A Disney stage show with assisted listening and wheelchair-friendly ziplines are just some of what’s on offer in Florida with Ocean Florida
There may come a day when ‘accessible holidays’ will simply be called holidays, but until then, customers with disabilities looking to take a break face hurdles that can be daunting for agents. At Ocean Florida, trained staff make the experience of booking an accessible Florida package a painless, straightforward process for both agents and their customers.
All Ocean Florida’s holidays are created with individual customers’ needs in mind, starting with the support of a UK airport meet-and- greet ambassador who’ll ensure a flying start to your clients’ holiday.
The Ocean Florida team has detailed knowledge of airports’ and airlines’ accessibility services. For example, they know that Miami airport has multisensory rooms to offer customers with disabilities a more peaceful environment.
When it comes to accessible accommodation, the team will make sure there’s something that’s perfect for your client, whether it’s widened doorways, walk-in showers and hoist-entry pools; audio alarms, sound amplifiers and visual alarms; or autism-certified hotels with low‑sensory areas and trained staff.
Their knowledge of attractions encompasses accessible sailing in Biscayne Bay to wheelchair‑friendly ziplining over alligators, via wheelchair-accessible beaches, a Disney stage show with assisted listening system, and low‑sensory attractions for children with autism.
Ocean Florida staff members understand that getting the right information is key to ensuring the perfect accessible holiday, and they get that information from the experts – their customers. Using detailed questionnaires and conversations with you and your client, they’ll help you put together a holiday that you’ll both be 100% happy with.
Ocean Florida’s holistic approach, plus its attention to detail on both visible and hidden disabilities, is why it’s a member of The Sunflower Network. While Ocean Florida knows there is still work to be done, it’s committed to replacing your client’s Florida holiday challenges with magical lifetime memories.
