A GREAT INCLUSIVE EXPERIENCE





AT UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ORLANDO


Wheelchair users and others with mobility challenges (plus their companions) know what it’s like to go places that feel like they were created for everyone but us. 

That’s not the case at Universal Orlando.

Here we’re included. 

Whether it’s going to a live action show, walking through the old New York backlot or enjoying a Lard Lad donut (or two), we never felt like we were missing out.  

Virtually every attraction, shop and restaurant is accessible and staffed by people who clearly have been trained in disability etiquette and sensitivity. 

We marveled that just about every restroom facility also featured a family unisex restroom.

These are good for parents with young children, and they’re great for me.

I can help my wife transfer from her wheelchair -- without the uncomfortable feeling of me barging into the women's room or her intruding into the men's room.
