    This happens all the time, one person gets in line and later several more people work their way past all the others in line to join that one person, it is blatant line cutting. The cast members are virtually powerless to enforce the rules. It’s rude, it’s selfish and it should not be tolerated by CMs, things like this just contribute to a less than magical experience.

    1. Marsha

      Let’s take a walk to the EXIT!!

      1. Heather Weber

        Was just at MK on Wed. In line for Peter pan and 3 different groups did this line jumping. I would love to say something but did not want to risk getting into a fight which is more common now. This is where Disney needs to crack down and get it under control. It should not be up to other guests to impose the rules on ignorant people. Think they should be kicked out at least for the day. Aren’t there cameras everywhere? Disney needs to get a better handle on entitled guests ruining the magic for everyone else.

        That’s not how it works. You all wait in line. Who in the world told you THIS ok. Because it really is not.

  2. Grea

    I would rather have my kids sit in shade and enjoy the park while I wait in the line for 3 hours for their ride. We come to the park for the kids and don’t want them to spend more than half the day in lines. I would not cut in front of others… wait patiently in the line like others, and when the turn comes close, call the rest of the family to join. This is to maximize the experience that the kids have in the park and not a disservice.

    1. Mike

      They should stand inline like everyone else. It’s part of the “experience.”

    2. Belinda

      …but what you described is literally your family cutting in front of others.

    3. Bryan

      It is a disservice what you described it basically what other people said that bothers them, and also let’s say someone is near the front if the ride and they already counted and they noticed that they will be in the next train that comes just barely and then the rest of your family comes and gets in front of them and now they have to wait for another train to come, that is not fair because they waited in line you family didn’t only you did.

      1. Bryan

        By you family I mean your

    4. Michael

      That seems unfair to all the customers who waited their turn. What if everybody felt the same and did that?

      1. CP57

        I am handicapped and 8 need to use my mobility scooter to get around, my husband is my care giver. Well, we were with our 2 friends and 5heir 2 children and I had to get our if line BC I had to use the rest room and if course my husband had to come with me. It was embarrassing to find a way to get out of line in of itself but when we returned I had fully expectedthat we were now going to have to be at the back of the line (again. I have to use my mobility scooter and those waiting lines are of course not very wide) we just waved at our friends and said see you at the end…
        I have to say that those people behind us in the line that saw that we were back and at the end of the line and were generous and VERY helpful l. when Some of them even said to come back and then told those behind them that we were there but had to get out of line. THANKFULLY most of the people cleared a way for us to get back to our group. Not everyone is a line jumper and to this day am very humbled by their kindness to let us meet back up with our party….

    5. Kat

      That is literally a line cutting situation. Disney uses measures to set the wait times, including how many people go past certain points at a given time. People like you are messing up wait times as well as making the people behind them wait longer because suddenly your apparent party of one turns into a party of 4 or more. So rude! If my family can wait in line, so can yours.

    6. Max

      Man, and here I’ve been teaching my kids they should wait their turn like everyone else, like a bunch of suckers.

    7. Phil

      You waited 3 hours for a ride? What you should do is to divide the amount you paid per person by the amount of rides. Then ask yourself, was it worth it?

    8. Ashley

      That’s line cutting. Maybe you should pay for a fast pass if you don’t want them to wait in lines. It’s part of the experience.
      Also there is shade in the lines.

    9. Bxmamipr712

      That is literally the definition of line cutting Karen. If your kids can’t wait their turn, then they shouldn’t go. If they can’t wait I’m a line, I’m sure they are perfect, well-behaved children. I hope you get kicked out next time.

    10. Deb

      Your kids are no more special than anyone elses so stop being an arrogant pig and wait with your family inline the same as everyone else

    11. KP

      Imagine if we all did this….

      1. WDWv Dad

        Let me start by saying I’m very much against line jumping in general. Everyone else has patiently waited in the line and you are not special, wait your turn!

        That being said, I do cut a little slack to those with small children rejoining families, especially if I know they were already there. I have to admit, I’ve done it myself where my wife, daughter, son, and I were in line for a ride. After about 30 minutes my 3 year old son then told me he needed to go potty, so I left my daughter with my wife and took him. For those without children, kids that age don’t really have a great ability to “hold it” so it becomes a race against the clock.

        I expected to just wait at the end of the line and saw my wife and daughter when we returned, so walked up to tell them we were all done and would be at the end, but the people behind us saw us and insisted we rejoin our family. I’m sure to those further back it looked like we were line jumping, and perhaps technically we were, but I tend to try to cut breaks to those with small children and just remember that time that nice strangers let us back in after a quick restroom run so we could ride with our family.

