Taking up the entire walkway with your group and not paying attention to the fact that other people want to go around you.
Talking about a show while it's going on and spoiling everything before it happens.
Who is Andy, and why are we trying to find him?
The article in question.
Perhaps the biggest annoyance in my everyday life, along with just standing in the middle of a walkway.
Also, figure out who is going to sit where before boarding the ride, musical chairs is not fun for us or anyone else who wants to ride and is being held up.
Be prepared to give employees the TOTAL number of people in your party so we can better accommodate you. If you don't, we can't guarantee that you will all sit together.
I get it. Kids are kids and I don't blame the kids for crying or even acting out a bit in this environment. It is sensory overload, but parents need to be respectful and proactively so.
Sorry for the rant.
Don't get me started on people with strollers.
In a queue and you keep edging closer to one side of me like you are going pass me!
Waiting at a counter service for 10 minutes and get up to the register and THEN decide what you are going to eat!
Listening to a CM tell people where they can and cannot stand during a parade and then sitting in the area they said not to. Like...in front of the garbage can that I am leaning on and pushing it backwards to make room for your behind on the curb.
Oh, this was a particular pet peeve of mine while I visited the parks. Very annoying!
The key to visiting a park is to pack lightly. Very lightly. You don't want to lug everything around all day long.
10. Guests who refuse to move with the crowd and either push their way through or go at a crawl, especially when traveling in a large group
9. Guests who use inappropriate language or engage in excessive PDAs while waiting in line
8. Guests who stop in a moving queue line to get a picture/allow slower members of their party to catch up and don't let others pass
7. Guests who argue with an operator when their child is too short to ride or ask for a picture, thus holding up the dispatch
6. Guests who don't have their order straight by the time they approach the counter at a food service location
5. Guests who stop in the middle of a walkway or right in front of a ride entrance and block access
4. Guests who block the view of others at a show by placing their child on their shoulders or filming everything with a tablet
3. Guests who use any type of lighting while taking pictures or video in a dark ride
2. Guests who did not join the queue with their party and attempt to force their way in or engage in any other type of line jumping
1. Guests who cause a ride or show to be interrupted due to them not following directions (in my opinion this should be an automatic ejection, especially if the ride has to be stopped to deal with the guest)
Don't narrate the ride! 1st night of soft-opening for Transformers and I got stuck with some people that narrated the ENTIRE ride... :/ (this includes yelling on the ride)...
People that take up more room walking down Main Street than The Beatles did walking across Abbey Road.
People that stop to take pictures of the Walt Disney World sign on World Drive to take pictures!! :O
Follow all safety guidelines and staff instructions- whether you agree with them or not!
Many times when things go wrong at theme parks it is because guests DECIDED not to follow instructions.
Also, even if your child is tall enough to ride alone, ensure you believe they are old enough. In the event of a ride issue they will be sitting in the vehicle, by themselves, for an extended period of time without you there. Can they handle this without being frightened?
#1 - Do not Fart in line while I am in back of you and Do not Fart in a tunnel area like the Queue for Splash Mountain..
Don't be the family that doesn't figure out how to fold up your stroller before getting on the parking lot shuttle.
People in motorized scooters who seem to believe they have a right of way at all times
People who interrupt your transaction at a store or cart to ask a question of the clerk
That's a trick question. I know the fan is getting into the CM's skin, but that's the point. You know when the 9pm fireworks will start?
"25.Don't leave food in a stroller."
Come on. That stroller allows me to bring food into the park to save money. I put my lunch, drinks, and snacks for the entire family. Of course, I hide it from view so it isn't anyone's business or easily viewed and stolen.
I've actually heard people looking for Harry Potter in Fantasyland. And they were not kidding.
I also have heard people asking for Mighty Mouse and wondering why Bugs Bunny is not in the Disney parks.
