I mean, I’m glad you’ve somehow escaped this trend, but I guess I’m not really seeing the point of implying that this sort of bad behavior doesn’t happen in Disney parks to the degree multiple posters have reported, or insinuating that people are finding trouble because they’re looking for it or just aren’t kind enough. I mean, OP’s sister was literally assaulted. And we just had an extreme example of bad behavior out at DLR not very long ago.We were just there 6 weeks ago, in 2018 and 2017 for F&W and I have gone on a Friday and Saturday night and yes we heard more than normal curse words in WS (surprisingly mostly females) but never seen anyone falling down drunk. pushing or fighting. I wont go back on a Friday or Saturday night because we enjoy it more in the day. It's just not the scene for our young girls but haven't seen it as bad as some of the post in this thread. The best thing though was this lady that kept blowing her horn on her ECV behind us. I finally turned around and she yelled "MOVE" lol!!! I laughed and kept walking. It was the funniest thing ever!
Chatting and making nice with people in queues doesn’t negate any of this, lol. I did that all weekend, and it didn’t magically prevent or erase the folks yelling at beleaguered CMs because the Skyliner wasn’t working, or the boorish family at the AK bus stop who’d evidently wandered in from MTV’s Jersey Shore cursing up a storm about the bus back to BC/YC taking too long. (One of the Dads looked like he was having a roid rage fit tbh.) Was the entire weekend like this? Of course not. Most of the guests I ran into were perfectly lovely folks just there to have fun, and I had some amazing interactions and met lots of nice people.
Was the foolishness and being extra noticeable during a holiday weekend filled with guests wearing tacky shirts about how much they think drinking to sloppy excess in a theme park full of kids and families is a reasonable substitute for a personality? Yeah, actually. And I’m not the first to note that either. I thought people were exaggerating until I saw it for myself. And it’s worth pointing out that the Sunday night crowd was a total 180. Sometimes it’s just the day you go.
