More on Amusement Parks and People with Amputations

Following up on this post from earlier today, I came across this article from earlier this week about Disneyland Paris.  It begins:
Limb Difference charities in Europe are calling on Disneyland and other theme park operators to clarify their policies on safety and discrimination after several young people with limb disabilities were banned from rides.

EDRIC (European Dysmelia Reference Information Centre), which operates DysNet, a globally-focused limb-difference online network, has been contacted by two of its member charities, Reach in the UK and Assedea in France, after several disabled youngsters were prevented from riding roller-coasters because they had missing limbs.

In one case, a young girl, twice refused entry to a ride, was permitted to go on after she and her parents visited customer services to be registered as a disabled passenger.
