Disney World can be a super fun vacation, but there are some parts of it that aren’t so fun.
It’s important to keep in mind that you’re around a lot of people trying to have a nice trip. Some actions can be bothersome to others. Here are some things every Disney guest should avoid!
People HATE when you do this in Disney World:
Take Flash Photos on Dark Rides
The experience of a dark ride requires being in the dark — so much so that it’s in the name! It’s a real bummer when someone takes a flash photo and ruins the carefully designed lighting and effects.
Cut In Line
A big part of Disney World vacations is waiting in line and that can suck, but everyone has to do it. It can be super irritating when you see that guests have cut in front of you in line!
Ignore Personal Space
Sure, Disney World is crowded, but you should still try to give space to the people around you. This is especially true with the global health crisis. A lot of folks are a lot comfier with a little more space!
Break the Rules
Disney World is a fun place, but it does have a few rules. Remember, rules are there for a reason! Don’t bring in restricted items like selfie sticks, and don’t forget to follow the directions of Cast Members.
Ignore Your Kids
It can be quite the bother when someone else’s kiddo keeps bumping into you in line or ignoring the rules. Make sure you’re keeping an eye on your rambunctious little ones to make sure they aren’t messing with other guests!
Be Rude to Cast Members
Perhaps one of the worst things a Disney guest can do is be rude to Cast Members. Cast Members are awesome and tend to make a lot of magic so it can be super off-putting to see these beloved folks at the receiving end of some rude behavior.
Block the View
We know, we know. You really want your kiddo to be able to see the fireworks. But the five-foot-tall family behind you might have staked out their spot for hours. Take your kiddo off your shoulders, lower the cell phone, and make sure you’re not blocking the view of those behind you.
Loudly Quote the Rides
Yes, we love the quotes on Haunted Mansion, but quoting them loudly can mess with the experience of those around you who may be experiencing the attraction for the first time!
Spoil The Magic
Regardless of whether you believe that’s really Mickey Mouse or really Tinker Bell, try not to loudly declare your disbelief to those around you. There are plenty of kids and adults, too, who are experiencing that magic, and you could be ruining it.
Block the Pathway
Disney World has plenty of space to walk around, but if you grab a seat or spread out your whole family, you could be in other peoples’ way!
Disney World is non-smoking, but people still bring in cigarettes and vape pens. Don’t do this! It’s against the rules and can be a massive bother to (not to mention a potential threat to the health of) other guests.
Go Past Your Limits
Drinking around the world in EPCOT can be fun, and we love an afternoon spent at Nomad Lounge, but be careful not to over-imbibe. These are family theme parks, and you don’t want to ruin another group’s vacation by overdoing things.
Fight and Curse
Similar to some of the above items, Disney World is a happy place for many. Sure, tensions can run high, but try to refrain from loudly fighting and cursing when you’re out and around others.
