Coca-Cola has the rights to bottle/can Dr. Pepper outside of the US. Not sure about fountain products.
I know this is from Wikipedia, but I'm pretty sure that both Pepsi and Coke distribute Dr. pepper in different parts of the country.

"In the United States, Dr Pepper Snapple Group does not have a complete network of bottlers and distributors, so the drink is sometimes bottled under contract by Coca-Cola or Pepsi bottlers. Prior to the initial Cadbury Schweppes investment-turned-buyout, 30% of Dr Pepper/Seven Up products were produced and distributed by Pepsi bottlers, and another 30% by Coca-Cola bottlers. The remaining 40% were produced and distributed by independent bottlers (mainly consisting of Dr Pepper/Seven Up premerger regional bottlers) and the Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group. Currently, the majority of Pepsi and Coke bottlers bottling Dr Pepper are owned by PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company after their buyouts of their major bottlers.
Presently, Dr Pepper Snapple relies on its own bottling group to bottle and distribute its products in more than 30 states. Coca-Cola and Pepsi have essentially stopped bottling and distributing CSAB products in favor of in-house alternatives, although regional exceptions can be found.[28]"

My pet peeve is people who cut in line on buses, push and shove to get on in front of others.

Yes, I know there are a LOT of Spanish-speaking visitors. So what. There are many visitors that speak Japanese, Russian, and French. The rides don't translate in those languages.
Maybe there are more Spanish speaking visitors than any other and that's why they do it?

WDW is a business. If they decided to include Spanish to their rides is because it makes good business sense. It obviously works for them.

Let me try to explain this a bit for you. The person wasn't complaining about people screaming out of fear, even if the ride wasn't all that scary. The person was complaining about people (usually teenagers, and more especially teenage girls) who go on the ride, knowing exactly what the ride is about, but still screaming at the top of their lungs through the whole ride, not from fear but just because they feel like it. It is very annoying to those around them.

As for teaching children new words- I really hope you don't mean what I think you mean.

The walkways at Animal Kingdom. Who designed that? We're they intentionally trying to force us to be herded like a bunch of animals down those narrow pathways? And for the love of all, people that stop on a dime in the middle of the walkway to look at their map are my biggest pet peeve. It really ruins my day to nose plant myself in the small of someone's back. Move to the side people!

Lately, my biggest peeve has been not being allowed to take part in FP+ since we're staying offsite. Hopefully that is just a temporary peeve though.

Otherwise, I dislike people who push through crowds (like they're getting anywhere faster by doing that) and parents who make no attempt to control out-of-control kids.

We have been to Disney once and I loved all moments except having to carry a two year Old on the bus and trying to keep balanced. Looking at people who could hold one of there kids on there knees to make more room for others. But I guess I could have waited for the next one.

I was the one who posted this pet peeve and yes, minnie mum, you are exactly right about what I was trying to say.

It is specifically on rides that younger kids are a bit frightened of that this drives me nuts. It took us SO long to get DS to be brave enough to try HM and then people just started screaming as loud as possible and then laughing hysterically.

I somehow doubt it
I'm thinking that the point of the people disprupting the show by talking in a language different than english is thus:

it happens more often with a foreign language because those who don't understand English are more often bored, so speak amongst themselves.

it is just as annoying in any language, but I'm thinking it happens more often with those who don't understand the narrative, so , they speak amongst themselves. or.. often one is translating.

There you go. If the Spanish speaking family behind us would have been whispering (if one was translating, as you mentioned) it wouldn't have bothered me as much but they were ALL talking out loud so it was extremely distracting.

Yes, to clarify, it bothers me when ANYONE is talking behind me in an attraction, movie theater, live play, or WHATEVER...but when they are speaking in their native language it just makes me think they probably do not understand English and I don't understand why they would even want to be there if they can't understand the narration.

And, if I were visiting another country I would have enough respect for other people to keep my mouth shut so they could listen.

Someone said we should have just moved, as CoP is never full...there were others sitting beside us, I wasn't about to get up and try to crawl over them to move. The Spanish speaking family behind us was rude. They should have had more respect for others and shut up. That's how I feel, and if I offended anyone here about my use of the word "foreigner" I apologize. I don't think the word should be offensive though, because when we visit Canada then "we" are "foreigners" as well and I'm not offended to be one.

Once again you equate Spanish speaking to equal a foreigner. This is a diverse country with people who speak all sorts of languages.

I agree. A couple of trips ago we were on hm and two sets of teenage girls literally screened all the way through. A dad hear me complaining and started berating me for complaining about kids "just having fun". Total jerky self centered family.

With every single flash of fireworks, we heard, "OH.....MY........GOD!!!!!" It was really getting on my nerves, as it was right in my ear.

Eventually, I started saying in an equally drawn out, dramatic fashion, "OH........MON........DIEU!!!! OH.......MON......DIEU!!!! OH........MON.......DIEU!!!!" DH was . She got the hint and stopped with the OMG!!!!!
Too funny! We had almost the same experience watching Holiday Wishes last time, except it was a lady behind us (with an accent that made her sound like Janice from "Friends") saying "WOW" all drawn out! Like you said it was after every flash. It was like she'd never seen fireworks before, but it made my family laugh. We have a running joke about it.

I think a lot of OP summed it up- inconsiderate and entitled people are a pet peeve in general no matter where you go. We've come to expect it, so when people are nice it just makes that extra bit of pixie dust for us. We look for reasons to make our day and don't let those other things break our day.

My 13yo DS came up and read just the title of this thread and said "People who complain about Disneyworld- come on, you're at Disneyworld!"
