I’m Usa-chan, the “wheelchair x beauty” funny x model! In DisabilityLog, as a SNS influencer, I hope to provide lots of useful information for people with disabilities. I will also enjoy providing information about beauty, travel, sightseeing, music, photography, and other hobbies.
This time, we in wheelchairs went to “Disney Sea” because we were going during “Halloween” with the new “LinaBelle” character and because we could go at a discount with the “Event Excitement Discount.
The fashion for the day was a JK-style outfit in pink and white.
I also bought a catsuit in a different color from the girl I went with to match my outfit.
I had never been there during Halloween and was looking forward to seeing the people around me in costumes and such.
Trick or treat!
Give me some candy or I’ll be naughty!!!!
From the station, after arriving at Maihama Station, we took the Disney Resort Line to “Disney Sea”. At the end, we took a picture of the classic globe and left.
Land is directly accessible from the station.
Drawing for the show
Even now, Disney’s shows were only open to those who won a drawing, through an app on their phones.
It is on the app, but from what I have heard, it is gone by August 2022 or so.
In its place is “Disney Premier Access.”
This is a paid service that allows Guests to make time-specific reservations for facilities in the Parks to meet their needs.
Purchased via the Tokyo Disney Resort App after entering the park, guests can use the facilities at the designated times with shorter waiting times.
They are required to enter through the Priority Access Entrance.
You can ride rides earlier by charging additional money to purchase tickets that give you priority to ride attractions.
If you are going with more than one person, you may want to create a group as described in the previous article to ensure a smooth day in the park.
If you read the QR code in the app and “scan” it for yourself and for the person you are going with, it will show “confirmed ● tickets” and you can tap there to get multiple tickets, so it is convenient to take multiple people’s tickets together using only one person’s smartphone account.
So we drew lots for the Disney shows, but all of them were missed, so we were not able to see the shows at the specified times.
However, a cast member told us that for “Big Band Beat – A Special Treat” early in the morning from 10:55 a.m., “if you line up, you can get in and see the show in order of first-come-first-served”, so we got in line at least 15 minutes before and were able to see the show.
The Broadway Music Theatre dancers, they were very cool.

How to spend a day
Some of you might want to know how much wheelchair users move around.
By keeping track of what adventures I have had in the past, it makes it easier for me to plan what I want to do the next time I go.
Other times, it’s a record so that I can tell the people who go with me about the rides and experiences I’ve had.

What are you doing with the batteries in your wheelchair?
If we went around all day, the batteries in our electric wheelchairs would run out halfway through the day.
When they ran out, we had to push the wheelchair from behind ourselves.
This is very difficult when you are on a hill, or when you are carrying heavy luggage, or when you are tired from going around too many places.
Because of this past experience, we put a spare battery for the wheelchair in the luggage compartment in the back.
In fact, we spoke with another electric wheelchair user who went to Disney, and he also mentioned that he has two batteries.
It would be great if they could charge their electric wheelchair batteries while they are eating or otherwise in the Disney parks.
We cannot take the batteries out ourselves because we do not have a good grip and the batteries are heavy. So, after riding the attractions, if we had zero batteries, we could ask a cast member to replace the “electric wheelchair battery in the back” for the rest of the day.
We try to be careful not to travel too extensively and choose our route so that we don’t have to take a long way route and stop at attractions, stores, etc.
We were able to go out with other wheelchair users and ride the Disney attractions.
This time, it was from 9:00 to 21:00, so we had a lot of time to get around.
I would be happy if this information is helpful for you when you go out to Disney theme parks with a wheelchair user.
Next time, I would like to talk about “DAS”, “Disney’s first discount for the disabled”, “the need for baggage checks”, and other topics that you may be interested in.
