Guest behavior at Walt Disney World Resort has been a significant issue, and it seems only to be getting worse.

Walt Disney World Resort is a popular tourist location; thousands of guests visit it daily. Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Over at Magic Kingdom one of their most iconic attractions is the beloved Pirates of the Caribbean ride, which transports guests into an adventure through pirate-infested waters.

Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom quickly became a fan-favorite, drawing guests of all ages into its immersive world of pirates, treasure-filled caves, and lively Caribbean towns. The attraction was inspired by the original Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland in California but features its own unique storyline and design elements.

As guests board their boats and set sail on the gentle waters of the bayou, they are greeted by an atmospheric queue filled with intricate details, including a rustic fortress and a bustling marketplace. Once inside, the journey begins, plunging guests into the heart of a pirate raid on a Caribbean port town.

From the eerie glow of Davy Jones’ Locker to the rowdy antics of the drunken pirates, every scene in Pirates of the Caribbean is meticulously crafted to immerse guests in the world of piracy. The ride’s iconic theme song, “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me),” sets the mood as guests encounter various animatronic characters, including Captain Jack Sparrow.

Sadly, in a Reddit thread, one Disney World guest who waited over an hour to ride Pirates of the Caribbean recently shared an incident involving another guest on their boat that ruined their experience when they recorded the attraction and took photos.

Waited an hour for Pirates just to watch a phone the entire ride. Flash was intermittently going on for photos, too.

Taking photos on attractions is a common issue as guests attempt to take unauthorized photos or videos while enjoy rides at Walt Disney World Resort.

Despite clear signage and verbal instructions from cast members, some guests ignore these rules, believing that capturing a quick snapshot is harmless. However, unauthorized photography can pose safety risks, distract from the ride experience, and violate the privacy of other guests.

When Disney World guests get on dark rides like Pirates of the Caribbean or The Haunted Mansion, guests may be tempted to use flash photography to capture moments of the ride’s scenes.

Not only does this disrupt the atmosphere and storytelling of the attraction, but it can also interfere with the experience for other guests trying to enjoy the ride without distractions.
