Disneyland Paris just announced that several locations around the resort are now equipped with audio description.
The AudioSpot mobile application and in-park installations provide audio-description information to visually impaired and blind visitors about their environment such as:
⁃ Audio description of attractions in Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park
⁃ Audio description of atmosphere and interactive audio menus in restaurants at Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park
⁃ Synchronized audio description of Mickey and the Magician show at Animagique Theater
The audio-description is the result of the combined work of Accessibility, Entertainment and Walt Disney Imagineering teams.
AudioSpot currently offers native French and English audio recordings. All audio tracks were recorded in Disneyland Paris’s own studios.
The audio content provides information about the surrounding environment and can be automatically translated into 11 other languages – Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Catalan, Arabic and Danish – based on the default language settings on a park goers smartphone.
The new Marvel Avengers Campus has been equipped with audio description in its restaurants, attractions and Hero Training Center.

Disneyland Paris also implemented French Sign Language and chansigne in select resort entertainment.
