Rich moms hire handicapped tour guides to get through Disney

Seriously. Rich mothers hired people with disabilities to take them to a line to get through lines faster. I think this is so wrong on multiple levels.

Yes, it's very nice to be able to have a separate line when you are in a wheelchair. Why? Believe it or not, it's hard to wait in line with a bunch of people hitting your chair and regulating the speed of your chair so you don't hit into anybody. It's very crowded and a wheelchair takes up a lot of space. Imagine our family alone - a wheelchair, a stroller, a 6 year old and a husband.

 

Sitting in intense heat isn't good for those with some disabilities. It can be downright life threatening. Having a different access for people with disabilities is also good for more room to transfer in and out of a wheelchair.

Many people are jealous we have separate lines, but what they don't realize is how difficult things are behind the scenes. Being taken care of, taking care of the kids and maneuvering a wheelchair with large amount of people aren't easy tasks. I'd gladly stand in line if that meant I could walk.

The people who were paid to do this are at fault too. They allowed people to abuse the system and possibly ruin the system for others that actually need it.
