Now that there are 3 forum entries on this article, I'll weigh in with my 2¢. I don't know the validity of the article, and have no direct personal experience of the "convenience" of disabled access for Disney attractions. I do know one family that travelled with someone using a wheelchair, and they FELT that their wait times were shorter. This was nearly 15 years ago though, and I can't imagine that anything from 15 years ago will ever be an accurate gauge for what to expect today. I will say this generally about ADA and ADA access: I think it is of crucial importance to have adequate access for people needing it. I think everyone should have the ability to get to anything they want and without too much frustration on their part. Nobody wants to be in a wheelchair or have any disability. I imagine if you'd ask anyone with a disability if they'd prefer to give up their so-called perks in exchange for living without their disability, they'd be thrilled to. I am frustrated that there are abuses of ADA access. This is true whether or not people are using disabled people to piggyback on their access, or if they are reprenting themselves as disabled when they are not. I know for a fact that the latter exists. There are people who get HC placards for otherwise phantom or non qualifying symptoms. ADA access should be available for people who NEED it - not for people who want to take advantage of it.
