Lol I thought your last line took a weird negative turn. You can edit your post by clicking the clock in the upper right and choosing edit from the drop down. I'm glad to see the refurb is so good people are changing their minds from what they thought originally. So excited to see it! - howdyhowdyhowdy 97.9 #3417 10-4-13 2:59PMLike(1)Reply
The Starbucks inside Market House is a "licensed store", which means all partners are Disney Cast Members, but all beverages/products sold must adhere to Starbucks quality standards. This location will accept your Starbucks cards; however, it will not be able to access your rewards. You will still earn your stars, from what I understand. - Alicewhoareyou 1104.2 #133 10-4-13 12:48PMLikeReply

Not all reasons for the GAC are apparent to the naked eye. Some abuse it and others couldn't enjoy Disney without it.
That's one way, but my son is only 7 years old and his living with high functions autism would not really handle this idea. What others who get and use the GAC may not like is providing documentation to receive the GAC. We always have a quick copy of his medical records (now available via Kaiser Permanente app) as well as a letter from his clinician. This may sound harsh but documentation may be the best way to cut down the fraud. - BombFrogFormerCM 700.4 #225 5-30-13 10:09AMLike(4)Reply
I have never heard of this until my son's Spacial ed teacher told me about this today. My 6yr old son suffers from aspergers syndrome a form of Autism. He deffinatly doesn't handle waiting in line for very long he gets over stimulated with that many people around I usually have to hold him the whole time in line. We will be at the park this Sunday and again June 25,26,27. I have his IEP stating my sons condition. - dericknhaleysmommy 177.4 #2150 5-30-13 3:18PMLikeReply
My daughter is wheelchair bound with over 10 diagnosis...her make a wish trip was in 2006 and we are fortunate she is still around witjout the disability pass we get Maddie would not get to experience the magic at disneyland its sad soany abuse it.... - formadi 24.2 #5801 5-30-13 9:38PMLikeReply
Like I posted in another comment.....some will abuse it, but some aren't able to enjoy Disneyland without it
I think the way to deal with this is that the guest is given a return/fast pass based on the current wait time. For example if the wait for Indy is 60 mins they get a return card that is good 60 to 120 mins from now. This still allows the guest to bypass the line but makes cheating less attractive since the guest doesn't get immediately to the front of the line - mike714 338.1 #619 5-30-13 9:08AMLike(9)Reply
The sucky thing about stories like this is that it will give people ideas, many don't know about GACs, but will now. I really hope this doesn't up the GAC abuse and make it more difficult for people who really need and benefit from GACs to get them. - Linzee 870.6 #176 5-30-13 8:42AMLike(8)Reply
@LeLundrial, when I started with the special assist/GAC pass 20 years ago (only DL then) I had to provide a medical note to verify my son's autism diagnosis. Then after 5 years they said they could not ask for proof anymore. Then there was the use a Wheel Chair go to the front, good for rental income and disney did not seem to mind. I still carry my medical note just to be safe. I do see alot of line abuse but not much I can say. - Plumiegirl 7906.7 #3 6-6-13 1:57PMLikeReply

I never mind seeing affection between couples...it's nice to see love at it's finest....holding hands, a kiss here andthere....totally acceptable BUT when it's borderline "go get a room" too much is not ok
I used to know a security officer who would tell couples, "Disneyland is a place for families, not for MAKING families!" They would laugh and move along... - abudoggie 12.1 #8251 4-16-13 7:40PMLike(4)Reply
Not ok, just nicely say that what they are doing is not appropriate for the place they are, around the young kids there. - Pinup Princess 168.9 #2273 4-16-13 7:55PMLikeReply
NOT ok. They only time you should see more than a couple little kisses is when there has just been a proposal. Even that would be most likely kept tasteful - dimplesdanie 1236.7 #105 4-16-13 7:59PMLikeReply

They have a Mickey and Minnie shirt at the parks, one says "I'll be your Mickey" and the other says "I'll be your Minnie". They are cute, simple and not TOO matchy. But both parties should want to, otherwise NEVER try to force him to. - Sweet_Irish_Cream 3833.5 #25 4-16-13 11:36PMLikeReply
