    When it's a family or something and they're waiting and some other members join in front of us, I get kind of pissed, but then I get over it. I don't call them on the spot.

    Never notice the stroller moms, but can see where they can hurt you. haha.

    Ahhh, the "smell". Yeah that smell is dreadful.

    All these things remind me of theme parks, so that sucks. But then I go on the ride and remember its more, its DL.

      Re: How do you deal with______at Disneyland?

      Well, being the big guy that I am has kinda' given me a big mouth (I can normally get away with it without fear of somebody getting all in my face). So, if somebody outright jumps into the line ahead of others, I'll typically inform them, in no uncertain terms, of where the beginning of the line actually is. If it's a matter of a couple people in line and a few of their friends join them, that's a bit different. It's a bit annoying, but not really against the norm. Then again, if the couple of people in line are joined by another large group, then I would probably, at least, mention to them that their being kinda' rude.

      I've had issues with people - not just moms - with strollers, at DLR, but most of the time it's been accidental and the parent involved apologized right away. What really bugs me is when there is a family with multiple kids, and while the parent is carrying the kid that would normally be in the stroller, the old brother or sister (somewhere between 5 and 12 years old, in my experience) is put in charge of pushing the stroller around. Kids of that age typically have little interest in watching where they are going. On one occasion, the same kid rammed my leg with the stroller three times while in the same line (for the train). After the third time, his parents were politely asked if they could simply fold up the unused stroller.

      That smell? Well, yeah. With the high-quality food that some of the DLR eateries offer, it happens. It may be gross but at least it's generally harmless. There have been a couple of times where I could smell that someone was smoking in line for a ride (outside queue). On both occasions, I didn't have to say a word about it because other people in line took care of it first. On one of these occasions, the offending guest was a frenchman and took rather obvious offense at others telling where he could or could not smoke, at which point a number of others in line told him off, and he made his way out of line, in le huff. It was a joyous moment.

        I sometimes let em get to me, Like when the fireworks are over and I try to sneak in a fantasmic show, and I am being herded like cattle then I get rammed in the back of my leg, The first time I let it go, The second time Ok things happen, the third time I look back and this lady is looking at me like "Get out of my way" Im thinking lady I cant go anywhere. That tends to get to me.

          My biggest peeve is when we are waiting for a show like the fireworks or fantasmic and a family or a group of people step in with no sense of personal space. The try to cram as many people as they can into a tiny spot. All of a sudden instead of being in a comfortable, but not too selfish of a space, I'm standing shoulder to shoulder with people i don't know bumping in to me. I understand that these shows get crowded but its not a rock concert where people are pushing their way up to the stage. Please have a little sense of personal space.

            It's not the cutting in line at attractions that bothers me, it's when I'm waiting for an hour or two hours for a show and 10 minutes before the show people want to squeeze right next to you and move you out of your position!

              I believe in the official DLR rules, one is not permitted to push empty strollers. You are also not allowed to pull them behind you.

              I'm on board with BDF. I will point out where the back of the line is to people that seem to be doing it on purpose. Sometimes it can be an accident, and those folks usually apologize. But if that's not the case, I can be pretty snarky. Watch out, line-cutters! :rant:

                    Back in June 12 when watching Fantasmic! I was trying to get a better view for the second show and Magical. Many strollers hit my feet and people were shoving each other. Why do people want to get a better view of the fireworks when you can see them near Rivers of America? This is one of the reasons why I want to ban strollers from the park. June 12 was probably the worst day at Disneyland for me.

                            I get mad when I see cutters, but I immediately remind myself to not get worked up about it and let it ruin my fun. I just know if I make the effort to call someone out on it, the dark cloud of that moment is going to linger with me for the rest of the day and I really don't want that. Being at DL is when I'm happiest and I don't want to let someone like that wreck my mood.

                            As for strollers, I'd like to just ban them outright, but I don't have kids so that's pretty easy for me to say.

                              Yeah, talking really really REALLY loud on their cell phones. The people on the other end must be deaf or have it on speaker. What's up with that?

                              Selfish people are everywhere, I always hoped the lowest percentages would be at DL.

                                Spill a Coke on their feet. Nothing worse than walking around all day with wet squishy shoes.

                                  I had that EXACT problem at DLR last time I went to Fantasmic, the people coming in at the last minute and shoving you out! Only this time, their child spilled this nice father and son's hot cocoa all over the nice father and son who had been there since before I even arrived, and I got there over an hour early!

                                  The best part was that the parents looked right at what had happened, at the spilled hot cocoa, and simply moved their child out of the way and left it at that. No napkins offered, nothing, so the father said "That's alright" to no one in particular and went and got napkins to clean up the mess they had made. It made me sick.

                                  The strollers make me nuts as well, it's like an onslaught from every possible direction constantly. *shudders* Gives me nightmares!!! Then I see the mass of them parked outside rides and they are just packed with people's things and it amazes the hell out of me.

                                    Why do people bring babies to Disneyland in the first place? What could a baby possibly get out of the experience? And doesn't it impede the parents' ability to enjoy the park, having to look after a baby constantly? Disneyland is an entertainment complex, and you wouldn't typically bring a baby with you to another entertainment venue such as a concert or movie theater. You would get a babysitter. So why do people insist on dragging their babies there at all, and making everyone miserable including the baby?

                                      My boyfriend and I asked ourselves this VERY question. This spurred a private joke we have, as DLR is not the only place people bring babies when it seems INSANE to do so. Every time we see an instance of this we go "Babies LOVE _____" and insert wherever it is. Every time we saw a screaming, crying infant at DLR we looked at each other and smirked and said "Babies LOVE Disneyland".

                                        I get annoyed at people who use flash photography inside purposely dark attractions. I'll usually stay quiet about it, but boil on the inside. My sister will tell at them on the spot to stop, and maybe curse at them after a while if they don't stop. Oh, how I love my sister.
