That would come out MUCH cheaper than what the NY Puke is reporting. You can also go to Guest Services and get a Guest Assistance Card and it is free. Disney does not ask you to prove your disability!! I think it would fall more under the category of a liberal rag trying to create more class warfare.
They don't do this because it's too much of a hassle to act like they're handicapped for the day- maneuvering around the park, getting in and out of the chair itself, etc. They also just plain don't want to be seen as handicapped. Easier to just pay someone.

Yes the NY Post is a glorified tabloid, but I know this story to be true and know people who have paid for these types of black market services- not the exact one named in the article. But there are others, I assure you.
