    ... especially since whatever line I get into, either the machine's not working or the person in front of me can't figure out how to stick the ticket in, lay your finger on the blue light and move forward at the green light! <sigh>

    Re: What is your "cringe" moment?

    The hardest I've ever cringed on Disney property was unfortunately during the Indiana Jones summer events they had two years back at Disneyland, to coincide with Kingdom of The Crystal Skull. Part of the scheduled special stuff was a show at the old Aladdin's Storytime stage in Adventureland, "The Mystery of The Stone Tiger," or something to that effect. CLIF notes version for those lucky enough to have avoided seeing this one: Indy is inexplicably betrayed by a female archeologist he'd been working with, and the two proceed to engage in hand to hand shenanigans that would make WWE Smackdown! look like Shakespeare in comparison. How bad on how many levels was this? Let me count the ways...... As a lifelong Dr. Jones fanboy, I could not believe this had gotten the green light. Apparently, enough parents (and I'd hope, fans as well) complained, and the show was then censored with unintentionally hilarious results, and finally was just mercifully scrapped altogether.

    Broke my heart to think of it like this, but seems if you want a good show Indy show, you go to Florida. If you want the ride, you go to Cali. Just the way it is.

    Re: What is your "cringe" moment?

    -The tour groups that come up in July...I will no longer visit WDW in July because they are by far the most obnoxious groups of people I have ever encountered in my life.

    - People who attempt to cut the lines.

    - People who change their kids diapers right in public on a hot and humid August Day...I'm sorry, but there are plenty of restrooms for that.

    - Long lines for entry into the park.

    - CHECKING OUT

    Then why not find a "magical" thread.

    Apparently you've never had the joy of encountering one of these...

    They come in packs of about 50-300 people, all from different countries...and they all wear the same color shirts and walk like a stampede through the crowd following one guy up front with a flag, directing them. On several occasions, I saw the guy with the flag cut the entire line, once on PoTC, another on Splash Mountain, and the last time on Grand Prix Raceway...then the entire pack of people follow them!!!!

    The CMs can't do anything about it because these people claim not to speak any English unless they are threatening expulsion from the park, so they just let it go. CMs have told us that they sleep in hallways at the hotels and have sometimes double the amount of people sleeping in rooms. However, they clearly have money because they aren't exactly staying at All-Star. We were also told that the amount of litter in the park is also rediculous during the time they are there.

    So before you go judging us, it has nothing to do with their ethnicity, or the fact that they come up in groups, its their behavior while they are in our country, stomping all over our magical experience.

    You came into this thread on post 129 and expect the tone to change so it suits your sensibilities? What a sense of entitlement you seem to have.
