Disney’s Friends for Change

Yesterday, Dr. Jane Goodall presented the Walt Disney Company with the Jane Goodall Global Leadership Award for protecting wildlife and nature. It would be so easy for a company like Disney to say “It’s not my job to save the #8221; After all, they’re an entertainment company! They make movies, run theme parks and hotels, and other fluff. It would be easy to leave the hard work of environmentalism and conservation to the hippies. But that wouldn’t be Disney, would it? If Disney does one thing, and does it well, it’s going over the top and exceeding expectations. Animal Kingdom is a great source of edu-entertainment. But it doesn’t end there.

If you have a child with sensory integration disorder, you know how easily they can become overwhelmed. Activities that stimulate specific senses help them stay calm and relaxed, and provide relief from sensory overload. Not every sensory-friendly activity is appropriate for every child, or every situation. For sensory seekers who crave a spinning motion, here are my top 5 spinning attractions at Disney World: Dumbo the Flying Elephant: This ride is a classic spinning attraction.
