Disney announced changes to the Guest Assistance with Disabilities program called the Guest Assistance Program (GAC), which is offered at Walt Disney World and Disneyland for free. It now called Disability Access Service (DAS).
The Disability Access Service or program will give guests time for an attraction based on the current timeout.
Disney received assistance in developing the new card, relating to groups of people with special abilities, such as Autism Speaks.
With this card, the disabled person and up to five members of their family can move to attractions, almost directly, through a special row.
By creating the new card, Disney is creating a more consistent experience for all of its guests, including people with special abilities.
People eligible for the Disability Access Service are those who cannot wait their turn at park attractions in a conventional environment, due to a disability, whether apparent or not.
