    My 14yr old daughter recently had reconstructive ACL surgery and is wearing the full leg brace. I want to drop her and a friend off at The Magic Kingdom, would she qualify for a disability pass and can she get one herself or would I have to accompany her

    Dear Tracy,

    Thank you so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm so sorry to hear your daughter went through a challenging time recently. Do not worry about her not enjoying her vacation to the fullest, Disney has her back! 

    The Walt Disney World Resort has a firm commitment to ensuring that all guests have the best experience during their vacation. As part of this commitment, there are several accommodations in place that your daughter could take advantage of, the most comprehensive being the Disability Access Service, which allows Guests with either temporary or permanent disabilities—as well as those in their parties—to schedule a return time at a specific attraction that is comparable to the wait time when they first arrive at that attraction. As soon as your daughter and her friend finish one attraction, they will be eligible to receive a return time for another. The best thing is that this service can be used in addition to the FastPass+ service. 

    How does one get a DAS card? The guest must appear in person at Guest Relations (located near the entrance of each of the four theme parks) in order to fill out a form and discuss their unique situation, then, the DAS card will be issued and given to the guest. Minors are expected to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. I am afraid you will not be able to simply drop her off at the gate. 

    Mom Tip: Let me suggest that you get the DAS pass at the first theme park. If you need special assistance in the meantime, just speak to the closest Cast Member and explain the situation, they will do anything in their power to provide you with any personal accommodations you may require. If you need more detailed information regarding this service, please visit this link, call (407) 560-2547, or send an email to 

    I wish your daughter and her friend a memorable time together! Please come back with more questions whenever you can. 

    See ya real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
