Ticket price discount for disabled?

I was reading a guide book for Universal Studios that I got from the library. It is from 2008 and it says that if you go to guest services and ask for a disabled discount that you can get a reduced ticket price. It also says that you don't have to actually be disabled but that it can be requested by grandparents or others who aren't going to go on the "big" rides. Is there such a thing? I can't find it on the Universal web site.

I don't believe any discounts like that are available. Ticket prices and options were raised earlier this year. You will probably need to call Guest Services to confirm if the tickets are still available.

Update

I e-mailed Universal guest services and I got a phone call from a lovely woman named Cathy who was sooo cheerful LOL. She said that yes there is a disability discount of 15%. You don't have to be disabled to use it so my parents (who are in their 60's and are not going on any rides) can use that to buy their tickets. She said that all we have to do is tell them at the ticket booth that we want 2 of our passes to be with the disabled discount and it will be applied right then.

I was VERY surprised when I answered the phone and she said that she was calling from Universal about my e-mail question LOL. She even followed up with an e-mail response later that day that said that she would be very happy to answer any other questions that I may have about our upcoming trip to Universal.
