Well, before you get told 1500 times to "read the FAQ's" or the ever popular "use the search tool!" RAK stands for "random act of kindness", usually when a MW'er gives away something nice.

 don't think you only can RAK at the park ! You can do them through the mail or a sticker or credit RAK, there are all kinds of RAK's when you do one at the park it is fun sometimes people can't find you unless you really update your location the a lot so don't get discouraged, keep trying and you'll have a lot of fun doing them . Dahulagirl started them originally and she has sadly since passed away so that we still do them in her honor and In honor of Lacey too. - secretagentangel  1235.6 #101 9:44PM

Apparently there are some bugs that need to get worked out. A disabled vet friend of mine was told today to "go sit on a bench while your family stands in line." Not sure that was a correct response from the CM. 
So was it just the same wait time for those who don't have disabilities? That sounds more fair to me but I will admit I don't use the DAS. I realize every situation can be unique but having an equal wait time seems fair-as long as they are not making people stand in line. If people without disabilities would only be able to get on 4 rides, it makes sense that those with a DAS have the same amount. It's definitely not fair if those with disabilities are unable to ride the same amount though. So I guess I was just wondering what the difference was, besides the fact that you could do more with the GAC.  - warchanted  119.3 #3032 10:28PM
Isn't this the system, more or less, that is used in DCA since?  lines on that side are wheelchair accesable you can request a return time pass ??? - mike714  338.1 #614 10:41AM
Well, here's what we did and we went on 6 rides in a couple of hours. Got our DAS after 5 and got a return time pass to Peter Pan, went to Peter Pan after eating so a little after 6, waited 15 minutes to get on, went to the kiosk got a time for Casey, only had to wait 5 minutes so easy, got a pass for Alice had to return in 30 minutes so fid tea cups and Snow White then returned to Alice, got pass to iasw had to return in 20 minutes had a snack then walked on our ride. Just wanted to share because we were testing out Fantasyland tonight. - MrsSchnooks  2666.4 #36 11:49PM
Thank you for sharing.  - dumbbunny  625.3 #266 11:52PM
This is exactly how the system should be working. Good to hear it did for your group. - CM_Shadowgamer  2317.6 #46 11:59PM
There some things that I'll have to get used to like the loud noises that echo as you go through the cage in the SW queue. My solution is not go through it until its completely clear and I can walk through quickly. Or get a return time obviously. Tonight I wanted to test it. For me it's the loud noises and tight spaces that freak me out and get my anxiety going. Going to start packing my ear buds. I did get asked quite a few questions getting my DAS but the CM was new and I was just patient and explained in quite a bit of detail why I could not do this and that. He had someone help him finally and it was fine. - MrsSchnooks  2666.4 #36 12:34AM
That makes sense. Have other plans for in between those longer wait rides. And there are other rides you can go on without kind waits. Sounds like it is doable then. πŸ‘πŸ‘ Well done, MrsSchnooks! 😘 - MeridaFanHasNoAP  3248.1 #27 6:06AM
I wanted to share my DAS experience from yesterday. I went to DCA and showed the CM (Gabe) my old GAC card. He listened to me very attentively and issued me a DAS card. He explained the new policies and gave me a return time for my desired attraction (TOT). I believe I was to return in 40 minutes. After that I went straight to a kiosk and requested my second attraction. This continued throughout the day and we ended up riding 8 rides. I agree the change is difficult, but I so appreciate that there is still something in place to accommodate the people who really need it. I am hoping the people who are not having good experiences can find a way to make the new system work. It doesn't look like the old system will return. I will take what I can get at this point. This new system is still allowing me to enjoy my happy place. Please be patient everyone. I'm sure Disney is doing all they can to accommodate everyone fairly.  - Disneyluvr1976  20.5 #6149 11:07AM
Sounds like that worked for you exactly as intended.  πŸ‘  - bluefairy  643.3 #254 11:22AM
My wife and I take her Down syndrome brother and sister to the parks once a month. The first two times we didn't use the system and I would wait in the lnes for a few rides and then they would join us. Last Friday we used the new system and it worked great for us. We used it for three rides. There is so much to do and see in the parks instead of waiting in lines. I now get to see how excited they get to see characters in the park. They will work with each individuals problems.  You super moms out there let them know about your sons and daughters problems. The new system is for 95% of the people asking for help. - Papa2goofy  24.1 #5722 12:05PM

