DAS pass - Idiopathic Anaphylaxis

Does anyone know if its worth me applying for a DAS pass at Disney.

I suffer Idiopathic Anaphylaxis and one of my triggers is heat and stress, and I carry epi pens, liquid anti histamine and inhaler if its needed. It varies from mild to severe reactions.

I visited Disney for the first time last year and didnt know this existed but I just used my three fast pass and left the park afterwards as it was too hot for me to stand in the stand by queue if it as over 30 mins and we couldnt get any more fast passes.

Its not a big deal if I cant, we managed last time without it, i just didnt know this existed, it was a work colleague that mentioned I might benefit from it.

Thanks

Yes you would, just ask at guest services and they will add to your magic band/ticket

Thank you 😀

Do you know if just having a consultants letter identifying my issue with my plan of action will be enough proof or do I need a letter from my GP as well?
I'm presuming you just go to Guest Services and ask if you could apply for one and give them the reason / proof why you think you would benefit?

I'm sorry to ask so many question but I've never asked for anything like this, even now I feel guilty asking my it about it when there are other people who are worse off than me.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones whose anaphylaxis at the moment doesnt affect my breathing, I just get hives, swelling in my body and face but its never been in my throat and my BP drops causing me to pass out.
Its taken years to work out what can trigger it and they are not entirely certain heat does as it doesnt happen all the time when Im in the heat.
In the meantime I follow my consultants advice and he said to not let this rule my life so I dont let it and carry on as normal with medicines to hand if I can feel a reaction coming on.

Ahh! My bad. I always thought anaphylaxis to be when the throat becomes restricted (swelling) hence the death bit 😲 Mind you it still sounds terrible ☹️
