Orlando Park News has reported that Disney will soon be offering braille menus at select restaurants. The update from Disney is as follows:

"Beginning March 1, 2014, additional services will become available to Guests with visual disabilities to enhance their enjoyment of food & beverage locations at the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Braille menus will be available at select food & beverage locations at each theme park and will be provided to Guests upon request.

Please note that Braille menus provide examples of menu items, but may not reflect all short-term, temporary or daily menu items. Menu reading assistance continues to be available at all food & beverage locations at domestic Disney Parks and Resorts. Upon a Guest’s request, Cast will read the menu, including the entire menu.

Guests with visual disabilities can obtain additional information about services, such as Braille Guides and Audio Description devices, by visiting Guest Relations. Information, including parade and show times and details about restaurant menus, is also available by calling 407-827-7935. Additionally, the “Guide for Guests with Disabilities” provides a detailed overview of the services and facilities available for all Guests with disabilities. It is available at guidemap distribution locations within all Theme Parks, as well as Guest Relations, Resort Lobby Concierge, Disney Vacation Planner booths and Wheelchair rental locations."
