Disney is reportedly changing the way disabled guests are allowed to access rides at Disneyland and California Adventure.

The park is ending its “Guest Assistance Card” program effective Oct. 9 because of repeated reports of the system being exploited by guests, according to MiceAge.com.

The new program entitled the “Disabled Assistance System,” will reportedly operate similar to the “Fast Pass” system  that allows the guest to return time based on the current Standby wait time.

But DAS card holders can only reserve one ride at a time, according to the web site.

MiceAge also reports that a disabled guest using the program will have to have their photo taken and printed on the front of the DAS card to prevent someone else from using the card.
