Welcome to Episode 25 of Tales From The Mouse House - Disneyland Podcast, and boy howdy is it a BIG episode! We cover a lot of stuff, including our recent visit to the 2011 Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California!

On this packed episode, we discuss some interesting things from around our house, including a slithery visitor and some pretty intense heat; our recent D23 adventure including a run down of the panels and sights we experienced.

But don't feel like this is an all D23 episode though! We also review a couple of brand new attractions and some awesome places to strap on the old feed-bag at the Disneyland Resort, and offer up some great tips. PLUS…we make a very special announcement or two!

So, I decided to check the downloads of Tales From The Mouse House since we switched to DreamHost.com. Now, we started our podcast in May of 2010, but in Dec. of 2010 switched over to DreamHost. So...since Dec. 2010 we've hit 113,021 downloads! I know that may not seem like a lot but for us, we're pretty jazzed!! :)

Dan, that's what I like about DreamHost. It's a great ego booster! Just when I think no one's listening and thinking, maybe it's time to call it a day, I see the numbers! :)

You guys see this bit of news?
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/disney_world_srich_kid_outrage_zTBA0xrvZRkIVc1zItXGDP

They are 1 percenters who are 100 percent despicable.

Some wealthy Manhattan moms have figured out a way to cut the long lines at Disney World — by hiring disabled people to pose as family members so they and their kids can jump to the front, The Post has learned.

REUTERS
Rich moms shamelessly hire disabled tour guides so their kids can cut long lines.
The “black-market Disney guides” run $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day.

“My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” crowed one mom, who hired a disabled guide through Dream Tours Florida.


Dr. Wednesday Martin, social anthropologist who discovered scheme.
“You can’t go to Disney without a tour concierge,’’ she sniffed. “This is how the 1 percent does Disney.”

The woman said she hired a Dream Tours guide to escort her, her husband and their 1-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter through the park in a motorized scooter with a “handicapped” sign on it. The group was sent straight to an auxiliary entrance at the front of each attraction.

Disney allows each guest who needs a wheelchair or motorized scooter to bring up to six guests to a “more convenient entrance.”

The Florida entertainment mecca warns that there “may be a waiting period before boarding.” But the consensus among upper-crust moms who have used the illicit handicap tactic is that the trick is well worth the cost.

Not only is their “black-market tour guide” more efficient than Disney World’s VIP Tours, it’s cheaper, too.

Disney Tours offers a VIP guide and fast passes for $310 to $380 per hour.

Passing around the rogue guide service’s phone number recently became a shameless ritual among Manhattan’s private-school set during spring break. The service asks who referred you before they even take your call.

“It’s insider knowledge that very few have and share carefully,” said social anthropologist Dr. Wednesday Martin, who caught wind of the underground network while doing research for her upcoming book “Primates of Park Avenue.”

“Who wants a speed pass when you can use your black-market handicapped guide to circumvent the lines all together?” she said.

“So when you’re doing it, you’re affirming that you are one of the privileged insiders who has and shares this information.”

Ryan Clement runs Dream Tours Florida with girlfriend Jacie Christiano, whom the rich Manhattan mom indicated was her family’s guide.

A working phone number for Christiano couldn’t be found, and Clement refused to put The Post through to her. A message left on Facebook was not immediately returned by Christiano.

Clement denied that his gal pal uses her disability to bypass lines. He said she has an auto-immune disorder and acknowledged that she uses a scooter on the job.

Disney did not return repeated requests for comment.
