Disneyland Paris To Expand Disability Access And Accommodations

Starting on December 3rd Disneyland Paris will be updating their disability access program. The previous program involved Green and Orange cards which guests would acquire from the guest services center. The new program will involve three different options for physically/mentally handicapped guests.

1 – Priority Access: Gives priority but not immediate access to attractions, shows, character meet-and-greets, shops, and restaurants, as well as access to a dedicated area for parades. The priority access card will be issued to guests who present an official document attesting to their disability (mobility-inclusion cards, documents recognized by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health, or any other official document from their country of origin).

2 – Facility Access: Give access to attractions by appointment. This will be issued to guests who present a document certifying that they have one of the 30 long-term disabling conditions (ALD) recognized in France.

3 – Pregnancy Bracelet: Gives priority access to attractions with safety bars. Guests must present proof of pregnancy in French or English. Select attractions will remain prohibited to pregnant people.

In addition to these different access plans disabled gusts will no longer be required to have someone accompanying them, meaning those who may be assisting them will no longer be given free entry but will be allowed a 25% discount.

The handicapped guest will be able to complete a questionnaire either online or at the park to fully evaluate the guest’s what attractions the guest may or may not be able to access.

Do you think these changes are reasonable?
