singemfrc Posted June 1, 2013 Share Posted June 1, 2013 ^^^ In that story, the woman said she had "knee and back problems", the man refused to disclose what his disability was. It's also worth noting that you don't need to be rich to hire these people..the man was charging $200/hr but the woman was charging only $50/hr. Clearly there's a good reason that people with certain disabilities should not be made to stand in a line or if they're in a wheelchair or similar conveyance they may not be able to move through the normal que, but having them not have to spend any time waiting doesn't seem right to me either, and I've been one of them. (My mother is legimiately disabled and I've spent a day at disneyland skipping all the lines like the people mentioned above..I didn't like it. Even though we had a legitimate reason I still felt bad, and the rides lost a lot of their "disney magic" for me not going through the que at all) What if there were a system similar to the Q-Bot system that Six Flags uses (or heck Im sure Disney could have a modified version of their fast pass system) wherein your disabled pass could reserve you a virtual spot in line so that you waited the same amount of time as other folks, but could do so comfortably elsewhere and still use an alternative entrance if need be? (Obviously this doesnt apply to the Make A Wish folks - those should definitely always deserve to skip all lines) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
