Question can you use das during extra hours for onsite guests?

Can you use the das pass during the extra hours for onsite guests?
I know when we've done evening hours before some of the waits have been really long so I was wondering if you can still use the das pass or is it stand by only?

I don't see why it would be any different, the reason the person needs the DAS is still present and like you say sometimes the queues can still be long.

My DD has a DAS pass and we will ask for one again this year, as we are staying on site I will use it when it is needed as well as making full use of the fastpass system.

DAS return times are not supposed to be issued during EMH as they are only supposed to be active when the FP+ lines are active. And they are not during EMH

OP : if you use EMH, you most probably won't get a DAS until regular park hours.

This is where policy stands

now, it never hurts to try, and it will be the Cast Member decision to grant you a return time (or not) during EMH

they may grant you a DAS return time, but they can also deny it. Just be prepared if they say no.

basically it's hit or miss.

There are no standby times / FP+ return times during EMH

thanks

last time we did the evening hours some of the wait times were as long as during the day I'll just plan accordingly and hope the queue aren't too bad. we won't be doing morning hours

I didnít have a DAS on my last trip as mine is a physical impairment so I need to use a scooter.

Wasnít an EMH night but similar in that it was a MNSSHP night so, again, no FPís. Really wanted to get on Space Mountain but Iíd only ridden it this trip via fast pass so didnít have to deal with the stairs in the standby line which is the main difficulty... Standby was also showing a 30 min line which I wouldnít manage.

Explained my situation to the CM at the front of Space and at his discretion he told me to come back in 20 minutes & heíd let me through the FP entrance with my crutch.

So yes. Itíll depend on the individual situation and be at the cast members discretion.

This.

We didn't realise you couldn't use it in EMH and we went to do Test Track before leaving Epcot, the CM informed us that you couldn't use it during EMH but they told us to go through the FP line and we were on in minutes.

As we knew you couldn't use it in EMH we never did again x
