disability Access Service (DAS) at the Walt Disney World® Resort. If so, you do not have to complete the DAS selections that you booked with the DAS Advance Planning process before you can book what we call a "rolling" DAS on the day that you are in a park. Once you have entered the park, you should be able to use the DAS feature in the My Disney Experience Mobile App to book one DAS selection at a time. We refer to it as a "rolling" DAS because once you have completed one attraction, you can make another DAS selection. Although you should see your DAS advance selections in My Plans in the mobile app, the advance selections are separate from the selections you make the day you enter the park.

    When pre-registering for DAS and using DAS in the parks, I have only had to use My Disney Experience account via the mobile app as my "ID." During pre-registration, the guest requesting the DAS must be present on the live video chat. I have always had to take a photo during the pre-registration process. Then, when we get to the parks, we always use MagicBand+ or Disney MagicMobile Service to enter the parks and scan in for attractions, I have not needed additional identification unless we were activating our annual passes. I do, however, always carry my identification with me just in case it is needed!

    Carol, as you continue to plan, I also suggest that you review the list of eligible attractions for DAS Advance Planning. You should be able to select two per day that you have valid theme park admission. Also consider your strategy for the "rolling DAS" when you get to the parks. We typically book our first DAS to experience an attraction with longer wait times. Once we have done that one, we then use it to book other attractions. I do hope this answers your question. If not, I apologize and please stop back by!

    In the meantime, keep up the excellent planning!

    Magic and memories,
