You are so right with that one! People ask for opinions all of the time, and then get mad when they don't like what they hear. Then they accuse the poster who responded of being mean. The first rule of posting a question on a message board should be don't ask if you can't handle honest answers.

I love the food photos thread but it is annoying when people respond by copying the same picture over and over. Please stop it.

The wars that go on here between deluxe resort people and value resort people. I find those to be rather silly. Comments I have read like "you should be happy just to be going to Disney" or my favorite "I would sleep in a cardboard box just to be at Disney" Really?

Someone offering information that is SEVERELY outdated. Like 5 years ago outdated. Sometimes you just don't have to comment.

Other than that, my pet peeves are all over at the budget board...

Yes, a thousand times yes! Or when they quote an entire long post when they're only commenting on one small part of it.

I also get annoyed when people revive threads that haven't been posted to in months, sometimes even years. Sometimes I think people think that they aren't allowed to start their own threads and instead have to add on to existing threads, even if they're old ones.

Yeah, I have to admit that cutesy baby-talk names like this drive me crazy. Especially brekkie.

I'd add Cindy's (previously mentioned), vacay, kiddos, appies, or "the hubster."

"To start our vacay, I'm taking kiddos and the hubster to Cindy's for brekkie."

But I'm still trying for a ressie. And we are going Chrissie (figure that one out).

It bothers me when people say they will never go back to a certain resort because the room had wallpaper peeling, scuff marks on the furniture, stains on the carpet, a light bulb burned out, a broken drawer, a leaking faucet, mildew around the tub tile, etc. They think the hotel room should be alsolutely perfect like they are the first guest to ever stay there? THOUSANDS of people have stayed in that room and it is amazing that Disney keeps them looking as good as they do And it certainly wouldn't ruin my vacation or keep me from returning to a certain resort.

I dislike when someone will post a negative about their current resort experience like "My room was not ready on time and our room had a funny smell" and the someone says "HEY DON'T LET IT RUIN YOUR VACATION BRO CHILL OUT"

As if pointing out any negative means you are obsessed with the issue to the point of having your vacation ruined.

Another pet peeve: people who get seriously aggravated that their room wasn't ready exactly at whatever the published check-in time is. That's when check-in starts, not the exact moment at which each party arriving at that property that day will automagically have immediate access to their room.

It's even worse when the post is something like, "We always stay at ____, we love it, we go five times a year for the last xx years, but this last trip was horrible and we're NEVER going back. We've always been able to get into our room when we arrive no matter how early it is, but not this time. Our room wasn't ready until 4:20!!!!! Check-in is 4 PM! How DARE they make us wait????"

Even "kiddos"? I wonder if that's a regional thing. We say kiddos all the time in conversation even, not as a cutesy term, but just as a synonym for kids/children. It never occurred to me that it might be weird...

I also have to agree with the poster who stated the nastiness on the boards was their pet peeve. I have been around the DIS a long time, even before the 1999 server crash, and it seems to have gotten so much worse in the last 5 years or so. Or maybe I have just gotten more sensitive?
This!! While there is a Welcome to the DISBoards page and stickies giving the info pretty darn clearly on frequent topics and questions, there are many that choose to just make the thread anyways! No one's perfect, and they just want to get the answer to their question. Fine.
Once there is one or two comments stating the rules for these hot topics, we don't need to reiterate for 3 pages the rules and how some have bended the rules, the and the 'how dare you break the rules' and 'so what if I do?' back and forth until the thread is inevitably closed. Answer the question ONCE, refer them to the sticky, and be done with it.

One of my biggest dis pet peeves is able bodied people who think they can tell just by looking at someone if they need an electric scooter or wheelchair. So ignorant and judgemental. I don't use one and hope never to and I thank God that I am able to walk. Why would anyone who is blessed to be healthy enough to walk for extended periods of time get so worked up about people in ecv's?

On a lighter note refillable mug wars is so tired. People are going to do what they are going to do. I for one could care less what people do with their old mugs.

My sister and I were on the phone discussing our upcoming Disney trip. She was on speaker since I was wiping the kitchen countertops down

It went something like this:

Sister: so three of you are doing the darkside for 2 days before Disney?
Me: Yup! Gonna visit WWOHP again.
Sister:So what are the plans for our first Disney day?
Me: POR at 6:30am, AK at 8
Me So after AK we will go back to POR and get our room
Sister Then what, do we have an ADR?
Me. Yes at POR or we can cancel the ADR and do QS at DTD
Sister sounds good
Me: Unless we nab some tics for the Dessert Party so in that case we will go to MK afte RaR at POR


My husband was and semi-mad at the same time. He asked me to discuss any future plans in English so that he could at least understand it.

The funny thing is that my sister is not, nor never will be, a member here or on any other message board. She picked up the Dis-slang from me when we were in the early stages of planning..and we do it because it is funny.
