There are two things that will ruin a trip to any park even outside Disney.
At Epcot just as I was going over a bridge and heading to Japan there was a humugous herd of people all dressed alike and they owned the park. I yelled in Spanish some things since i had been warned about Brazilians. Them young people were flying out of the way of a fat lady in an ECV yelling is a language similar to their own. These groups from all over the world literally will plow threw your group, run over anything in their way and will do anything to make their life easier at other peoples' expense.
STROLLER, I HATE STROLLERS. How about the father who whipped past me with a kid on his shoulders and was pushing a stroller in DCA. He stops suddenly in front of me and turns in my face and yells right through me to his family that he had left behind.
They leave strollers in door ways, aisles and walk ways. They mow down people and do not seem to care that if a 300 pound man or woman falls backward onto a stroller then the parent will have a tortilla instead of a kid. It hurts when you hit the ground but they do not seem to care. The kids do not want to be rolled through the clothes and get wopped in the face by packages.
My worst parent story is at the tram. I had a Japanese couple and their little daughter right on the line of the tram at DLR. Behind me was a man pushing on me with all his might, he was leaning on me. He had between his chest and my back his little kid who was getting pounded. I yelled in spanish and english to stop pushing but he would not listen. If I had let in to him then I would have shoved the Japanese family in front of a tram. Oh no I smell a third pet peeve coming on, parents who do not treat kids right.

People who shout at their kids. I heard a woman threaten to leave her son behind at the entrance gate cos he didn't want to go on Tower of Terror. He was only about 5 and he looked so scared. She was really yelling at him, saying he was spoiling her trip and stuff.
I know its easy for me to say as I don't have kids, but its meant to be the happiest place on earth!

One thing about Brazillians, they don't speak Spanish, they speak Porteguese

My grandmother was the daughter mine owners in Chihuahua, Mexico and could speak spanish, native indian, french and latin. She married a man from the Azores islands who spoke only Portuguese and some english.
The languages are very similar sounding.
I agree with the way people treat kids. A very fat lady at DLR's Alice in Wonderland sat in front of me with her daughter who was about 6 - 8 years old. All through the ride the lady was videotaping while her daughter sat in terror of the dark ride. The fat lady then took her purse, camera bag, video camera, and another bag and left the ride and her daughter behind. I got the kid off the ride and watch as the kid smashed her fingers in the turnstile. Just left the kid there on the ride. Yo lady you got a kid here, you want it?
They do not seem to understand the danger of falling off of a rail onto your head or that the water in the c****s are full of duck doo doo at the c**** boats. They become kids and are into the atmosphere so much that they forget the kids and often granny also.
Walking zombies are annoying also. People too often push themselves to the point that they cry, pout, rage, rant or otherwise are not enjoying the stuff around them. Lines are too long and lets keep going and not stand in line for 10 minutes for soda.
As for foreign guests I have foreign grandparents who learned english. People in Tokyo do not cut in line and people in Bulgaria do not shove and push in line. I can understand third world problems like goosing people, sandwiching a line, and getting way too close for comfort as that is the way they do it there. Being from another culture or country does not give you the right to goose me or cut in line. In another place you do as they do.

It wont be fun when a 300 pound lady like me falls on top of you or smashes you to a wall. It is funny to hit and knock people down but trust me on this because I have been thrown to the ground by a running guest, stroller and worst was an ECV. I hurt from those falls, fast moving people scare me and I fear falling and not getting up ever or even dying.

Parents who DON'T control their kids! That drives me crazy anywhere I go.
People who shove you to get on the transportation to/from the resort before you do.
People who cut lines.
People who get all up in your space while waiting. This is my space people. That's yours!

I have a disintegrating disc and am worse that a horse when it comes to being touched there. Like Princess said it is so bad now that people are inches from you and some times goose you, poke you , and whack your legs with kids and packages. In 1998 I bailed out of the line and over bushes at Dinosaur because the stopped line got so packed you could not breathe or turn.

shoes with wheels aren't allowed at Disney, I really think they should try to enforce that more. I could just see some kid running into me, because he wasn't paying attention.
