    Oh, or when they say "Disney World" when they mean Magic Kingdom? :rotfl:

    People in the midwest tend to stick to the right side of the sidewalk, at least that I've noticed. Maybe it's a cultural thing? :confused:

    On a similar note from the posts above mine, I hate this one:

    "I love Disney World."
    "Which one?"

    :teacher: Disney World and Disneyland are NOT the same thing!! :headache:

    Lol, I thought everyone knew the walk on the right rule. Otherwise people run into one another when walking on sidewalks!

    (Midwest logic?)

    People using iPads to take photos... I just think it looks so stupid holding that big thing to take photos.

    Flash photos on dark rides.

    People that just STOP in the middle of the walk way.

    People that dilly dally in lines. I don't want them up the person in front of theirs butt but at least keep up and don't have room for 20 people in front of you.

    Your last one bothers me too, but I haven't decided if it is logical. As long as they aren't missing loading it really doesn't matter!

    Mine is small children in the hot tub when it's already at the posted capacity.

    This happened to us. The hot tub at POFQ has a posted capacity of nine. We got in it and there were exactly nine of us in it. Well then this family group of 4 adults and 6 kids that looked like they were 10 and under crowded their way in. I suspect they did it on purpose to get the rest of us to leave, and it worked. Once the kids started splashing around the rest of us got out. This was at 10:30 pm.

    The worst part is they all had magic bands, well, POFQ wasn't testing magic bands at the time (early September) so they couldn't have been guests there. Now, POR was, so I realize they probably came from there, but sheesh, what's wrong with the hot tubs in POR that you have to crowd us out of ours!

    the mariner rule is : port to port. if you are facing the bow (front of the ship/boat) the port is on your left. (remember this by port and left are each 4 letters. righta and starboard are each MORE than 4 letters)

    on waterways, it is always port to port.
    (and the red light is on the port side, the green light on the starboard side. remember this by remembering that port wine is red)

    see this way if you see lights, maybe a boat, and you see a green light on the left and a red light on the right, you now the boat is coming TOWARDS you.

    international waters, you always pass port to port.

    -People who take photos on rides, flash or no flash (but I only yell at the people who use flash, non-flash photos is more my own pet peeve)

    -Parents who yell at their children "I spent xxxx amount of money to go to Disney and you're going to smile and like it!"

    -When someone doesn't go up on Dumbo, just stays at the bottom. I know this is more my own weird little thing, but you know the ride goes up, GO UP. I don't know why that has always bothered me so much. It's a silly thing I know, but it just irks me.

    -When people scream on Maelstrom. Come on people, it's Maelstrom.

    -When people don't dress appropriately

    -Large groups of chanting people. Why must they chant? I don't get it.

    -Children with glowsticks on dark rides.

    I admit , the OP did not take into account the inevitable attack on the politically incorrctness of th e word "foreigners", or the assumption that someone not speaking english would be a visitor from another country.
    I will re wrod it:
    One of my pet peeves is people... no matter where their country of origion or "mother tongue" (haven't checked my internet dictionary lately.. is that still okay to say?;)
    who obviously don't understand the language of the narration of the show. so speak through it, either because they are bored and can't understand it, or one person understands it and is translating it to the others, thereby disturbing everyone around them.

    whle ANYONE, of ANY country, or in ANYlanguage who talks loudly in a show is annoying, I have noticed that it happens MUCH more predominantly amongst those who seem to not speak english. (wherever theyactually live)

    and ,since I hapen to know a little spanish, it has been myexpereince that OFTEN it is just people who are bored cause they can't understand the narrator (gathered from my garnishment of their conversation) OR one person is trnaslating for the others. THEREBY ruining it for those around them.

    the cook where I work took his family to WDW last year. I suggested to him to get the translator for his wife (who does not speak ANY english.. they have been in the usa for 18 years). on return I asked how that helped. his response.. "no, I just told her what they were saying through the whole thing."

    he showed me wonderful photos and videos of the parade. I said "wow! how long did you stake out those spots?" he siad, we just walkd up by the ropes before it started." me" didn't they ask hyou to move?" him" yeah, some guys came up and tried to tell us to go away, but we just pretended we didnt' speak english"

    ergo... if I am at any type of show in, say, france,or italy and the narrative is in french.or italian and i don't speak french,or italian I would either seek out if they had audio translators, or sit and enjoy the music and the visual..

    I would NOT EVER!!! talk in english through the entire show. either because we were bored or because I could understand french and translate to the rest of my family.

    have NONE of you been to the Lyric Opera in Chicago? you do NOT hear people throughout the auditorium chattering;translating to english!!!

    I was at a local theater were they show broadcasts of the Metropolitan Opera on a movie screen. Over the summer, they have encore performances of the previous season. I went to go see 'La Traviata', and there was this older lady sitting behind me translating the lyrics for her friend. I totally turned around and gave her 'the look'. Thankfully she got it. If not I was ready to let her know that there are sub-titles on the screen!!!!!

    That is awful, awful opera etiquette! There are sub/super-titles for a reason! Even without them, people have enjoyed opera in a language they do not understand for centuries. Maybe this person would prefer musical theater...

    When I was in Disneyland in June, a girl behind me on a school trip decided that she needed to scream her blood curdling scream every five seconds during the fireworks. I'm not normally one to tell people to stop, but I couldn't take it any more. It wasn't that she was scared because she was smiling and laughing the whole time that she wasn't screaming.

    Adults that stand in front of kids at a parade. I try to stake my claim early because I like photographing the parades. That being said, I always make sure that the kids (especially the younger ones) have the spot on the curb (as long as it's okay with their parents). Even my grandma who takes up a lot of space on the curb with her ECV will make sure that kids get the front row seat. Disney World is great for adults, but these kids are only kids once.

    People who disrespect cast members who are just doing their job.

    People who complain on the Dis about every thing they can think of about Disney, then turn around and go back as soon as they can. If there's that many things that you see 'wrong', why do you even want to be there? They won't ever be 'perfect'. :confused3

    The dress code of some - or 'lack' thereof.

    Fanatics are often the biggest critics. I've always wondered that about the people who hated everything about those most recent three Star Wars movies, but who were also the first ones in line to see the opening-day midnight showings or to buy the DVDs.
