Can I register both kids for DAS?

Can I register both kids for DAS?

"Hi Dad! I've been wanting to ask his question but I've been afraid of the reactions. Here goes. Both of my children have conditions that qualify them for DAS. The last trip we took, I was the only adult.

Next year my husband is going with me and my kids are older. Would it be frowned upon if I were to get a DAS pass for both of my kids. Normally we only do for my daughter who is 7 years older than her brother. But I'm concerned this next time they may want to do separate things and go different ways for parts of the trip. One kid with me and one with Dad. Is it even allowed for both kids in our family to get one?"

Nothing to be ashamed of

Shelly,

I don't see why you are nervous. If your children qualify for the Disability Access Service Card (DAS) then you should use the service. That's what it's there for.

Not sure it will work


I like your idea, but I don't think it will work. I haven't seen anyone ask this question yet, but let me tell you why I don't think it will work.

When you register for the DAS, the whole party must be present and the "card" is put on your MagicBand. When you go to an attraction to get a return time, the time goes onto the MagicBand for the whole party.

I don't think anyone can have two DAS's on their MagicBand, just like you can't have two FastPass accounts at a time.

It would only work if you registered one child and your husband registered the other. Of course if you did that when you wanted to ride together you'd have to check in both groups.

This keeps people from "gaming the system".

Dad's Bottom Line

I'm not sure about this answer, but it makes sense. I don't think you'll be able to register both kids to the whole group.
