    My friend has a vision issue where it's hard for her to see shows from a distance. What can we do so that she can enjoy the shows like Indiana Jones etc. We have a fp+ but know that doesn't guarantee a close spot. Where is the best area to sit at IJ show?

    Hi, Sheryl!  My husband is a low vision survivor, and there are days where he can't read the giant E on the top of an eye chart.  On those days, we visit Guest Services for a Disability Access Service card.  The card is really best for guests who can't wait in line for attractions, as it allows you to return at a specified time to enjoy an attraction, but for those with visual impairments, it can help castmembers know how to best accommodate this type of disability.

    My husband has always just gone to a cast member and advised them of his vision issues, and they are usually able to find him a spot closer to the stage.  It's especially helpful if you get there early - maybe even earlier in the day - to ask what time the cast members recommend you arrive in order to insure better seating to accommodate your friend.  With the Disability Access Card in hand, with your friend's photo on it, they might write down a time to come back when they can better be prepared to get you to a comfortable seat.  It may be earlier than your FastPass+ return time.  In our experience, if we have a FP+ return time for a 5 PM show, they might ask up to come back at 4:30.  

    Front and center is the best place to enjoy the Indiana Jones show.  You'll be able to see - and feel - all the action from that close!

    Have a wonderful visit!
