And while there have been a bunch of updates regarding Disney’s Magical Express as well as a character meal that’s expected to resume and many hotel services that are being tweaked, we just learned some info regarding Disney World’s services for guests with disabilities.

Disney World has confirmed Disability Access Service (DAS) will operate the same as they did prior to the theme parks’ temporary closure. Upon reopening, guests with disabilities will be able to ride Disney World’s attractions through the same process as they could before the closures.

Guests with disabilities will need to go to Guest Relations to obtain the Disability Access Service pass on their MagicBand (or likely a physical pass if they’re not using MagicBands) that will be valid the length of their stay. They’ll be able to go to an attraction and receive a return time, same as pre-closure. Once it’s time to ride, guests will be directed to an alternative entrance for boarding.
