What do adults screaming have to do with you teaching kids new words?

The dining plan. It has ruined dining at disney.

At counter service places when people sit at a table before they have their food , then people with trays of food are stuck wandering around.

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!!!
As a foreigner I find this rude, condescending and insulting.

Your issue is with people who talk during shows/performances do NOT make an assumption they are 'foreigners' for all you know they are tax paying American citizens.

This is exactly why we always find a table first. If you can't beat me, join me!

I am unable to have children and up until the past couple of years (when I hit forty and finally gave up trying) the sight of a woman breastfeeding (especially a full-on uncovered view) gave me a physical ache inside and was almost enough to send me into a crying jag. It was certainly enough to put me in a down mood for the rest of the day. Add in the joys of fertility hormone therapies and that increases tenfold.

As I said, there are many reasons why people don't want to see someone breastfeed, there is mine, and it's deeply personal and deeply hurtful.

I'm sorry that you feel that my wanting breastfeeding women to be a little more discrete in public is "annoying".

I would have gotten up and moved to another seat in my row.. I have never ridden COP when it was full.

lol that made for an interesting Wikipedia adventure! looks like it's now part of the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group

I would definitely love some other diet soda choices rather than cola- ginger ale, root beer, grape... anything other than Coke lol

I'm going to go with the Dining plan. Back in the hey day we had some fabulous meals at Disney. We actually looked forward to the fine dining. We planned some of our vacations totally around the restaurant meals. Now I'm happy to get edible and I'm usually happier with the chicken and hamburger counter service meals than what comes out of the kitchens of some of those places with table clothes. I've been served plates from places like Coral Reef that Denny's would be ashamed to send out.

Add in the Disney transportation system. I actually paid for a cab a couple of times last trip because I just could not STAND the thought of a Disney bus. I don't say that lightly either, I can be a real Cheapskate.

I think the key is to respect one another and appreciate what we have .
I wish you all the best! My friend is battling breast cancer, and she is such an inspiration to me.

I love WDW, but I am not sure if I will like FP+. I have read many of the threads on here and I just don't know.

Okay, it seems everyone is bothered by my own personal pet peeve of rides speaking in both English in Spanish. I'm allowed my own opinion by the way, and yes, it bothers me!

Yes, I know there are a LOT of Spanish-speaking visitors. So what. There are many visitors that speak Japanese, Russian, and French. The rides don't translate in those languages.

If I go to another country, no, I do not expect anyone to speak English to me (or have signs in English). If I decide to go to another country, it is my understanding that I'm in their country and should learn the language. I don't care if people from other countries visit Disney World or anywhere else in the US, my issue isn't with the people that may or may not speak English.

Just my opinion. Everyone has one.

In the US, Dr. Pepper has an exclusive bottling deal with Pepsi, so you'll often see them with as part of the same promotions and sales as Pepsi products. For fountain distribution, there's non-exclusive deals with Coke and Pepsi. So that's why McDonald's (exclusively Coke products for years) now serves Dr. Pepper.

Coca-Cola has the rights to bottle/can Dr. Pepper outside of the US. Not sure about fountain products.

So you think that when people go to a different country, they should learn the language first? Really?

My take on the use of both English and Spanish directions on attractions is that WDW uses the 2 languages that are most used by visitors. The company wants the majority of visitors to be able to understand how to get around, rules in attractions, directions to attractions, etc. it is a courtesy and makes peoples trips easier and more enjoyable.
