Disney 'disabled' caught taking the Mickey
Disney is changing the rules that allow disabled people to skip the queues, after it emerged that wealthy, able-bodied visitors had been abusing the system.
Under the current policy, those with special needs are given quick access to rides and other attractions. However, the company now says the scheme has proven "problematic". From next month, it will instead offer disabled people reservation times for each ride.
The move comes after it emerged visitors had hired disabled "black-market Disney guides". Guides would pose as family members, meaning clients could skip queues. Until now, Disney has let anyone with a wheelchair bring six guests to a ride's backdoor entrance.
