People using iPads to take photos... I just think it looks so stupid holding that big thing to take photos.

Flash photos on dark rides.

People that just STOP in the middle of the walk way.

People that dilly dally in lines. I don't want them up the person in front of theirs butt but at least keep up and don't have room for 20 people in front of you.

Your last one bothers me too, but I haven't decided if it is logical. As long as they aren't missing loading it really doesn't matter!

Mine is small children in the hot tub when it's already at the posted capacity.

This happened to us. The hot tub at POFQ has a posted capacity of nine. We got in it and there were exactly nine of us in it. Well then this family group of 4 adults and 6 kids that looked like they were 10 and under crowded their way in. I suspect they did it on purpose to get the rest of us to leave, and it worked. Once the kids started splashing around the rest of us got out. This was at 10:30 pm.

The worst part is they all had magic bands, well, POFQ wasn't testing magic bands at the time (early September) so they couldn't have been guests there. Now, POR was, so I realize they probably came from there, but sheesh, what's wrong with the hot tubs in POR that you have to crowd us out of ours!

Now in the grocery store, I count it as a rule of etiquette to put your cart on whichever side of the aisle you are looking at the shelves of if you're going to be there for a few moments. Please don't put your cart on one side of the aisle and yourself on the other side, thus blocking the whole aisle. And don't leave your cart in the middle of the aisle while you traipse up and down the row looking for something. Stay to one side or the other so that others can get by. And when approaching another person with a cart who is walking towards you, I say follow the typical "walk to the right" rule and both of you should stick to your right.

Okay. Grocery store rant over .
the mariner rule is : port to port. if you are facing the bow (front of the ship/boat) the port is on your left. (remember this by port and left are each 4 letters. righta and starboard are each MORE than 4 letters)

on waterways, it is always port to port.
(and the red light is on the port side, the green light on the starboard side. remember this by remembering that port wine is red)

see this way if you see lights, maybe a boat, and you see a green light on the left and a red light on the right, you now the boat is coming TOWARDS you.

international waters, you always pass port to port.

-People who take photos on rides, flash or no flash (but I only yell at the people who use flash, non-flash photos is more my own pet peeve)

-Parents who yell at their children "I spent xxxx amount of money to go to Disney and you're going to smile and like it!"

-When someone doesn't go up on Dumbo, just stays at the bottom. I know this is more my own weird little thing, but you know the ride goes up, GO UP. I don't know why that has always bothered me so much. It's a silly thing I know, but it just irks me.

-When people scream on Maelstrom. Come on people, it's Maelstrom.

-When people don't dress appropriately

-Large groups of chanting people. Why must they chant? I don't get it.

-Children with glowsticks on dark rides.

alright hold on... I'm going to try to convey a point, inline with the cultural rhetoric of the previous poster I am quoting. In doing so (looking at my current infraction point balance) I'm probably risking a suspension of some sort.

That said, I think the subject and the comparison (both brought up by other people) are relevant and worthy of a response. Nothing I am about to write should be taken as an insult or devaluation of any cultural group or any individual person.

That there are norms and practices of one culture that are offensive to those in other cultures is not in any way a new idea, and there is not nor should there be a rule that we all must enjoy the habits of other people and other groups (foreign or domestic). So I will tread into this as easily as I can. Please accept that the following will likely be heavily nuanced and if a plurality of interpretation does present itself to you, please do me the favor of choosing the least offensive of the group; I promise you now that is the meaning I intend.

... okay ... My movie theater pet peeve is Indians loudly talking and singing through the movie. Why do I say Indians? Because where I lived in NYC it was predominantly Indians who frequented and conducted themselves loudly through the movie. This behavior is a culturally normal one for many Indians and I hate it.

I am told that african americans are more likely than most to talk loudly throughout a film. I remember as a youth, occasionally seeing movies at a theater in a more diverse city than I lived and that there was a lot more chatter from the predominantly black audience. But sharing a cinema with outspoken black patrons hasn't been so reliably my experience as my particular gripe about watching a movie among indians. If it were then my answer might include that group.

Would I hate it if a group of chubby white people (like myself) installed themselves behind me in a theater and sang and chanted throughout the movie? Yes I would, but this has not happened often enough to become a pet-peeve for me. A pet peeve, as I think of them, is something that rises to a special place of annoyance. For me this particular taboo, speaking during a film, is embodied through my experience as attached to this particular cultural conflict.

When I say, "Indians chanting and singing through Iron Man is a pet peeve." I'm speaking inclusively, I'm including this particular group specifically because this group fits particularly into my experience. I'm not saying that only Indians talk through movies, nor do I suggest that other cultural groups that do speak during movies don't bother me. But if the question is to name a movie theater pet-peeve, well this is one of mine.

