While becoming a  Walt Disney World Cast Member may be a dream for many people, no one questions that it is hard work. You have to maintain an upbeat attitude and keep a smile on your face no matter what situation you encounter. However, we are human, and sometimes our emotions get the better of us. Even though we may want to scream and yell and stomp off, Disney Cast Members know that that is not an option. Therefore, they do everything they can to keep composure and keep the magic alive.

That patience was put to the ultimate test one day for one Walt Disney World Cast Member. The unknown Cast Member was working on Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom. The theater moves as Guests follow a family through 4 generations. Because the theater moves, Guests are required to remain seated throughout the entirety of the show in order to keep everyone safe. Unfortunately for everyone else in the theater, some Guests refused to believe that those rules applied to them.

In the video below, shared by TikToker Disney Stuff!, the Cast Member is heard repeatedly telling Guests that they must remain seated. He says it in English more than once, then switches to Spanish, in case the Guests in question did not speak English. He then continued to repeat himself in English, noticeably getting more and more frustrated. Guests continue to stand and exit the theater, completely ignoring the Cast Member’s pleas.

Sadly, this is just one more instance of Guests behaving badly while at the Parks. Since the theme parks reopened, it seems that bad behavior has gotten a lot worse, from numerous fights at the Parks to leaving trash everywhere — including on attractions — and making a complete mess in restaurants and leaving a Cast Member to make everything spick and span.

What is the worst behavior you have seen while visiting a Disney Park?
