Default A Liability Issue?

Seems the 800 pound gorilla or should I say mouse has reared itís head and flexed its muscles once again by denying a disabled man entrance into ďThe happiest place on earth.Ē Seems it will never end. Itís funny how Disney claims itís a liability issue, yet theyíll rent to anyone one of their mobility scooters to people who have never driven one them. Talking about a liability.

I wonder if Mickey would also deney entrance to one of the Seg-based wheelchairs, like an Alley chair ? Also, what if you glide up in your own electric wheelchair or Rascal-like scooter. Do they prohibit those also and make you utilitize the "branded Mickey scooter ?"

They can't, ADA requires them to accommodate wheelchairs.
