We've all done it. We've abused some part of the Disney system. Whether it be saying that our friend "lost" their Fastpass, or complaining to CM's in order to get perks, most of us are guilty of doing some kind of wrong thing and getting away with it at Disneyland. The problem is, sometimes we start expecting to get through these loopholes, are start to feel that since we have AP's, we're better than other folks. We know about how the fastpass system works, so we exploit it, we know all the spiels on the rides, so we say them out loud to impress other guests who could really care less.
Disney has stood by the "customer is always right" motto for decades. However, this has created a type of customer that believes it is always right under any and all circumstances. Not good. We all know that if you make a big enough fuss, Disney would go out of its way to make you happy. Also not good. We have come to expect to be catered to and have to be held in a higher regard. That speaks volumes about the way Disney handles situations, but man, it has turned its fans into spoiled brats.
AP's have a bad name, so do hardcore Disney fans. All because some people can't get over that entitlement mode of thinking. In actuality, an AP makes you less entitled to anything. The guest that visits once a year or every decade is the one who should be pampered. Not us locals who visit whenever we want and cry foul when Disney does something to please the single day visitor. Anyone else feel the same or different?
