    I'm with all those that would have made an immediate stink to the rude cast member. I feel like Tommy Lee Jones in "Lonesome Dove", when he slammed the rude bartender's face into the counter... "I won't tolerate rudeness in a man". I'd happily push your chair, Crazy Legs.

    We take my just-turned-90 year old grandmother to the parks a couple of times a year. She loves it there, and though there are very few rides she'll go on everyone has treated her like a queen. We've never had any problems, though the thought has crossed my mind to put a 'cow-catcher' on the front of her chair!

    I know what you mean. Every time we go to DL I say that I am going to get my daughter one of those shirts that say "keep staring, I might do a trick"!

    Some of the people we met up with at the park on Saturday noticed a lot of people staring at my brother and eventually asked someone "what, youve never seen a guy in a wheelchair before?" And these people who were staring were adults.
    Remain Seated Please..... :o

    I lost my leg so I get a lot of kids looking at it. At Sea World when they stare,I tell them that Shamu bit it off. Don't get too close to the edge.

    I don't think that Disneyland could be wore than qanywhere else. Some people are very nice and make allowances. Others would just as soon run my *** over. What they don't know is I can move bretty fast in my chair ande i would go hit them in the ankles.

    I'm not in a wheel chair, but have family members in and have spoken with countless guests at the parks in wheel chairs. Anyone know Gary, he's a DL regular. In any event, there are unfortunately, a LOT of kids that rent the chairs just for what they think will be quick access to the attractions, so a lot of CMs get a little frustrated, but that's really not an excuse for rude treatment of our ADA guests. Crazylegs, i hope that you will except my appologies on behalf of the DLR cast for your regretable treatment that day.

    I'm very sorry about your predicament and the rude treatment by one cast member at the park. Is your confinement to a wheelchair temporary or are you faced with being dependent upon it for the rest of your life?

    Adults are MUCH worse than kids. Kids will actually come up and ask "why can't she walk?" I don't mind that at all (neither does my daughter). It's the adults (a lot of them parents, great example for your kids) staring that drives me crazy!
