    I can't think of a time when I've ever referred to it as Walt Disney World in conversation.

    Really Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    All the different "correct" ways to spell Walt Disney World and Disneyland... i.e. Disney Land, DisneyLand, Disneyworld, WaltDisneyWorld

    I thought the same thing too when I read that... usually the people that say Walt Disney World are newbies

    Seems like some people may be too picky in what we call things. Cinderella Castle is just known as the castle to me, the tea cups are just the tea cups, Peter Pan's Flight is just Peter Pan and so on. I'll admit that if someone started calling The Tower of Terror the elevator ride I might be annoyed but it is what it is.

    Agreed. Or people who go early (and therefore are in front of me, rightly so), but who park their strollers right in front, and then when the parade starts stand their kids up ON the strollers and they themselves stand up, instead of sitting on the curb (and yet not letting other kids sit on the curb in front of them). That one has maybe already been discussed on here, but grrr it makes me mad.

    I don't really have a pet peeve but I do avoid Mouse Gear in Epcot. That store isn't exactly smell-o-rific.

    Finally! Someone agrees with me that Mouse Gears is REVOLTING! I go in the store anyway though...

    Re: Disney Pet Peeves

    I hate hate HATE litterbugs at Disney. It's bad enough to be putting up with that stuff in the real world but dang it, I come to Disney to get away from stuff like that. WHERE I find trash makes it worse. I swear, someone threw trash in Snow White's well in front of her ride. SNOW WHITE'S WELL! >< My sister says she saw trash at Minnie's house too. Poor Minnie. You know she likes to keep her house neat and tidy. After hearing that, I wanted to see Minnie shoo everyone out of her house and lock it up so she could clean XD

    Re: Disney Pet Peeves

    Wow. Color me impressed this thread is still going strong.

    Here's another story for you. We're waiting in line at the MK bus stop trying to get back to ASMovies after park closing. Being essentially steerage, there was about a billion people in line. A bus pulls up and some dude with a stroller just arrives and tries to immediately board the bus. This sparked the edge-of-revolt murmuring from the massive line, as you would expect. The murmur wasn't so loud we couldn't hear the cast member tell the guy, "Sir, I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait in line. See this line? These are all people waiting to get on this bus." His reply was simply astounding. He says, rather peevishly, "But, I'm with a *child*!" This caught the CM off guard a bit, but, to his credit, he responded, "Sir, this is Disney World. *Everyone* is 'with a child'." Some people just don't get that there are other people in the world.

    Re: Disney Pet Peeves

    The line for the bus is never a pleasant experience at the end of the night. People get way too impatient and think they are more important than everyone else. One night a family got on the bus before everyone because they had a member in a wheel chair and the family that cut in front of me and my girlfriend to join their party started going ape sh** because of it. Security ended up being called on the husband and they were waiting for him at the hotel. It just ruined my night and made me mad the rest of the night because I can't stand people that act that way. Relax you are going to get to your hotel.

    Major kudos to the CM for having the composure and wit to come up with such a great retort

    Talking Re: Disney Pet Peeves

    Mine is when you hear someone giving another person advice or directions and they are wrong. Example: I was in the queue for the Enchanted Tiki Room (Yes, Under New Management) and heard someone saying that they had an ADR for Liberty Tree that night and were not sure where it was. The lady next to them said just as confidently as possible, it is in Epcot in the American Pavilion. WHAT??? NO IT'S NOT!!!!! I had to then of course interject and set the conversation straight. My wife was embarrassed but I guarantee they made it to their ADR!
