But if you bothered to read those 200-page threads, you'd see that each of them has anywhere from 1 to 20 pages at the beginning strictly to inform people about EVERY INCH of that particular resort. The rest of those threads are discussions about the resort. But to dismiss them entirely is really a mistake for a newbie. And if you bothered to actually read them, they would probably answer about 75 percent of your resort questions.

The one I hate the most is the thread that starts "I'm just in tears" over this or that. I'm in tears that I can't get this reservation, or "I'm in tears because they screwed up my reservation. I just want to reach through the screen and smack them. LOL You know who you are!

Another pet peeve is the ones asking for the best room. It will say "I've never stayed at the Poly so what room should i ask for? What is the BEST room there?" Drives me crazy and the best room is the room you DEEM best from experience. Then 10k other posts will tell this poster 10k different rooms. Hello! Go stay at the resort and decide what you would think is a good room.

I hate when someone posts one bad review out of the hundreds of glowing ones, and then someone responds, "Oh no! Canceling my reservation now!"

Really? Based on one random review?

I've read a few like this. I just want to scream. The first time I read someone complain about having to walk to the end of a hallway, I had to go back and reread it several times to be sure I was understanding correctly. How do these people survive everyday life?

The thread title that makes me gag every time is, "Talk to me about ..."
Yeah, you're cool.

I dislike people who refer to an entire resort as "Taco Bell" themed because they can't understand the difference between Mayan themed and Mexican fast food restaurant chain.

Oh and they do this multiple times, whenever someone asks a question about the resort.

I stand by my assertion that the Coronado Springs resort reminds me of Taco Bell which uses a similar architecture, color scheme, and art style. People unfamiliar with the resort are looking for opinions and impressions about if and I am glad to share mine. Let's keep this "pet peeves" list general and not personal, it's just light hearted fun after all!

One of mine would be "Has anybody ever stayed at .......?" or even better "Anybody at.....right now?" Every single time I'm tempted to reply "No- the place is deserted. Nobody ever goes there."

But my biggest pet peeves on this board are a tie between the "Is ....... worth it?" and the "Sell me on/ convince me to stay at .........". For heaven's sake people- read the info available, look at photos, ask some SPECIFIC questions, and then make up your own mind. Don't expect total strangers to make it up for you.

This thread is hilarious - I love it!

My biggest pet peeve is the personal attacks. Completely unnecessary and annoying to wade through when I'm hunting for useful information.

Most annoying IMO are the "is it crowded" posts

Disney will never be exclusive to your family only unless you rent the park for the day.
Just expect the unexpected and deal with it

Great thread! I've got several...


1. People who rip other people's posts simply because they disagree with their opinion. Can't we all just get along?

2. People who feel like Disney owes them something because something went awry on their vacation. People, Disney will not comp you a free room at the Grand Floridian simply beacuse your cheeseburger at Pecos Bill's was cooked well instead of medium!

3. People who look for ways to get free upgrades. A free upgrade on your room is a nice SURPRISE, not an expectation! And if you're going to ask for an upgrade, be prepared to pay for it!


I could go on......

Is it worth it...

My pet peeve is the various "Is it worth it to..." questions. Without knowing the financial situation of the poster and how much of a price difference there is I don't know how to judge if something is "worth it" to anybody else.

The only ones that really annoy me are the "how to get a free upgrade" threads and the "everything didn't go perfectly, how can I get Disney to give me something for free". So sick of the "entitled" personalities.

I paid a lot of money for this vacation....

Apparently there are people who believe that just because they "paid a lot of money for this vacation" (like others didn't) they should get special treatment.
