Back in May, a reportcame out that rich people were hiring DISABLED PEOPLE to escort them around Disney World and Disneyland . . . because disabled people are allowed to skip the lines for rides.
Apparently it's been going on forever, but Disney was always afraid to address it or change their policies . . . because, you know, it looks REALLY BAD if you start making life HARDER on the handicapped.
But once the report came out, Disney didn't really have a choice. So they've announced they're officially changing their policies. As of October 9th, there won't be a special pass for disabled people and their friends to skip lines anymore.
Disabled people WILL get a pass, but it will work like a FastPass . . . they'll get a time to report back to the ride where they can skip the line. And they can only get one of those passes at a time. Also, the disabled person in your group HAS to ride the ride.
Obviously, this sounds kind of harsh . . . but Disney had to do something because of MORALLY BANKRUPT people abusing the system.
It wasn't just rich people abusing it either . . . if you requested a disability pass, Disney couldn't legally ask you WHY you needed one, so they'd basically have to give one to anyone who asked, and let anyone skip the lines.
