"You are sitting in an empty theater. There is no one else here. Why are you here? Please leave, and go wait in line for Buzz Lightyear, like everyone else."

Published: November 3, 2009 at 3:38 AMWhat an excellent idea this is.
As a sighted person I take for granted the fact that I get the full experience of the attractions when I visit the Theme Parks. The introduction of this new service will, I sincerely hope, add greatly to those experiences for the visually impaired.
I look forward to reading some feedback about this initiative on TPI.

Published: November 4, 2009 at 1:23 PMI think this is AWESOME! I take my nephew who is blind to the local movie theaters where they offer the DVS (Descriptive Video System) and he just LOVES going with me to listen to DVS movies. The fact that Disney has incorporated this technology into their theme park, truly makes it the happiest place on earth. As soon as we can get down there..which is tough in this economy...you will make one special little boy VERY VERY happy. GREAT JOB!

Published: November 4, 2009 at 2:14 PMMy Grandson has been blind since birth and Disney World is his favorite place on the planet. He brings Mickey with him to help with the action whenever he goes, but this adds another dimension. I know it's a dumb question but does Disney plan to offer the device in Florida in the near future ?
