Foreigners. Seriously? ONLY foreigners talk during attractions? You really haven't been paying attention then. 9 times out of 10 when I have felt the need tell someone to shut the hell up it has been someone speaking perfectly fluent English. Usually with a pronounced American regional accent.

My biggest pet peeve are those guests who are simply inconsiderate. And this displays itself in multiple ways. Littering. Taking flash photos on dark rides. Talking in attractions. Trying to muscle their way in front of me at a parade. Acting like self-entitled jerks ( Kungaloosh) with CMs. Line jumpers. Ad nauseum.

The tour groups who behave badly.

The occasional rude CM.

The occasional uninformed CM (not their fault) who knows less than I do.

Crowds .

We have always traveled end of September/first of October. Always been low-crowd season, very pleasant weather and crowd conditions.

Now, with the advent of Free Dining (don't get me wrong, I appreciate and use Free Dining myself, so this complaint is a bit hypocritical) that time of year is getting perfectly horrid. Last time I visited it was an early October trip, and I could hardly move. I HATE crowds, and it was pretty much a vacation-spoiler.

I think next time I may shoot for January/early February.

Unfortunately, I don't think there are any extremely low crowd times. Our best luck has been the week right after labor day (though I haven't been during that time for two years). I have been the first week of Feb., and I still think early Sept. is the best. Though it is nice to get away from winter in Feb.!

People who scream for the sake of screaming.

For instance, HM stretching room. Many kids hate the room and are scared by it, adults screaming incessantly only makes it worse.

Just about every peeve falls under the general heading of "people who are rude", be it pushing in front of kids at parades or not saying please and thank you, general rudeness annoys me.

I'm Canadian though, polite is bred into us.

Walkway stoppers. People who just stop in the middle of the walkways.

Flash photo takers.

Ipad/cell phone screens.

Kids on dad's shoulders.

Oblivious parents.

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!!!

Sorry! DH is always yelling at me for doing that.
To add to the OP's complaint, we were on Journey into Imagination once and the man behind us spent almost the whole ride conducting business (loudly) on his cell phone. He was alone, probably at WDW for a convention, and it sounded like he was yelling at the home office. DH, who'd usually the biggest workaholic I've met, finally turned around and complained to him.

And I always laugh when people complain about spiels in both English and Spanish. Where we live, Spanish is so common that it's Option #1 when you call our local library, and English is Option #2. I've met so many people who've lived here in the US for 25 years or so, and still can't speak English-and they don't have to around here!
