  • What Policies Would You Like Disneyland to Adopt and Announce?

    The thread about annoying guests made me think of all the conditions Disney should place on visitors beyond the standard prescriptions against flash photography, eating, and drinking.

    Here are a few off the top of my head:
    • Please remain quiet inside attractions.
    • Kindly refrain from littering.
    • Guests who are unable to understand English must thoroughly and carefully read the essential information contained in Disneyland guidebooks, as this information may not be available elsewhere in other languages.
    What others would you like to see that have thusfar been overlooked? How might they be worded? And, in what ways could Disneyland publish or announce these requests and conditions so that they are understood more completely?

    I prefer none. I mean when I go to DL, I always try to go there and have fun.

    As for your opinions, well none of them will work. This is why, to begin with they can't force anyone to stay quiet. That's like saying that no one screams on ToT while on the ride or singing-a-long on POTC. As much as ppl get annoying, it just wouldn't work. I suggest that ppl don't like the noise that ppl make on the attractions, either don't go on them or buy some ear plugs.

    Disney can't stop ppl from littering. Every one does it and even those who don't admit does it. It's universal. No one is perfect.

    As for your last one, that's discriminating to many ppl who come to DL (well according to me). You can't make ppl who don't understand English read a guidebook about the park. Ppl should do it on their free will, not b/c make locals or APH complain. DL wouldn't care because they know that tourists are the ones that spend alot of money on the parks than locals or APH. Since many locals and APH hardly spend any money on the parks. If ppl really want them to read guidebooks then everyone should read guidebooks about the park, not just those who can't understand English.

    Every theme park are the same and none of them are perfect. DL is no exception.

    The only advice I can give to ppl who complain about annoying ppl in the parks is, Chill out and have fun. Don't let stupid little things ruin your fun, because the more you guys complain the more you guys become the annoying ones.

      I would love to expand on this whole "non-English speaking" thing. Personally? I'm a big proponent of "Welcome to America, we speak English here." As the Disneyland Resort is in America, I think that having the expectation that guests will know how to speak the language the country has adopted as it's primary means of communication should be a priority. However, I'm sure the politically correct nature that has been adressed in other threads still applies.

        I agree. Disney should insist that everyone review the guidebooks, but guests who speak languages other than English need especially to use the written materials Disney provides.

          The Disneyland Railroad, the Disneyland Monorail System, and the tram service to and from the parking areas offer good opportunities to inform guests that the policies and safety instructions that apply to these locations actually apply to all Disneyland vehicles and attractions.

            BS. Disneyland is a tourist destination. That kind of hard line attitude only alienates people. They're visiting a theme park, not applying for a job. I don't care what language they speak. Disneyland should and does offer maps in other languages.

            Despite language barriers I never failed to find a way to communicate with someone despite them not speaking English very well.

            You guys act like people from other countries are retarded. There could be zero safety spiels and people would pretty much know what to do. You don't need to study pages of rules to know how to visit a theme park.

              Nice ideas in theory, but in practice, this would be an absolute nightmare.
              Silence on the rides? Eeep. What's a CM supposed to do? Get on the speakers and create more noise asking people to stop screaming, singing or anything? E-stop the ride so that people following that rule can be escorted off? Won't work.

              Instead, I propose that there be a NUISANCE (sp?) rule. If someone is making SO much noise that it prevents a majority of the people from enjoying the ride, then, at the end of the ride, they should have security there and deal with that. This would not include singing along, ect, but would have to be a larger noise disturbance.

              As for the reading materials requirement, Fine, but how are you going to prove that they've read it? Are you going to hire a CM to make sure they've read it? There's always someone who speaks a foreign language. It's what makes the parks great, hearing and getting to practice (if you speak)a different language. Come on, safety speils are in 3-4 different langagues. it's just the way it is. I just dont' see how it would work long term.

              But that's just my opinion.

                In an effort to keep families together and eliminate the "Disneyland Daycare" system, those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

                  They want you to take an exam when you enter the park. It's pass or fail with an 80% getting you into the park! Good luck students.

                  If I want draconian rules that make no sense I'll go to Knott's. There's only one rule you need to know when you go anywhere, don't be an a-hole.

                    • Kindly refrain from littering. Please use the waste receptacles provided. Bins accepting cans and bottles for recycling are available.
                    I prefer a stated policy on littering, along with enforcement, however Draconian, to Disney having to staff an army of custodians charged with collecting the trash of a small number of slobs.

                      I would have a dress code that prohibits people from wearing trashy clothes, pants that fall below their waistline, clothing that features gang related material, and clothing that features obscene or sexual material.

                        You obviously don't live in Arizona, where people who speak a different language (generally Spanish, though there are some exceptions where people who speak Spanish communicate nicely, and it's the people who speak ANOTHER language that pose a problem) refuse to find a way to communicate with you.

                          There is already a dress code.



                          The park map includes a paragraph on courtesy and touches on proper attire. If you're not careful all these rules are going to make the main gate look like the main entrance to Six Flags. It's truly not needed.

                              Apparently no one obeys the dress code. It's just like high school!
