Rich moms hire handicapped tour guides for special access at Walt Disney World

Posted Wednesday, May 15, 2013 11:14 AM | Contributed by Andrew Siebert

Some wealthy Manhattan moms have figured out a way to cut the long lines at Disney World — by hiring disabled people to pose as family members so they and their kids can jump to the front, The Post has learned. The “black-market Disney guides” run $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.

WDW already offers a VIP tour that includes unlimited use of the FP return line. ~$300/hr, 6 hour minimum.

Bad idea. It would never fly with the ADA.

Better yet: Disney could offer "special services" that will take your disabled family member and give them an escort around the park, so the rest of the family can enjoy the park without the "hassle" of a disabled member. (make $$$)

Then, they could rent out those disabled persons to "rich moms" to be the escort through the park for the day. (make $$$)

It's a win-win!

I do not like the above comment at all. Wouldn't a family want to share memories at Disney with their disabled family member too? Disabled people are not a "hassle."

It's kind of not funny.

I wasn't being funny. The entire post was sarcastic. You really think I'm suggesting people should pay Disney to babysit a family member AND for Disney to charge a random stranger to take care of someone else's family member? How could you take anything in my post seriously?

Why hasn't the internet world adopted a universal symbol for sarcasm yet? I'm glad you were just kidding. :D

I'm inventing it now:

The new universal symbol for sarcasm online is a "#" on each side of the sarcastic phrase.

Ex:

#This symbol will really catch on#

I've done a little research on the sarcasm topic here, and I have found that ending the sarcastic passage with "/sarcasm" is my favorite, followed by :p as a close second.

My personal favorite is not including any indication whatsoever whether or not sarcasm is being used, therefore leaving it up to the reader using context clues to figure it out.

That's what I meant, Andy, but I wanted to prove a point.

I was just seeing if anyone would bother to parse my post and see if I meant my statement literally or sarcastically.
