    Company policy is for 1 additional person to join the person waiting. Second party of the Rider swaps according to the policy are now capped at 2 instead of the old policy where it was 3. Accommodations to the policy are up to cast discretion but are being tracked and monitored.

    I was at Disney World a few weeks ago, they were letting 6-10 people cut in line to get to their place holder! I mentioned it to the cast members several times, they just shrugged their shoulders…..

  3. Holding a spot in line while someone goes to the restroom or to get a drink has always been allowed – As long as they have someone holding their place.

    I am glad for this. I would like to see more changes to some of the policies that seemingly allow parents of small children and / or
    with disabilities to have many more perks than the other guests. I am all about them being accommodating but it needs to be done fairly.

      You’re absolutely right.

      What perks are there for those with disabilities?

      Seriously asking.

      What perks are available to those with disabilities *right now* (aka, not from years ago)?

        They don’t need to wait in the “regular” line.

          I’m a person with a disability, I’m unable to be on my feet for more that 30 min due to a ligament breaking in foot that even though I had surgery and couldn’t walk at all for 3 monthshas never healed and at i 35 was told I would never be able to run again or walk for longer that an hour at a time, but despite this problem you believe I should go in a regular queue with my wheelchair? Mmmm ok

          This is an accommodation not a perk. The party still needs to wait that same amount of time then just do not need to physically be in the line- something many disabilities would not allow.

    I was born with a natural deformity on both my feet and had reconstructive surgery on each foot in my 30s. I could not walk for six months on each foot after the surgery and will forever have problems. Does this mean I get to get on the rides before everyone else. No, I should have the same wait time as everyone else, wheelchair or not.
