This brings up a good point! Why is it anyone's business how much you spend on your vacation???? Equally annoying are the pele who say, "oh, you're going to Disney again?!" Why is that any of sir business????? Way I do with my time and my money is MY business. Sorry, but this really annoys me!!!!

The Cruiser hearing me said that's okay. I explained we were his Grandparents and wished to teach him; She smiled, went on in, then we three followed.

Our Grandson whom is rather shy turned to her and asked, which floor she would like.

We adults now smiling, wished each other a great cruise!
It's so awesome that you do this!

On my last cruise, a child who was probably 7 or 8 (really, old enough to have been taught otherwise by then) rushed the elevator doors when they were barely open. I was in the elevator getting out and it was startling, so instinctively my hands flew up (palms out, as if to block something coming at you - the child was NOT touched at all) and I said "Whoa, sweetie you need to wait and let people out first" The child's parents had some curt and very un-disney-like words for me, to express their dissatisfaction of me speaking to their child. Lovely.

Wow how sad. Now if that's all you said then you are completely right. The only thing I don't like is when other people try to discipline my kids. It's happened in public setting a few times, once with a lady actually slapping my sons hands. No idea who she was. But my son is disabled and really didn't know better than what he did. She should have gotten me and NOT touched let alone tried to discipline him.

Nope, totally all I said, I promise #1 I'll probably discipline kids in my head but really never presume to know what the situation might be so rarely say anything out loud. And #2, I was traveling with a cast member so I certainly didn't want to create any kind of "situation" out of it. I was just more startled with something darting at me than anything else.

Slapping his hands? No way. That's some nerve right there.

Other than the incident with kids running up and down the hall on the deck above us (as discussed in another thread) we had no issues whatsoever with the kids on our B2B cruises. Unfortunately it's the "adults" that seem to forget or don't care about manners.

It is impossible not to notice that there is a segment of vacationers that feel that the rules of decent society do not apply to them. I see it in the parks all the time. I do say with some pride, however, that I frequently receive comments on how considerate my children are - which in a way is surprising because they are just being decent people. That really should not be the exception ... On vacation or otherwise.
Yes, we even had a "What ?" moment in the MK with a "mother" arguing loudly with a CM in front of other families and children ... However the aforementioned incidents are more the exception than the rule thank God and we did not let it ruin our enjoyment of our wonderful Disney experience. Due to my wife's health, we rented a scooter for our stay at WDW and Universal (when we weren't cruising - lol) and encountered so many considerate, polite and thoughtful families as my wife scootered throughout the Parks or on the various transportation modes such as the monorail and boats. We are SO excited to return to the Fantasy this coming May - can hardly wait ... can't imagine waiting till December 2014

How about this "What ?" moment ... while exiting the MK after several hrs of trick & treating at the MNSSHP (yes just us two adults ), we stopped off at a candy station outside the exit with a near empty bag we had ... the CM filled it overflowing with PEEPS ... in the days after, it got to the point that anytime I offered my wife one, she would reply ... "No, not ONE peep out of you."

Yeah! It broke my sons heart and mine even more. He has very bad anxiety around new people so when this lady did it in the nursery at church it terrified him. Now he won't go back and won't let me leave his side!!!

Wow ... I hope your son is improving ... has he been on a Disney Cruise before ... I am sure he will have lots of positive interactions there and will gain back confidence around people ...
