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.

Courtesy Reminder

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.

  1. I don’t think that can account for it all. Before the pandemic with FastPass you had to reserve dining 6 months in advance (now it’s 2 months) and FastPasses 2 months in advance (now it’s the same day, as you go). And honestly, people are seeing more issues like this now in all sorts of places besides Disney, including not only other theme parks but even shopping centers and restaurants. I think the problem is mostly as a society we spent the pandemic stewing over our issues and getting frustrated and forgetting how to interact civilly and compassionately with eachother.

  2. There’s no excuse BUT I feel like Disney could prevent some of this bad behavior. Like the drunk guy on the skyliner. They told him to leave but they didn’t actually make him leave and then he caused the skyliner to be shut down for everybody. When a bunch of people rush past others just to jump the line (I don’t mean back from restroom to rejoin their family. I mean literal in-your-face line jumping.) the cast members shrug and say there’s nothing they can do. I realize there are times CMs have made the offenders leave, but I’ve never seen it happen. And I don’t blame them, they’re probably stressed overworked underpaid employees. It’s a corporate issue. Six Flags has cameras and signs up throughout the queue that have a phone number for guests to report line jumping…and the line jumping problem there is virtually nonexistent compared to Disney.

  3. Sorry but I don’t think this article highlighted the right reasons for guests being more testy. IMO this loss of patience is directly related to changes made to the system over the part few years including eliminating Fast Passes and monetizing everything except the bathrooms. Now people are trying to maximize their ROI as never before and that leads to short tempers as other guests are perceived as getting in the way. Disney is no longer a fairly relaxed place to vacation. Everything has to be planned and scheduled, including park-hopping. DVC reservations are almost impossible to get.This all takes away from the experience guests have come to love and expect, and people are getting angry! Frankly, I hardly blame them! Hiw much of this avarice abd poor customer service on Disneys part are we, the guests, supposed tolerate?
