For ECVs, Sue has it right. DCA doesn't generally have any attractions with return times, as the lines are mainstreamed. There are sometimes exceptions, such as RSR, if the wheelchair queue is beginning to get too backed up, they will sometimes issue return times (usually a longer wait than the standby line though) to spread out the wheelchairs. This has become extremely rare with the new DAS system fully implemented, but I have heard that it does still happen from time to time.

DL is a different story all together, return times are given out for:
  • All of Fantasyland, except the Matterhorn, which has a mainstreamed queue.
  • Finding Nemo Subs (when and if they reopen)
  • Space Mountain
  • Astro Orbiter
  • Jungle Cruise
  • Pirates
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Splash Mountain
  • Big Thunder (Rumor has it that this queue may become mainstreamed when it reopens though)
  • Roger Rabbit's Cartoon Spin (Only when FP is running, otherwise it is a mainstreamed queue when it isn't running)
  • Autopia, when the queue is going up the steps (NOTE: The lift is broken more that it is running at this attraction, so be sure to ask if it is running before getting a return time, not all CMs stop to think about the lift being down as a problem that would mean that the return time was useless. Likewise, if they are not giving out return times, always ask the first CM if the lift is working, nothing like getting up there and not being able to ride because the lift is broken).

In all cases, wheelchair and ECV return times must be used within 1 hour of the return time and they usually will just let you get on the ride if the wait time is 20 minutes or less.

Some other exceptions to the rules and things to note:
  • Gadget's Go Coaster is not mainstreamed, but at last report was not handing out return times, even when the line was over 20 minutes.
  • Innoventions - It should be noted that you will usually need to point out to the CMs that you need the alternate entrance, they usually try to direct you up the ramp, which is not accessible.
  • At Star Tours, you must now transfer to a wheelchair (there are ones provided) prior to using the elevator.
  • Peter Pan usually now requires transferring to a wheelchair prior to using the accessible entrance, but this does seem to vary by CM and in some cases by the size of the ECV, etc.

Since I don't personally use a wheelchair or ECV, there may also be others that I am unaware of, but these are the ones that I am aware of at this time from going with those that do.
