Recently my family and I went to Disney World. Having one daughter with cerebral palsy and another daughter with type 1 diabetes, we were anxious to check out the new Disability Access Card (DAC) that recently replaced the guest assistance card (GAC). The new DAC was implemented on October 9, 2013 in an effort to curb the increasing abuse that had recently made national news.
The basic idea of this card is that you take the card to a cast member at the entrance of the ride that you want to go on and they will give you a time to come back to the ride based on the current wait time. For example, if the current wait time for Space Mountain is 60 minutes, you can come back any time after the 60 minutes is up and be able to go through the fast pass line. The concept makes complete sense, you have to wait just as long as everyone else, you just don’t have to wait in a line for the 60 minutes.
