Here are the updates coming to the DAS:

  • Preserving DAS: The program remains a priority, focusing on guests with developmental disabilities who struggle with traditional lines.
    • Extended Enrollment Window: Guests can now register for DAS up to 120 days in advance (previously 60 days).
    • Adjusted Party Size: DAS parties are now limited to a maximum of four guests, except for immediate family members.
