Rich People and Liars Ruin Disneyland for the Disabled

Just as they do everything, rich people and entitled liars have tarnished Disneyland for everyone today with their disgusting and pitiful greed. Is nothing sacred? No, nothing is sacred.

Back in May the internet was briefly taken with a story about how rich people, eager to buy a leg up in literally every facet of their lives, were hiring disabled men and women to escort them through Disney theme parks. Disabled guests and their families had long been allowed to take advantage of line-skipping opportunities at Disney rides via special entrances, and so wealthy people were paying up to $130 an hour for handicapped "tour guides" to help speed things up. "My daughter waited one minute to get on 'It's a Small World,'" said one truly reprehensible parent at the time, "the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours. ... This is how the 1 percent does Disney."

Well, that was how the 1 percent did Disney, because today Disney announced it is putting the kibosh on its policy of allowing disabled visitors to skip lines. Amid widespread reports that wealthy people and able-bodied people—Disney did not require guests to prove they were handicapped—were abusing the disability policy, Disney has decided to do away with it. Reports KRON 4, "Starting October ninth, guests with a new disability access card will be issued a ticket with a time to enter an attraction, based on the current wait time, so they don’t have stand in line."

It's a cold world after all.
