ORLANDO, Fla. (WIAT) -- Some wealthy families have found a way to skip to the front of the line at Disney World, but not without creating controversy.
According to social research conducted by Dr. Wednesday Martin, the families hire disabled tour guides.
Martin says she found out about the underground network of disabled tour guides while working on a book about New York City's Park Avenue elite.
Disney offers VIP tours and a FASTPASS service that allows people to avoid long lines.
It is Disney policy to allow parties of up to seven people to enter attractions when one member of the party is disabled.
Martin says one mother admitted to hiring a guide to escort her family through the part at a rate of $130 per hour.
Disney officials have not responded to the allegations.
