When it comes to Disability at a theme park you can either go on a attraction that is fine to go on with a wheelchair or you have to transfer.
In this section I will be telling which rides are fine to go on with a wheelchair and which ones to transfer, instead of going to a park map which has small print and hard to tell and confusing symbols. or assistance guide which doesn’t help either cause it still has small print and symbols and you have to through all the blah blah blah to get to the rides so here’s a section that gets straight to the point.

Disneyland

Disability Pass: Disability Access Service (DAS)

Renamed the Disabled Access Service Pass or DAS Pass for short, you’ll be able to go to any information booth and get your passes scanned then come back when your time is near and enjoy. one ride at a time though.
