    Re: The Gum wall of Indy!

    I think the thing with the gum for most people is a monkey see monkey do type of thing. People see that others have put gum in some place and then they think bah no one will notice.
    The earth is round.... or so i've found.

    I agree, I've never seen an excess of gum in any one place at Disneyland.

    Re: The Gum wall of Indy!

    Only place I've ever seen an abundance of gum constantly in Disneyland is the Matterhorn tunnel entrances. Guess I've just been lucky on Indy, but I wouldn't doubt it's presence all over. It's all these teenagers today thinking they can do what they want, when they want, where they want. Well, not all teenagers, but a very vocal, very unmannered group of them. There are a lot of them out there who are really great and respectful, but some, just don't care and it's really sad. Gives the rest a bad name.

    There really needs to be some kind of active punishment for this kind of behavior. It is private property, then would be perfectly within their rights to require that anyone sticking gum to a surface be made to clean up ALL the gum on that surface. Litering is illegal, is it not, in the state of CA?

We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    It's things like this that made Singapore ban chewing gum entirely, although the law had been relaxed somewhat.

    Although I agree that people can be disgusting and it shouldn't be tolerated, but this really falls on Disney. It's their responsibilty to clean up after their guests, no matter how rude and disgusting they are.

    does this means that the public doesn't have to have a sense of social responsibility?

    I think if you can't chew gum responsibly - you shouldn't have gum priviledges (sp?)

    Um no, not every one. I have never or will never dispose of my gum by sticking it on a wall or on the underside of a piece of furniture. It's just disgusting. Just shows that one idiot decides to put their gum on the walls on a ride at Disneyland and it leads to other idiots to do the same. What the hell is wrong with people? This is such a disgusting habit to do. There are sooooo many trash cans in Disneyland, people can't wait what...another 5 feet before doing something gross? It's insane to see people do this at Disneyland or anywhere else in public...to think how they treat their home.

    How do you suggest that we enforce these gum privleges? Search all guests for packs of Juicyfruit? For as long as Disneyland has been in exsistence there have been people who litter and have disregard for Disney property. I don't find that behavior acceptable. If a cast member sees that behavior they can choose to deal with it according to company policy. But we can't have CMs lurking in all the dark parts of the Indy looking for people sticking gum to the walls. But we can have a person walk the attraction each night and report excessive amounts of trash and waste, and have it removed.
    Although the problem starts with rude guests, it is, in the end Disneyland's problem to fix.

    Look at this picture of the bat cave part of the queue in Indy. Disgusting.

    Re: The Gum wall of Indy!

    Who raises their kids to be that kind of a person!? What parent lets their kids get away with throwing trash around without disciplining them so when a teenager or adult they think it's ok!?

    My parents made me pick up every bit of trash I ever just "dropped". By the time I was 10 I didn't do it anymore and I didn't even "rebel" as a teenager. It was just a part of me by then to throw my garbage away, or hold on to it until I could.

    I blame parents on this one, more than the kids. Though kids should know better themselves (maybe that's parents fault also).

    Re: The Gum wall of Indy!

    I found a website that says "Gum is not, and never has been, sold inside Disneyland. Any gum found on the ground is scraped up immediately. Walt didn't want his guests to have to pick gum off their shoes every ten minutes, as was (and is) common at other amusement parks. Alcohol is also not available in any public area of the park."

    I had heard that before though.

    Especially when there are so many starving people in this world that would love to have their own gumwall. We are so wasteful.
