Disney Sued Over Tower Of Terror Ride
Thursday, January 29, 2009 10:58:08 AM

LAKE BUENA VISTA -- An Orlando woman is suing Disney after she says management unfairly banned her from all parks.

Denise Mooty said she suffers from abdominal adhesions.

Abdominal adhesions are scars that form after surgery around the female reproductive organs, the bowel, heart, spine and hand. Adhesions can also form after an infection, chemotherapy and radiation.

The one and only thing she said helps relieve her excruciating pain is riding the Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

According to Mooty's doctor, the force of the ride's drop actually helps break up scar tissue, allowing her to move around more freely.

"After we discovered what the ride had done, I started going on a regular basis, and I went from having four to six surgeries a year to one a year," Mooty said.

This is where the lawsuit comes in.

Mooty had a Guest Assistance Card, which allows her to go through a special entrance to get onto the ride.

She said in August 2008 an employee told her she wasn't allowed to have it anymore.

Mooty said she was then banned from ever coming back on property.

Disney Responds
Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger issued this statement on Wednesday: "Ms. Mooty's claims are without merit. She was trespassed for causing a disturbance within the presence of other guests and using foul language toward a Cast Member."
