Disneyland to change access program for disabled
September 23, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

ANAHEIM — Disneyland says disabled guests will no longer go straight to the front of lines after growing abuse of the system.

Disneyland Resort spokeswoman Suzi Brown tells the Orange County Register disabled visitors will be issued tickets with a return time and shorter wait similar to the FastPass system that’s offered to everyone. Currently, they receive expedited access to rides. The new system begins Oct. 9 for guests with park-issued disability cards.

The move is a response to the phenomenon of disabled “tour guides” who charge money, sometimes hundreds of dollars, to accompany able-bodied guests and allow them to avoid long lines.

Some families of children with epilepsy and autism criticized the new program, saying some kids’ disabilities just don’t allow them to wait in regular lines.
