I hate that too!! The CM tell them over and over again to move down and they just sit there. Teaching through example to thier kids on how to do what they want and not listen. Ignorant.

I did this exact thing at philharmagic in october! There was one family in front of us, and a whole row's worth of families behind us all. This family plopped down right in the middle. I promptly said "they asked us to move all the way down please" and kind of urged them forward with my body language (as there were a lot of people waiting to move along). Also the cm's at the other side were saying please move all the way to the end of the row, please fill in all seats. They moved along :-)

This is by far the worst thing that I have encountered the parks. And it irritates me to no end!

I have always found on most days the front few rows or the back few rows never fill up, Often times I have been the only one in a row. I wait till most people have sat down then head for one of those empty rows and then find the exact middle seat!
You may get a good show in any seat. But in any theater the best view is in the middle about a third of the way back. Oh, and If you sit in the first few rows of American Adventure, you see things you don't want to see. As in Ben and Mark, NOT shaking hands but waving there hands up and down about a foot apart.

Picture it. Sicily, 1922... Oh wait. No, wrong story. That's a TV character. Anyway. I was one of about six (total) small parties in pine to see Honey I Shrunk the Audience at Disneyland a few years ago. The CM told us to sit anywhere. I sat in the last row, about 2/3 of the way down the row. A couple with a young child came in, selected tge row in front of me and - despite every seat in that row being empty - sat directly in front of me. Not the child, one of the adults. Really?

I'm not invisible, and the man looked right at me before they sat.

I honestly don't understand what the big deal is. Yes, if it is crowded, we go 3/4 of the way down or so, but if it is not crowded, there is no need at all to go all the way across.

I spoke with Laurel Thatcher Ulrich at length many years ago at a women's writers conference in Portland, ME. She was absolutely delightful.

People are always in a hurry to get in the theater and I laugh each time because its like you will be sitting on the end stupid, but they are always the ones in the middle of the row. At Phillamar one time there was a Spanish speaking family arguing with the CM about moving down and I was like move down already!!! We were in the said row, and they were telling us to walk over them and I was motioning for them to move on down!! Ugh took them 15 minutes to finally move their butts and would not stop arguing either. Just so annoying.

They weren't listening.

We had an announcement nice in Muppetvision to leave about 8 seats empty at the end of our rows because the theater wasnt crowded, which everyone did.

The guy in the row in front of me starts YELLING at the woman next to him about not having gone all the way to the end and say that since SHE didn't, HE would. The guy was seriously whacked out about it. Then his daughter told him it was okay, not to make a fuss, they had told everyone to do it. He was STILL pissed and looking at that woman.

It was kind of funny. But it made me realize that many people, including rule followers, just don't listen to the announcements.

I do hate it when people poly down and make others climb over them, but I don't wig out and start screaming. I don't try to physically harm them.

I don't think we should lose our cool (and our minds) over theater seats.

Chill out, people.

I don't let wanna-be hall monitors bother me.
I'm with you. LOL. I always wait to go in the row till it's half full. And I'm willing to wait to sit on the top row, middle for Soarin'. If this makes me a bad person... I don't care!

I hate it when people do this. It is very rude. I will stop close to the middle if it's not crowded and I'm not bothering anyone. Otherwise I always move all the way down. It's just respectful and courteous.

I understand how if you're the last couple people in and the theater isn't full, then get up and move. But for the most part, it's never the people coming in at the end doing this. And I'm still sticking to my point that when you hear one single solitary rule being spoken over the loud speaker many multiple times and you do exactly what you're told not to do .... there's a problem.

It is not blind adherence to orders when they also explain that the theater will be full and each seat has the same view.

Honestly, they don't have time to go into minute detail explaining the why of every rule at WDW. Or should they have to explain why it is necessary to keep your hands in the ride at all times? And why you need to keep your seatbelt on? How many of us want to hear a long lecture of how missing a hand or arm will affect your life every time we board a ride?

If's it's packed, then I would move to the end of the row. When we go in January, there is hardly anyone in many attractions. We've been in Voyage of The Little Mermaid where there were about 25 people max! People sat wherever they wanted and I wouldn't expect anyone to move to the end of a row when hardly anyone was there.

Something similar has happened in the Laugh Show, Beauty and the Beast, 3D Muppets, Philharmagic. It depends on how busy the crowd is. We have even had CM's tell us, sit wherever you want.
