Disney to use sign language for parade

Hearing-impaired visitors to the Shanghai Disney Resort can now “hear” the daytime parade.

Sign language services have been available in shows and performances across the resort, including Frozen: A Sing-Along Celebration at Evergreen Playhouse and Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular at El Teatro Fandango.

Yesterday, International Day of Sign Languages, the resort expanded the service to Mickey’s Storybook Express.

This parade features a dedicated viewing area in Disney•Pixar Toy Story Land, where sign language specialists interpret the fun phrases and lyrics sung by Disney characters as they pass by on their floats.

Visitors can enquire about the service and book through the Shanghai Disney Resort website, the resort’s reservation center and guest services locations across the resort.

“I am honored to be able to continue Disney’s long legacy of delivering magical experiences for all with the addition of this latest sign language service at Mickey’s Storybook Express,” said Joe Schott, president and general manager at the resort. “Since day one, Shanghai Disney Resort has been committed to fostering an accessible environment for all, and we hope that this week’s unique celebration will further raise awareness of the importance of inclusivity in all aspects of our lives.”

The resort’s first Sign Language Week kicked off on Monday and will last until Sunday.

Over the period, visitors to the resort will have a variety of opportunities to learn Chinese sign language with their friends, family and Disney cast members, with the launch of the Learn Sign Language with Us stall in Disneytown.
