Rich Parents Are Using Handicapped Tour Guides to Avoid Lines at Disney World

The lines at Disney Land can be pretty brutal, especially during school holidays.

But it turns out if you have enough cash you can assure your child will jump right on Splash Mountain, no matter what time of the year.

According to the New York Post, wealthy Manhattanites are hiring handicapped tour guides when they take their kids to Orlando. The guides then pose as family members, since Disney allows those with disabilities (and up to six “family” members) to cut to the front of the line.

“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” one mom bragged to the newspaper.

The disabled guides are hired through groups such as Hollywood Dream Tours. The brokers charge $130 an hour, or $1,040 for the day.

While this might seem like a lot, it’s actually a bargain compared to Disney’s official VIP service, which runs over $300 an hour.

What do you think? Are these black market handicapped tour guides proof that the one percent just doesn’t get it? Or is it just an example of capitalism at play?
