Article Alleges Wealthy Disney World Guests Using Disabled Tour Guides to Hop Ride Lines

Disney World allows families with a special needs child to jump to the front of lines for rides.

But of course, someone found a way to take advantage of the system so the rich could skip waiting in line.

The New York Post reports that wealthy parents are hiring disabled tour guides to let them jump to the head of the line. Disney Parks have a policy of allowing disabled guests, and any people with them to go to the head of the line.

According to the post this is how the rich families "do Disney." One mother said, "My daughter waited one minute to get on 'It's a Small World'; the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours. This is how the one percent do Disney."

The woman said she hired a company called Dream Tours in the Post article.

Dream Tours has not responded to requests for an interview.

It did release this statement on its website: "Due to inaccurate press and slander, Dream Tours is not offering VIP tours at this time. Our focus has primarily always been providing magical vacations for adults with special needs and helping their dreams to come true".

Disney responded with this statement: "It is unacceptable to abuse accommodations that were designed for guests with disabilities. We are thoroughly reviewing the situation and will take appropriate steps to deter this type of activity".
