Access 2 Card: Toronto Zoo

I am part of Perkopolis and bought my tickets from them. I think it says on the site that you should purchase at least 24 hours in advance so it gives Perkopolis a chance to process the tickets and send to you. I opted for the electronic version of course as it doesn’t make sense to pay for more for tickets when I can show it on my phone or even print it out at home. I got my tickets pretty much right away within an hour. We took the kids there for March break this year but didn’t get a chance to blog about it till now.

The Toronto Zoo participates in the Access 2 program with Easter Seals Canada. The Access2 program provides a dignified and positive entertainment experience for people with disabilities who require the support of an attendant. Program participants receive Access 2 wallet cards which allow simple identification, removing the onus to explain their need for an attendant. All we did was showed the Access 2 card and there was no questions asked.  The cardholder or person with disability receives 50% admission discount while their support worker receives complimentary admission. JB at the time was only 2, and 2 and under is free. We just had to pay for one adult and one kid plus parking which was 12 bucks. It was a great activity for March break on a dime. Kids loved it there and we likely will go back next year for either March break or summer. JB enjoyed the large outdoor area to roam. Only complaint was it was cold the day we went but we bundled up. Of course it was very busy for March break but since the zoo is so big it wasn’t a factor. We got to see the pandas before they left.
