The Most Magical Place on Earth is not immune to irritating behavior. Anyone who visits frequently will tell you that!

From Guests cutting in long lines to Guests being rude to Cast Members and other Guests to children loudly fussing to really rainy days, Walt Disney World Resort sees its fair share of unpleasantness. Usually, that one-of-a-kind Disney magic is enough to offset any gloominess, and a day at Disney is rarely ruined by a brief moment of chaos…but this increasingly popular habit is enough to create long-lasting impressions.

The general consensus is that anyone playing their own music, videos, TV shows, or movies in public (whether visiting Walt Disney World or not) is considered rude. But at Walt Disney World, this habit is especially unpleasant!

Whether relaxing at a Disney Resort hotel, riding on Disney transportation, or having fun at one of Walt Disney World’s theme parks, there is always music playing in the background. Many Guests want to hear this ambient music as it creates the illusion and immersion required for that world-famous Disney magic, further transporting Guests into another world.

When others play loud, disruptive music, it creates a distracting and potentially overstimulating environment!
