Disneyland Cast Members go above and beyond so that each Guests can fully experience everything that the Resort has to offer.
One Guest shared a video of some incredible Cast Members using American Sign Language (ASL) to sign what was being said during a parade at Disneyland so that their child could better experience the performance!
Disney Parks are known for having over-the-top live entertainment offerings for Guests. Part of that live entertainment is parades! From dazzling parades during the day to sparkling shows at night, you are sure to see a parade at any Disney Park you visit.
But what if you are deaf or hard of hearing? Well, Disney has you covered, as they have talented Cast Members who can use American Sign Language to interpret what the characters in the parade are saying or to share the lyrics of the songs! Thanks to a throwback video shared on TikTok by user @jessiejauregue shows just that:
How awesome is that? This is truly Disney magic!
In some instances, even Disney characters will use ASL to communicate with Guests. Recently, we reported on Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Disneyland who used their knowledge of ASL to communicate with a little boy. You can read more about that story here.
