What's Your Disneyworld Pet Peeve?

You know we all have at least one, or more. So, what's yours?

Mine is foreign people (people from other countries, nationalities, whatever is the politically correct way of saying it ) not shutting up during attractions that you need to be listening to. Carousel of Progress has always been my favorite Disney attraction, and this time I took my adult DD with me who had never been to Disney before so it was her first time to experience this attraction.

We had a family (4 adults/3 children) speaking Spanish the entire time directly behind us. They were not quiet about it either. Everyone else was being quiet, except for a child now and then but that is to be expected.

Now, I don't know if they could not speak English, but please...if you don't understand the English language and you still go into an attraction where people would want to be listening to it, please for the love of all that's holy...shut up!!!

Oh for the love of Pete. We get visitors for other countries - heaven forbid. And they might need to know the safety regulations - oh the horror.
"That's right, you fell out of the ride because you didn't realize how to keep yourself safe. WELL TOO BAD FOR YOU! If you had just learned the entirety of the English language before your vacation, this wouldn't have happened, now would it... quit whining, it's just an arm, you have another."

Ok, Pet Peeves.

1. The HUGENESS of the resorts. If you should happen to get a room out in the north 40 somewhere it will take you 45 minutes to hike to breakfast or the bus stop. I love the theming but for how much it costs, they ought to drive around with those little luggage carts giving rides to the food court.
2. Parents who can be heard in the parks yelling at and berating their exhausted, sun-burned little kids... "I don't care if your feet hurt! I paid 10,000 for this vacation, and you WILL HAVE FUN!"
3. Mandatory gratuity. How much I tip is my business.
4. When I have carefully picked out my spot for parade/fireworks viewing and held it down for an hour beforehand, and then someone shows up 5 minutes before and stands directly in front of me.
5. At park closing time, waiting for a bus to YOUR resort, only to have buses for every other resort on property show up before yours. By that time the line is so long 3 buses are required.

I am sure there are more...
But I still love it.

When you're waiting for a parade to start and ding dongs sitting near you start throwing popcorn to feed the birds. And children that swing on line ropes.

From guests? People who talk during shows/fireworks, especially if they are talking on their cell phones. And also humongous strollers bug the heck out of me.

From Disney? The bus service. It's gotten awful, and I didn't ride a single bus on our September trip because of it. We drove, walked, or took the monorail. The rental car is worth every penny, and I never would have said that ten years ago.

There's no good excuse I can think of for Disney to not have improved the bus service and how buses are called out to the parks or resorts. We had seven Animal Kingdom buses and several DTD/TL buses come to our resort bus stop one day in June before a single Magic Kingdom bus ever came. Part of the billion they just spent on Fastpass+ etc. can surely go to fix the bus call-out issues.

My biggest pet peeve is people who do not watch their kids.....and could care less when their kids misbehave and disrupt others

If they were blonde Americans talking who she have said " blonde people not shutting up during attractions that you need to be listening to."?

I somehow doubt it
I'm thinking that the point of the people disprupting the show by talking in a language different than english is thus:

it happens more often with a foreign language because those who don't understand English are more often bored, so speak amongst themselves.

it is just as annoying in any language, but I'm thinking it happens more often with those who don't understand the narrative, so , they speak amongst themselves. or.. often one is translating.

Butting in line. the one satisfaction was years ago when I was young and in shape. I was in line and a kid comes out of nowhere and butts in front of me. I ask him what he thinks he is doing. He says his father told him to get in front of me. I tell him to tell his father he can butt in anywhere behind me. His father comes over and says who do you think you are, I'm from New York City (???). I said that's nice I'm from Chicago. He walked away.

The price for Disney and all the parks is getting at a point that most familys will have to take fewer trips. Like sports, family of 4 over $200.00 for A game.
