Disney Changes Policies For Disabled Guests At Disneyland and Walt Disney World


Beginning on October 9th, Disney will be implementing a new policy for disabled guests at their theme parks.

Rather than having the option to go to the front of the line to avoid long waits with the use of the Guest Assistance Card (GAC), disabled guests will now be required to obtain a ticket, similar to a Fast Pass, and come back at a later, predetermined, time with the new Disability Access Service (DAS) Card

The reservations will be based on current stand-by times but will give guests with disabilities the opportunity to avoid standing for extended periods of time.

Disney made the decision due to abuse of their disability policies at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

Though some people have voiced their concern regarding this change of policy, it seems to be generally pretty popular.

How do you feel about these changes?

    This new system sounds disastrous for someone who already has difficulty moving from attraction to attraction. It would appear that you could be bounced from one part of the park to another repeatedly, based on times issued at various attractions. Hope they can find a better way to stop abuse of the system while allowing the disabled to enjoy as many of the features as possible in an efficient way.
