    Hmm, I read a thread on here and it kinda reminded me of it. Am I the only one that gets super annoyed when your standing in like an hour long line for a ride, and pretty soon your being pushed by and hear "My group is up there" "Excuse me, my spot is being saved up there" I MEAN COME ON! WAIT LIKE THE REST OF US!! I read it on some thread about fastpasses, and do people actually leave there families, grab fastpasses, than cut in front? Is that common? Am I just weird that I think this is kinda inconsdirate? :confused3

    Yep some people will let one or two people stand in line while they are getting FP and riding rides and stuff. The thing is that the person is to rejoin the party only if they had to leave for medical emergency or potty breaks. If they cannot join the line then they should go to the greeter and explain the situation.

    Personally the best thing about being an SID,old, fat lady is that I topple easily and tend to sway my wide hips. They do not get past me. I tell them that they can go to the head of the line and talk to a CM.

    Also I strongly believe that the party should enter at the same time. I have had half a group run in front of me and others then the laggers who cannot run fast squirm up the line to their group. They do not like to hear "Your entire party should have got in line at the same time." I once had about 12 to 15 people in Jungle Cruise line push up and down stairs until I hip checked them and kept half of them behind me. It is expected that guests do the potty, medical, FP and other stuff before getting in line and should take into consideration how long the line is. Yes things come up like little kid bladders and medical emergencies but really do 10 people have to squirm up a line all for the one person who had to leave? NO

    Thank goodness SOMEONE agrees with me. I was kinda thinking I was just like a fun sucker or something. Lol. And I love that you didn't let them through. I always thought of it, but never actually blocked them or anything. One time my dad did though. Completely ignored them. He put his each hand on a railing so they couldn't get through, and went deaf for a few minutes untill they finally left. :lmao:

    If you are with just one person, or even your family for that matter, and you need to use the rest room, I don't see a problem with re-joining your party. Now if it is a matter of several people re-joining an already good sized group, then I have some what of a problem with that!

    I just tell them that their party is welcome to come back and wait with them but that I have waited in line the entire time and it's not fair for them to skip ahead of me.

    They usually give up. ;) And if they don't, I grab ahold of the bars on both sides and stand reaaaaaaaaaaaally close to my husband...who is no small man...and they can't physically get through.

    Yep I agree with you 100%! I don't even like it when it's just one person doing it. Those lines aren't all that wide, I don't appreciate being shoved up against a wall or chain.

    I think you either take care of business before getting in line, or not get back in.

    There are other line behavior that drives me nuts though. Those who don't pay attention when the line is moving. Or kick you constantly from behind.

    I agree as well..taking a kid out for a potty break is fine, but I'm seeing more and more people try to line cut in bigger and bigger groups. Yes, I know some medical conditions can't wait and so on, but the majority of the cutters are just self focused folks who really think they are too special to wait in line like the lowly others. As people become ruder, Disney may have to do something. My friend who loves Cedar Point says they will enforce the no cutting rule and therefore, people don't cut.

    I don't mind if it's a couple of people, but not like a big group! Sometimes my sister and I get ahead and walk too fast that our parents aren't able to catch up in time, but then my sister and I let people pass in front of us so we don't upset people.

    Well, I sort of think Disneyland is my happy place, and I do not sweat the little things like one person joining their party.

    I agree with you (OP). Family members shouldn't be a fast pass substitute. Groups shouldn't split off and do their own thing, then expect a short wait on the next ride because someone in the group did the 'waiting' for them. It's very inconsiderate to those behind the group, because late stragglers increase others' time in line.

    However, I have no problem with potty breaks or other REAL issues that make a person leave and come back to the line. It's no fun to ride something fast and bumpy with a full bladder or .... :rolleyes1 :flower3:

    I suppose a couple people doing it is fine... but a group? No way.

    So for you people that don't let them through and tell them to speak to a CM, what do the CM's usually do?

    Yeah that's why when I stand in line I usually have my arms across the line holding onto each side of the line bars or chains so people can't pass me lol. Then when they say "excuse me" I just look at them and say "no cutting"

    ITA. As a mom of little ones, I understand emergency potty breaks, diaper changes, heck, even snack time meltdowns. But there is NO excuse for ADULTS to be doing that. It is VERY irritating standing in line with small kids who don't entirely understand waiting (but are because they are being SO well behaved) and then have a group of teens or adults push their way through because their "party is up there".


    If it's one or 2 people, fine. But not 5 or 6 or 10 rejoining ONE person "saving" a spot in line.:headache:

    Exactly. You cannot predict an emergency diaper change or your 2 yr old deciding they must go potty now even though you just had them in the bathroom 10 mins ago!

    I do not like adults trying to rejoin. If one is in the bathroom still...wait for them to get finished and then you can all join the line together. I wish I was brave enough like some of you to actually say something or block them but I am too shy. But I do not like being shoved to the side so they can squeeze through. I think what bothers me most is that they seem to feel entitled to skipping the line since they know someone up ahead. So annoying!

    Well I'm an adult with Crohn's Disease, so I may have one of those emergency potty breaks myself. Only I won't expect to be able to push my way back in line. My DH and DS will most likely just go on the ride without me, and I'll meet up with them after. Or we'll all leave the line and start over again when all is well.

    I just don't believe in pushing anyone around in a line just so I can have a shorter wait. No matter if there was a good excuse or not to leave it.

    Now imagine if it were a tour group!

    "Excuse us, our tour guide saved us a spot up there!"
    :lmao::lmao::lmao:

    Seriously, though, I remember we did have a very long thread about cutting in line a few weeks ago. We've never had a problem with a small party of up to 2 or 3, but yeah, I'm not going to let a gramps, grandma, aunt, uncle, cousin, cousin once removed, cousin twice removed, and such past me!

    It doesn't bother me, as long as it's not like 10 people. In some of the lines, we've been encouraged by CM's to have one of the adults wait in longer lines (like Nemo or PFF) while the other adult walks around with the kids. It seems really silly and passive-aggressive to me to get bent out of shape to the point that you'd physically block someone from meeting their party in line. Sometimes stuff happens and people have to get out of line. I'm not going to stand there and quiz someone to determine if their excuse was good enough to get back in line. I'll let them through and get on with my day.

    I agree with this 100%. I've said it before on here that this has been going on for as long as I've been going to DL and for me is just one of the things to expect as part of the experience. I'm more interested in having a good time than worrying about if someone else is not standing in line the "right" way. It's not like its going to really add any time to my wait anyways.
