Attraction Access

 

Within the Disney theme parks, access varies from one attraction to another. The Guide for Guests with Disabilities, which is available at Guest Relations, is the best resource. Both the guide and park maps use symbols in advising what is required in order to visit that attraction. Please note that where guests are required to transfer from a wheelchair that they must either do this on their own or have a companion assist them. Disney cast members are not permitted to physically assist in a transfer.

Auxiliary Entrances

 

At some Disney attractions an auxiliary entrance is used for guests in wheelchairs or with service animals. These entrances are not designed to bypass the regular line. The guest and up to 5 companions may use these entrances. The rest of the party will use the regular line.

Parade Route / Show Areas

 

At all Disney theme parks, special areas along parade routes and at the shows are designated for guests in wheelchairs. These areas can fill up quickly, and if there are more than 6 people in your party, you may be required to split up and reunite after the performance. For specific locations of special viewing areas, consult the Guide for Guests with Disabilities (available at all Guest Service locations), or speak to any cast member inside the parks.
