According to a story in the Orlando Sentinel, a U.S. District Judge has ruled in 45 cases that Disney made sufficient accommodations for people with autism. The plaintiff had the same opportunities to experience Walt Disney World as other visitors, she ruled in summary judgments, without a trial.
Andy Dogali represents the plaintiffs in the cases, many of them children who are only identified by their initials. He alleges in his appeal that judge Conway favored Disney on issues of fact that should have been subject to trial. He has filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals and states he has shown “extensive evidence that Disney intentionally discriminated … deceptive manipulation of disabled guests, concealment of fraudulent wait times, concealment of discrimination through deliberate ruses and covers.”
A Disney spokesperson stated, “Disney Parks have an unwavering commitment to providing an inclusive and accessible environment for all our guests, and we fully comply with all ADA requirements.”
