Disneyland Does Not Allow Segways

posted Jan 17, 2012, 12:24 PM by One Stop Mobility   [ updated Sep 18, 2017, 7:00 PM ]

Has anybody ever wondered about taking a Segway to Disneyland? This article might help. 

Taken from www.courthousenews.com by Karina Brown:

'(CN) - As a lawyer for Disneyland defended the park's preference of wheelchairs for the disabled over Segways, the 9th Circuit judges joked about sedan chairs held aloft by porters, as practiced in ancient times.
     Tina Baughman says that muscular dystrophy makes it difficult for her to walk or get up from a seated to a position. She filed suit in 2007 because Disneyland barred the use of her customary Segway, saying she said would need to rent a wheelchair or a four-wheeled scooter to visit the Anaheim, Calif., park.
     The original lawsuit filed in Orange County Superior Court says Baughman has "never" used a wheelchair and that the Americans with Disabilities Act requires companies like Disney to let customers use a "mobility device of choice."
     After the case was removed to federal court, U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney found for Disney in April 2010.
     Baughman had claimed in three prior lawsuits that she was confined to a wheelchair, and two of those resulted in a monetary settlement, Carney noted.
     The judge was not sympathetic to claims that Baughman's lawyer, prominent disabilities rights attorney David Geffen, accidentally used the same language in Baughman's lawsuit as he had used in many other similar cases.
     "The court simply will not allow Ms. Baughman to play fast and loose with the facts," he wrote.
     After granting Disney summary judgment on Baughman's ADA claims, he remanded the remaining allegations to state court.
     Geffen insisted that Baughman has "never used a wheelchair" in oral arguments before the Pasadena-based 9th Circuit last week. "No one who is not in a wheelchair wants to be put in one," he said. "No one who can stand wants to be told to sit."
     Under ADA regulations issued in May, companies must accommodate the use of wheelchairs and "other power-driven mobility devices" in any area open to pedestrians, unless the device creates a safety hazard.
     The Segway is included among "other power-driven mobility devices" in the regulations. Though not designed specifically for people with disabilities, the two-wheel transports have become increasingly popular in the community.
     Geffen said this endorsement is critical since the new regulations emphasize the importance of letting disabled people individually decide what type of mobility device they require. Such decisions should not be left to the whims of a company like Disney, he argued.
     Disney's lawyer, Daniel Fears, argued that Segways are dangerous. With no brakes, no steering wheel and speeds of up to 12 miles per hour, he said they should not be allowed in a theme park often crowded with children and the elderly.
     "And I need not remind the court that the owner of the company fell off a cliff on a Segway and died," Fears said, referring to the September 2010 death of Segway company owner James Heselden, who apparently drove one of the devices off a 30-foot cliff on his estate near London.
     Chief Judge Alex Kozinski pointed out that Segways are used in California's busy Burbank airport, which is "small and crowded, lots of people in a rush, people carrying luggage - and there doesn't seem to be a problem."
     Fears countered that neither Baughman nor the Justice Department has presented evidence that it actually is safe to drive a Segway down Main Street in Disneyland.
     "Assuming a disabled individual could have any mobility device that they preferred, a motorcycle, for instance? And, according to the DOJ, the burden is switched to the company to establish that that motorcycle or other vehicle is unsafe."
     Fears said the law and the Supreme Court mandate that, "as long as we provide her an opportunity for some form of access, like we do thousands of disabled individuals every single year, then the fact that she may have a specific preference for a two-wheeled vehicle - a motorcycle, a bicycle, whatever - her preference does not mean it's necessary for the specific language of the statute."
     The judges interrupted with a different example. "So if you had four people carrying her on a litter, that would comply with the statute," Judge William Fletcher asked.
     "As long as they bought five tickets, right," Judge Alex Kozinski added.
     To the amusement of the panel, Fears said, "That issue is not before the court, but, as long as we provide access to some means for her to go to the park, then, certainly, yes."
     "Unless she claims that there is a certain reason why she needs this specific device like she has a 'sitting disability,' then there is no reason why she shouldn't just use a wheelchair or the seated scooters Disneyland has available," he added.
     Geffen was indignant.
     "Just to be clear, what I heard Disneyland saying is that they want a business entity telling a person what mobility device they can use when they come to their place," he said. "They want to be able to take away a mobility device and say, 'You can use a wheelchair, but you must use our wheelchair. You can use a mobility device, but you must use our own mobility device at Disneyland. You don't want businesses involved in that very, very personal choice of deciding what mobility device best suits somebody's needs."
     Geffen also said that Disney was practicing a double standard when it claimed that Segways were too dangerous for visitor use at the park.
     "Disneyland is the largest purchaser of Segways in the country," Fears said. "Their employees use them in the back lots. They show the device in Tomorrowland and say, "The Segway is the mobility device of the future. It's as natural as walking. And, after an hour of training, you can use a Segway at Disneyland to tour their park.' End Article

Question: Would Disneyland be sued if the Segway's were allowed in the park if one of the little children got hurt or even killed by these up to 12MPH Segways? Just as an FYI most standard scooter is between 4.5-5MPH which is typically around jogging speed. Interesting to think about.

If You Get Stuck At Disneyland - Try This 1st

posted Dec 27, 2011, 1:10 PM by One Stop Mobility   [ updated Sep 18, 2017, 7:08 PM ]

All scooters have a 'Neutral' lever and it usually has a yellow cap on top of the lever to identify it. The best brands used for Disneyland scooter rentals general are Pride Mobility. Most have this yellow capped lever in the back of the scooter, on the base of the scooter, towards the right side. It is very important to follow the next directions step by step or you will not reset the neutral/drive mechanism on the scooter properly.

1) Turn off the scooter and take out the key. (It is not necessary to take out the key but I always have customers do that.)

2) With the person off the scooter move the yellow lever into the forward/upper position. There is usually a sticker icon that identifies 'N' for neutral.

3) You should now be able to push the scooter forwards or backward. If you can 'not' do this then you do not have the lever in the correct position. Try again step 2. Move the scooter forward 1 or 2 feet.

4) After moving the scooter 1-2 feet then push the lever back/down or towards you. They may have a sticker/icon labeled 'D' for Drive or Drive Lock Position. You should NOT be able to push the scooter after it is in Drive Lock position. It does have some play but you should not be able to freely push the scooter.

5) Make sure the speed knob is about halfway between slow and fast.

6) Insert the key and turn it on. BUT WAIT!!! Don't push the throttle yet. Give the scooter 5 seconds or so to boot/startup.

7) Try the throttle - does it work now? If it does - great! You have just reset the brake/neutral system.

If it still does not work then you may have another issue. It could be a faulty brake or a faulty throttle or speed lever. In that case, you would need a switch out from the company.

This is the most basic troubleshooting for a scooter. Most calls are on this than anything else. That's because sometimes Disneyland staff move the scooters aside or out of the way while you are on a ride or if you leave it sitting somewhere in front of other people and sometimes they do not put it back in the drive position for you. Also, rough terrain, brick pavement, or accidentally going off a curb can bump the lever system enough that the metal parts inside are not making contact. Whatever the case, please try this first before calling a company - it will save you time and frustrations.

Thank you all and if you appreciated this post please reply and let us know and we will continue some other posts with regards to troubleshooting for those that have their own scooter and what the 'beeps' mean. If you can not get your own scooter going at least you might know what is wrong or call us and we might be able to fix it on the spot.
