They are 1 percenters who are 100 percent despicable.

you know, as a disabled veteran who uses a wheelchair, this is a disgrace! :angry:

having been only a couple months removed from a bowel operation and NPT wanting to ruin my kids vacation, we hired a wheelchair from one of the local wheelchair establishments for about $30 a day.

My stomach had just finished healing and i couldn't walk. still can't walk right so the veterans affairs gave me a walker and a wheelchair.

This breaks my heart because they do allow us to go to the head of the line on say the small world and peter pan ride, but it is a blessing for those of us who are in wheelchairs.

Disgusting, though I expected nothing less. Those who have money don't like to play by the rules.

It's the free market at work. The family gets to skip lines. The disabled person gets a sweet paycheck at the end of the day for hanging out at a theme park.

I guess Disney's going to try hard to paint this one black.

Excuse me good sir but do you seriously fricking believe that the "free market" has no limit for morality or ethics? As a disabled person myself who has cut lines let me tell you something your waiting in line is nothing compared what many (other than myself) disabled people go though. I don't get how they can pose as family members anyway I had to bring documentation with my name on it to prove my genuine disability at euro Disney. I feel for the disabled people "getting a sweet paycheck" for this "job". You THINK ITS FINE FOR DISABLED PEOPLE TO SELL THEIR DISABLED STATUS FOR MONEY! Disgusting, Disgusting.

And a friendly side note to the OP it could be because I am from Europe but to Americans still use the term "handicapped"? It is not offensive but somewhat outdated, we tend to use the word disability as opposed to a person with "cap in hand".

This is a pretty old dodge... It's been going on for years.

Not at Euro Disney I had to prove my disability so.... surely they check the people with the disabled person for ID too?

the people who are saying "monsters!" are the same people who would also cry "monsters" had the couple chosen a regular guide in lieu of a handi-capped guide based on them being selfish.

No - but well done trying to stretch my statement into that.

Yes, I think it's fine that these people exercise their free will to do so.

I didn't stretch anything I inferred it based on your statement, would you also see no problem in me hiring a black person to stand in front of me and shade me from the sun at the beach since their skin absorbs sunlight (UV rays etc) better? You shouldn't as a disabled person feel the need to use you free will to market your medical status its exploitation its akin to only having "blacks" around as maids but never as friends them people wouldn't choose to take a disabled child for example or on their trip with them would they? The only reason they wish to be around people like me is to use us.

I suppose that white people are UV-transparent where you come from? Perhaps when they're stretched very thin?

When you remove the veneer of "we're one great jolly team", that's basically what most forms of employment boil down to.

Calm down. Most of us think it's not ok. But surely the disabled in the article have their reasons, and probably think there's nothing wrong with it.

Funny thing about moral & ethics is they're mostly personal/cultural, and have no rules set in stone.

Amusing but the point was there regardless of basis in fact if I hired a blind person/white person etc etc etc for the experience of hanging out with a blind, white or Chinese person or whatever, and to gain perks off that, it should be considered just as reprehensible and racistism/discrimination in the case of the disabled.

NO NO NO and no would you. Imagine they days of slavery and hiring Minstrel entertainers.... or hiring someone to talk about being black/ anything else normal to you.

Yes I shall I'm just shocked TBH, to me it would be like hiring a Chinese person to talk about their ancestors or something (something totally normal to Chinese having lots of ancestors) it would be embarrassing and not a skill its hiring someone for not who but what they are.....

Went to 6 Flags with my friends. Had an "ankle brace" and rented a wheelchair for the day ($25). Went on all the rides with barely waiting all day. At the end of the day returned wheelchair and got $20 back. $5 fast pass :)

Now you're missing the stronger argument. These "rich folk" are employing the disabled people not really to hang out with them, but just to skip lines. The fact that they get to spend a day out, not do anything particularly strenuous, get handed a big paycheck, and maybe get treated nicely for the look of the thing are completely secondary to being used for some physical attribute.

Then again, we have cases where employability is contingent on some physical parameter in an acceptable fashion. It's like hiring tall people to play basketball, or short people to play dwarves in movies. They get "used" because of what they are, and get cut a paycheck in the end. I guess you'd get an aneurysm if you think about human clinical trials that exploit a subset of people based solely on their having a particular condition (yes, among medical advances, there have also been most egregious crimes), both for new pharmaceutical therapies, as well as limb augmentations for amputees.

The guide is also to blame.

Also to blame is Disney for allowing too many people in to the attraction park thus creating the long ques.

I remember as a child going to Alton Towers in 1982 with my school.

The ques where literally miles long and a wait of nearly one to one and a half hours for a ride.

I can't be arsed to wait so I went on the big slide and had heaps more fun, with the other children that could not be arsed to wait.

next time I go to disneyland, i'd expect to have to verify my disability which in all actuallity a touchy subject with HIPAA laws.

I think just shutting this mess down, the fraudulent service will work
