Disney Adults Share Their BIGGEST Red Flags from the Parks

Disney World is magical, but the experience doesn’t always feel that way in the moment.

We’ve feel like we’ve seen it all in our time at Disney World! So, we wanted to find out what your thoughts were about the BIGGEST Red Flags you’ve seen from the parks. Well, we asked and boy, did you deliver!

We reached out to our followers on Facebook to ask: “What’s a red flag you see ALL THE TIME in Disney World?” The results were pretty varied. We had quite a few people leave their opinions in the comments!

What do you think?

Now, let’s dive into some of the results!

1. Verbal Spats with Cast Members

Coming in at number one with 89 mentions is witnessing individuals or families verbally fighting or arguing with Cast Members. Seriously, folks? We’re in the most magical place on Earth, and you’re gonna argue with the folks making the magic happen? Not cool.

We love Guillermo!

Summing up this point, one of you mentioned: “Families or individuals verbally fighting, or arguing with cast members. I’ll ask questions but all they can do is what they are trained to do. I may not like my answer but it isn’t their fault. I can wait and just let the wife listen to my complaining after they are gone.”

Another also mentioned: “Yes..it’s like yelling at the person who answers the phone for your utility bill…that’s not the person that screwed up your bill…they can only do what their job requires…”

2. Pushing Kids Past Their Limits

With 76 mentions, pushing a little one past their limit because mom and dad are trying to cram in all the fun is a common red flag. We get it, parents, you want to squeeze every ounce of fun out of your Disney vacay, but dragging tired, cranky kids around the park isn’t doing anyone any favors.

Dumbo the Flying Elephant

This specific response was the majority consensus: “Pushing a little one past their limits because mom and dad are trying to cram in all the fun. (I’m guilty of this). Respect the limits!”

Another mentioned: “So true. Kids are pooped and parents still pushing.”

3. Loud & Obnoxious Tour Groups

75 mentions highlight the annoyance of loud and obnoxious tour groups, often led, ironically, by someone carrying a flag. These rowdy groups act like they own the place.

This response sums up the sense of irony: “often lead by someone with a flag…”

Another mentioned: “Acting like they are entitled and own the parks.”

4. Kids on Shoulders During Fireworks

Look, we get that you want your little one to have the best view of the fireworks, but blocking the view for everyone behind you? Not cool. With 66 mentions, it’s time to find a better vantage point.

One of you mentioned: “…especially when they are already close to the stage for a stage show.”

Another mentioned: “…especially in the wheelchair area!”

5. Yelling at Kids for Having Fun

Hey, parents, let the kids be kids, okay? Remember, that Disney is supposed to be magical for everyone, including children. Clocking in at 57 mentions, this one can be a real downer.

This response summed it up nicely: “Yelling at kids when they’re just having fun. When they are already displaced out of their normal routine, but are expected to behave the same as if they’ve already learned how to navigate the world the way an adult would. When they are overstimulated and can’t regulate themselves in a crowded area. In a nutshell, some of you parents need to have a little more patience with your growing and learning children.”

Another mentioned: “Forgetting children are children…”

6. Line-Cutting Excuses

“But I’m just joining my family!” Yeah, yeah, we’ve heard it all before. With 38 mentions, cutting the line and using family reunions as an excuse isn’t fooling anyone.

One of you mentioned: “People who cut in line claiming to be joining family. Personally, a cast member should be required to escort them to meet their family! No cast member escort = …wait in line like the rest of us!”

Another mentioned: “Also, line cutters. That sends my annoyance level sky high.”

  1. I have “caught up to my family” before but I would never lie about it. Why would someone do that just to skip a few places in line?

  2. Don’t forget some ‘green’ flags like noticing a quiet place (valuable beyond measure if you have a ‘volatile’ person with you) and short lines at recently opened stands or registers.
