Handheld Captioning

This portable captioning system uses a wireless handheld receiver to display text in locations where fixed captioning systems are impractical, such as moving attractions. Receivers are available through Guest Relations and require a $25.00 refundable deposit. You must return the device on the same day for a refund.

Written Aids

Packets containing attraction dialogue and narration, flashlight, pencil and paper are available for several attractions and shows. Please inquire about availability prior to experiencing an attraction or show. A complete listing of available written aids is available at the Information Center located in each park.

Service Animals

Trained service animals must remain on a leash or in a harness at all times. Cast Members are not able to take control of the service animal. Guests with service animals should follow the same attraction entrance procedures as Guests using wheelchairs.
