Just to let everyone know that you can still get ONE free carer ticket for someone accompanying a person with disabilities. Provided they have a government issued disabilities card, and a valid ticket.
You just have to go to the Donald Desk to sort it out now
You can also do it pretty early in the morning, because I did it at 9am (printed entrance ticket and my EU disability card in hand) and it was no problem. The CM was super friendly and helpful, and we were allowed to enter the park at 9.30am.
I just wanted to put that here for other people that need this info. My husband and I went on October 5th.
It's best to ask a CM at the entrance to double check things though, because DLP tends to make changes and you might accidently end in the wrong queue if you don't check (we did check and that's how we ended up at the Donald Desk).
