  •  For us.. (4+ / 0-)

    if it's just my other half and I, we'll wait in line with the wheelchair if we can, though a lot of the longer lines include stairs and narrow turns and roped off areas that just aren't accessible, which is why they have the disabled lane in the first place. When my autistic son is along, we take the fast lane. Because while physically he is capable of waiting 2.5 hours in a line, he's not emotionally/behaviorally/sensory capable of doing it.  And yes, the family goes with the disabled person. That's the way it should be.

      •  Ok, so who helps the disabled family member (4+ / 0-)

        transfer onto the ride car? Who is responsible for the autistic child's safety on the ride, if their family members are 2.5 hours behind them in a line? Who waits with the disabled family member while they are waiting for their family members to finally ride 2.5 hours later and catch up with them, and what good does that do for the autistic child who CAN'T wait? Who explains to the kids that they can't enjoy the ride WITH their father because mom and kids have to wait 2.5 hours to ride? The families stay together because it's a family activity, and because the people in the park are NOT responsible for transfers in and out of wheelchairs, or for other people's disabled family members while they are in the park.
