Disney Launches First Ever Line of Halloween Costumes for Wheelchair Users
Want to hear something scary? Halloween is just over nine weeks away.
However in what might be the best news to come out of 2020, Disney is here to make sure this year our favourite holiday is one that everyone can look forward to thanks to its new line of adaptable costumes for wheelchair users.
Featuring wheelchair cover sets and easy-access features for children bound to wheelchairs, the clothing range includes all our favourite Disney characters including an Incredibles 2 suit, a Buzz Lightyear costume and a Cinderella dress.
What's more, they are all designed to accommodate wheelchair users thanks to stretchy fabric, simple flap openings for easy tube access and longer length inseams for seated uses.
"Your Space Ranger's imagination will take flight to infinity and beyond while wearing this adaptive Buzz Lightyear Costume," Disney wrote in the description of the costume.
"Featuring the intergalactic essentials to defeat Emperor Zurg, including gloves, this dress-up treat has an opening at the back and discreet front opening with a flap."

Perhaps the coolest part of the whole collection are the wheelchair cover sets which allow you to transform your mobility aid into Cinderella's coach or the Incredimobile, and we reckon they'll have so much more room for all your sweets too.
The covers fit over standard wheelchairs with 24-inch wheels and have supportive piping for added structure. Just keep in mind that Disney has advised the wheelchair must be operated with a helper when the costume is attached, and that it's not to be used with battery-powered wheelchairs.
But just look how great it looks:

Prices start at around £39, but currently the range is only available on the US shopDisney.com store.
They do deliver to the UK for an extra fee though, so we recommend getting your order in now so you're all set for the big day.
