Queue & seating information for Canada Far & Wide
The wheelchair entrance is very narrow and goes over a wooden bridge walkway. The waiting area is a room with a fairly low ceiling that’s longer than it is wide. The walls and floor are dark colored and the area is dimly lit. It can feel tight inside. In the theater, there are no seats, but there are rails to lean on. You can stay in your wheelchair or stand for the show.
Tip: Guests using wheelchairs and ECVs can park anywhere in the theater, but we’ve found that it works best to be in the ‘back’ of the round theater. That allows you to see the majority of the theater screens without a lot of head turning, and you may be able to avoid people standing right in front of you. The area where the live cast member introduces the film is the ‘front’. Even though the film occurs all around you, the most important action takes place toward the front.
More details about the experience of Canada Far & Wide
CircleVison 360° films wrap around the walls of the circular theaters. You can turn around to see panoramic images all around you. Even though the theater does not move, the movie all around gives the feeling of movement. This can be disorienting because what you see is telling your brain that you’re moving, while other parts of your body are telling your brain that you’re standing still. This can be disorienting, and can cause motion sickness. Those who don’t normally have this issue may still experience it. If you feel queasy or off-balance it might help to hold on to the rails and look down for a moment until you feel better.
