Unfortunately, it’s no secret that Guests visiting Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort are becoming more and more inconsiderate.

Whether discussing something as outrageous as a screaming match or a fistfight within a Disney Park or something as tame as line-cutting and flash photography during dark rides, it’s true that common courtesy is often missing from the Disney experience as of late.

We recently reported on an instance of in-person public shaming in which one Guest shone a flashlight in another Guest’s face in an act of revenge for taking flash photography during a dark ride.

Recently, another Guest decided to get their revenge in a similar act of shaming. Although this time, it was over social media:

Hey please don’t be this kind of guest especially on dark rides, ruins the experience for everyone!

However, this is the wrong way to respond to poor Guest behavior. Even when others lack common courtesy, it’s always a good idea to respond courteously or to take the ‘kill them with kindness’ approach.

Instead of taking matters into one’s own hands, one should always approach a Cast Member instead. After all, it’s best to set an example and be the magic we want to see when visiting Walt Disney World.
