    If guests are really doing this it is stupid, wasteful and disrespectful. To me tossing stuff on a ride is the same as vandalism. These rides are for everyone, no one wants to see them trashed.

    What about the birds collecting these brightly colored bits of plastic and elastic? People suck. That’s all I’ve got.

  3. Tamara Dowd

    Put up a camera and charge them for littering at the end of the ride.

  4. Personally, I really don’t see the purpose. I suppose guests want to leave their mark. Maybe they will stop if they know Disney throws these things away. I have never thrown a hair tie on the pile, and I never will. Not a huge fan of this ride; it leaves a bruise on my upper thigh. Don’t know how that happens.

  5. Reading this, my first thought was safety. Could enough discarded hair ties blow into the mechanics of the ride to cause a failure? It’s probably a tiny risk, but I assume it’s still one that Disney wouldn’t want to tolerate.

    You throw a hair tie?? How is that even remotely a fun activity?? Pointless.

    Remember, a third of Americans think a global pandemic is a conspiracy to force people to be vaccinated. Of course there are a bunch of stupid people who think throwing hair ties is fun. Stupid is as stupid does.

    The sad thing is there is no good recycling options for hair ties. DAK works hard on recycling yet garbage bags of these ties have to be thrown away.

  9. Yeti

    Those hair ties aren’t thrown there. They’re all that’s left of the girls the yeti eats. He just spits them out in that spot.

    It’s a bit of a misnomer to say that Disney collects the coins that guests toss into water features and give them to charity. More accurately, they collect the coins and sell them as scrap metal, and give that money to charity.

  11. Just another form of Chronic wasting that should have never been applied to the Disney Magic what so ever…
