Disney Parks Are Very Accessible for Guests with Disabilities
All of the Disney Parks have been known as great places to vacation for guests with disabilities.
Disney Parks offer many services for guests with disabilities, including unique ride cars that enable guests to remain in their wheelchairs, American Sign Language interpretation at live shows, special equipment and facilities for resort access, and disability-specific pamphlets and guidebooks.
However, recently Disney has gotten even more accessible.
Disney guests with visual disabilities are now able to explore Disney parks in a whole new way. Utilizing an enhanced, 7.2-ounce Disney-designed handheld device, users first hear an interactive audio menu from which they may choose the type of information they’d like to receive.
The assistive technology device’s options include: descriptions of outdoor locations throughout the park like nearby attractions, restaurants and entertainment, or detailed audio description of key visual elements inside more than 20 attractions.
Guests with some hearing loss are covered, too — assistive listening features include captioning to read while enjoying specific attractions, and visual indicator door knocks in resort hotel rooms.
