The new changes to Disney’s disability rules go into effect today throughout Disney Parks.  These changes are coming after allegations that a company allowed people to hire a handicapped tour guide to zip their family to the front of their line at Disney Parks

A letter from Disney said:

“Unfortunately, our current program for providing access to attractions for guests with disabilities has been abused and exploited to such an extent that we are no longer able to effectively sustain it in its present form.”

This new program which goes into effect today will act similar to a Fastpass, in that you will be given a time to return back to the attraction.

Disney will be fine-tuning these new rules and each disability will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

A lot of guests are upset about these new changes, calling them unfair to the people who actually have disabilities, do you agree?
