All I know is that people sure love to complain on MiceChat. For being the happiest place on Earth, some of its most loyal fans are the most miserable people around.
Taking secret pictures of people at the park and making an example of them on a public board is wrong. They aren't breaking a law; they're eating food.
Do people not have a right to some privacy while at the park? How many of you would like it if someone took a secret photo of you posted just so you can be trashed you on a message board?
The fact that so many people care that these people are eating KFC is really bizarre. This issue is between Disney and these people and not some nosey guest who wants to be the rules police.
If it got through the check area, then it was OK with Disney. If no cast member went up to them and did anything about it, it must not be a big deal.
If you have issue with this kinda stuff, take it up with Disney for their inconsistancy in rule enforcement. Most of the anger, though, seems to come from jealousy.
