    There is no "I" in Theme Park
    Ok, so what do I mean by I am going to Disneyland? Well it is simple really. When you are going to a park with thousands of people you are not the center of the universe anymore. You might still be at home, or even in your own mind, but in reality you are just one little speck in a sea of bodies all trying to have a great time. The park is there for everyone not just you. Now if you are super rich and can rent the park out for yourself one night, then yes you would be the center of the universe. Most of us though can barely afford that one day ticket, so keep in mind that there are other people in the park. It really is all quite simple; people respect others, if you bump into someone say you're sorry, if you drop some trash pick it up, and if you want to talk get out of the walkway! Think about others around you and how you like to be treated.


    It amazes me how many people forget manners and common sense when they enter the parks. I have heard the term "Stupid Guest Behavior" many times at the park. I have heard it both from annual passholders who are at the park a lot, but also from cast members who get a first hand view of it every day. Don't be stupid. No, you can not stand up on Splash Mountain. Yes, it is rude to take flash photos in the dark rides especially when you are asked not too! How would you feel if some of your friends came over to your house to visit you and when they got there they pulled up the grass, plucked your flowers, smoked in your new living room, tossed all their trash on your floor and left messes in the bathroom for you to clean up. Would you be happy with them? Would you ask them over ever again? Somehow I don't think you would because they were so rude. Well then, why are so many people so rude when they go to theme parks?"

    Good article.

    Of course, those of us who enjoy reading these things, are probably already practicing Theme Park etiquette! Ahh such is life...

    I agree. If people have to be told to use commen sense then they probably don't have any to begin with.

    So, common sense is anything but, you're saying?

    EXACTLY! Probably one of the most recent additions to the oxymoron list (it really is on the list, see for yourself at http://www.oxymoronlist.com/#c).

    Yeah, common sense has become something that folks have to learn. But, it's also just like Trigonometry, not all get it