    12. Mike C

      You just described what people are complaining about. If your children can’t wait in line, go to a museum or fishing.

    13. Patricia Staton

      Line jumping has been going on for years at Disney World. One year when my daughter was 7 y/o we encountered large groups that moved through the parks with a leader holding a small flag from maybe from their native country. They moved in a tight line and did not hesitate to cut off other people as they moved forward. We’re talking about groups of at least 20 or more of both adults and older children. Later as the day progressed smaller groups 10-15 would try the line cutting technique and were fairly successful. At some point they tried it with me. By then my patience were thinning so I told the group that line cutting was not allowed at the park. The teen replied, “no speak english”. I smiled and said “then let me say it in your language”. No I did not know what language was his, maybe Spanish which I did not speak. I explained in my native language that if I reported them for line cutting to the attendant at the front for continuous line jumping that they would be asked to leave and then used a universal term ” without a refund of your money”. The line holder immediately came back to his group and nothing else was said except from me. “Well bless your hearts.

      1. Patricia Staton

        That 7 y/o is now 33.

      2. Mary

        The fact that you are describing people that
        spend huge amounts of money to wait hours in line for most rides in the worst weather makes me think there is Disneyland in California. Why not just go there? Save money, Save the stress, Save hours in line and spend a couple days doing other things like going to Universal Studios or many other places.

    14. Debbie

      NO, this is line jumping and it’s rude and inconsiderate…you don’t want the kids to stand in line, then pay the extra for LL. I make the exception for the parent that has to take the kid(or themselves) to the potty. We all want to maximize the park experience

    15. Tsmith

      If they can’t b out in the sun, what r they doing in an outdoor theme park in sunny Florida.

      There is also an opportunity to teach the children how to behave in line and how to follow rules.

    16. Jep

      I would rather you didn’t bring your breeding mistakes to the park at all. The only thing worse than dealing with more unnecessary human parasites, is dealing with the boneheaded parents who humped them into existence

    17. Bigdisfan

      Just FYI…you literally just described the “line jumping” scenario this article is about!

    18. Mindy

      No. You’re part of the problem

  3. Mike

    This is the most annoying part. Just happened to us the other day at magic kingdom. One person ran to get inline while the rest of family (5-6 people) went and got snacks and drinks then all pushed through to meet up with the one member that ran to the line. They all laughed as the ate and drank inline in front of those of us that waited as a family.

    1. Phil

      Now I know why Disney doesn’t allow guns.

    2. Carolyn

      We just returned from WDW after the New Year and this was a definite problem. In every line we were in there was at least one person or group that would pretend to be on their cell phone and walk past 50-100 people to get a better place in line. There are signs outside of each ride line but was completely ignored.

      1. mayorofrealville

        Yes! The cell phone trick! I pointed that out to my family as a guy walked up through the line, talking on his phone like “where are you? are you up past the blah blah blah. I’m coming, I’ll be there in a minute..” as he pushed by everybody. I doubt he was even on the phone, it’s just a way to push through people and not have to say “excuse me” and people are less likely to confront him because he’s “on the phone.”

    3. Tsmith

      The main problem is no one stand up to them. Well didn’t anybody besides me see A Bugs Life? There r more people around than that party of 8. Band together, send some to drag a cast member to the situation area have the crowd point of the line jumpers. That should be enough escort the jumpers out of the park.

      Once groups of people stand up. More and more people will do the same thing.

  4. Mike

    We kick out bad guest when they do the wrong things,now we need to do the same with kids,example a ride was stopped when a kid refused to seat and got off the ride making everyone get off. You need to take the parents to take responsibility. Kick them out of the park and maybe this will stop.

    1. Steph

      This has been happening for years. My husband and I will block them from passing us if it’s more than one person. One person leaving the line for the bathroom is one thing, a whole family cutting is another. Another tactic is when they send their child through the line and then the parents try to squeeze through to catch up with their child. We never let them by. Sorry, not sorry

  5. Donny

    I’ve had it happen waiting in line for food with my son. We were in a hurry to get back to the rest of our family for the Candlelight Processional. There were two kids in front of us and as we got closer, the rest of their group showed up, about 6-8 of them and the kid said to hope in with them. I spoke up and said, nope, end of the line. You’re not cutting in front of all of us.

