Good Ship Lollipop Turns Evil: Disney Disallows STL Expected Mom, Boarding!

The Disney “brand” which prides itself on family values, wholesomeness and cheery characters, obviously didn’t get the memo, that pregnant women can travel too. Disney Cruise Lines recently prevented a St. Louis woman from boarding one of its ships because she is 25 weeks pregnant. Sounds like discrimination to the New Evening Whirl.
 
Emily Jackson, 22, and her family arrived in Miami after her doctor had cleared her to vacation aboard Disney Magic. But the line does not allow women who are more than 24 weeks pregnant to sail out of safety concerns, and a doctor's note is not accepted, we’ve later learned.
 
An armed police officer escorted the family from check-in.
 
Jackson said: "We had a terrible Disney experience." Yes you did.
 
Disney refunded the family for the cruise. The line said its policy is on its website and in travel documents. The line said the Miami-Dade Police Department is responsible for security at the port and "handled the situation as they felt appropriate given the guest's actions." Again, municipal cops need to avoid being included in potential lawsuits. They are paid by public taxpayers’ dollars to protect and serve, not get involved in civil policy matters.
