'This Is How The 1 Percent Does Disney'

Posted: Updated:

Some families have discovered a new way to skip the long lines at Disney World.

Forget the "Fast Passes." Apparently, the secret to skipping long lines at Disney World is to hire a person with a disability.

According to the New York Post, wealthy Manhattan moms are hiring people with disabilities to pretend to be part of the family so they can cut to the front of the line.

These guides run about $130 an hour, cheaper than Disney's own VIP Guide and Fast Passes.

Families book the tours through a company called Dream Tours Florida.

The Post says passing around the name of the company was done by many moms during spring break.

The company asks who referred you before they even take your call.

The Post quotes a mom who says, "My daughter waited one minute to get on 'It's a Small World' – the other kids had to wait two-and-a-half hours ... This is how the one percent does Disney."

Disney World is not happy to hear people are skipping lines unfairly.

A Disney spokesperson says, "It is unacceptable to abuse accommodations that were designed for guests with disabilities."

FOX 29's Karen Hepp was live in the newsroom Wednesday morning with more on what these families are apparently doing and why it is so controversial.
