If you required any kind of assistance at Disney then you may know that the card pictured above was the old Guest Assistance Card, which was used before they switched to the new DAS system. I personally think the old system was way better. I know they had to stop the fraud but why does that always have to penalize the majority of people who are honest?
There has been a lawsuit filed a while ago, well they want to add 69 more plaintiffs to the lawsuit. This would include 36 disabled plaintiffs and 33 plaintiffs that are family members. The lawsuit was filed in April claims that Disney World and Disneyland discriminated against guests with Autism and violated the Americans With Disabilities Act.
The new program works completely different then the old system. It gives guests with disabilities a return time for attractions based on the attractions’ wait times at that moment. After they experience that attraction they can go to another one etc. The DAS system can be used in addition to Fastpass+.
The new program does not give anyone almost immediate access to an attraction like the old system. The new system makes the guest wait, and there lies the problem. That forces guests with Autism to stand in a line longer then they can handle and this causes a meltdown.
The case will be before a judge in October, but only to see if they will allow the addition of more plaintiffs to the lawsuit.
