There are a LOT of trends in Disney World, including ones that have lasted FOREVER.
For example, pin trading is such a HUGE thing now that even Cast Members get in on the fun. Other trends include things like Disneybounding, which is also fun. However, maybe some trends really should NOT be happening, and when we asked you, our AllEars readers about it, you had some opinions.
Here’s what you told us about the cringiest trends in Disney World. Granted, some of these are hot takes, but we love hearing what our readers have to say.
Reader Blair pointed out a trend that we’ve all questioned at some point: throwing hair ties on Expedition Everest. “Leaving hair ties on Everest.. or anywhere.. it’s disgusting.. and it’s hazardous to animals.”
Cinnamon pointed out that this trend was also starting in other areas of the parks: “Throwing things on rides. I saw a post earlier about hair ties on Everest. I was just there and on the roof in TMR gum was all over, gift cards, etc. Gross! I also saw hair ties on Living with the Land. Come on! Stop it!”
According to Megan, no ride is sacred, “I’m not sure if this counts but hair-ties being thrown at Everest. Just got off the Three Caballeros and they started throwing them there too. It’s gross. Just stop.”
A lot of you also had some hot takes about guests in matching t-shirts. Michelle answered, “The family trips of 15+ people in matching shirts that clog up the walkways.”
Kathy pointed out a very specific set of matching t-shirts: “Matching couples t-shirts indicating she loves the magic and he pays for the magic.”
Okay, this one is certainly going to be controversial, but a few of our readers mentioned popcorn buckets, including Jennifer, who answered simply, “I have to say Popcorn Buckets.”
There were plenty of you who agreed with her, too! Erika specified what seemed to be the problem, though: “I was so going to say this too. I’ll just hop on and say yes! And not completely the bucket but people that will wait four hours in line to get one.”
Dianna commented, “Also, the rampant over-commercialism. It’s silly to pay any money for a popcorn bucket, and we all know it.”
Yes, we remember the chaos over the Figment Popcorn Bucket last year… .
Some of our readers think Bubble Wands need to go. Patti said, “I agree with the bubble wands. Bubbles bubbles everywhere!! Lol”
Angela is also not a fan of bubble wands: “Bubble wands!! They’re EVERYWHERE…”
Lynne agrees, “Every time I walk through a sea of bubbles I say (in my head) bubble wands are the bane of my existence 😂”.
Tammy said, “Bubble machines….when you’re stuck standing behind one of them, inhaling soap doesn’t make for the most pleasant experience.”
Okay, we get it, y’all have a LOT of opinions about trends at Disney World, and while you all didn’t agree on all these trends, we get it! So when you come across something that’s a trend that you find cringey, take a deep breath and remember that you’re still in the most magical place on Earth.