  6. Shannon

    I will never cut in line, but I will share one experience. My 13 year old girls were in line, I went the “exit” area to get to them to just tell them where I would be. People started screaming at me. I kept saying that I wasn’t there for the ride, only to speak with my kids. I felt like they were going to assault me it was so bad. When I spoke to my girls and left, people actually threw things at me.i kept saying I just needed to check in on my kids. The people were awful. Sooo sorry folks that I didn’t approve of my young kids having a cell phone. Sarcastic of course. I think it should be ok to talk to my child without feeling like a criminal. I am sensitive (and not that young!) To enjoy certain rides, so back the heck off. Not all of us are trying to pull one over.

  7. Gus

    Cant believe this is what gets people pissed off…??? How about the Disney “experience” will never be the same again thanks to all this woke BS…???

    1. Manny

      Gus please stop blaming the social justice movement for everything. It not only shows your ignorance but has nothing to do with this discussion.

      1. Miomi

        The “fill in every available space people, every available space people!” Results in adults pushing their tiny kids ahead umpteen people. Literally under and through. Then the family pushes their way up having to reach their kid. Can’t tell you how much I hate those lines, let alone the sticky sweating strangers arm glued to mine and heavy breathing in my ear from cramming together. Disney could definitely find a more efficient way for those lines.

  8. Erica

    I’m generally the person who doesn’t think it’s worth it to say something to a line jumper (especially if it’s only a single person trying to catch up), but my daughters and I had an experience at Avatar that was too much, even for me. About 30 minutes before park closing, the four of us got into the very long line so that we could ride FOA one last time. We were in line for about 20 minutes when a single person interrupted us to pass us to catch up to another single person standing further up. About 2 minutes later, another single person did the exact same thing (and let’s just say it was obvious that they were from the same group). Then, a few minutes later, NINE other people tried to do the same. I had had enough, and I told them there was no way. That the two people who had already passed (and the ONE person who had been in the line for the entire time) could stand where they were and that when we and the family waiting behind us (who we’d been talking to) passed them, they’d all be together. They tried to argue with us, but I wouldn’t budge and in the end, they stayed behind us and their friends had to wait for them. They had still passed at least 20 minutes worth of people, but I felt like I needed to take a stand and I’m glad I did. Not only did the family behind us thank me, but so did several of the people in front of us. Honestly, I think most people wanted to say something to the family, they just hadn’t. It’s unfortunate how entitled some people behave when we’ve all paid to be there.

  9. GatorJaB

    Disney has a policy that you can not save a place in line or line jump. It’s in their policies section in their app.

    I will ALWAYS say something. Don’t like it go get a cm and I will show it to all of them.

    1. We took our granddaughters to Walt Disney World.About a half a dozen of a family behind us tried to force their way thru the line.We watched them pushing every chance they got to get ahead of people that were behind us.Then they tried to push in front of us they were told to stop by my husband.They acted like what do you mean?If they were not stoped they would have pushed their way to the front of the line.

  10. WLinMT

    A few years ago at Finding Nemo, a very large man and his wife and 4 kids came shoving through the line and anytime someone said something to him, he’d say something along the lines of “you shut your f-cking mouth or I’ll shut it for you.” One woman tried blocking his path and he told her he was getting through that line and she could let him or she could wake up in the hospital. He finally got up to the grandma who was already in line and she laughed about it. I’ve always wondered how many of his kids ended up being the bullies their dad was teaching them to be. We got out of line and went to California Adventure.

    1. I would have contacted park security and the cops. Then filed charges on that monster for terroristic threats. What he said to you, is enough for him to go to jail. Obviously, this man is violent and probably abuses his family.

  11. That makes more reason why I don’t want to go to WDW.

  12. Nat

    Everyone who’s upset need to contact Disney and complain so they can increase measures and put in penalties .

  13. Liz

    Online for Soarin a large group from Brazil tried to get ahead of us. My mom was in a wheelchair and the family in front of us had two people on scooters. My family and the other family got together and blocked anyone from going forward us. The group repeatedly tried to squeeze through.

    1. Bxmamipr712

      Omg those are the absolute worst! The Brazilian groups do this at EVERY ride! And it is always like 20 people minimum cutting! They are so classless and rude, but think that they are better than everyone. I always block them. Then they yell, scream, clap etc. I absolutely hate those obnoxious groups.

  14. Mike

    There are advantages to being tall, solidly built, and with a big beard that makes me look pretty intimidating. I’ve scared any number of people into waiting their turn by simply blocking the queue, turning to face then, and saying, “Your friends are welcome to move back to meet you. I suggest you text them and tell them that.” Then not letting them pass me.

