    Table Etiquette

    As long as everyone is talking about Fantastic etiquette, let's also talk about table etiquette at the restaurant and other food locations in the park. When I was a working lead at the PLaza Inn Restaurant, we always had to contend with people constantly savinig tables for their friends and families to be able to watch the fireworks, during the summer. this was going on when the line went way out the door at the Plaza Inn. Naturally, this completely pissed me off, especially for the paying guest coming out after purchasing their meals and finding no place to sit. At first, we were not able to ask others to vacate the tables, but finally our managers relented and let us proceed to asking non paying guests to move, which of course made me ecstatic. I think this is the one of the most rudest things a guest can do to another guest. When I eat there to this day, I still see it happening, so things have not changed. I wish they would change the restaurant to a waiter/waitress service like the Blue Bayou. The dining are constantly looks like a pig stive. Also the guests never allow the bussers to do their job properly and clean the tables. Guests would put trays on the trash cans, adjoining tables, even on the ground. Talk about lousy etiquette. Some people need to be taken back to etiquette school.

    Re: Table Etiquette

    You are absolutely right in this. Nowadays, rude behavior all around seems to be the norm. I have seen this everywhere I go now being that I am out so much with nothing better to do. It just astounds me how people will eat lunch or dinner someplace and then just leave with all the trash on the table and/or floor like it's somebody else's problem. I wonder if they do this at home? If so, I would never go there. It's just another side effect of our society degrading itself to the lowest common denominator. We are becoming a race of savages again, though we still consider ourselves to be civilized. So I guess we are now "Civilized Savages".

    Well put Lost Boy. I can even recall several times, mothers changing their baby's diapers and actually leaving them on the chairs and walking away. Such idiocy, that proves to me that the majority of people are absolute morons. They actions prove it alone.

    ok..I have a question...I always wonder what to do at the french m,arket and rancho del zaco 9sp?)...they give you real dishes and silverware. I have extreme guilt leaving my mess on the table, but I don't see anywhere to put it either....am I suppsoe to leave it or is there somewhere to put it? I have thought about taking it to the trash can, but then there would just be dirty plates on top of that.

    No, you just leave it on the table. It is the responsibility of the bussers to take of the plates. You not need worry about it. That is what they are paid to do. So, next time, don't feel obligated.

    Re: Table Etiquette

    I also recall several times that they used to be these sort of homeless people who would stroll around the PLaza Inn dining area searching for empty tables with food on it. They would then sit down, nonchalantly, and start eating the remnants of the uneaten food and drinks. I called security several times to chase them off and they were actually escorted out of the park. No that is some sick crap going on!!! How did they get into the park in the first place.

    Re: Table Etiquette

    I've been to some restaurants that were basically buffeteria style, but once you got to the seating area there was a host or hostess to seat you. Every time I've been somewhere with this system, seating has functioned so smoothly. Parties of two aren't hogging tables that seat eight. The host/ess knows what tables are open so the patrons aren't left wandering around with full trays. When hosts and hostesses working together with bussers, tables get cleared promptly and lingering patrons are subtly encouraged to leave, if necessary.

    Of course, that requires more staff, so it's not likely to happen.
