Manhattan mom pays to hire disabled person to skip lines at Disney World

Ok…  Admit it, we all wish we could skip those pesky 60+ minute waits at the theme parks.  And some of us have even had the privilege perhaps of attending a theme park with a disabled family member and getting that quick access to our favorite theme park attraction.  This lady though took it a step further, and in my book, a step too far.  She hired a “black-market Disney guides” which will run you $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.

The lady hired one of these “guides” to take her, her husband, her 1-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter through the Disney parks on a motorized scooter with a handicapped sign on it.  Disney has VIP tours, they cost $310 to $380 per hour.  So not only is this “black-market Disney guide” process more efficient, it is cheaper too.

“Who wants a speed pass when you can use your black-market handicapped guide to circumvent the lines all together?” she said.

I have noticed over recent years, more and more parks are switching to have more accessible wheelchair queue lines, take the Forbidden Journey Harry Potter ride for example, it is entirely wheelchair accessible, so even if you have a wheelchair, you still have to wait in line.

What do you think?  Do you think this lady is wrong for hiring a disabled person to basically use them for their disability.  I think so.
