  • Disney now offering devices for visually impaired guests

    This is a really amazing idea that is LONG overdue. Kudos to Disney for offering this service!!!

    Disney parks offer devices for visually impaired visitors - Around Disney - OCRegister.com

    After becoming legally blind at age 30, Brenda Woodrum missed seeing the details of one of her favorite Disneyland rides, Pirates of the Caribbean.
    So, Woodrum teared up when she heard a description of cannons shooting from pirate ships on the ride using a new listening device that just became available at Disney parks.
    “It was really an emotional experience,” said Woodrum, 47, of Fullerton. “I remembered what was there, but sometimes I’d ride it and not know what was there. I had kind of a sense of loss.”
    Starting Sunday, Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure for the first time began offering hand-held devices that give audio descriptions of scenes in 19 attractions for visually impaired guests.

    The attractions that will offer the service at Disneyland include:
    • Enchanted Tiki Room
    • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    • Alice in Wonderland
    • it’s a small world
    • Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride
    • Peter Pan’s Flight
    • Pinocchio’s Daring Journey
    • Snow White’s Scary Adventures
    • Storybook Land Canal Boats
    • Disneyland Railroad
    • Haunted Mansion
    • Pirates of the Caribbean
    • Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage
    • Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters
    • “Honey I Shrunk the Audience” movie
    And at Disney's California Adventure:
    • It’s Tough to be a Bug!
    • Turtle Talk with Crush
    • Monsters, Inc. Mike and Sulley to the Rescue!
    • Muppet*Vision 3D
    Walt Disney World began using a similar service back in March of 2009.
