Disney Goes To Trial Over Theme Park Disability Access Policy
[Source: Disability Scoop]
People with autism and other developmental disabilities could soon return to front-of-line status at Disney theme parks, depending on the outcome of a trial that starts Tuesday in federal court in Orlando, Fla.
The lawsuit, initially filed by a plaintiff identified as “A.L.” more than five years ago, claims Disney violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it changed its policy in 2013 to no longer allow people with autism and other special needs to go to the front of the line for rides and other attractions. There were more than 20 other plaintiffs on the lawsuit, but the suits were separated and A.L.’s case is the first to go to trial.
