Disney Confirms Change To Special Needs Access
Starting next month, Disney theme parks will change the policy that lets visitors with disabilities skip the long lines for attractions.
Instead of giving visitors with disabilities and their family members a card that allows them to go directly onto rides, the guests will be given a scheduled time period to return to get faster access to the attraction.
In essence, guests with disabilities and their families will get to use a new version of the Fastpass tickets offered for certain rides to all guests.
The new policy will begin Oct. 9.
“Given the increasing volume of requests we receive for special access to our attractions, we are changing our process so that it creates a more consistent experience for all our guests while providing accommodations for guests with disabilities,” said Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown.
