DAS & Ulcerative Colitis

Although my Ulcerative Colitis is controlled with daily medication it can still cause me problems, when these problems arise I have to visit the loo immediately & often so I am slightly worried about the lengthy queues for the attractions/rides if it does happen to flare up. Would this medical condition qualify me for the DAS card even though i would only use it on any problematic days I may have(fingers crossed I don't have any). TIA

Thank you for your reply Christbell. We utilised fast passes too last year but there were a couple of occasions when we were in a lenghty queue for attractions which we hadn't fast passed and I had to leave the queue due to the UC so was just wondering where i stood with the DAS card.

I think you should be able to get a DAS. It is for people who are unable to queue for extended periods of time. You will still have to wait but a DAS will allow you to wait for the rides near a toilet rather than in the queue, minimising any potential problems.

Fingers crossed you won't have a flare up at all!

Thank you mooray 27 your reply is appreciated, it was just a thought to request the DAS. Think I will see how my condition is as the time for our holiday gets nearer.

Hi,

I got a DAS for this in September without problem. It really helped, and put all my worries aside

Thanks Howleytronix it's good to hear someone with the same condition as myself was able to get the DAS. I will see how my condition is at the time of travel & will then decide if I need to go to Guest services to request one. Thanks again

Mobile Das card

Hello Users,

I can confirm that if you suffer with ulcerative colitis and can prove this via either a supporting letter from your doctor, or your patient summary you can get a DAS card to get fast track access to major theme parks.

Kind Regards,

Hi, this is incorrect. You do not need a letter. Disney are not legally allowed to ask for one. I have used the DAS card on 4 occasions in WDW, DLC and DLP. Ladyshane please donít worry about what the above post says. This is taken direct from the Disney Parks FAQs regarding DAS:

[B]Why doesnít Disney Parks ask for proof of disability, such as a doctorís note?
Disney Parks takes Guests at their word and there are legal restrictions around asking for proof.

I can confirm this, last August my wife, who has the same medical condition, went to guest services and told them she had a medical condition that may cause her to need the rest room at short notice. Without question they added the DAS to our bands.
