Hi Everyone! I've been reading all of your wonderful posts for a while now, thought it was time to finally introduce myself! I LOVE all things Disney but don't get there nearly as often as I'd like, trying to make it down mid March and bring my 3 year old daughter for the first time! I hope it works out!

I've had platinum over a year and never could sign in and no I never contacted admin but today is that day. Hubby bought me iPhone 6 due to unreliable 4s shutting on me when it had at least 29% battery. Anyway Platinum is totally the way to go. I'm glad I'm with the time. "Moving on up.."

I'm sorry it was bad hon. I have not gone to get my new one as I've been so sick but I'll let you know on it. I think if it seems too loud for you it might be the signal an attack is coming on so then you sit somewhere. The need to fix this pronto!  - secretagentangel  1322.7 #104 1:07AM
secretagentangel You are so right. The minute it's going in that direction it's better to be safe than sorry. I felt like I was on a roll because I had just done HM and I kept thinking as the line moved we would not be in such a bad place. And since this has not happened in so long I couldn't find my ear plugs quick so it escalated fast. We got about 7 people in the POTC line last weekend and I told John I couldn't do it and we left.  We had a return time for SM so I was trying to tough it out. Bottom line, stick with return times for now and get out the second I feel it. Thanks Hon for the great advice! - MrsSchnooks  2917.8 #37 1:29AM

I've been wondering about this because of my panic disorder. I'm usually ok but the que for Peter Pan and the actual Roger Rabbit ride both are triggers for my panic attacks. I can only ride jungle cruise if the line does not go up the stairs. AND I try to stay away when the parks are too crowded. I normally only watch the parade & fireworks during Christmas time and I'll only watch them once. - luxkitty  2051.4 #59 1:37AM
I hear you on the Roger Rabbit attraction mate. I went on once and that was it 😨😨 - RapunzelledColey  110.9 #3250 1:39AM
luxkitty Peter Pan was where I had my last one. The line was short so we decided to take advantage but then it broke down and people got frustrated and started hopping over the railings and pushing past me and it felt like everyone was coming at me and I couldn't escape. John just held me tight and I buried my face in pictures on MW and the jumpers all left which was funny because it started back up in 5 minutes. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MrsSchnooks  2917.8 #37 1:50AM

I had a das because i have Tourette's and the pass really helped when my disorder was bad.i just returned to Disney this weekend I was told that they are no longer using that system. The cast member was very rude and reluctant to help me out and tell me what new disability system that they are now offering guests. The pass was very helpful and I was told to "get a wheelchair" and "utilize Disney's  More...

