So, thanks to this report, we may have located the world's most entitled human persons ever.
The report, published by the New York Post, says that some wealthy Manhattan moms visiting Disney World didn't want their precious pampered tykes to wait in long lines for rides like everyone else, so they hired themselves disabled people to pretend they're part of the family to allow them to cut to the head of the line.
Disney World allows guests who are disabled to bring with them up to six others from their party through a disabled line to avoid having to wait in line for a ride.
According to the report, one of the rich moms boasted, "My daughter waited one minute to get on 'It's a Small World' -- the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours."
She then added, "You can't go to Disney without a tour concierge. This is how the 1 percent does Disney."
This person exists.
The ironically Cruella de Vil-like lady reportedly hired her guide from Dream Tours and had him escort her, her husband, and their two kids through the theme park. The tour guide rode a motorized scooter with a "handicapped" sign on it as the family whisked by everyone else waiting in long lines for each of the rides they wished to get on.
"Who wants a speed pass when you can use your black-market handicapped guide to circumvent the lines altogether?" she told the Post.
Dr. Wednesday Martin, a social anthropologist who is writing a book, Primates of Park Avenue, discovered the tactic while doing research.
Disney offers a VIP guide, which includes Fast Passes (a ticket that allows a guest to cut to the front of the line). But the packages range from $310 to $380, which is far more expensive than doing it with the "black-market Disney guides," who charge the rich ladies $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.
