Florida Company Accused of Offering Tours Led by Disabled Guides, Designed to Skip Long Lines

Posted: Updated:

A New York Post story claims that some people have found a way to skip the lines at Disney World, by hiring disabled guides.

The reports says people are willing to pay up to $1,040 a day to the black market network that helps network the guides.

Disney says, "It's unacceptable to abuse accommodations that were designed for guests with disabilities."

Dream Tours is the company accused of offering these tours.

They released a statement saying, "Due to inaccurate press and slander, dream tours is not offering vip tours at this time. Our focus has primarily always been providing magical vacations for adults with special needs and helping their dreams to come true."

It's not clear how often the accused practice may have been taking place.

Disney, itself, offers VIP tours and Fast-Pass service for an additional cost so people can avoid long lines.

This story exploded on the social media scene today, and we'll have reactions from around northern Michigan tonight on 9&10 News at 5:00.
