This week, Disney announced new changes to the Disability Access Service (DAS). After 22 years, Fastpass has been replaced with a new program. With the addition of Genie+ and Lightning Lanes to Walt Disney World, there are also exciting new features to the DAS. Unfortunately, like all technology rollouts at Disney, I’m sure there will be some growing pains.
Preregister Before Your Trip
Pre-arrival registration by live video chat as early as 30 days before your trip. DAS advance selection must be made at least 2 days prior to the trip, and you will not be able to select attractions on the day of your ride. The attraction window will be one hour in length and appear on your My Disney Experience app. There will also be a same-day DAS return time self-selection tool.
In the fall, requesting return times will look different. Instead of having to go to the kiosk in front of each attraction to request a return time, the guest will be able to get a time on the app.
Perks of the Genie App
The Genie app is designed to maximize park time. You can plan your ideal trip with a special focus on your family’s interests. Looking for a foodie experience? Want to visit every possible princess? This new app has your back. There are features like:
- Create a personalized itinerary that updates all day .
- Enjoy your tip board to see your favorite attraction forecast and wait times.
- Join a virtual queue for popular attractions.
- Make dining and experience reservations.
- Chat with a virtual assistant.
