Do not be one of those people who end up annoying everyone else in the park when you visit Disneyland! Every time I go I see the same behaviours from guests that make me want to scream sometimes! Keep these in mind when you next go so that you don't become one of those people. At the same time, those who have been a few times can appreciate exactly what I'm talking about.
- THE ENTITLED STROLLER - You're walking along in a congested area and are, unfortunately, not moving very fast. A stroller comes up behind you and starts pushing you in the ankles to urge you forward even though you cannot move anymore than you already have. Instead of bruising ankles, keep in mind how close you are to those in front of you and realise when they just can't move anymore.
- THE HALTER - You're walking behind someone at a good pace when they suddenly stop right in front of you to talk to the person next to them and it's everything you can do to avoid a collision. Be aware of your surroundings before you stop altogether! Step off to the side first or quickly check around you to ensure you're not going to be hit from behind. Or, if you still stop and the person behind you does run into you, don't get upset at them because it's as much your fault as it is theirs.
- THE MID-STREET CONFERENCE - Don't stop in the middle of the path to chat with your group! Even a small group in the wrong place can halt traffic in both directions as everyone tries to bottleneck around you. Find somewhere off the beaten path to chat so you're not in the way.
- THE CLUELESS GUEST - You come back to the FastPass Return line only to discover a huge line backing far away from the entrance. Upon closer inspection you find that there's someone at the front who doesn't understand either the height requirement, the fact that this is a FastPass line, the whole FastPass system in general or anything else like that. If you have questions about how something works, that's fine but don't hinder the experience of other guests. Ask a CM outside of the line, step out of the line so others can get by, or do as much research as you can before you go.
- THE BERLIN WALL/RED ROVER - If you have a somewhat larger group, don't walk side-by-side down the road because you surely will block traffic behind you while those coming towards you have to break the line apart. Three-across will be plenty and in certain areas you'll even want to shave that down to two-across.
- THE SALMON - Have you ever seen that one group that decides to go against the flow of heavy traffic? Don't do it. It just slows everyone else down and you will definitely not get to your destination any faster. Plus when the traffic flow is guided by CMs, they're doing it for a reason so just trust them and do as they direct.
