If you are planning on visiting Disneyland Pairs in the future and you have a disability, the theme park is doing its part to make sure that all Guests are able to have as inclusive of a visit as possible regardless of their ability or mobility.

Of course, not every attraction will be able to accommodate every disability. Still, it is excellent to see Disneyland Paris look at its policies and procedures for Guests with a disability and find ways to heighten the experience with their Disability Access Program. Now, on the Disneyland Paris website, we can see the beginnings of the new disability program that will be offered. By doing this, certain Guests with a disability will be able to experience a stronger version of freedom that they have not had in the past.

As noted on their website:

As of December 3, 2021, Disneyland Paris will introduce a new accessibility program which will empower guests with disabilities and special needs to experience the parks according to their own autonomy evaluation

This new program will:
• Focus on guest autonomy
• Increase the number of accessible attractions by revising priority and easy access conditions and evacuation procedures
• Remove the requirement for disabled guests to be accompanied on attractions
• Provide a 25% discount for disabled guests presenting official disability documentation and for one potential accompanying careperson

Until December 2 included, the policy and commercial conditions for guests with disabilities and special needs remains unchanged.

These changes will surely enhance the overall Guest experience and allow Guests with a disability to have a much more fluid experience enjoying attractions as boarding procedures are reimagined and rules that require accompaniment on an attraction are removed.

Since not everything at Disneyland Paris Resort will be able to accommodate all disabilities, it is a fantastic idea to give Guests who are unable to experience every facet of the theme parks a discount, as it is not their fault that the Park is not 100% accessible.

What do you think of Disneyland Paris’ initiative to create a more inclusive theme park experience for all Guests? What changes would you like to see?