Back to WDW...
Are you more likely to encounter extensive speaking throughout an English dialogue heavy show from English speaking guests or non-english speaking guests?

It would be fair to say that guests or groups containing guests without adequate English speaking skills would be more likely to speak during such a show. Someone might then, fairly, come to associate this behavior with non-english speaking guests (or groups of guests that include them).
sheesh interesting double speak. a lot of red herrings, and blah blah...

This is my gripe with the OP in a nutshell, she/he (?) doesn't link her complaint to the trait that causes it (lack of english skills) but assumes that those without the english skills to get through something like CoP without conversing themselves must be 'foreign' guests. The reality is that inability to speak english fluently exists in many who are US nationals, as well as long term residents.

It is also my experience that most people in this country have a hard time identifying the nationality of another human being based on how that person talks. Someone speaking something that sounds 'Spanish-ey' might be a foreigner or he might be a second generation Texan. I still can't tell the difference between a s. African and a New Zealander. So I am leery whenever someone attributes something as important as nationality based on hearing the person in a dark theater.
I admit , the OP did not take into account the inevitable attack on the politically incorrctness of th e word "foreigners", or the assumption that someone not speaking english would be a visitor from another country.
I will re wrod it:
One of my pet peeves is people... no matter where their country of origion or "mother tongue" (haven't checked my internet dictionary lately.. is that still okay to say?
who obviously don't understand the language of the narration of the show. so speak through it, either because they are bored and can't understand it, or one person understands it and is translating it to the others, thereby disturbing everyone around them.

whle ANYONE, of ANY country, or in ANYlanguage who talks loudly in a show is annoying, I have noticed that it happens MUCH more predominantly amongst those who seem to not speak english. (wherever theyactually live)

and ,since I hapen to know a little spanish, it has been myexpereince that OFTEN it is just people who are bored cause they can't understand the narrator (gathered from my garnishment of their conversation) OR one person is trnaslating for the others. THEREBY ruining it for those around them.

the cook where I work took his family to WDW last year. I suggested to him to get the translator for his wife (who does not speak ANY english.. they have been in the usa for 18 years). on return I asked how that helped. his response.. "no, I just told her what they were saying through the whole thing."

he showed me wonderful photos and videos of the parade. I said "wow! how long did you stake out those spots?" he siad, we just walkd up by the ropes before it started." me" didn't they ask hyou to move?" him" yeah, some guys came up and tried to tell us to go away, but we just pretended we didnt' speak english"

ergo... if I am at any type of show in, say, france,or italy and the narrative is in french.or italian and i don't speak french,or italian I would either seek out if they had audio translators, or sit and enjoy the music and the visual..

I would NOT EVER!!! talk in english through the entire show. either because we were bored or because I could understand french and translate to the rest of my family.

have NONE of you been to the Lyric Opera in Chicago? you do NOT hear people throughout the auditorium chattering;translating to english!!!

I was at a local theater were they show broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera on a movie screen. Over the summer, they have encore performances of the previous season. I went to go see 'La Traviata', and there was this older lady sitting behind me translating the lyrics for her friend. I totally turned around and gave her 'the look'. Thankfully she got it. If not I was ready to let her know that there are sub-titles on the screen!!!!!

That is awful, awful opera etiquette! There are sub/super-titles for a reason! Even without them, people have enjoyed opera in a language they do not understand for centuries. Maybe this person would prefer musical theater...

When I was in Disneyland in June, a girl behind me on a school trip decided that she needed to scream her blood curdling scream every five seconds during the fireworks. I'm not normally one to tell people to stop, but I couldn't take it any more. It wasn't that she was scared because she was smiling and laughing the whole time that she wasn't screaming.

Adults that stand in front of kids at a parade. I try to stake my claim early because I like photographing the parades. That being said, I always make sure that the kids (especially the younger ones) have the spot on the curb (as long as it's okay with their parents). Even my grandma who takes up a lot of space on the curb with her ECV will make sure that kids get the front row seat. Disney World is great for adults, but these kids are only kids once.

People who disrespect cast members who are just doing their job.

People who complain on the Dis about every thing they can think of about Disney, then turn around and go back as soon as they can. If there's that many things that you see 'wrong', why do you even want to be there? They won't ever be 'perfect'.

The dress code of some - or 'lack' thereof.

Fanatics are often the biggest critics. I've always wondered that about the people who hated everything about those most recent three Star Wars movies, but who were also the first ones in line to see the opening-day midnight showings or to buy the DVDs.
