I'm inclined to not believe either as the berries don't serve much purpose other than changing the flavors of foods and that's only for a short while.

On another note, whenever I read 'lap bar' I think of a "lap bar" which is very un-Disney like. I'm sorry.

I can't imagine anything you could easily quickly reach least lifting your behind off the seat and leaning. Lap bar would prevent that. As for the un Disney version of this term - I've never heard it?

FWIW - taking something that isn't supposed to be taken is stealing in my book no matter the value - but far more of an annoyance to me would be trying to explain to a five year old who desperately wants to touch the sand and attempt to grab some low hanging fruits - why I keep telling her it is against the rules but that adult is doing it.

I sincerely hope some of you are correct and this was just a joke.

I am not buying it. I am wondering if the OP was just trying to create a thread with people arguing about stealing.

So you may want to rethink touching the sand.
They also don't want any contaminants or bugs we may have on us to get into the sand since that is what the plants are in. It's all extremely controlled in there.

Please don't touch the sand!!

Thats one of the challenges of being a parent. When you have a situation of an adult breaking rules in front of your child, your child (unfortunately) learns that even some adults are "naughty". However, just because an adult is doing it, doesn't mean your rules suddenly are meaningless. It stays the same regardless of the offenders age - the rules of that attraction are not to put your hands outside the boat and not to take anything. My daughter has seen adults break rules .... she hasn't suddenly thought 'oh, its ok to do it' .... I didn't raise her to assume that because an adult is doing it its ok, thats how children find themselves in situations. Instead she will question as to why that adult is doing 'x' when its wrong and I will explain to her that even some adults don't follow the rules.

Yeah so its not ideal when an adult does something like this in front of your child but thats life and our children learn that not everything is black and white.

That's what tends to happen with these threads. OP disappears after he or she doesn't what to hear all the hate from DISers who are worried about what there kids will think when they see a person picking a berry off a tree on a ride. I've been a parent for 16 years and I have taught my kids at home that just because they see someone else do it (regardless of it being a child or adult), doesn't mean they can do it. No, I'm not a perfect parent, but I also believe that other's actions should have no influence my or my children's character.

In all honesty, though, taking a berry is such a trivial matter. I would not put it in the same category as stealing a snow globe or something.

To be frank, guys, no one wants to be called a troll (some might now have said the word, but it was sure implied). One thing I've learned is the best way to teach your kids is through example, so I try to set one even when they're not watching/reading, then again, I'm not a perfect parent so what do I know?

The OP just wanted to rile up the crowd. I'm sure his feelings were not so hurt that he couldn't bear to come back to face more of it.

The OP appears to be more of a hit and run poster anyway based on posting history.

Heh, we live here and my son seems to get the same lecture every weekend when we go to Disney. "No, son you are not allowed to do that. Yes, I realise the grown ups are doing it. But that's because people are (insert a word I can't say on the Dis)."

My poor kid is gonna be so jaded. Life isn't fair, people are rude, and he understands that already.



Incidently, everytime we ride Living With the Land (one of our favorites) the poor CMs have to come on the microphone and tell people to keep their hands inside the boat. People are stupid to think no one is watching them.

I went on the Behind The Seeds tour, we got to touch quite a few things. I can't remember if we could touch sand or not. You might try that.

I did see a 20,000 leagues submarine parked in the back lot though, that was cool.

Definitely not allowed to touch the sand. I did this tour and the Guide watched everyone like a hawk.

One family gave up and left because their young child kept wanting to touch the sand and it wasn't allowed.

The sand is specially sterilized. It's why the employees who work in there need to wear booties over their shoes.
If the sand gets touched, it all has to be replaced according to that Guide which would mean a shut down of Living with the Land until it's done.

Doesn't matter. The WDW vacation police will now commence to tell the OP what a horrible human being they are. Par for the course here.
