Theme parks can be big family fun, but for persons with disabilities it can be a challenge. From the crowds and noise to long wait times, many families steer clear of amusement parks because it can be too stressful––but not at Disneyland.

The park has just announced several changes its Disability Access Service (DAS) to bring the magic to everyone. Designed specifically for people who have difficulties tolerating long lines due to a disability (those in scooters and wheelchairs do not qualify), DAS lets park goers book return times for select attractions so they can avoid standing in line.

While the service does not allow guests to skip the line, it does provide a return window that is similar to the length of the line so they can move around the park instead of waiting in line. And starting Dec. 20, park goers can pre-register for DAS Advance virtually.

Using a live video chat up to 30 days in advance of your visit (and no less than 2 days before), you can book up to two one-hour return windows for select experiences. Additionally, you can book return times from within the app once you arrive in the park. This new feature lets guests skip the trip to a Guest Relations location scattered throughout the park.

You can start taking advantage of the new services as of Dec. 20 for your next trip. And there’s much to be excited about: the Main Street Electrical Parade is making a comeback!
