Disney Decided

I am revisiting Living Life to the Best of Your Possibility post from May 2013; “Wealthy Hiring Disabled to get ahead in the Disney Lines.”
There had been reports of rich people paying disabled park visitors to pose as family members to gain quicker access to the long lines for rides and shows.
Disney investigated as promised.
They concluded to change their policy dropping the disabled access. Disney executives chose to revamp the disabled-access policy by verifying the disabled customers were indeed, disabled. The premise being, not all individuals were disabled but rather imposters.
True. There are always those trying to beat the Magic Kingdom system, ride on Mickey’s coat-tails. Nobody cares for an imposter. Cracking the whip on disability criteria is the answer as far as Disney is concerned.
So, let’s weed out the fake handicapped people from Snow White’s garden.
I add the rich exploiters need policy tweaking. Disney does provide front of the line tickets at increased prices:
FASTPASS Service tickets
VIP Tours passes,
Deluxe VIP Tours passes
So why haven’t the rich been held accountable as fakers?
They can afford the extra money to get better packages directly from Disney.
They have undercut the disabled they so quickly pawned. The rich impersonate as a valid family members of a disabled person, why are they not held responsible as a fakers.
Why isn’t the other side of the scandal being addressed? Why isn’t there an income criteria? You know, to make sure they can’t afford the extra cash to be treated as important and special.
Such social, economic cultural issues have multi-layers.
I have included different three posts with three different opinions concerning this issue.
Rarely is there ever one singular answer.
And although Disney executives exclaimed their new sole policy, they avoided addressing half of the initial scandal.
Why have the rich gotten the golden ticket—oh, wait, wrong story.
Why haven’t the wealthy been judged to meet a certain ‘criteria’?
Are they more entitled in the Land of Make-Believe and Happily Ever After?
