Moms Paying The Handicapped To Skip Disney Lines?

Posted: Updated:

(FOX 11 / FOX News) Forget the FastPasses. Apparently the secret to skipping the long lines at Disney World is to hire a disabled person. 

The New York Post is reporting that some deep-pocketed New York City moms are hiring a motorized scooter-bound guide to pose as a family member so they and their kids can jump to the front of the lines.

According to the report, families book tours through an outfit called Dream Tours in Florida, which on its website claims to provide "quality based, memorable, and affordable vacations, to people with special needs."  The Disney guide charges $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day, citing a Manhattan mom who claims she hired a tour guide using a motorized scooter.

"You can't go to Disney without a tour concierge,'' she told the Post. "This is how the 1 percent does Disney."

The mom said that a guide using a motorized scooter escorted her, and her husband and their two sons around the theme park and were able to immediately go onto rides while others waited for hours.

Disney allows each guest who needs a wheelchair or motorized scooter to bring up to six guests to a "more convenient entrance."

The New York mother indicated that Jacie Christiano --who works at Dream Tours and is the girlfriend of the tour company owner, Ryan Clement--was the family's guide. Clement told the Post that Christiano doesn't use her disability to bypass lines and says that she has an auto-immune disorder.
