    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    It's also the approximate temperature of the surface of the sun down here right now and the parks aren't very crowded. No more than the average weekend anyway.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    While comforting in a forum (not being believed is a very common issue for disabled folks) Disney can't see my intent. They can only track my stats. And having Drs notes on hand if I'm ever questioned won't save me either, because they refuse to look at them. So I have to balance protecting...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    This is what I'm worried about, but because I don't know how bad I have to let myself get before I leave a line so Disney doesn't accuse ME of gaming the system they've told me to use.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Because it's riddled with questions and worries that can't/won't be answered ahead of time. How sick do we have to let ourselves get in line before we're allowed to leave the line without the threat of "oh you're abusing the system, banned for life" hanging over? Will we make it out in time...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Universal has conditioned their guests differently. Disney's top tier customer service leads to full on "Karen" tantrums because they know if they complain enough they'll get what they want. Mnsshp isn't refundable due to weather but everyone who asks (politely, please ask politely) gets a...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    It does seem very odd that to have the call you have to have tickets and be within 30 days of your trip and the cancellation window is also 30 days. So by the time you see if you can actually experience your vacation you're trapped paying for it.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Yes! You phrased this much better than I did (thank you) it currently reads from stance of "if you need help it's because you didn't try before" instead of something more genuine. Hey, our system changed. Here's what might help. If it doesn't, we're here with other creative solutions specific to...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Yeah like I'm disabled -always- not just in a theme park. The problems exist everywhere. I really don't think anyone involved in making that guide has ever considered that disability is more than just the high support needs young boy with violent meltdowns. Anything more than a stereotype is...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Didn't you hear? Being trapped a bazillion switchbacks deep halfway up a resistance base with no easy exit is EXACTLY like paying for your groceries if you just ~practice~ like I'm CURED 🤣

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/guest-services/guests-with-disabilities/#drawer-card-DrawerPlanningGuide It's right on the Disney website, part of the accessibility and planning guide. It really reads like someone saying "no, you don't have xyz thing you just need to try harder" as if...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    I "choose" not to use standby the same way I choose not to put my hand on a hot stove. I'd much rather be healthy. I wasn't always disabled. I just no longer have a body that supports the way it used to.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Thank you for articulating this so wonderfully. I wouldn't wish my situation on anyone but I'd happily donate it to someone who thinks they'd prefer live with it to "skip the line."

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Yes, exactly. It's not like they don't have the data. How hard is it for them to see hm this das user has a different party of 5 with them every day, or hmm this person is advertising tour guiding with das. Publicly cracking down the way they did with the "free tee shirts" would be effective in...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    LITERALLY THOUGH like somewhere between "I wish I didn't need this" and that "I bet somebody else needs this even more" like feeling bad for taking pain meds for broken arm because someone has a shattered rib cage or something.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    I just hope there's a better process than universal for accommodating overlapping issues. If either one of my two disabilities went away I wouldn't need anything at all to get through the standby queue, but with both of them I do. I don't go to universal as often anymore, and when I do I can't...

    Rivers of Light - Time for a reevaluation?

    I adore Rivers of Light, I based my d&d character off the water shaman Aseema. I'd LOVE for them to bring this back. But I saw pictures floating around of the animal totems ripped apart. Apparently the batteries in the lotuses and totems did not do well with the shutdown/lack of use. I agree...

    News Disney Jollywood Nights - Disney's Hollywood Studios Holiday Season ticketed event

    We had a good time last night. There were a lot more children (little LITTLE ones) than I expected. I can't imagine they or their parents had a great time. Food was great, lines weren't bad. There was a bit of crowding early on but nothing crazy after 10.

    News Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to permanently close this fall

    The thing is we have answered this question before. In this very thread. I caught pieces of this portion on one or two of my cruises but I was always involved in something else and couldn't stop. So I was a step behind on my first cruise when everyone ELSE at dinner knew what dance to do to...

    News Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to permanently close this fall

    We were super nervous because of the assumption it would be geared to and focused on kids. We were whatever exists beyond pleasantly surprised (stunned? Thrilled? Idk) our first cruise to find oh this is for us too. We figured like everything else at Disney we, the childfree millennials, would...

    News Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser to permanently close this fall

    Almost everyone. Even right up until the end people had their first voyage Sept 14 and spent all day everyday until the bitter end calling to try to get back on again. We made it on four times, and most of the people we've met through Starcruiser were on voyage 2+ as well. The one and done...
