    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    Oh boy...this is such a common, recurring problem every time I go. You always have the rotten apples ruining it for the rest of the bunch.

    I've seen some nasty behavior in the parks...and I've been the victim of some disrespectful little brats too on Star Tours who thought it was funny to insult me. Of course, my g/f turned around and gave them a verbal whuppin' and shut them up. Of course, they didn't come out right away after we got off the ride. I've been told my appearance can be intimidating.

    You would think that it would've occured during Spring Break or during the Cheer competitions...it actually happened President's Day Weekend.

    I got over it. However, I'm really disappointed with how people treat Disneyland and DCA now. If they can't respect Walt's dream, they shouldn't be there at all. OF COURSE, this is a matter of my own opinion so I can't do much...just sucks how [some] people have almost zero class and dignity.

    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    Poorly behaved children are a real pet peeve of mine both outside and inside DLR. Mind you, I'm not talking about the ones who, say, cry or get upset or do normal kid things. I'm talking about the ones who aren't reigned in by their parents when they run into other people/climb on railings/kick people, etc. NO, I really DON'T think it's cute when Junior kicks me/runs into me repeatedly/stands up in the ride vehicle/etc.

    I think the fact that every attraction now has to have "parents, please watch your kids!" as part of the safety spiel really says it all...you would think that would be a default action.

    Confronting them usually does seem to work - IMHO when they try that stunt they're never expecting to be called on it.

We were walking through DLR and saw 2 teens with a Dumbo we hadn't seen before. We asked them about it and they explained you could get him at DCA on the boardwalk, but you had to play a game to do it. R was nervous because she didn't know if we could win the game (turns out it would have been fine, they are easy, but we didn't know). I was reassuring her that we would make it work somehow. The teens must have heard us as we were walking away, because they caught up with us and GAVE her the Dumbo! I pulled my wallet out and offered them the two 20's I had, but they would not take a thing. Talk about caring about other people's feelings. Those teens made the magic real for my little girl. She carried that Dumbo with her everywhere for the rest of the trip and still sleeps with it on her bed.
    Those teens had good parents, are good people, and will BE good parents someday. Just like you and your sister, Dreamer28, and so many other teens, as I am sure we can all agree. But the bad ones give you all a bad name.
    That made me tear up

    Exactly. It's the same with most kids when they are doing something wrong. If you ask them to stop most of the time they will.

    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    haven't experienced anything too far from what others have posted.

    but something that has been happening nearly every trip that seems very strange to me.. is that random little ones in line use my behind as a punching bag. it has happened the last 3 trips I've made. It is both funny and strange to me.

    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    Once we were in line for splash mountain and had gotten to the very front when they had to stop the ride because a group of kids had decided it would be cool to jump out of their logs and run all over the scenery. Well because they had to stop the ride they were forced to cycle the ride before they could let riders on again. While we were waiting for that to happen a CM appeared from backstage with the group of kids and told them to sit and wait. Then security appeared and made the kids call their parents. When the parents of the group of kids arrived he had them all hand over ticket media and took their names and escorted them out of the park. This all occurred on the other side of the loading area and everyone burst into applause. It would have been so embarrassing. But after waiting an extra 30 mins the CMs handed everyone in the waiting one of those attraction return passes and let us ride

    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    Will Disney please kick these people out of the park and refund their remaining days. If Disney actually took action, this stuff would stop. But right now, Disney will continue to allow stupid behavior.

    I remember walking from Tomorrowland toward the castle to catch fireworks, and these kids in front me of were acting up. When the kid nearly ran into me, I instinctively shoved him on to the ground and told him to cut the crap. Really, I shouldn't have to do this.

    I don't think assault and battery of a minor is ever the answer. Physical confrontation will only make matters worse and could get you in a lot of trouble.

    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    Wow, certainly bad guest behavior is sadly all too common from this very active thread!

    In February I had an extended visit to Disneyland Paris. Talk about some bad behaved guests! Standing in line for 45mins, staking my spot for the Parade on the curbside at Town Square next to a lovely English family with children I was chatting too. Moments before the parade started at father, mother and pram BACKED UP from the street and stood in front of all of us, shoving us aside, kids and all. I was gobsmaked at the audacity and rudeness. So was the nice British father, and he sternly told this family where to go, behind us all, as we had been waiting n these spots for a very long time (in 0'C, 32'F temps). They luckily then removed themselves quick smart!

    Also on on Space Mountain: Mission 2, I had a few instances. One was a group of kids, Tweens, making such a ruckus in the queue that we didn't want them in our train at all as we knew they were going to be so disruptive. We slowed down and casually moved to the side and let them pass by to go ahead, then at the loading station we made sure as the loading lines spilt to each side of the platform we were on the opposite side train to them.

    Also on Space Mountain: Mission 2 we had a seat near the rear of the train and a girl up near the front of the train filmed the entire ride on her phone, with the light shining and illuminating every set piece and effect of the ride ruining it for everyone behind her. After we disembarked I went up to her and casually said "oh hi! Did you get some good footage of the ride?" and I know she understood English as she replied Yes, "Well next time turn the light off, because you just ruined the entire ride for every other person in there" and I walked off as she stood there a bit dumbstruck. So inconsiderate of her. I've also had to turn to someone behind me filming the awesome nighttime show at DLP Disney Dreams who was using a light and tell them to turn off the light as it was ruining it for everyone. She did.
    First visit to a Disney Park was to Tokyo Disneyland in Oct, 2005. I was hooked! Was so blessed to visit Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea in 2009, the original Disneyland and California Adventure in 2010, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea in 2011, and an incredible 5 night stay at Disneyland Paris in February 2013.

    That bugs me. It's not the responsibility of the nice people to move so that the rude people can enjoy themselves more. If anything it's letting them win. I'm sure that I'm somehow the bad guy for standing my ground but as nice and non-confrontational as your party was, it just bugs me to see the nice guys have to let the jerks have their way. Either way, I guess I should say good for you for finding a way around the problem. I'd like to think karma will come around on them someday but so much for the sake of everyone else's day in the park.

    Re: Guests behaving badly on rides

    I remember when I was a kid I saw these teenagers spitting from the Skyway carts onto people's heads, even at 10 I thought that was disgusting. I also remember when you had to wait in the whole queue for Space Mountain and I saw these people stick a bunch of gum on the blackened windows that peered into the ride. More recently I've seen kids try to chicken fight with each other on the Silly Symphony swings. My personal favorite is when parents let their kids bang on the oil drums in the Roger Rabbit ride for a straight 5-6 minutes or however long you're stuck in there.
