Re: [IP] Handicap Pass at Disneyland



Disney is for fun for children and adults alike. Disabled or not.
I can think of many reasons a person would need a handicap pass but can ride
the rides.
Children with diabetes-it can be a long haul standing in the sun. In the
case of small children with diabetes standing in the heat? Why shouldn't
they be able to have the pass? For older adults with hip problems-why should
the have to stand in line? WHy should people with rheumatoid arthritis have
to stand in a long line or someone with severe pain? They can go on rides.
Having a disability or health problem doesn't mean life ends.
I am not to be in the sun not because of "allergies' but because of lupus
and Sjogren's. Too long of a time in the sun can bring on a lupus flare  but
that doesn't mean I couldn't go on some rides. I also cannot stand for long
periods of time but that doesn't mean I couldn't have fun. I also use a
wheelchair but I can transfer to some of the rides. Having MS causes
problems walking for me and standing but I sure can go on a ride. What do
you think people with disabilities should do?
Ginny who is thankful for accessibility :)
