great info on the new DAS cards. I'm so glad they are working for most people. I think Disney had to do something with the old cards because of the abuse of the system as it was. I got so tired of people taking advantage of the cards, EVC's, wheelchairs that I seriously thought about not doing Disney anymore. Can't count how many times we saw people on carts, etc, who took advantage of entering the buses first, then got to the park and got out of their carts, walked around, let kids ride on it, then got back on when approaching a ride. The abuse of this system was getting horrible. It's a shame that you can't help people with disabilities without some people taking advantage of the system just so they can get to the first of the line,and get one a bus first! There are so many people that this system really helped. It got so bad that (as I was told by a Disney insider who knows the system) that some people with money were hiring handicapped people in wheelchairs just so they didn't have to wait to get on the buses or in line like the rest of us. What a shame. I am so glad that Disney has launched this fair system of the DAS. I have heard that the number of wheelchair, cart rentals is way down in the parks, from someone who has been there recently. I hope those people can't figure out a way to ruin this new system! Disney is not required to offer these services, but they do it to help people with disabilities. I have an "unseen" disease. To look at me you would not know that I have a problem. So far, I have not used the DAS, but may need to in the future and it is nice to know that this service is offered by Disney. Thanks for letting me get on my soap box.
