Hire a disabled person so you can jump to the head of the line?

I'm in total disbelief that someone would stoop so low just to shorten the time they have to wait in line: 

Who wants to wait in long lines with the ordinary riff-raff at Disney World? Not some wealthy New York City moms, who apparently hire a disabled person to pose as a family member so they can skip the line at rides and attractions, according to the New York Post.

As a special needs parent, how do you feel about this exploitation?

This REALLY REALLY bothers me. TREMENDOUSLY. We have a special code on my son's pass for a local amusement park, because he is special needs. I'm a bit angry that even that gets abused (with others bringing tons of people on with them). Personally, I would love to see just the child/person that is disabled along with ONE companion, two tops (in case of a sibling or something).

It's just so sickening that they feel they can do this. And for the disabled person doing this, shame on them as well. Terrible.
