    DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    I was wondering......when you're at Disneyland Resort and you see someone who is clearly breaking the 'DLR Laws' - do you say something to them - in the even that a CM hasn't seen them yet? Like, for instance....some kid speeds by you on Heely's...those shoes with a roller on the heel......do you tell them to stop or inform their parent that it's against the rules....or you wait for them to crash into someone? Or you see someone throwing things from a ride........do you say something?

    What's your take on this? Ever been a volunteer enforcer of the DLR "Laws"?

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    If im with a whole group that has a problem with it, we all say something...thats just how my family is. If theres a CM near by, thats the best person to consult. Rarely would i take matters into my own hands

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    I'm not a big fan of reprimanding other people's kids, or other people in general, so if there was a CM nearby and the rule breaking was dangerous, I would tell the CM. If I saw no CM nearby and someone was in grave and immediate danger (standing up on a ride, throwing a baby into the Rivers of America), then of course I would say something.

    I don't know that I necessarily mean to reprimand kids.....that's not what I meant. But if you see someone that is clearly out of line - littering or defacing DLR property....or on their Heely's and running off of the 'road' so to speak. Do you just blurt something out or take it to a CM or what???

    Reprimanding would be to be actually stopping them, and even punishing them...which is not what I am referring to.

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    I guess in any case I would let a CM know. I just wouldn't be comfortable doing it myself.
    I had to ask myself this question a lot when I used to work at an Ice Rink, but I also skated there in my off time. After a while I decided just to offer help to people like I would if I was working, but not to inform people of the rules. Some things are just more effective if you're wearing a uniform.

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    I have spoken to CMs to ask them to relocate an errant smoker or two, but in general I am not interested in getting involved in other peoples habits. If it were dangerous to myself or others I guess I'd have to do something, but in the many years of going to the Park I cannot think of an instance where I witnessed anything that I felt required intervention.
    Are those 'heelies' forbidden at D'land? Those things are obnoxious to the max.

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    If I were a CM I would say something no matter what, but for me it just depends on the degree of the offense. Defacing property is different from rolling around on Heelys, and throwing a candy wrapper on the ground is different from throwing a cup on the ground. Aside from just speaking out or telling a CM, what am I supposed to do anyways though? Whip out an AP and say "You're under arrest sucka!"?

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    I have directed smokers (think Waterworld) to the smoking only locations and informed them that Disneyland is a non-smoking park.
    I have also picked up a popcorn container and tapped the person on the shoulder who dropped it on the ground and asked them if this is yours. They mostly look at me like I'm some kind of nut case, which of course I am because I'm on this site.

    Then congrats to you on sending a mixed message. If Disneyland were indeed a non-smoking park, there wouldn't be official smoking areas.

    I usually try not to be a vigilante, but if someone is smoking (which is my peeve), I pointedly cough, which usually sets them right.

    Re: DLR "Law Breakers"? Do you do something?

    I know kids who are far more gracefull on healies than they are in regular shoes...but rules are rules and if I were to see someone skating along in an unsafe manner I would try to bring it to someones attention lest they or someone else get hurt.

    As for smokers smoking outside of designated areas.....if it's someone in line with me you bet I am going to say something and won't relent until the ember is extiguished; but if it's just someone walking by going a different direction I don't chase them down or anything...after all, I am on vacation
