An increasing amount of fights and arguments at Disney are posted online. Disney reminds us all to just be kind.
Fights and Arguments
It seems like fights and arguments occurring at Disney World seem to be more common than in the past. Maybe it’s the increase of social media in our technological world or emotions at an all time during a pandemic. While we certainly don’t like reporting it, it does shed a light on the state of the theme parks and the daily happenings.
It definitely feel like all these arguments and fights are causing the magic to fade a bit at The Most Magical Place on Earth. No one likes to witness these incidents, especially when you are traveling with children.
We have reported fights and arguments on the trams, ferry boats, and in the parks. We share these incidents to make you aware that these physical fights and verbal arguments do happen in the park. We all like to think we leave the real world behind when we visit the parks, but that is not always the case.
Disney is certainly aware of what is taking place in its theme parks and resorts. As such, they are now reminding Guests to be courteous to others. On the “know before you go” page, there is a section about courtesy. The message reads:
Be the magic you want to see in the world. You must always remember to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. Those who can’t live up to this simple wish may be asked to leave Walt Disney World Resort.
There is then a link to the property rules page that shows prohibited items, prohibited activities, animal policies, and other rules. Under prohibited activities, the following rule states:
Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running except in designated areas.
Be kind to others. We all want to have a magical vacation, and that will only happen when we are courteous of other Guests.
