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   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  1009.2 #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  561.9 #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  1009.2 #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

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

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  1855.0 #73 4:23PM

It's actually a bit jarring to the eyes when you are in the park. I am so used to the "in the land" perspective of DL parks, even Toon Town has the fake skyline to keep your senses in the world. But that's just my take. :) - KennyV  253.2 #1219 1:29AM

I'm excited that I'll be working on the DL side doing a show I've never done before. I'm excited that I get to help fellow CMs with something that is new to them. I'm nervous because of all the push back and assumptions I'm hearing from everyone before this new system even starts. Disney is constantly looking to improve the guest experience, not make it worse. No one seems to like change but we all adapt quickly and things always seem to work out for the better. As Walt said himself, "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world." I can tell you first had that every CM I know strives to preserve Walts vision, tradition and legacy daily. We do it because it's what makes Disneyland magical. Ok-I'm off my soap box, LOL  - CM_Tamstirr  551.3 #324 10:53PM

That's really great they are bringing you guys over.  I feel like WOC is down to a science, so I'm sure you all will train them well! - Sarafina  459.3 #416 8:34AM
Great info. Thanks. We are doing the Aladdins Oasis package this Saturday so I'm excited to see the changes! - missmimi90  1590.0 #87 12:01PM

draven898 I definitely will! I hope to report the best but will report the worst if necessary. I am confident though - missmimi90  1590.0 #87 3:37PM
I really dont know about the Aladdin Oasis. Please post all info cause im confused Lol. Is it like a restaurant i've never heard of, after all this time 😁.  - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  743.3 #220 7:33PM
iLOVELUCYnDISNEY- its a sitting area in Adventureland, next to the exit of the Jungle Cruise.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6482.9 #12 8:37PM
So, how did it go this weekend. I would love an update as I want to pick one of these options for my upcoming trip. This is my son's favorite show!  - LaPearleNoir  1301.6 #106 6:48AM
    DisneyVacationLover    made a post as did       @missmimi90  think. Crowded, communication needed to be better, food looked good, walkways clearer by HM, and fast passes gone quickly.missmimi90 - secretagentangel  1322.8 #104 3:54PM
Yes indeed I wrote a long review about how this new system worked for us. If you can get through it, more power to you lol - missmimi90  1590.0 #87 4:07PM
Oh,   TinkerSchelle  Has one also!! - secretagentangel  1322.8 #104 4:17PM
Thanks. I'll check them all out. - LaPearleNoir  1301.6 #106 7:15PM
I'll let you all know how the walkways work with my double wide stroller, watch your feet folks - pikarich  3337.1 #31 12:57AM

Just ask around. Sometimes there are some left overs floating around at some of the attractions.

I sure hope so!  - adisneyfamily  832.1 #190 8:06AM

Yesterday was the soft opening for Viva and in between shows some of the dancers from the show came out with one of the big dolls for photo ops. The photo ops are about 10-15 mins depending on the demand and keep in mind the last show is at 6:20pm

Awh I was hoping Mushu and Mulan would make an appearance again! Great family pictures! - missmimi90  1590.0 #87 4:12PM
so is there a character out all day during this time and they just rotate about every 15 minutes?  Just want to be able to plan my day accordingly.  By the way it is awesome that you got them all.  Did you get all of these at the same time just waiting or different times through out the day. - wolfingtonj  5.7 #14638 9:25AM
the entire event is from 11am to 7pm. the meet and greet is out the whole time but the characters are not. when they are out they switch about 15 minutes because of the navidad show they appear in so they wont be there. it took about an 1 hour 1/2 to do the three but we where eating in the area and waited - pikarich  3337.1 #31 12:05PM

I'm sure the Fantasmic leads at DL have been working with the WOC leads from DCA on FP distribution for the show. It will be interesting to see how the area is sectioned off. It really is a good idea for Fantasmic because it allows guests to see the show and not have to camp out for hours before the show to reserve a spot. Some people spend $150 for a park hopper the. Sit and wait for 4 hours for   More...

I'm just going to say this on behalf of ALL CMs resort wide.  This change is happening as we head into the busiest time of the year.  Probably not the best time to test it out, but that's the date that has been decided.  There will be a lot of changes and adaptations as they learn what does and doesn't work for the area.  Expect there to be increased traffic in Adventureland/Frontierland/New Orleans Square.  PLEASE be patient with the CMs!  Chances are, whatever you're upset about, it's not their fault!  I don't know if I will be trained on the changes to Fantasmic directly, but I'm sure @CM_Shadowgamer will be and will update us as more information becomes available.  Please don't hesitate to ask questions and we will all try to find the answer for you.  Thank you for your patience and understanding! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2278.1 #52 7:39PM
yes, please support our wonderful CM's!  they are doing their best for everyone!! - secretagentangel  1322.8 #104 7:54PM
Thanks you Erika! From working in the same area as you, we will see the area get impacted as these changes are happening. And unfortunately, I've seen that some things that shouldn't happen anywhere, even at DL. But the only way to test anything out is to do it full scale.  - BaseballMickey_CM  6482.9 #12 8:33PM
I got your back! I'll yell at guests who yell at CMs - SpiritOfAdventure  1029.4 #152 6:56AM

Well, that sucks.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.9 #316 2:22PM
Preach it sister! - PrincessDuckie  745.4 #219 7:42AM
πŸ˜‚πŸ‘  I realize they had to change something since that area is so crazy-crowded.  DL is growing and changing, which is good, but a downside is that it's getting harder to be spontaneous.  I'm just a bit sad to lose one of our traditions-I hated the way they handled the WOC FP situation, lol.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  561.9 #316 8:11AM
So you won't be able to stake out a Stage Door table to watch Fantasmic while you are eating dinner? - PrincessDuckie  745.4 #219 10:12AM
No, that area should still be open - BaseballMickey_CM  6482.9 #12 10:56AM

Just an FYI when you come in December World of Color will have already changed to Winter Dreams...and once Winter Dreams ends Jan 7th World of Color will be "dark" until March 12th. It is rumored that WOC will return with a brand new show. Fantastic is the same and no talk of a referb or "down time" for the show. 

Preferred seating for fantasmic definitely! Best place to watch world of color is on the bridge to the pier.  - underthesea1993  12.6 #0 9:32AM
I agree preferred seating is completely worth every penny for fantasmic!  - excmdlgurl  277.7 #972 9:35AM

Thank you! I'mAlmost leaning towards WOC because it's holiday themed & none of us have seen in. Fantasmic I know we can catch another time, plus one of my daughters is easily spooked & that dragon might do her in ;) - cait79  152.3 #2550 3:22PM
My kids are scared of the dragon too :( The high points of Fantasmic are way better than WoC though, imho. WoC seems less scary to me too. - brigeet  392.0 #514 4:23PM
