    Actually it's illegal in the US to block transmissions on purpose (ie: cell phones, radios). I only know this because my math teacher LOATHES cells and he took probably a halfhour discussng the research he's done in that. They block cell phones in churches down in Mexico. While I don't think they should block them in DL, but in the shows like Aladdin or HISA it might be good. Also in just plain movies and theatre shows. As a college student it REALLY bothers me that in the middle of a final some chicks cell rings and she gets the audacity to answer it and talk. Same thing on rides, keep it silent or on vibe.

    Mine is on silent on rides. With my old phone it was on vibrate when I was on rides but this one only has "high & vibrate" so that doesn't work
    Once in a great while I forget but I"m pretty dang good about it.
    I get reception on HM, I didn't know that until yesterday though when I got a tm from Disguy on HM!

    I never answer my phone in the park I keep it in my back pack just in case of an emergency. ... Well I do answer it if it's one of the kids and they are off on their own. That way we know where to meet up. Otherwise the call can wait until I get back to the hotel or have a few moments where I can slip into a corner just to check my messages.

    We only use Cell phones in the park to communicate with each other instead of radios...since you can end up with cross talk. Its funny though, everytime I am on the tram from the garage to the park I get a call from my old work wanting to know if I can come in for a shift (I live in Colorado) . I haven't worked for them for over a year!

    Actually thats not true. There are massive transmission blockers in Las Vegas in the Casino's. My company does business in some of the bigger ones (The Venetian, NYNY, etc) and you can NOT get me or any of our staff when we are a gaming area, bar or anywhere that gambling is happening.

    Just a friendly FYI.

    Yeah, that's the main reason on why I bring my Cell to Disneyland...it can be very hard to contact someone on walkie talkies in the park, cause of the extremely large number of people that carry them there. ^^; I've never had to answer my cellphone on a ride, yet...I don't get that many calls, anyway.

    But, if by slim chance this year it does, my ringer won't be -totally- out of place...my main cell ringtone is "Grim Grinning Ghosts".

    I see alot of people on their cells in line, but I have not heard a cell during a ride. personally I keep my phone on silent/vibrate which is probably why I miss the calls of mice Chatters from time to time (Sorry guys).

    I confess that my cell phone went off on POTC during the battle scene. In my defense though, when we got on the ride everything was fine, but when we went down the waterfalls, all the power went out. So aside from the exit lighting, we were sitting mostly in the dark with no soundtrack.

    That time, and that time only, I answered my phone. Just to say, I'm on POTC, with no lights or sound! Weird. Others on the boat laughed, thankfully. Who knew it could ring down there?

    And at the time, my ring was The Simpsons theme.
    A signature should go here.

    My phone is always on low or vibrate, but I never get reception on any attractions. Never had an issue with this before with any other guests. Guess I am just lucky.

    My prof will be happy to hear that maybe he can still up my grade.

    What I really hate about cell phone users in the park in general is when they stop and talk in the middle of a walk way!!! Strollers and in my case a dog has to dodge them. If they are moving at a decent pace or off to the side I could care less.

    I haven't noticed them being a big problem in the parks (now, light spinners, on the other hand...)

    However, I've noticed them being a huge problem in the movie theater. Unfortunately, I've also been mortified once or twice to hear my own phone ring, and have to quiet the phone. I haven't quite figured out what special trick my phone requires after I set it to silent to get it to stay that way, though I have some theories I will try next time I'm feeling lucky. Luckily, my phone has this (occasionally annoying) tendency to stop making sound the moment I touch it, so stopping the ring is easy enough, but then I go to turn it off and it plays this huge ditty, so I have to sit on it while it shuts off. I hate it when I my phone doesn't silence.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
