Disabled Perks at Universal Studios?

My younger brother has autism, and most theme parks we go to have a pass where you can skip most of the line or all of it, Such as disney, the disabled/wheelchair pass. At this point my family is pretty spoiled about waiting, and he has it 10 times worse. We are thinking of going somewhere this summer and we all live in FL. My autistic brother loves shrek and popeye, so I was thinkig of going to islands of adventure/ universal studios, since we have never been there. But there is no point in going because it will turn out horrible if he is complaining the whole time about waiting. (He thinks that 10 minutes is a long time…) Does anyone know if they have these, if we need to bring some medical papers to prove it (which we have) and how many people it can get through? (at disney it gets up to 6 people in with him)

Answer #1

Here is what I found:

Convenient access for all our guests with disabilities. Many rides, shows, attractions, escalators and parking structures are designed to comfortably accommodate guests in a wheelchair or guests with other disabilities depending on their condition. There are designated guests-with-disabilities entrances for all our attractions in the park; don’t hesitate to ask for more information.

At the Guest Services window, we provide detailed printed informational guides for persons with disabilities. Assistant listening devices and TDD phones for the hearing impaired are also provided at Guest Relations. Wheelchair and stroller rentals are available in the park for a $7 charge.


Answer #2

Disability at Universal Studies…..I was at Universal studios Aug 2,3 and 4th 2011. I am 59 years old disablied military veteran and social security disablied. I have a bad right leg which prevents me from walking long distances and limited mnovement. I went to the guest service ( Aug 4th )and asked the gentleman if they had any type of fast lane for disablied people. He stated if I wanted a fast lane pass I would have to purchase one at the park. I explained to him about my leg and he kind of like what ever with his face. I was really disapointed but just as I started to leave he then stated even though I would have to wait they did have a pass to wait no longer than 30 minutes. Wow what a surprise since he could have just said this at first. I gave him my disability id and he got on the computer and did the process. Gave me the card and folks it really helped. Just a note: Universal Studio is a good place to visit and fun but guest services need schooling on how to treat people with disability. He was just plain rude or as far as I was concerned a jerk. Disability people deserve better and do these people understand how we keep our freedom in the United States-Service Members and Veterans.
