Biggest resort pet peeve for me is seeing guests in the food court barefoot- EWW!! I may be the only one who thinks this is gross, but why on earth would anyone walk into a restaurant (that IS what it is,right?) in their barefeet? Its so skeevy

DIS action? Or Walt Disney World Cast Member action? A call to the "front desk" would have actually gone to a Call Center where the CMs see the source of the call and answer as if they're at your resort. By the time the message got back to the resort, then the Supervisor, then the leaf-blowing CM - at the very least she'd have moved on to another area if not be finished.

Journey into Imagination? I qualified my statement with "I'd think". The grounds crew having other jobs to do later in the day is more reasonable than moving up all one's assignments to leave early to visit an ill parent. I do know those CMs start early. They're out washing down the walkways of the Value and Moderate resorts really early - about 6:30 or 7:00.

My personal pet peeve while at WDW is people that allow their kids to make excessive amounts of noise outside of the rooms. We have had the 'pleasure' of listening to screaming children running outside of our room at very late and very early hours. We have had room neighbours that allowed the kids to jump on beds, bounce toys against the walls and my all time favourite was the time the parents started screaming at the kids at 6am in the room beside us and slamming the dresser drawers. LOL...that particular time my DH got up to use the washroom and as he was passing the door that connected the two rooms he tripped and banged full on into the door. The neighbours shut up instantly. What truely made it funny was that he did not intentionally hit the door but they must have thought he did.
I understand people wanting to let their hair down because it vacation, but our family's rules for consideration and politeness do not get relaxed just because we're wearing playclothes. If anything, I remind my children to be more on their best behavior because it helps everyone have a good time.

I'm sure that the guests in the rooms around you really appreciated the yelling. If I'd been your next door neighbour you most likely would have been hearing a "New York echo". (apologies to Robin Williams)

Totally agree!!!!!

We have experienced MUCH more noise coming from the interior hallways in Deluxes then we have ever experienced with noise coming from outside at a Moderate.

The interior hallways have kids AND adults talking loud, shouting, bouncing off the walls, slamming doors, running, playing catch, etc etc.

That was my first thought. I'd be more annoyed with the person in the next room yelling than I would with an employee using a leaf blower.

How about the person in the next room using a leaf blower?

I'm having visions of Bill Murray cleaning up his place with a leaf blower in Caddyshack.

That is rude. Way too early. They could have used a rake.

I am surprised they even use leaf blowers on Disney property around guests as they are VERY noisy and have the definite risk of projecting debris. I was hit in the face hard with a stone through my open car window by a city crew using one and I was 30 feet away from the blower. Another few inches and it would have hit my eye.

I probably would not have done anything at the moment, but would have complained to the front desk later that day. If they don't get complaints, they aren't going to change.

I have on numerous occasions stepped into the hallway and said something to folks like this.
Or they could have piss poor cellphone reception in the room,like I did at AoA. I had to step outside the room to make a phone call. I don't shout into the phone though.

That was my pet peeve about the resort,lol. Other than that, I like it just fine.

The leaf blowing wouldn't have bothered me, I sleep like a rock at WDW and background sounds tend not to bother me anyway.

And they could hire 20 more CMs for each resort to do the raking that 1 CM could accomplish using a leaf blower. And then they would jack up the room rates even more.
