There are times when I get aggrivated at the people who cut in line in front of me. The worse is the trail of a dozen people who just walk by you heading up to their "friend" or "parent" or just some place in line. The problem I see outside of Disney is that the queues are so long (i.e. Goliath, The Riddler, Batman @ SFMM, a lot at Kings Dominion) and far from any employee you cannot report it, unless you get out of line, losing your own place.
I have never had problems at a Disney park. Even I have stepped out of really long wait time lines to use the bathroom and the people around you in line are cool with that.
But when someone passes you that you have not seen in the line at all, that's when I want to see them removed from the park. But beating up the person? That's just crossing the line for cutting the line.
Chronic back problems?? Sound like the usual frivolous law suit. This whole thing sounds fishy to me… I am sure she will sue Disney for not providing her with the proper protection…..
We need Thunder-dome two men enter, one man leaves! Heck this could be a new attraction for the parks…. “F U - I’ll see you in Thunder Dome.”
However, many people remain singe file, and even get hostile to those who actually do listen to the cast members and step forward to fill in all the available space.
The fact that both moms ended up in the same load group makes me wonder if this was, in fact, what happened when the accused claimed the victim "cut in line."
I have no way of knowing that, but I've seen that type of situation play out hundreds of times.
Cutting in line and ill behaved "guests" really annoy me.
Our fellow contributors who advocate walking away from trouble are absolutely 100% right.
Unfortunately most of us , myself included , find this hard to do. If you've waited patiently in line for a long time ,along with many other well mannered guests, then having someone cut in front just isn't going to happen.
Maybe..........and I hate myself for suggesting this.....all lines , particularly at busy periods,could have a cast member in attendance to police it.
Unobtrusively of course..........but there nonetheless.
Prevention is better than cure ?
