Millionaire and billionaire Manhattan moms hire handicapped tour guides so kids can cut lines at Disney World
Concerned with 1 and 2 hour lines at Disney World for your kids? No problem, if money is not a problem. There is an efficient, market-based, work around solution for this. Especially if you are a millionaire or billionaire Manhattan mom (according to the NY Post).
This is how it works. All you have to do is hire a "Dream Tours guide" for about a $1000 a day to pose as family members so they and their rich kids can jump to the front lines at the Magical Kingdom. And the best part is: It Works!
One Manhattan mom reports: “My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours. You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge. This is how the 1 percent does Disney.”
