Disney Adds Dolls In Wheelchairs To ‘It’s A Small World’ Ride
For the first time in Disneyland’s 67-year history, there are now characters in wheelchairs represented on an attraction.
On Friday morning, two dolls in wheelchairs were unveiled on the theme park’s “It’s a Small World” ride, a project that took more than half a year and involved both Disney creatives and the park’s accessibility team.
The change was part of an ongoing effort of looking at the resort “with a magnifying glass” for opportunities for inclusion, said Kim Irvine, executive creative director of Walt Disney Imagineering for Disneyland Resort.
