Everyone remembers the news story from this past summer of the abuse of the Guest Assistance Card or GAC at the Disney Parks. Since then Disney has been looking for a way to phase out of the current system and put something new in it’s place.
My writer Sunshine was at Walt Disney World yesterday and went to pick her GAC due to her disability and found out that Disney has lowered the length of the Guest Assistance Card from 2 months to 2 weeks for guests (see image). Anonymouse spoke of the changes coming a few months ago and it looks like change is coming.
While the Customer Service staff would not release full details they did mention the GAC will somehow work together with your Magic Bands.
Keep in mind this is not official just like our post earlier this week about Fast Passes, but we all knew change was coming… As soon as we get more details or the Official Word from Disney we will have it here on Chip and Co.
*Update from Sunshine*
I was told they will be phasing out very soon. He said pass holders will get one good for 2 weeks and than just one day and then no more. They are replacing it with something else so while the GAC will be gone they will have something better he said. It will have to do with Magicbands and your picture may be involved to avoid fraud.
