Hi there -
Planning 2 days at MK in March (CL 10 and 8) with DH, DD13, and DD8. We are planning our days around DD8’s interests and needs. I am considering asking for a DAS pass and wonder if you could chime in on whether that is the appropriate solution for the following situation:
DD8 can walk and move in a basically typical manner but tires easily. She cannot tolerate standing in one spot for long. As an infant and toddler she had rickets (soft bones) in her orphanage. Standing still on her wonky feet is terribly uncomfortable.
She does not have any cognitive or behavioral disabilities. She’s not confined to a wheelchair at all. In fact I’m sure people at her school have no idea that she needs some TLC in certain circumstances.
When I read the DAS guidelines, it appears to me that the system was designed for people who cannot tolerate standing for long periods. But then I’ve read on these forums and elsewhere that it’s for people who may have cognitive/emotional/behavioral difficulties (and similar) in long lines.
I don’t think we want to do a wheelchair pass for her oversized stroller because it it hard to navigate a large stroller through some of the lines. I am not trying to skirt the system but it is not going to be a fun trip if she has tears running down her face as she is in pain standing for lengthy periods.
The only other time she’s been to WDW she was too small for many of the rides, and we carried her on our shoulders in line.
Your thoughts and suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks so much.
