Rich moms hire handicapped tour guides to bypass lines at Disneyland

Stashed in: Disney!, Awesome, Jerk Store

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” crowed one mom, who hired a disabled guide through Dream Tours Florida.

The woman said she hired a Dream Tours guide to escort her, her husband and their 1-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter through the park in a motorized scooter with a “handicapped” sign on it. The group was sent straight to an auxiliary entrance at the front of each attraction. “You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge,’’ she sniffed. “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.”


... but oh so hilarious.

Make-a-wish becomes Make-a-buck ? lmao

At first I thought it was terrible for rich people to exploit disabled people.

But now I realize this is a way for disabled people to make good money.

It still seems wrong, mostly because of the ethics of having to make everyone else wait in line because of a clever hacking of the rules of Disneyland.

The ethical way to make money is by creating and exploiting a value proposition. This one has net zero value, as it creates value for one party at the expense of another. In so doing, it sends the wrong message to the "workers"—handicapped or not.

A job isn't justified simply on the basis that it's a job. It's important that its performance does some good for society. Otherwise, working for the Mafia, a drug cartel, an oil company, Google, Apple, pandawhale and the Gates Foundation would all be equivalent.

Good point, and thanks for mentioning PandaWhale between Google, Apple, and Gates.
