Ask a Disney Question: Disneyland to Get Rid of Guest Assistance Cards?

We recently got an email from Chuck, who heard a rumor that Disneyland is planning to phase out  Guest Assistance Cards.  I’m happy to report that this rumor is,in fact, false. While there may come a time in the future where GACs are not necessary on many attractions due to the way they are reconfigured, some variation will be available. For example, while most of us tend to think that individuals who need GACs use them due to mobility issues, the reality is in that people use GACs for a multitude of reasons that no amount of changing a queue could help, for example, individuals with Autism who may find it difficult to wait in long lines.

One of the things that has always impressed me about Disney as a company is how they have led the way in introducing accommodations beyond what is required by the federal government.  Getting a GAC is easy, as it should be, and allows all guests to enjoy the parks.

Chuck, thanks for your question and for reading the site. I hope you enjoy your upcoming Disneyland vacation.

  1. We just used one at Disney World for my 2 1/2 yr old who has sensory processing disorder and is autistic. Best Thing EVER! 😉 No way could we do a Disney trip without the GAC and being able to use our stroller as a wheelchair. Disney does a wonderful job of accomidating those with special needs. GAC are a Godsend.
