The thing I hate the most, which is common at most themeparks, is when one or two people are in front of you in the queue, and then it turns out they have been 'saving a place for somebody', with the somebody turning out to be about 15 other people.
Fun...fun...fun...well, just me I suppose...

20K...nope, not just you. Same thing goes for the one person who "saves" a parade watching spot for 20 people!!!
Then of course, there's the now famous story of the woman and the chalk circle. But that may be for another thread.
Granny (Yep, I really am a guy)
Brazilian (no offense here... put in your nation of choice) groups of 400 kids all in ornage shirts screaming, pushing, yelling, singing, acting rowdy and rude, and following the lady with the flag... (right out the entrance would be fine with me)

I remember my trip back in 2000 with a friend of mine as sort of a graduation present to ourselves. There were about 50 groups of people just like that and they got on my last nerve! So, I'm with you Lou!

There will always be some annoying things and people when visiting WDW, and a lot of them have been mentioned here, but my biggest pet peeve is when I get to the end of my visit there and I have to go home! LOL
the thing i hate most is how long i have to wait before i can go!! (and how long in between my trips there)
I really hope I don't make anyone angry, but I really hate it when I see a mom trucking her newborn around in the southern florida heat! Hello?! Why would you do that? Leave them at home w/ the grand parents!
Also- even though it's been said already...- Cussing & smoking! I've gone up to people & asked them to please not cuss- Hello? It's Disney World. I've also let people know where the smoking sections were & weren't!
I guess that's all & I also guess it's worth it!

People who stop in the middle of the flow of traffic to read their map.
People who stand in line, eat, talk on the phone, gripe loudly, and call all 40 of their closest relatives to join them when at the front of the line, shoving everyone else back for quit a ways. Yes, I really hate this and think it is heinous, rude, wrong, loathsome and disrespectful. A couple of folks, fine, small children-thank you, but grownups who wanted to shop?
Anyone who changes a diaper, in line and lays it down and leaves it for everyone else to deal with.
Parent who allow their children to eat in the stores and touch the merchandise with their sticky hands oblivious to the destruction.
Gum stuck in anything but a rubbish bin.
Anyone who is rude and snotty to the cast members, characters, vendors and other guests. (Smug, superior people just need a clue)
Shall I continue?
Just kidding, venting is really great therapy, let's do this more often. I feel better.
This year on our annual trip we finally got that perfect spot underneath Tink's flight at the fireworks. We were leaning up against the railing, 3 adults, 3 little ones in strollers. People were actually climbing the railing and using my kids strollers as support. When one guy dropped a bottle of water on my 5 year olds head, I lost it. Mind you, I didn't start swearing, but I was loud enough for the nearest CM to hear me. The CM stayed with us till the end of the fireworks. By this time there were 10 - 15 CMs standing around the rose garden. The cast member helped us get to Main Street without getting trampled. The people in the rose garden, well the CMs made them stay there until the area was clear and they got a stern talking to about manners and your behavior in Mickeys house.
My other pet peeve....people who use their strollers as battering rams. Come on, you don't have a kid in there!

I have a pet peeve that they aren't putting Robin Hood world in Kingdom Hearts 2..........
edit: Scratch that, my pet peeve is that they don't give some of their movies the attention that they deserve......like Robin Hood, or the Black Cauldron
All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.
Who watches the watchmen?
i def have a pet peeve about sticky little fingers on merchandise and people who just throw shirts around off the racks and leave them on the floor...i work in retail and i have had to refold, mark out of stock damaged items, and deal with these types of problems...believe me it is no fun...i mean, you wouldn't treat your friends clothes like that so why do it do Mickey's??
i am also in agreement with the strollers/battering rams, i was once practically run over by one with no sorry and i turned around and said "well excuse you" and just got a dirty look...hey man you ran over my foot(there wasn't even a child in the stroller)...

I agree, I can NOT deal with people who let their children do whatever they want in line. Kids who are so close to you, other people might think you gave birth to them yourself. And sometimes, you start to think that yourself. Children who are backed up against your butt, basically leaning on you (oh how I love it when they do this right after they've been on Kali River Rapids or Splash Mountain) and stepping all over your feet in line.
Oh, and there are certain ethnic groups whom I assume it it against their beliefs to use deoderant... Atleast that's how it seems when you're closed up with them in certain areas. Like AE/SGE... ack. I don't understand how the other people they are with can not smell it... are they just used to the smell because they ALL don't use deoderant, or what?
this is what dreams are made of
