Disney World might be the Most Magical Place on Earth, but it can also be the most stressful place on earth.
Between worrying about wait times, park pass reservations, and dining reservations, your stress levels can easily rise while in the parks. But it’s important to keep your cool amidst the stress and treat others with kindness, and that’s exactly what Disney is reminding guests to do now.
If you visit the Disney World Reopening and Updated Experiences website (what is now titled “Getting Ready for Your Visit to Walt Disney World Resort”), you’ll see a few key reminders for your trip. This is where you can see mask recommendations, comments about theme park reservations, and more.
Currently, the website also features a reminder about Courtesy.
The icon shows individuals shaking hands and says “Be the magic you want to see in the world.”
When you tap to read more, you’ll see a message from Disney indicating that guests “must always remember to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. Those who can’t live up to this simple wish may be asked to leave Walt Disney World Resort.”
It then redirects individuals to the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules website. That page has a number of rules about guest actions in the parks, including one that says, “Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running except in designated areas.”
These are important reminders for all guests to keep in mind as they go about the parks, especially as it relates to Cast Members. Being mean or rude to Cast Members is one of the worst things people do at Disney.
We know that a day in the parks can be stressful, especially with complicated family relationships or crying kiddos thrown into the mix. But it’s important to remember that Cast Members are just doing their jobs and trying to create magic for others as much as they can.
And whether you interact with a Cast Member or other guest in the parks, it’s also important to keep in mind that you never know what another person may be going through. They could have recently lost a loved one, be dealing with mental health challenges, or be facing a multitude of other difficult moments. A little kindness in those moments can go a long way.
So, as Disney’s reminder states, remember to be the magic you want to see in the world.

Or just not go at all. Last time I was at Disney it was a huge disappointment, prices and staff rudeness (yes I complained to Disney with no results)…after dozen of times going there over the years, I have finally given up with Disney.
The “saving places in line” is something that is not well enforced. I see entire families jump the line to get to “catch up” to the one person in their party that waited in line.
