The People Have Spoken & For Once, The Disney Parks Have Listened (Yay Free Stuff!)

The Walt Disney Company is at a place in its existence where it rarely answers to anyone or anything; the company calls the shots, usually with no meaningful explanation and definitely without apology. We’ve seen it happen time and time again with the closing of the Virtual Magic Kingdom online game, Pleasure Island at Walt Disney World and the Country Bear Jamboree at Disneyland.

Earlier this year, Dana Holcomb, of Killeen Texas, was flying home from his birthday celebration in Las Vegas. He was flying first class and had a connecting flight in Phoenix.

While waiting for his flight from Phoenix to Austin to take off, Holcomb, who is allergic to dogs, began showing allergy symptoms due to the medium-sized emotional support dog that was on the lap of the woman seated next to him.
