I think things like this have a snowball effect. If the park is keeping up on them, and everything is looking pristine, it's that much more difficult for a guest to throw their stuff on the ground. But if the park is not staying on top of it, it's easier for a guest to figure, why not?
People are just gross in general, I work in a hotel and you should see what 90% of the rooms look like after someone checks out, or heck even daily, with daily housekeeping service people still manage to trash a room to a most disgusting point.
People these days tend to be in the, its not mine, someone is paid to deal with it, so why should I care kind of thinking.
I don't know why, but I really don't pay much attention to this kind of stuff. I really only focus on the things that are beautiful within the park. Sure, there will always be certain things that can be improved, but overall, the parks are extremely well maintained and are spectacular works of art. IMHO......
To all who come to this Happy Place.... WELCOME șoș

okay, when im in the park, im one of those who look around and notice the details of things, and i take great appreciation to the detailing of the place. and of course the cleaness and upkeep of the park.
i love to see when theres trash a cast member rushes to pick it up to keep the place as it should be.
but just as they are with the trash, i wish they would be like that with the PAINT of showbuilding and small places around the park.
one day i actually took the time to wait for Space Mountain which is something i dont normally do.
but the Queue MY GOODNESS the whole outside area, where you can see all of tomorrowland and into the starcade. it looks so dirty, dusty, and run down. where the people mover track used to be where you can see in, looks terrible it is such an eye sore to me.
and also their will be kids running around towards the center hanging off things and sitting up against the walls in the middle.
BUT the point to my rant is
.... i wish they would notice repaint and touch up areas like this to always keep the place looking as NEW and fresh as possible i mean is a little paint too much to ask for?
Maybe in the off-season.
What? There is no off-season?

The only thing we can do is be active in helping the park stay beautiful, despite the inconsiderate guests. What? Not your job to do that? No, not really. But it doesn't hurt me to pick up the trash out of the HM queue line and throw it away. And I know I did a little something to keep the magic alive for someone else who didn't have to see it.

I'm with you on this. So much so that we're not making our annual visit this year - any maybe not next year either.
There's too much peeling paint, long overdo maintenance, debris and even burned out light bulbs that go day after day without any attention (including Main St.). It wreaks of corporate mentality and lets me know that the people in charge don't care.
They don't realize that when they lose the magic, it sucks a little out of us too.
one of my wife's favorite rides is Winnie the Pooh, which we rode this past Saturday - the one thing that kept jumping out at me was how dirty the floors were INSIDE the ride. It just really needed a good mopping. I could only imagine how much brighter and nicer it would have been if that was done.
