Disney’s sign language interpreters

Here’s a rare story of a big corporation doing good for their customers: Disney are now offering sign language interpreters at their Californian parks on a regular basis.

Previously customers had to call in advance if they required this service at Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure Park, but now interpreters will be available on-site, with no calls needed.

Every Monday and Saturday as many as eight interpreters will be available at Disneyland. At California Adventure, the interpreters will be available every Sunday and Friday.

The sign language interpreters will be on hand to interpret the stories told in such attractions as Jungle Cruise, Jedi Training Academy, Storybook Land Canal Boats, Celebrate: A Street Party, Billy Hill & The Hillbillies, Turtle Talk with Crush, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” and eventually at “Aladdin — A Musical Spectacular.” (Source: LA Times)

This seems to be a step in the right direction – the next step being offering interpreters on a daily basis. Over to you Disney.
