Hola my fellow Disney addicts it is I, Anonymouse! It’s been awhile since you heard from me, I know you missed me. I am back with some rumors that I have heard around the “World” lately.
I am sure most of you heard about the scandal concerning some people of the richer persuasion paying for disabled tour guides with a Guest Assistance Card so they can use their pass for quicker access to the rides. Well Disney is rumored to be doing something about it. They have not released anything officially yet but my sources tell me that they definitely want to make it harder for people to abuse this privilege but they also still want to remain fair to people who are honest and truly do need the card. Now that is a fine line and not an easy task. We know Disney always does their best to make everyone’s vacation magical.
I am sure you want me to get to the gossip already. I was told by my super private inside source that they’re considering a few options:
- They may require some kind of documentation or proof that your disability exists. They can’t ask for medical proof due to HIPAA Privacy laws so I am not sure how they would go about doing this. A CM told me that they are talking about asking for proof of a Handicapped Parking permit in order to get the Guest Assistance Card.
- Another thing that is floating around is the Guest Assistance card may only be used by the person who needs it and not accompanying friends and family.
- They may ask for ID when getting and using the Guest Assistance Card.
- Lastly there are strong rumors that at some point the GAC will be somehow be combined with the Magicbands and RFID technology.
Let’s remember that this is just rumors at this point. As soon as I have confirmation you will be the first to know.
How do you feel about the possible changes? Have you heard anything different?
