    hello everybody, I have DAS and I’m AP so I know a lot about it, but I just wanted to know what’s the experience that some of you may have had when asking for a return time close to the end of the day. Especially for the new Toy Story land rides, if there’s like 120 min posted wait like 10 before closing, and you ask for a return time, do they turn you down?

    I have not asked at TSL close to closing but at 7DMT the CM let me right in or did a return time for much less then the posted wait ( I have heard they inflated wait time close to closing )

    I think it depends on whether they are allowing people into the main line. If the wait is extremely long at the end of the day (and actual - not inflated) they may close the line early. I would think that would mean no more DAS return either.

    Basically, if they are letting other guests in line, then they have to allow you in line. If the Standby line is closed, then they can turn you away. I am not sure about Disney World, but at Disneyland the Standby lines remain open until the closing announcement plays, no matter how long the line is and yes that has led to some interesting situations in the past when a standby line is 90 minutes long at park closing. Now usually what they do at Disneyland for return times is the return time becomes about 5 minutes before park closing at that point no matter how long the line is, but you are also getting the return time from a kiosk and not the attraction itself.

    For the proposed situation I’m assuming that the standby line is still allowing guests. I just don’t see them issuing a return time after closing as I would assume the FP line that you return to is closed then.

    form my experience is the FP line is still open for people using rider swap and DAS return times I have also seen a VIP guide in the FP line after the park closed
