    I always get so frustrated when I see adults staring at him. And I mean stopping and staring. He always tells me hes used to it and not to get all upset, but I cant help it. Maybe I'm protective of him or something, but seriously......Don't stare.
    And you hit the nail on the head. They are setting wonderful examples for their kids.
    I am sorry people are so rude. Hugs to him.I know how he feels.

    i usuaLLY end up just starring back at them. I live it wen they ask me about my leg. I always come up with some outraged story for them. The shark one has got to be the best. i was in a waiting room ne time where everyone generally ignores me. Tis one kid comes up to me and I tell him about the shark. Not realizing everyone could here, I looked up and everyone was starring at me. Ooopsw. I usually give the adults my rescued cat story.

    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 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 am a little concerned if I go to the meetings on Sundays That people might treat me diffrent.Sounds silly I know. I have had a few problems with the parks and people in the past.Even cast members.
