    So would jokes about the person's race..
    or maybe their weight..
    or that maybe their kid looks like they were beat with the ugly stick..

    Humor rarely is 'serious' - but what makes some humor acceptable or not is based on how it offends people or not.

    big difference between the parks poking fun at each other.. and someone picking on or taunting a CUSTOMER'S CLOTHING in a way that that might insult them.

    Why wear a Disney shirt? Because.. uhm... it's clothes they own?

    It's poor poor customer service to do this in a way that would insult customers. Jokes in the shows are typically done by someone with actual talent. Far too often people think they have talent and instead just stick their foot in their mouth.

    Right! And Simpsons is also full on jabs at Universal themselves! To the OP, I don't know what was said to you but at least with respect to the mouse ears in JP: Yes, you are being too sensitive.

    And of course people come to SoCal just for USH, in fact I've met plenty of people here in SoCal who prefer USH and hold it in the same regards that I hold Disney. Kids whose parents took them to USH have established that connection with that park.

    They should be thanking Disney? Then Disney should be thanking all of their inspirations.

    Seeing as how Universal has been drawing crowds for tours since 1915, I'd say they can be a viable theme park without Disneyland.

    As other have said - it's just a joke! At Disney I would joke about Universal shirts by telling them they got off on the wrong freeway, but it's not like I - or any fellow CMs for that matter - were upset and wanted you to leave. I do the same thing to UCLA fans at my store when I wear my Trojan gear, and I get the same ribbing in return. The USH employees were just making a connection to a guest in their own way as they are encouraged to do.

    And yes, if you wear a competitor's brand or character to another park you are ASKING for teasing. It is kind of silly to wear Disney clothes to a non-Disney park unless you're under the age of ten and had no choice or just really like your Disney stuff. But personally I think you should be prepared for a little teasing and be a little less sensitive in this case.

    I am going to say this is not true. It has happened to you "at least twice"? What, you can't remember? And you didn't report it to a supervisor?

    The fact that you are emphasizing Disneyland in your thread and poking at USH seems suspicious.

    Call me crazy but purposely going into a theme park while wearing a rival theme park's shirt is ASKING to be picked on.

    Like when it's October and going to Haunt wearing a Universal shirt. It's a way to get more monsters to scare you twice as much (but hopefully not break character while doing it, which happens and is probably the reason you show your allegiance to Universal and not the event you're at).

    Yeah this....is America.....so yeah that's why you can wear almost any t shirt to a theme parks besides ones that offend people....

    As for the ears...its a joke....they also kill a Disney tourist on the new Kong 3D.....its funny and in no way hurts the Disney C operation....just free advertising

    When I'm at the Mic at the front of the park, I love poking fun at people with Disney shirts, and tell them to enter the store just to my right to get some USH stuff.

    When I do this, I always have a big smile on my face so they always know I'm joking, and they always laugh.

    This makes me think you didn't really want to go to UNI in the first place, and that you have your mind set thinking everything in the park is going to be sub-disney.


    That's your real problem.

    I have never heard this. Do you have an example that might refresh my memory?

    This.

    I used to work at a store in Fashion Island in Newport Beach and most of the tourists there were only interested in the beaches and going to Hollywood. When I was working there, the OC was on TV and many people would ask where they filmed the show (and they were disappointed to hear that most of it was filmed in Redondo Beach and a Hollywood soundstage!). Not once did they mention going to Disneyland. The only thing I would overhear them talking about was either the beaches or going up to some attraction in LA.

    So Cal definitely has two types of tourists -- those who go to Disneyland and those who don't.

    Locals generally don't view the parks in that way. If anything they view them as being different, with different things to offer -- no more and no less. Although they would probably agree with you if asked. But this doesn't necessarily factor into which parks they visit.

    This.

    Doesn't matter to locals. Trust me. There are a lot of locals who would laugh just as much if not more at people who walk around in Disneyland attire as they would at people wearing stuff from Knott's or Universal.

    that opinion is subjective.

    Thank you

    , lol I was on the tram once and we were at the forest/fort once and we saw a deer and the tram driver said "hey look it's Bambi"
    but let's not forget Disney filmed pirates of the carribean, princess diaries, national treasure, bed time stories all Disney movies on UNIVERSAL STUDIOS BACK LOT. And not disney studios. So basically Universal Stuios is "world class"
