New York Post: Rich moms hiring handicapped guides to skip lines at Disney

The New York Post is reporting that some rich New York mothers are hiring handicapped “black market Disney guides” to take to the amusement park so their children can cut lines.

In a story posted Tuesday, the newspaper said the guides from Dream Tours Florida pose as family members in order to skip to the front of lines -- and charge $130 to $1,040 for an eight-hour day.

The newspaper quoted a mom who had hired a guide in a motorized scooter to go with her 1-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter.

“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ -- the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” the mom told the newspaper. “You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge. This is how the 1 percent does Disney.”

Disney allows each guest who needs a wheelchair or motorized scooter to bring up to six guests to a “more convenient entrance.”

Disney did not return repeated requests for comment from the newspaper.
