Happy Halloween! Even though it’s only August, the spooky season is upon us at Disney Parks, with Disney After Hours Boo Bash making its debut at Magic Kingdom last week and Halloween Time (including Oogie Boogie Bash!) officially beginning at Disneyland in September.
Today, Disney Parks Blog dropped some major Halloween news in an article all about the Halloween merchandise line (and Disney Halloween costume line for adults and kids!) that is now available on shopDisney.com as well as at Disney Parks and Resorts, including Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. In today’s announcement, Disney shared some updates about the adaptive costume line and wheelchair covers for Disney fans of all ages, whether you are a kid or parent, adult or child.
Here’s what Disney announced about the all-new Disney adaptive costumes and wheelchair covers available at shopDisney and Disney Parks.
Here’s what Disney announced today:
Available now on shopDisney.com and select stores at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are wheelchair cover sets. Transform your chair and channel your inner royalty with a magical Cinderella’s Coach Wheelchair Cover Set. Or rev up your chair by transforming it into the Incredimobile! If you’d rather travel to infinity and beyond, you’ll want the Buzz Lightyear Spaceship Wheelchair Cover Set.
We shared last year that Disney came out with a line of adaptive costumes, so it’s awesome that the line of wheelchair covers has expanded in 2021.
In a press release, Disney shared the following about the expanded costume line:
“I’m thrilled that through the expansion of our Adaptive Roleplay collection, we can further connect our iconic franchises with fans and families worldwide through thoughtful design that allows everyone to take part in their favorite stories and worlds—from Marvel Studios’ Black Panther to Star Wars: The Mandalorian,” said Stephanie Young, president of Consumer Products, Games and Publishing. “With today’s announcement, we’re better able to meet the needs of more of our Guests, and we’re excited to see this inspired collection continue to grow.”
The wheelchair covers, specifically, fit most standard wheelchairs with 24-inch wheels. The cover sets include supportive plastic piping pieces for added stability and long self-stick fabric strips to help keep the pieces in place. Although the wheelchair cover can be used by most people with standard wheelchairs, it is recommended for a helper to assist with the wheelchair use while the cover is on.
As you can see in the images included in this article, the wheelchair covers can be used by Disney fans of all ages, adults and children alike.
Costumes and themes included in the newly expanded lineup of wheelchair covers and adaptive costumes are:
- The Mandalorian
- The Incredibles
- Buzz Lightyear
- Black Panther
