A Toronto city councillor has asked the province to allow visitors to take a look at the ride at Toronto’s green park.
Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker made the request on Monday after a viewer posted a video of the attraction at the park.
It was created by the animation company Disney Imagineering.
De Baekmaeker, who represents the riding of Mississauga-Danforth, has asked to be exempted from the requirement that visitors to the park be 21 and over.
He noted the park’s green building is the same size as the park itself.
The park also includes a giant glass aquarium.
De Balme, who chairs the public works and infrastructure committee, said he wants to see the park open up to everyone, including the elderly and the disabled.
“It’s important that people who are disabled are able to experience this attraction in the park,” De Baesmaeker said.
“The fact that people are allowed to ride the ride is a good sign.”
The ride is called Disney’s Magical Journey and includes characters such as Snow White, Cinderella and Ariel.
Disney Imagineers is not affiliated with the park, but has partnered with the city to build and operate it.
DeBaeremaek said the ride could be an opportunity for children and seniors to see what it’s like to be in a magic show environment.
“This is a great way to engage the young crowd,” he said.
Disney says it will be a permanent attraction and that it will not be closed down.
In the meantime, De Baesemek said, he hopes to see it expand to include a larger park.
The parks director of operations, David Roesch, said the park will continue to operate as planned and will look to add new attractions over the coming months.
He said Disney has not decided whether it will continue operating at the existing location, but would likely open another park in Toronto.
