Disabled Guests Will No Longer Enjoy Shorter Wait Times

This is why we can't have nice things.

Disneyland announced recently that guests suffering from disabilities will not have the privilege to cut lines anymore. A longstanding rule once allowed guests with a handicap pass to skip long wait times, so that they might not have to endure pain or an aggravated condition.

Unfortunately, it was rather easy to obtain these passes. It became common practice for parents without disabled children to hire kids with obvious physical limitations as a child or playdate friend, so that their kids could abuse the system. Even more common was the exercise of lying about an internal disability, that might prevent one from standing around for extended periods of time. As no medical papers or tests were required, it was easy for kids to obtain these passes, forcing actually handicapped guests to wait even longer than necessary.

Maybe they'll bring the handicap pass back, but for now it seems that those suffering from diseases or disabilities will have to wait in line with the rest of us.
