AMC Theater in Downtown Disney offers "Sensory Friendly" Movies for Autistic Guests

Kudos to Walt Disney World and AMC Theaters for offering "sensory friendly" films for guests with autism. This program was initiated by a parent of an autistic child in Columbia, Maryland, who requested the changes specifically designed for children with autism. More than 300 parents and children attended that screening.

During a "sensory friendly" showing, theater lights are turned up, sound is reduced and audience members are welcome to get up and move about during the film.

The following is the a list of "sensory friendly" films that will be shown at AMC Downtown Disney 24 (Walt Disney World Resort). All shows take place at 10 a.m. (Dates and films subject to change).

Finding Nemo - September 22

Frankenweenie - October 13

Wreck-It Ralph - November 10

Rise of the Guardians - December 8
