    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    They tried that system, it was called GAC, and somehow, after several years, everyone ended up figuring out what to say to get cards indicating that what they needed was the highest form of accommodation possible. Shocking, I know.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    I mean, none of the previous DAS powerusers who lost the ability to use DAS are going to like it, obviously. I suspect the vast majority of people though who weren’t doing that will like it, including those with children who have legitimate developmental disabilities who are still getting DAS...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    There are multiple reports of them giving DAS but limiting it to one person, so if they refused to give you that the CM you spoke to likely concluded that it wasn’t appropriate for your situation, for whatever reason.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    If you are actually unable to you will likely get DAS. Lots of reports are coming out too that Disney is giving “1 party DAS” to people in your type of situation. In other words, you’ll be able to use it on your solo trips, but you won’t be able to add anyone else to your party. A decent...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    The ADA only entitles you to the same access to Disney’s services as everyone else. It does not require that this access is given in a way that allows your family to skip a line with you if they are otherwise able to wait in that line. If you want to avoid that, then you are looking for a...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Maybe because eliminating prebooks would have been shuffling deck chairs on the titanic and they realized it? Easier to do a wholesale overhaul once they recognized the system was irredeemably broken.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    I would bet their analytics showed that this wasn’t what was crippling the system. They could control how many prebooks were given out. It was a known. It certainly had an impact on a limited resource, yes, but not as big an impact as the overall DAS overuse.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Because those folks can be acccommodated with other reasonable accommodations for their limitations that do not so badly interfere with park operations.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    I don’t think the prebooks were as big an impact as you do. Yes, they added stress to the system, but they are not the reason alone that the system failed. Or, to put it another way, eliminating prebooks alone wouldn’t solve the poweruse issue, and the overuse issue.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Because a lot of people booking day of at Guest Services messes with park ops. They wanted to incentivize people to book in advance.

    Yes, that’s correct.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    To incentivize people to do the online registration in advance instead of tying up guest services in the parks. This has been confirmed by insiders.

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Sounds like great news. Some more anecdotal evidence that cutting down on the DAS powerusers may be starting to pay dividends.

    Sure. How many times have your reridden ROTR 5 times in a row when the queue was 120 minutes though?

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Disney World always had a mix of headliners with massive waits and many other experiences/attractions/shows/pavilions/parades with little to no wait (and they still do!). It was never the case that people who went to WDW were going for 10 hours and spending those 10 hours waiting in 5 2-hour...

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    Yes, I believe it’s a thing that exists. However people are getting mad at Disney now based, as near as I can tell, over an assurance that it would be made available as a DAS alternative that exists only in this thread, and maybe on some third-hand anecdotal reports.

    Did you have a DAS interview where Disney gave you this assurance?

    New DAS System at Walt Disney World 2024

    As near as I can tell, RTQ is a thing that was mentioned in this thread, and maybe some third hand accounts of people who were denied DAS. it’s not in any official Disney literature nor was it in any press release. All Disney promised was that people would be accommodated. And they are! AQR...
