Hello everyone, Happy Wednesday! Today we are continuing on in the Disney & Disabilities post series, and we are going through the attractions at Hollywood Studios and their disability requirements. I’ll be breaking down what guests are required to transfer from a wheelchair for, and what attractions they can remain in their wheelchair for. It might be short and sweet, but I’ll be sharing which rides require guests to transfer from their wheelchair to ride, and which ones they can remain in the wheelchair.
Hollywood Studios is a little bit different than the other parks because of the number of shows, but it’s great in that way for people with disabilities! There’s normally accessible seating for all shows, and if you have any questions, just ask a Cast Member! My sister loves entertainment, so it’s one of her favourite parks to hang out at. And she also loves the thrills! Okay, let’s get started!

If you watched the Disney Vlogs, you may have seen the vehicle used for wheelchairs on Toy Story Mania, and it’s still interactive! If you haven’t watched that vlog, you can find it here. We only spent a few hours at Hollywood Studios because of that state it’s in right now (aka all of the construction!), but we still had fun there!
A note about Fantasmic!
I thought I would also note something that happened on our last trip when we went to see Fantasmic! While we were entering with the regular crowds, because we had a wheelchair with us we got to go to the accessible seating with the FastPass+ seating. Your mileage may vary with this, and we weren’t expecting anything, but we definitely got a better view. I guess my advice is to walk closer to the inside of the path where you might be more visible 😉
