DAS and AAP

Hi

So todays the day! Iím off to Florida,

My DAs is all set up, Iíll let use know how I get on using it and also I plan on using AAP in universal I have had this many times before and have all my documents to prove why I need one, they always take it off me and read it and take forever to decide.

Hopefully everything goes smoothly and I will let you all know how I get on

It worked out so well.

I done 1 day at Disney, i prearranged my 2 advance options before i went which worked out well, i planned to be in Hollywood Studios all day however... i couldn't stand the heat and business. the Das worked really well, i was allowed in at 8.30 as i stayed on site for the night before, and i rebooked rise of resistance at 9am as soon as it was available, it was ready for 11am i was then able to book my next ride they went by so quick and worked really well for me, as i could sit in the shade until my next ride.

I have epilepsy and my seizures are brought on by stress, tiredness and overheated and this is exactly what was happening during the day. I was able to go to guest services and add park hopper to my pass and i left to head to magic kingdom as soon as i arrived and scanned my magicband i was able to book another ride in MK on my das, i done 3 more rides there and headed to AK, to be honest this was the coolest park out of them all, i think it was the trees that made me feel cooler, again DAS worked as soon as i scanned in.

one thing that was annoying was it only worked on wifi and it was dodgy in some places, but overall i think the new system is 100% more better in choosing rides and being able to move yourself around it throughout the day. it really helped me and will be using it again.

So Universal...Now that was great too, the ride times whilst i was there was low from like 5-20 mintues for all rides but hagrids, with the AAP i was able to go in the express lane, i also had problems with my knees so was able to use the lift when needed also

As i was travelling by myself i think this worked out really well for my trip, i took it really slow and enjoyed my time there over the 9 days.

The flaky wifi was the only downside to using the app, the coverage is really rubbish in some areas of the park. Funnily enough wherever there is a mobile food ordering location the wifi is fine...

We got on really well with the DAS and the option at Universal. Very relaxing.

Thanks for sharing, how did you pre-book your DAS selections? I canít seem to see the option to do this online.

i Sat for hours on my laptop on vpn to speak to the american teams, after 4 days i finally done it, i was able to book 2 in advance and pick a time, you can however just register when you get the park but dont get the two in advance however i think you would get on the majority of rides you want to without pre booking too. next time i will save the agro and just do it in the park as ill have my mum with me next year.

You have to do it as part of the video registration, there's no separate booking system as it's manually done by the CMs.

FWIW, it wasn't worth it. I got very lucky with my timings on the video and got straight through, so it wasn't a headache. But I only actually used one of my advance selections as either the timing didn't align or I changed my plans on the day. Next time I won't bother making any and will just use the day of bookings.

DAS being available in the app on the day is life changing though. Can't say enough good things about it.
