Disney Guests Who Lie to Get DAS Will be Permanently Banned

On Tuesday, Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort announced their updated disability access service (DAS) launching later this spring. In the FAQ for this service on both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort websites states that guests found lying to obtain DAS will be permanently banned from the parks.

DAS FAQ States Lying Guests Will be Banned

Disney states the following in answer to the question, “What happens if any of the statements made by a Guest in the process of registering for DAS are found to be not true?”

If it is determined that any of the statements a Guest made in the process of obtaining DAS are not true, the Guest will be permanently barred from entering the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort, and any previously purchased Annual Passes, Magic Key passes, tickets and other park products and services will be forfeited and not refunded.

DAS FAQ

The updates hope to crack down on the overuse of DAS that has resulted in longer wait times for disabled guests and others using Lightning Lane. Use of the service tripled in the past five years.

It is now designed to only support guests with a “developmental disability like autism or similar, are unable to wait in a conventional queue for an extended period of time.” Disney is restricting the party size attached to a DAS pass to four immediate family members, with exceptions for minors. The pass will be valid for the length of the guest’s ticket or up to 120 days, whichever is shorter. Walt Disney World will also require virtual registration and Disneyland Resort will limit in-person registration to one location on the esplanade.

A defined “return-to-queue” service for guests who may need to leave a queue to use the restroom is also in the works. Other services for guests who may not be eligible for DAS are outlined on the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort accessibility pages.

The updates will officially launch on May 20 at Walt Disney World and on June 18 at Disneyland Resort.
