As if MS isn't bad enough the place of Magic burst my image of them! I longed to see my kids grow and bring them to see the Magic Kingdom. Well I was equipped with the neck coolers and a Dr's note saying I had MS and needed some special assistance. Well, Sea World and Universal were AMAZING they gave me a pass to get in a special entrace, avoiding long lines, basically you go in the exit and a re put on the ride with in a couple turns sometimes right away. I was not looking to be put right on but not as long as others had to wait, I could not, I needed to go in Air-Conditioning on a regular basis. Well, what did Disney do, they gave me a pass saying, send her to shade to wait in line! They said have your family wait in the regular line and call you when they are up, NOT POSSIBLE! I was no where near the entrance so could not hear them or get to them without it taking forever. I was soooooooooo upset all that money to go there, we bought 5 day passes about $800.00 and this was the help I got. I watch people in wheelchairs go right in, I am grateful I do not require a wheelchair, but the heat did not affect them, not the same! I felt so discriminated against. I was survayed as I entered the fourth day and told my gripe, the guy was outraged and said I will take care of this. I was Ok here we go, nope, all I got was instant access to Fast Passes. Usually you can only get so mainy per hour, I could get all I wanted, sound good? No, there are times on each pass and they are hours apart and are half a park away, so I was expected to run here and there. This would have required more energy than waiting in line. My Magical Vacation-not so hot-I thought it was bad enough to be diagnosed on my child's first day of Kindergarden but this was a real rip-off. I did enjoy their faces though, all was not a loss but Disney really surprised me, I thought they would be the tops with helping me. WRONG the WORST! Thanks for listening-Tina
