I mean NO disrespect to anyone who posted here, but here is something to consider. Walt Disney World is the busiest vacation destination in the World. Part of what makes WDW so special is sharing moments with family, friends, and complete strangers. Walt didn't set out to make a park only for his family. He created it for everyone to enjoy, or not enjoy! There will be annoyances anywhere you go, but I offer this: if you don't like dealing with the general public, don't go!
    I see what you are saying... i really do... but understand that my issue is some things that i see... like the kids on the leashes... and kids getting yelled at... it is all about being in WDW, but it is still something that makes me "cringe"...


    i do just laugh about the lines at the shops... it doesnt really make me "cringe"... it is frustrating, but it does make me think about whether i need what i am buying...

    Seeing snakes while in line at the waterparks-

    You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.

    I saw a decomposing rat at Blizzard Beach. It was lying against a curb behind a snack bar. A CM with a dust pan took it away. I'd have rather seen a live snake.

    I agree about the kids being yelled at and being on leashes! My point wasn't to direct my comment at anyone in particular, and I am sorry if it seemed that way! The thread seemed to be getting a little too picky...lol...

    Pulling into the parking lot of my resort after checking in and not being able to find any spots except for WAY down at the end. I know it's going the parks are going to be jammed.

    When people try to say all the lines for the Tower of Terror video. It's like hey, you're not Rod Serling keep it quiet. I always let them go ahead of me and then I get in whatever line they are not in.

    Perhaps if some parents parented a little more actively, the kids wouldn't be quite so nuts! I'm not blaming everyone who has kids, but jeez! The first time I went to WDW I was 3 and I knew better lol...Don't get me wrong, I love kids I taught through most of my 20s (about to hit 29 actually), it just seems like there is a lack of redirection that could have a positive effect on the children. And to echo what you have said, if I had children that behaved as some I have seen, we wouldn't be going to WDW either ;-)

    Re: What is your "cringe" moment?

    The one that really bothers me is the foreigners that push their children in front of you in a crowded place and expect for you to get out of their way to keep up with their children. It is very rude if you ask me. It happened to us at Christmas, one woman almost lost her son in the water trying to push her son through the crowd and noone moved out of the way and if it weren't for my hubby he would have gone in the water in MK.
    Love Disney. I hope to go next spring with the whole family.

    i know what you mean... im 24 and have been teaching for 3 years... it is amazing the lack of discipline some kids really have... my parents waited until i was 7... because they wanted me to remember it... not because i was a problem... but most parents these days reward kids for "normal" behavior...

    i had a kid get to my class on time today and say... "arent you proud of me... i made it to class on time..."

    my response... "no... why am i praising you for doing something your supposed to do..." alot of kids want to be rewarded for doing the right thing... even if it is not out of the ordinary...

    "did someone thank me for getting to work on time today... no..."
