Improving Accessibility at Disney Theme Parks
In this episode, the hosts of the Yes Day Inclusion Podcast, Laura & Kirby discuss their visits to #Disney Theme Parks over the years and the impact of the the Disability Access Pass #DAS over time. Compared to the full-service accommodations originally made by the parks with the Guest Assistance Card, their #access points took a dip for several years but with the new system that rolled out in Fall of 2021, it seems they are prioritizing the #needs of their vulnerable populations and moving towards improving their DAS system...but we need to have a hard conversation about #equity.
