If you frequent Disneyland Resort — as a lot of locals do — then you know that there is a chance that, on any given day, you could see a celebrity. Oftentimes, those celebrities will be seen being escorted around Disneyland or Disney California Adventure with Cast Members wearing plaid vests. Those vests indicate that the group has paid for a VIP Tour — which means that they don’t have to wait in the stand-by queues to ride an attraction, they get automatic Lightning Lane access.
While the Guests on the VIP tours do get Lightning Lane access, they typically do not get to ride the attractions by themselves. And most would never think to ask. However, that same thought process does not seem to run in the Kardashian family. Kim and her sister Khloé Kardashian recently visited The Happiest Place on Earth with their daughters Chicago and True, as well as their brother Rob’s daughter, Dream. The girls were excited to be in the Parks and ride some of the most popular attractions, which is where the problems originated.
Disneyland Resort is always crowded, as an “off-season” seems to be a thing of the past. Many attraction wait times frequently surpass 30 minutes, forcing Guests to pick and choose what attractions are most important to ride during their trip. So, you can imagine the frustration many of them felt when they were forced to wait even longer because the Kardashians were riding the attractions — by themselves.
That’s right. Kim and Khloé posted videos from their magical trip, and it is evident that no one else is on the ride when they are. Kim and her family rode the Dumbo attraction and all of the other ride vehicles are empty. The long line and crowds can be seen as they circle the Guests.

There were also aggravated Guests at the Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland. Rachael Kevin was visiting Disneyland with her family, waiting to ride the teacups, and shared a video of the long line of people all waiting while the Kardashians rode by themselves. According to Rachael, her family and everyone else in line, were forced to wait even longer, so the Kardashians could have the ride to themselves. In the video, young children can be seen watching a ton of empty cups go around while only a handful of people enjoy the ride.
Now, this is not completely on the Kardashians. A lot of the blame should be directed at Disney. Just because you are a celebrity does not mean that you should get all sorts of special treatment. It does not mean that you should get the ride to yourself. Disney does not have to allow this. They could treat the Kardashians the same as every other group at the Park. They could tell them that their other Guests matter just as much. But they don’t.
How would you feel if you were forced to wait for a celebrity to ride an attraction by themselves?