*** Baby Care Center. They have little potties there. Staff will usually give them a sticker after they go potty. A MUST if you are potty training. Much better than all the other public bathrooms.

Reservations are always good, but they do walk-ins too. The most I've waited is 20 minutes on a busy day. Whatever you are wearing in the park is okay for the restaurant, it is in the park after all. If it were outside in the general public I'd say jacket and tie/nice dress would be appropriate- but since it's in the park nobody expects that. Enjoy.
Ok. thank you for the feedback. We are celebrating our 10 yr anniversary so I think I will be calling to make reservations in the next few minutes. - Mickey_Badge  246.3 #1252 9:13AM
Just to let you know. If you make your reservation for about 8:40ish and request the north balcony?( the one facing Hollywood and Buena vista st. It makes for a Fantastic firework dinner. And they also pump the music thru the speakers. That's will be for our next trip 😊 - mini_MINNIE   948.3 #151 9:24AM

It makes me feel good. No other reason required, and no explanation due to anyone! Beats drinking or taking drugs......
When I go the parks it's my escape -even if its just for a few hours- it my ME time. When I'm there I don't worry about anything at all. I can do what I want eat what I want scream on rides play fun games laugh with friends (or by myself) cry during shows or just sit and watch people and do nothing. If more people just relaxed and went to Disneyland the world would be a much happier place...that's what I tell people when they call me a Disney freak- you are not alone!!! 😘 - missariel33  1394.3 #88 12:31PM

I get so irritated when people do the same thing to me. I just don't understand why anyone feels the need to comment on my life. I mean, it's my money and I work for hard for it. Why would people care how I spend it and where I spend time with my family? We are a family of 4 who look forward to going to Disneyland once a month. And that's ...bad? A friend said to me recently "it just seems like it wouldn't be special to the kids anymore". We had a little discussion. First of all it is special to them everytime we go and they look forward to this family time. Second, why would anyone care if my kids were sick of Disneyland or not? They're my kids, it's our money, it's our weekend time and we take our kids to Disneyland once a month. HOW IS THAT BAD? Sorry for yelling, I just don't understand why people feel the need to comment on other people's lives. - tballzz  545.7 #312 1:08PM
Why am I a Disney freak...I have a very stressful job working with children in the foster care system. Disneyland recharges me mentally and helps me cope with stress. It is my escape. - tballzz  545.7 #312 1:16PM
People do the same thing to me. They also question why I would ever go back on my days off and how am I NOT sick of it yet?!?! It's a special place to me. My home away from home and I can forget my real life while I'm there. I feel "at peace" when I'm there. I've learned that Disneyland is a bit exclusive and people are upset over how costly it is. But like you said, it's my money and no ones business how I spend it. Disney has always and will always be a huge part of my life - CM_Tamstirr  540.9 #314 1:17PM
We used to get that from various friends. Disneyland is our happy place, makes us feel young and carefree again, forget all the stresses and pressures of our day-to-day lives! One of my best friends that used to say things like that to us recently bought passes and now goes as often as us! The magic is contagious! - dalefishtank  157.4 #2438 11:51PM
My love of Disney started out young, but now since I work there, I spend a lot of time at the parks. Other than that, I am proud to call myself a Disney freak by having the music from most of the attractions on my phone at all time. Disneyland gives me the chance to leave my worries and stress behind and provides me a happy place where I can relax and enjoy the magic that it holds. - BaseballMickey_CM  5882.4 #13 11:55PM