Thank you for sharing all of your experiences with this situation☺️. For me, I felt that it was quite embarrassing to have to stand there and explain my disability to the CM (which by the was was younger than my grown children) who has no medical background, therefore they wouldn't know what I was talking about....it then becomes a lengthy conversation about my medical history in a room full of strangers. Now I'm not a person who is easily embarrassed, but the fact that I look healthy makes everyone turn around and give their ear to my conversation at that time. If this is the way they want to do things that great! Have an MD/DO/NP/PA/RN  in a room to the side where you can go in and discuss your concern with someone who understands and can make that call. I think the fact that my MD felt it was necessary to give me disability placard due to my disability is enough. They made me feel like I was lying...the first CM at city hall actually told me "if you're in line and you need to sit down, let the CM know"😳 um, at what point during the 50 minute wait in HM am I supposed to encounter a CM to let them know that?  She also said "you can have your party wait in line for you" sure!!! I'll have my 11 year old stand in line alone for 45 minutes for me... This is a broken system currently with too many people abusing it. With my ASD son, I'm now not quite sure he will be able to go...and I'm supposed to stand there with him (13 years old) and embarrass him by listing all of his issues....this makes me sad.   - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1009.1 #158 9:40AM
I could not agree with you more! It has turned into a very embarrassing situation for my husband every time he has needed to go to city hall for this. I understand wanted a clear picture of concerns...but to be standing in the room where there is zero privacy discussing medical issues with people that truly do not understand most medical problems is difficult...especially when you feel their judgments.  My husband is a OIF/OEF veteran with PTSD making Disney trips already very stressful...it's frustrating to know that we have fewer and fewer trips because this system just makes it more difficult to manage his mentality before we even really get started in the park. I understand they are trying to weed out the abuse of the system....but it shouldn't be done by making those truly struggling embarrassed or uncomfortable discussing personal information. - ktkakes  331.0 #663 10:16AM
They could just have people fill out a form with their limitations, rather than having to explain everything verbally in front of others?  Or have people walk into a more private room/area with the CM?   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.8 #316 10:51AM
It would be great if there could be some type of medical personnel involved. I still cry when I have to explain why we need a DAS. Hubs' injuries can't be seen, and I feel like we are being traumatized over and over.  Unfortunately, it is this way because a few dishonest people were able to take advantage of a trusting system.  Now, everybody is questioned. I think the system tries to make one person one mold, and we all don't fit that idea.  People can have the same injury, disease, disorder, but it affect people differently.   - Sugarbuzz  168.4 #2305 3:09PM
Ktkakes- I understand how you feel. My husband (also has PTSD) for a few trips sucked it up but finally asked for a pass and things became a lot less stressful. One of the highlights of our last trip was that we were able to go on Peter Pan as a family. That line is probably the worse for him. After reading this post I am so worried about us going in May.  - MrsGrumpy2002  203.0 #1857 3:27PM
Oh my gosh yes Peter Pans line is horrible!!! So tightly confined and slow moving...and it does get quite noisy with all the people in the area. I hope that they can develop something more efficient that is less intrusive with the average Joe CM without any medical knowledge.  Good luck to everyone having to deal with this! - ktkakes  331.0 #663 3:36PM
Just know each situation is case by case. I'm sorry you felt the way you did and maybe that is something to address with guest relations, your experience with the DAS process. The point is not to "grill" you about your condition but rather determine the best course of action for you. No the guest relations cms are not medical professionals but they are trained for the positions they hold. It's unfortunate that people abusing the system has forced the hand to be more strict. With the queues being wider/larger to accommodate wheel chairs and ecv's they are directed to wait in the regular stand by lines.  - CM_Tamstirr  551.3 #324 7:53PM
Aren't they not supposed to question or grill u in accordance to the ADA? But I can only imagine having to explain ur medic history in a room full of strangers who are younger than ur grown children who prob knows nothing about it. I'm sorry I hope they continue to work the kinks out.  - mickeyat78  1573.4 #88 8:08PM
I think ultimately the problem is that when people think disability they think wheelchair.  Unfortunately that leaves out a huge number of individuals who have to prove they have legitimate restrictions. But these disabilities end up being the ones faked the most because there us no visible sign of struggle.  - ktkakes  331.0 #663 2:18AM
Yes, they word it as "what are your concerns" but the only way you can explain your concerns is to tell them what's wrong with you. I agree that they should have a form or a private area where people can fill them in and not have to stand there like a criminal trying to prove they aren't lying. We go back again in July, and I don't relish having to deal with this againπŸ˜” - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1009.1 #158 5:23PM
Wow, the GAC/DAS system seems to get crazier every trip.  We always carry a letter from our son's doctor as well as my state issued disabled card plus we have our service dog.  I hope things get better for those who truly need this service  - BombFrogFormerCM  808.9 #196 1:00AM
I'm a cast member and fully understand how the new DAS system works. My family went to the parks early December and my (then) 7 year old son was with us and has AD/HD. When I went to inquire about DAS for him I explained he has AD/HD and fidgets and fusses if confined in a "tight" space for extended periods of time. The CM asked me what he does and I told her he has fits and hits and makes a huge scene....she seems reluctant to give it to me but did. I only got return times for attractions with waits over 20 mins bec of his condition. (He's even on meds for it.) The point here is take your time explaining your situation to the CM. They need to know the reason you're not able to stand in the regular stand by line. It is up to City Hall and Chamber of Commerce to issue the DAS and its all done on your park ticket now and you're entire party must be there so all cards can be scanned initially.  - CM_Tamstirr  551.3 #324 8:49AM

This is how it was at Thanksgiving for us and all went well. - BombFrogFormerCM  808.9 #196 1:01AM
Thank you for sharing all of your experiences with this situation☺️. For me, I felt that it was quite embarrassing to have to stand there and explain my disability to the CM (which by the was was younger than my grown children) who has no medical background, therefore they wouldn't know what I was talking about....it then becomes a lengthy conversation about my medical history in a room full of strangers. Now I'm not a person who is easily embarrassed, but the fact that I look healthy makes everyone turn around and give their ear to my conversation at that time. If this is the way they want to do things that great! Have an MD/DO/NP/PA/RN  in a room to the side where you can go in and discuss your concern with someone who understands and can make that call.

I have found it much better with my experience. I even got my pass re-printed (that changes the number). I went to one of the guest relations kiosks. They asked which person was the DAS. That's when it dawned on me the new pass. They associated it right then and there. Didn't even ask questions. It unfortunately does seem hit and miss.  They also give you a "green" bordered piece of paper to help you remember return times. I would ask for and keep that for next time. I also think once you have it, sometimes the way you ask helps. Just letting them know you need to "renew" your DAS helps. I've seen that work with many people at both locations.  Often the kiosks don't have a lot of people, so you could possibly pick a time where there isn't someone in line and they have two CMs. Hope a couple of those suggestions help. I think splitting the "DAS" into two categories has caused a lot of confusion (wheelchair and original "green" DAS). - DLKenCA  1854.9 #73 4:23PM
