My question is- she gets tired VERY easily (reason she chose DL- smaller park than DW). Would she be able to get a disability access card based on her lack of ability to stand in line for long periods of time?
The accommodation for not being able to stand in line is to use a wheelchair.
For some people, that is the only accommodation they need and they would NOT get a DAS. Guests don't need a DAS to use a wheelchair or mobility scooter in line.
But, other people have needs related to the line that are not just 'standing in line' and a wheelchair or CV in line is not enough for them. Those guests need to explain their needs that are not met by the wheelchair. So, have her think of what other issues she would have either waiting in line. That is what she will need to be able to explain to the CMs in a Guest Relations.
