    I understand the process for pre-registration using DAS, but I am still unsure about the use of return times. Does the DAS program allow you to use return times when in the park as well as what was already pre-registered?

    Hi Colleen,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I am delighted to see you planning a visit to the Walt Disney World® Resort! Yes, I definitely suggest that you pre-register for the Disability Access Service (DAS) between 30 and two days prior to arrival. I suggest that you do not wait until two days prior to arrival because, when we have waited, availability for advance selections has been more limited. Yes, you can make DAS advance selections and make what we like to call a "rolling" DAS selection on the day you are in the park. 

    Let's start with the advance selections. If you are eligible for DAS, review the DAS advance selection list. You can make up to two advance selections per day that you have valid theme park admission. As you make those selections, be sure to check your other plans (i.e. advanced dining reservations). Occasionally, our DAS plans have overlapped with a dining reservation, but we have still been able to finish eating and get to the DAS advance selection or do the DAS advance selection and get to our dining reservation.

    Then when your visit starts, as soon as everyone has officially entered the park, you should see the DAS link in the My Disney Experience Mobile App. We typically make our first "rolling" DAS selection for a high priority attraction that may have a long wait time. Then, we do our advance selections if they were for morning times. So, for example, when we go to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park, we always make our first "rolling" DAS for Avatar Flight of Passage. We would go to do our advance selections and then would head to Avatar Flight of Passage. After experiencing Avatar Flight of Passage, we then use our "rolling DAS" for attractions with the shortest wait times so that we can experience as many attractions as possible while in the park.

    Colleen, I hope this helps! Just remember that yes, you can have your advance selections in addition to making a "rolling" DAS selection while in the park. DAS has literally made the parks more manageable for us. I am so glad that you are doing your research now. Final tip - always confirm the DAS process with a member of the Guest Experience Team when you get to the parks since policies and procedures are subject to change!

    Magic and memories,
