Although the venue is composed of almost entirely flat ground, EDC Orlando takes place on grassy terrain, which can be bumpy and dusty. There are also areas of asphalt parking lot, which are smooth and easily traversed.
Insomniac welcomes all, and we strive to make our environment accessible to our guests with disabilities. During the festival, the venue will feature accessible parking, restrooms, and other amenities, as well as designated areas for wheelchair users and their companions.
General Parking for the event is Extremely Limited. General Parking will cost $30, and each lot will have a limited amount of Accessible parking spaces for those displaying valid ADA license plates or hang tags.
Note: It is against the law to park in an accessible parking space without the required ADA credentials or to fraudulently use someone else’s credentials to gain access to ADA parking spots.
An accessible lane will be located at each festival entry point. Once inside the venue, look for the Access Center (noted on the festival map), which is staffed by personnel who can answer any accessibility questions, as well as provide your wristband for all accessible viewing platforms.
