Valleyfair's new "wait in line" policy for guests with disabilities may be legal, but it isn't right ("Valleyfair walks a fine line between fairness, access," June 22).
The bypassing of long lines is a simple accommodation that allows people with physical or emotional disabilities to enjoy a day at the park. Without it, the disabled may not come.
Valleyfair should have devised a plan to deter able-bodied individuals from taking advantage of the "special access entrance" rather than penalizing the children with special needs.
Although autistic patrons can still use the special entrance, it's just as difficult for kids with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, Down syndrome or cerebral palsy to wait for long periods of time. What's next? Perhaps the elimination of handicapped parking? After all, it's only fair.
