Some of the changes so far:
First, there were going to be kiosks in WDW and DL/DCA and you cannot get a return time at the attraction.
Then there were not going to be kiosks in WDW and you could get a return time at the attraction.
Then there were going to be kiosks in WDW but you could also get a return time at the attraction.
First you could only get a DAS for 1 day.
Then you could get it for up to 3 days if you were staying onsite.
Then you could get it for the length of your stay if you could prove you were staying for that length of time but AP holders could only get it for 1 day.
Then AP holders could get it for up to 3 days, then 5 days then 2 weeks.
First the DAS holder had to be at the kiosk to request a return time.
Then then DAS golder did not have to be at the kiosk to request a return time.
I could go on, but I hope you get my point about it evolving and that we just simply do not know what to expect on day 1 of the new system. We do not know what to expect on day 30 of the new system, nor on day 180.
And besides, I never said you should drag your son down and see how fast he melts down, what I said was that we should all wait and see how the program is actually implemented before we all fly off our collective handle. That was the wait and see, let's wait and see how Disneyland and Disney World actually handle this new system in reality as opposed to how we all fear they are going to handle it.
And then, at the end of the day if the new system absolutely will not work for you and your son then yes, by all means try and get a refund for the unused portion of your annual passes.
Of course, you should be an advocate for your son but preferential treatment is not something that should be expected or demanded. And really, what the old GAC was giving us was preferential treatment. The new DAS is giving us what we have always claimed to need, an alternate way to wait. We will now be able to wait in an area or manner that gives us equal access to attractions without giving us faster entrance. And if you can't see that, then I really don't have anything else I can say because no matter how much it might pain us to admit it, the old system was not equal access, it was better.
When life hands you lemons, ask for tequila and salt!
