Disneyland Paris will be introducing a new Disability Access scheme from Friday 3 December 2021.
The new scheme will see a total overhaul of Disability Access protocols at Disney’s European resort.
The Disability Priority Card and Easy Access Card processes are being updated to increase the number of accessible attractions at the resort with the mandatory carer requirement to ride many attractions being removed.
New colour coded categories focusing on what guests can do rather than what they cannot is to be introduced.
For the first time guests with a disability will be able to apply for a Disability Access Pass before their visit to the resort via an online questionnaire on the Disneyland Paris website.
Under the new scheme Disability Passes will feature a photograph of the bearer with a QR code, which will be scanned by Cast Members at attractions to verify the validity of the card and to assign ride return times.
One change that will raise some concerns will be the removal of the existing 10% discount for disabled guests and their free carer tickets. This will l be replaced by a 25% discount for both the disabled guest and their carer.
Further details of the new scheme will be announced closer to its implementation.
