    As a parent of an adult on the autism spectrum, I heartily applaud these new changes. We have never used a DAS pass, because we feel incredibly blessed that our son’s needs do not extend to any difficulties standing in line. That said, over the years we have seen Disney’s good intentions with DAS exploited by those solely seeking to jump their turn in the queue – including young women leveraging falsified fertility excuses as well as extended family members lining up behind an elderly person in a wheelchair with a DAS, perfectly capable of navigating the queue, even if it means waiting from a sitting position. Thank you, Disney, for doing the right thing in this instance. Those with legitimate disabilities deserve your compassion and assistance. (So many of my friends in the autism community are rightfully appreciative of such considerations.) Those without legitimate reasons (and their often-large parties of interlopers) do not. It’s as simple as that.

    Another way to make more money. Disney is moving to the same system as Universal. Forcing people who can not stand in line for hours to buy Genie +. Are they going to make lines wider so that mobility scooters can go down them?

    This really sad for all honest guests with a disability that is not covered by the new rules of elegibility.
    We just got back fron Disney World and the DAS pass was a live saver for me. I have a disability, due to several autoimmune diseases, that does not allow me to stand or sit for longer periodes of time. I can either walk or lay down. So this past trip was my last one to Disney if this goes into effect.
    Universal has also a very strict system, but they accept a note from the doctor, stating the problem that prevents their patient from standing or sitting in line.
    Disney should consider applying the same process Universal has to filter out the abusers of the system.

    I have serious knee problems as does my wife and she also has sclerosis of her back. And we are in our 70’s.
    Does this mean we are out of luck now and all of the thousands of dollars we have spent there that we have to stand in the long lines and suffer? We don’t mind some waiting and are happy to see some changes for the people who really do cheat
