    Alternately, If someone bumps you from behind, most times all that is required is a simple excuse me from the bumpee, then the bumper will realize that he is bumping (most times). There is no need to yell at this person, unless you would like to appear more moronic than the bumper.

    most embarassing moment at Disneyland:
    I was in line for autopia with my girlfriend, talking to her and not noticing anything else.
    This woman in front of me whips around and informs me at the top of her lungs so the whole queue can hear,
    "Will you PLEASE stop touching my ***!"

    I say, "Oh, I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to..."

    She points to my girlfriend, "Well, I didn't think so with THAT around."

    it was the first and only time I wanted to leave Disneyland, I was so embarassed. If someone is doing something that bothers you, and doesn't seem to notice it, its ok to let them know, IN A POLITE WAY. don't let them continue if its just going to make you steam until you explode in anger, people in line won't notice someone bumping you, but they will notice a screaming nutcase.

      Thank you for your post, Sadako, and I wish to make clear that I do not wish violence upon anyone (I tend to be a pacifist, in fact... difficult at times due to living in a nation where "he needed killin'" seems to be a well-accepted sentiment among the masses). I'm sure it appears otherwise due to the limitations of the text medium to convey emotion and tone accurately (particularly sarcasm), but rest assured that that is neither my personality nor my modus operandi.

        Wow, this thread got mean in a hurry.

        yikes, did it ever!

        This reminds me another post, could have been on another forum, but a CM made a comment about how guests get on his nerves and whooeee did people freak out over that one!!


        We got plenty of "looks" as we pushed her down Main St., and especially as we entered the alternate access lines for the rides. Sure, she LOOKED fine, but unless you knew that she had had the surgery, you couldn't tell (no cast at that time).
        Thanks for posting this. Last time I was at Disney I was a bit surprised with the seemingly able-bodied people riding around in electric chairs. I was thinking, "what is up with these people!", when all along it was MY problem.:blush:

          I completely agree, I don't understand it either. Like you said, that is what breasts are FOR. I can't fathom how a person can see a mother breast feeding and think it a vulgar or disgusting act. Breasts are not offensive, especially when they are being used to do the best possible thing a mother can do for her baby. That kind of attitude from people just sickens me.
          This is one of my favorite BF quotes:

          "I make milk. What's your superpower?" :thumbup:

          I highly doubt most BFing moms whip out their breasts to feed their babies as some kind of exhibitionist display. I personally never BF'd in public because Pixie Kid got way too distracted and would take "me'" with him as he turned to see what was going on. :lol: However, if I would have needed to back then, I'd hate to have to try to make it all the way from Toontown to the Baby Center with a screaming baby when I could have just fed him on a bench in Toon Park. Of course, I guess I could hand out blankets so people could cover their heads so they don't have to see. :razz:

          Darn it, I didn't bite my tongue.

            I cannot believe how vividly that memory came back to me when I read your post. OUCHY!!!

            I breastfed both of my babies at DL, but in the Carnation Baby Center. Is is still called that? It's been about 6 years since I was a walking snack bar.

            I remember one particularly frantic sprint across the park to get there. It was my first baby, in full meltdown -- wanted service right that instant. Sheesh, I remember she was screaming like I had been starving her! I had never been around babies, so I think I was a little bit of a nervous first-time mommy. I didn't like her to cry even for a minute.

            My DH got really uncomfortable if I had to nurse in public. Even though I always used a light receiving blanket, he didn't like it. He did not want people staring or eye-rolling at us. I must admit that it was more comfortable and relaxing in the baby center, nice to be out of the heat.

              NO IMPROPER USAGE OF THEME PARK TERMINOLOGY

              Splash Mountain - Not the log ride
              Haunted Mansion - Not the haunted house
              Fantasyland - Not fairy land (yep, I heard someone say that)
              Autopia - Not the cars
              Disney's California Adventure (DCA) - Not California World (yep, I heard someone say that too!)
              Audio Animatronics - Not robots

              I could go on and on and on, but I'll stop now......

              People are idiots. Research DL and learn the proper terminology - you'll enjoy the park much more - otherwise, you have no business coming.

                  Wow that seems kind of harsh! Not everyone is into DL research and I bet they still have fun at the parks, even if they do call Slash Mt. "the log ride."

                    I understand where you are coming from. And I'm sure that there are folks that will try to "beat the system" by renting a chair. Please let me share our experiences with a wheelchair rental.

                    Due to my wife having re-constructive surgery on her foot (7 hour surgery with 6 weeks of FULL bed-rest), we had to rent a chair for her on our trip to the Park. This was about 6 months after her surgery, which was about half-way through her PT. She could stand briefly and walk short distances, but a full day at the Park would have been detrimental to her foot.

                    Some might say to not go to the Park in the first place, but it was summer break for the kids and it was a planned in advance trip that she really was looking forward to. It was great for her mental well being as well. The doctor had also approved of the trip, but of course with limitations.

                    We got plenty of "looks" as we pushed her down Main St., and especially as we entered the alternate access lines for the rides. Sure, she LOOKED fine, but unless you knew that she had had the surgery, you couldn't tell (no cast at that time). We actually heard comments from folks that were accusing us of trying to beat the lines by using a wheelchair!

                    It got to the point of barely being able to take. She felt terrible. We all did.

                    I felt like we needed to put a sign on her stating she had recently had surgery and couldn't stand for more than a few minutes.

                    Anyway...I guess that I am trying to remind folks of the old adage, "please don't judge a book by its cover".

                    Thanks!
                    Very true. My most recent trip to Disneyland to play, I was in the middle of some severe knee issues, and had to keep my leg as close to straight as I could manage. The idea of hobbling around the park all day was pretty unbearable, so we rented me a wheelchair. I didn't really pay attention to the reactions of people (well, except the CMs I knew, who responded unanimously with "What did you do??") but I'm sure I got some strange looks. Not everyone who needs special assistance at the park has a visible disability, that's why we have the Guest Assistance Cards.

                      I realize that characters from the movie "Cars" will probably take over Autopia one day; however, most people do not know this - so they are still using improper terminology.

                        So, is it ok to just say "Pirates" or must we use "Pirates of the Caribbean"?
                        If we say "The canoes" and not "Dave Crockett's Explorer Canoes", should we just stay home and not cause people who use the correct names any trouble?

                        I didn't know people had to take a test and show that they know correct terminology before being allowed into the park.

                        Hey..maybe that's a great idea. That will keep out the people who don't respect Disney enough. Great idea, Princess!
