Report: Wealthy visitors avoid long lines at Disney World
Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (WSVN) -- Disney World officials are investigating reports of wealthy visitors hiring disabled people to pose as relatives to avoid long wait times.
The debate began after an article was published on the New York Post's website.
The article quoted a mom who said, "My daughter waited one minute to get on It's a Small World, the other kids had to wait two and a half hours. This is how the one percent do Disney."
On its website, Dream Tours Florida states: "Your guide will provide significantly reduced wait times through the parks a special entrance to fast pass lines."
The owner of the company that provides the service declined to comment.
However, someone on the company's Facebook page, responded to the flood of harsh comments. One response said: "This article has no validity and is based on discrimination. We do many wonderful things for the special needs community."
Disney World officials said they will thoroughly investigate those claims.
