Which rides are (and are not) included with Disney’s new Advanced Planning DAS system?

Disney has provided the full list of attractions that are included in the new DAS system. They have also provided the attractions that are not, and those may surprise you. Did you expect exclusions? Do you think this is fair?

This post concerns the ADVANCED PLANNING option!

When all of the Genie news came out, Disney also announced changes were underway for the DAS system. In the announcement, we learned that there would be a pre-booking option and Guests would be able to obtain return times via the app instead of in person.

The new DAS system will roll out with Genie on October 19. We still do not know when the pre-booking option opens up.

You can read the most recent update for pre-booking and pre-selecting vs same day booking HERE. Disney has since updated its website to include the list of attractions that can be selected using DAS, which you can see below.

Rides that are NOT included

The attractions that you pay a la carte for appear to be excluded from the advance planning attraction list. Perhaps you will be able to select DAS returns times for them the day of? Disney is not specifying either way. We simply do not have the answers to all of these questions. Will you still have to pay for the ILL attractions? Will you be able to select them the day of? We will find out next week when it debuts.

The language from yesterday’s update was confusing and more clarification is needed on several aspects. As a reminder, here are the Individual Lightning Lane Selections aka the a la carte paid options:

At Magic Kingdom:

  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Space Mountain

At Hollywood Studios:

  • Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

At Animal Kingdom:

  • Avatar Flight of Passage
  • Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

Do you think it’s fair the Individual Lightning Lane Selections are excluded from the DAS advanced planning? Join the conversation in the comments below and on Facebook.

with Genie plus you have shorter waiting times and dont have to wait in line. But with DAS you have the same wait time as all of the other guests but you dont have to wait physically in the line. So if the wait time is 2 hrs and its 1:00 your return time will be 3:00. You just dont have to physically wait but you have the same wait time. So those with DAS can have time to go to a calm down room if they need to or take meds ect. So you dont get shorter times like with the Genie plus.

I have a bad back from when I fell and can't stand for long periods. Does this quailiy me?

If you cannot stand for long periods of time they will probably advise you to get a wheelchair or scooter. Mobility issues that are resolved with either one will not qualify you for DAS.

This fully comes down to the individual to be fair... my husband has chrones so he's fine on rides, but he needs to make very regular toilet stops. This means unless we were lucky to get a Genie+ ride, there's just no way we'll be risking hour long queues, only to have to leave them for the toilet. This gives assurance that we won't be queing long, and if we still do need to leave the queue, we've not wasted too much time, and it's less of a loss than a long wait we've experienced, or a paid Genie+ / LL that we've missed out on.

Can you use DAS for a return time before you actually enter the park for the day? For example, I'm going to Animal Kingdom for the day, but don't plan to arrive until 10am. I go on at 9am and the wait for Flight of Passage is already two hours, can I select a return time 2 hours away before I check into the park, or can you only do this when you're physically IN the park for the day?

You have to be in the park in order to get your day-of DAS selections. You can pre-select 2 attractions 30 days in advance, but Flight of Passage is not included in the pre-selections.

Hi Dave, I am from the UK and have registered. You need to use a VPN (I use Tunnel Bear on my phone) and then the video chat works.
