    My son has 2 yo and have epilepsy. Is there caution signs for the attraction for people with that condition? (Eg. Lighting flashes) thanks!

    Hi Cristina!

    The Walt Disney World Resort understands that some Guests may have special circumstances that may limit their ability to enjoy certain attractions.  Unfortunately, since all Guests are different, there is no official list of attractions that may cause issues for Guests with lighting sensitivity, and therefore, those warnings are not specifically posted.

    That being said, I spoke with Disability Services over the phone, and they suggested that you contact them directly by email at disability.services@disneyparks.com.  They should be able to give you information about the attractions that may be an issue.  If you have any questions or concerns while at the parks, you can always ask the Cast Members at the attraction entrances before entering the queue.

    Although special lighting and visual effects are used in many of the shows and attractions throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, one of the attractions that may be a problem that immediately comes to mind is Avatar Flight of Passage.  There are some strobe lighting effects during this attraction that do not last for long, but they are fairly intense.  There are also some slower lighting effects in Space Mountain and sometimes flashing lights in Star Tours - The Adventures Continue.  On many of the attractions, you will see flashes when attraction photos are taken, so make sure you also keep that in mind.  These flashes are particularly bright in Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.  You may want to check out the full list of attractions and the list of attractions with health advisories to help you make the best decision!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
