New Wheelchair Display in Epcot

New Wheelchair Display in Epcot celebrates Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. Creation Shop opened last September, and when it did, there was a window displaying of a model that was using a hearing aid. This may not sound like a big deal, but if you are a person who uses hearing aids you do not see yourself reflected in media, or in advertising very often. With that being said, Disney is trying very hard to become more inclusive to everyone, and that includes those not often reflected in display models.

You can understand then why we are writing about a new mannequin on display at Creation Shop over in Epcot, that shows a person in a wheelchair. I personally have many friends who use wheelchairs and for them to be represented in advertising, or in a daily scene, is a move to be more inclusive. It doesn’t solve everything, it doesn’t fix years of not seeing themselves reflected, but it is a step in the right direction.

You can see the New Wheelchair Display at the entrance to Creation Shop on the backside closest to World Showcase. The model is in the display cabinet at eye level. Below you can read more about how Disney is trying to be more inclusive to everyone.

At Disney, inclusion is for everyone. We reimagine tomorrow as our way of amplifying underrepresented voices and untold stories as well as championing the importance of accurate representation in media and entertainment.

The Walt Disney Company’s goal for a reimagined tomorrow demands transparency and accountability. From our people and culture to our content and experiences, we are working together to translate our intentions into actions.

The more our consumers worldwide are reflected in our workforce, the better we’re able to serve them authentically. When our employees perceive that Disney culture supports their professional development and advancement, they can be authentic, contribute freely, and take pride in our company.
