One morning of our Disneyland trip we decided to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hour and visit all of the attractions in Fantasyland. We had so much fun and since it wasn’t crowded we didn’t wait very long for any of the attractions. Below is a breakdown of the accessible attractions in Disneyland’s Fantasyland that we visited. Keep in mind we visited before the new Disability Access Service Card came into existence so I don’t have any hands on experience with the process at Disneyland or how the return times work. You can find more information about the service here.
Pinocchio’s Daring Journey
Entrance: The attraction’s exit. There is a gate with a sign.
Ride Vehicle: We didn’t take a photo but there is a transfer access vehicle available. The side opens up like the ones below. It wasn’t much higher than my wheelchair so it was pretty easy to get in and out of.
Snow White’s Scary Adventures
Entrance: The attraction’s exit. The gate has a sign.
Ride Vehicle: There is a transfer access vehicle available. This was another one that was pretty easy to navigate with a little help.
Dumbo the Flying Elephant
Entrance: The attraction’s exit which is to the left of the standard queue. There is a small roped off area where you wait.
Ride Vehicle: There is a transfer access vehicle available. This one was the same as Dumbo at the Magic Kingdom so we didn’t have any problems. I do think I like this attraction a little better at Disneyland though. 🙂
Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride
Entrance: There is an access gate to the right of the attraction’s entrance.
Ride Vehicle: Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride does not have a transfer access vehicle but we really wanted to ride since it’s no longer at Walt Disney World. The side of the car isn’t too high so Drew just lifted me up over it and into the ride vehicle. There is one sitting outside of the attraction that you can take a look at before you ride.
Peter Pan’s Flight
Entrance:Enter through the attraction’s exit. It’s a little tight and there is a corner that you need to navigate slowly so another guest doesn’t run into you.
Ride Vehicle: I can’t tell you how happy I was to ride this attraction. Since the ride vehicles stop there is a transfer access vehicle available.
Mad Tea Party
Entrance: Enter using the ramp at the exit of the attraction.
Ride Vehicle: There is an accessible tea cup. The side opens up making easier to get in and out. I don’t have a photo of the one at Disneyland but you can see a photo in the post covering the Mad Tea Party at the Magic Kingdom.
Alice in Wonderland
Entrance: Enter through the exit which is to the right of the standard queue.
Ride Vehicle: This was another attraction that I was really excited about. There is a transfer access vehicle available. The side of the seat in the back opens up.
“it’s a small world”
Entrance: At the front of the attraction there is a sign and a roped off area to wait and then a ramp that leads down to the boats. You can see the ramp on the far right in the photo above.
Ride Vehicle: The boats at it’s a small world are not like the ones at the Magic Kingdom. It’s more like the Jungle Cruise. The Cast Member will place a ramp for you to enter the boat. There is a lift on the boat. Once onboard the Cast Member will secure your wheelchair and then spin you around so you are facing forward.
Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough
Since the actual walkthrough Sleeping Beauty Castle has a lot of stairs they have set up an accessible experience for wheelchair users. Not the same I’m sure but we had fun checking it out.
There is a screen that tells the story of Sleeping Beauty with a beautiful book in front of it. Since it is one of my favorite Disney movies I thought it was pretty cool.
The area is also themed really beautifully with props, paintings, and nods to the film.
I did not visit King Arthur Carousel, Casey Jr Circus Train, Matterhorn Bobsleds, or Storybook Land Canal Boats. For more information on those attractions you can visit Disneyland’s website.
