Black-Market Disney Guides

Have you heard about the way people skip to the front of the lines at Disney?

From local news station RTV6- “Some wealthy moms have figured out a way to jump the lines at Disney World by hiring people who use wheelchairs. The people in wheelchairs pretend they are members of the family who hired them so the entire group can move to the front of the line. The “black-market Disney guides” cost about $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.”

Wow! The crazy things people think of, and actually do, don’t even surprise me anymore.

I do have a few questions about this though:

1. I wonder how people even thought of this idea in the first place? Do you think they were waiting in line at Disney and saw someone in a wheelchair go past them, and all the sudden had this “brilliant” idea?

2. What about the cost? One-thousand bucks for the day. Wow! Clearly this is not an option for everyone. But what if it were cheaper, would you consider it then? Is it easier to to say you would never do this because it’s something most of us would never be able to afford?

3. Is there anyone out there that does not see this as a bad thing? Anyone think it’s a great way for someone to make a quick thousand dollars and get to go to Disney?

We’ve yet to take the whole crew to Disney. We were close once, but my wife was 8 months pregnant with our second child and it was about 100 degrees outside, Downtown Disney was as close as we wanted to get. Maybe one day we’ll get up the courage and the money to take our family to Disney, but if we do, don’t worry we will be waiting in the long, slow line just like everyone else.
