Disneyland has a great program where people who have special needs can get support. For one thing, they can avoid the long lines for rides, using special lines. For many, this is the ONLY way they can attend DisneyLand.
Unfortunately, some people gamed the system and now Disney is changing the rules.
There is a petition up. Please read and consider signing:
