CALIFORNIA--Disney parks officially made a change to its policies for visitors with disabilities.

As of Wednesday they are no longer letting those guests receive instant access to rides. Instead disabled guests will get a pass with a time to return to the ride and avoid the line.  

 “To say to these families now who have such a stressful life that this one thing has been taken away from us is absolutely abominable to me,” said Judy Mark, Autism Society volunteer.

Disney said the changes are in response to numerous reports of some guests and groups hiring disabled people to come to parks with them to help them skip the lines. Disney also said there were other reports of people pretending to be disabled in order to beat the system.
