Disney to Ban Visitors , Who Lie About Disabilities.

The Walt Disney Company says that there has been an uptick in fraudulent disability claims at its parks from people attempting to gain Disability Access Services (DAS), 'New York Post' reports.

.

On April 15, the company said that anyone found to have lied about a disability to obtain these services will be banned from Disney parks permanently.

.

If it is determined that any of the statements a Guest made in the process of obtaining DAS are not true, the Guest will be permanently barred from entering the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort, The Walt Disney Company, via statement.

Any previously purchased Annual Passes, Magic Key passes, tickets and other park products and services... will be forfeited and not refunded, The Walt Disney Company, via statement.

DAS allows people with disabilities to skip waiting in lines.

The company's website previously indicated that the service was for “guests who have difficulty tolerating extended waits in a conventional queue environment due to a disability.”.

The website has since been updated to read, , “DAS is intended to accommodate a small percentage of Guests who, due to a developmental disability like autism or similar, are unable to wait in a conventional queue for an extended period or time.”.

At Walt Disney World, “in-person registration will no longer be available at theme park Guest Relations locations starting May 20, 2024,” Disney said.

Instead, DAS registrations will take place via virtual video chat.

.

However, at Disneyland, guests can apply for DAS via either virtual chat or an "accessibility services" window beginning June 18.

.

Anyone who currently has DAS will be required to re-apply, 'New York Post' reports.

Stomach Sleeping May Be Wreaking Havoc on Your Health

Stomach Sleeping , May Be Wreaking , Havoc on Your Health. 'New York Post' reports that sleeping on your stomach may come with a number of potential health issues. Experts say the biggest complaint from people who sleep on their front is having lower back pain. If you already have neck and back problems, sleeping in this position is almost guaranteed to make them worse, Dr. Tony Nalda, Scoliosis Reduction Center, via New York Post. According to Dr. Tony Nalda from the Scoliosis Reduction Center, stomach sleeping can also make breathing difficult as it compresses the diaphragm. The sleeping position also puts stress on the heart, which can make it more difficult for blood to circulate. Over time, this increases the risk of cardio issues, especially if you already have problems. If you struggle to breathe deeply, it can lead to higher blood pressure, Dr. Tony Nalda, Scoliosis Reduction Center, via New York Post.

Sleeping with a twisted neck, like in the front sleeping position, can also result in migraines, pinched nerves and even neurological issues. According to the Sleep Foundation, stomach sleeping can also lead to more wrinkles because of how the position smushes your face against the pillow. The experts say that changing sleeping positions can be an easy fix that could improve both your quality of sleep and your health. Sleeping on your back or your side offers significantly more health benefits and less discomfort than sleeping on your stomach, Sleep Foundation, via New York Post. Experts say that side sleeping can help people who suffer from sleep apnea, as the position helps keep the airway open. Meanwhile, sleeping on your back can help people with lower back pain, as it helps with spine alignment
