From Walt Disney World Resort to Disneyland Resort, there’s a countless number of attractions, live entertainment shows, souvenirs, snacks, and more. In short, they’re huge operations with a lot of moving parts.

But with huge operations such as theme parks come a lot of rules. Like…a lot of rules. And we know that rules are no fun, but at a place like a Disney Park, rules are put in place to keep everybody safe.

Some rules are really obvious simply because we’re so used to hearing them. Announcements such as “Please keep all hands, arms, legs, and feet inside the ride at all times” and “Please refrain from flash photography” are so ingrained in our brains because we’ve heard them a million times while visiting Disney World.

Other rules are obvious because of their inherent implication. After all, you don’t always need a sign to tell you not to climb over a fence and into a restricted area.

However, one such rule is so obvious that it shouldn’t have to be enforced nearly as often as it is: crossing the path of a parade or procession:


NO hagas esto en ningun Parque Disney, ni en cualquier parque temático. No interrumpas un espectáculo y pases por el medio… cargada con cafes! 😳 Es tan sorprendente que aún estamos alucinando! … y eso que pasó hace unos meses 🤦🏻‍♀️ #viajar #disneyparks #disneylandparis #disneyland #dlp #disneylandparis30 #disneyfan #parquestematicos #mickey #portaventura

In this video, we can see a Guest cutting across a parade, holding several cups full of hot drinks. The character performers react as she cuts across, weaving in between the huge vehicles and the dancing characters.

Pulling a maneuver like this is incredibly dangerous, and could result in the injury of the Guest, the character performers, and the Cast Members.

It shouldn’t have to be said, but if you’re ever visiting a Disney Park, do not cut across an oncoming parade. It’s not worth the risk of injury, or of being banned from the Park.
