Virtual Disney World
Google Earth now offers a 3D virtual tour of Disney World in Florida. It's possible to explore four of the Disney theme parks and some of the hotels as well.
Why is this significant?
Now it's possible to preview Disney World with students who benefit from previewing. For some kids, the ability to preview helps promote positive behaviors and helps ease transitions. Kids on the Autism Spectrum or kids with cognitive disabilities may benefit from preparation beforehand. And exploring Disney World virtually may help families anticipate challenges or strategize their visit to make the experience pleasurable for all.
Share this information with your student's families so they can explore this feature especially if they are planning a Disney trip in the near future.
What do you think? Do you think this is a feature that can benefit families?
