Disney’s Disability Access Service Card Goes Digital

Disney's Disability Access Service Card has gone digital. As of April 30 cast members will no longer be writing down return times for attractions but will now scan guests' tickets or MagicBands. This change has been instituted so that the disability accommodation can be integrated with My Disney Experience.

The new all-digital Disability Access Service Card will not alter the procedure for guests who are using the service. All guests using the service will need to visit the attractions they want to ride in order to get a return time based on current wait time.

Disneyland is already using a digital Disability Access Service Card.

This is the second major change to disability accommodation at Walt Disney World. The first change came back in 2013 when Disney did away with the Guest Assistance Card and replaced it with the Disability Access Service Card.

There is a lawsuit pending before the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida that alleges the new Disability Access Service Card and the policies surrounding it violates the Americans with Disabilities Act.