    I’ve also become pretty adept at getting the attention of cast members when people are breaking park rules. Our son works at WDW and he does this all the time when he’s with us in the parks. You don’t let a group past you until you’re in sight of a cast member, then you get the cast member’s attention and give the rude people the chance to push past you while you loudly object. I’ve gotten quite a few people kicked out of line this way. It only works when you’re near a cast member, obviously, but it’s fun to do!

  15. Nicole

    It has gotten so common now for one person to stand in line for 30 minutes, then the rest of their family hops in line to wait 15 minutes.

    It’s usually like 6 to 10 people and they often act like they don’t speak or understand English. I’m sorry if my kids had to wait when they were 18 months old, they can too.

    I also say if you need to use the restroom, do so before entering the line. If you need to get out of line to use the restroom, then you lose your spot like everyone else. I have had to get out of line because a little bladder couldn’t wait – we lost our spot and waited in the line all over again. That’s called life.

    1. Mary

      Totally disagree with you on that. Go to the bathroom before? Not if you didn’t have to go? Not all bladders are on schedule! I person hurts no one, not letting them back with their party makes you the rude person.

  16. Ron Casallas

    They should be kicked out the park and banned for a year since the time of the offense. 2nd offense banned permanent. No exception.

  17. JayC

    Years ago a rude woman with a few young children and a fake “Make A Wish” badge pushed their way to the front of the line. No “excuse me” just shoving people in the back. I was shocked and I didn’t get a chance to say anything to her as they pushed past, but I complained to the cast member at the head of the line. He shrugged. After the ride I gave her a piece of my mind but it was no use. She was trying to abuse the system and she wasn’t going to change. But it sure made an impact on me! Now I do stand up and block people trying to pass to join family and friends like this -unless it is obviously mom with little kid potty issue, I’ve been there. I’ve gotten old enough now, I don’t care what others think of me if I tell them to stop being rude and wait their turn!

  18. Fran

    I had a lady that pushed past with a party of 7- I’m from New York, I was tired it was a long day and my daughter and I had been waiting patiently- I said something to her. She put her hands on my daughter- my daughter said don’t touch me. She’s lucky I didn’t deck her. I said something to the CM but the cast member did nothing….I’m now waiting for no reservations to get into park so I can renew my pass –

    1. Disney needs to retrain their cast members. Obviously, they aren’t doing their job when they see line jumpers shoving past people, and they do nothing about it. Or, if they simply shrug off your reports of this behavior. A suggestion: if you report something to a cast member, look for their name right away, so if they refuse to solve the problem, you can turn them in. This might sound a little harsh, but they are being paid to do their job. They should do it!!!

      1. Kiri ly

        Yea, I had a situation on flight of passage, these 2 people pushed past my group but I wouldn’t let them past me, so they were between me and my group. My group just shrugged. When I got to the front they made me wait while this other group went ahead of me. Though they were seen pushing ahead of my group. Annoying

      2. Donna

        The problem is often when CM do something or say something they are risking their own safety. They are trained to de-escalate situations. Don’t argue, the guest is always right. And lately they have to be even more careful because some people have decided that they can do anything they want at any time and “screw the rest of you, I come first.” So the Cast members don’t want to end up getting the “stuffing” beaten out of them because they stopped a a line jumper. There have been reports of cast members getting punched, spit on, and beaten because they spoke to someone breaking the rules.

    We had an instance at Expedition Everest , we needed to do rider switch. We had got into the line which was well behind where the CM is at the entrance to where the line usually starts , we asked to do rider switch and were told to spilt our party , a few who were not switching to continue on in the line ( since we had already been waiting ) and the ones who would be switching to go across the way to where an umbrella was to set up rider switch and that they would allow us to join the rest of our party in the standby line . I felt so uncomfortable pushing my way back to our party even though we had CMs permission and we knew we didn’t do anything wrong . I have no idea how people can do that ride after ride without feeling bad. This also opened my eyes to not always automatically assume that people who do this are rude people . My parents even asked if they could just wait where we left them ( we just didn’t want to have to go all the way back to where we had started again ) and we were told no you have to keep moving we will allow them to catch up to you 🤷🏻‍♀️

  21. Amanda gomez

    I personally don’t like when someone does it but I usually let it surpass when it’s one person. I have a rather large family myself and can understand leaving your stroller or something with one person catching up to to a group. Ok. No biggie.
    We were in Disneyland this past December kind you we purchased the genie pass for my family. There was a rather large party and when you are scanning your passes there are 2 sides we were on one and the other party on the other. 2 of their people had finished and got in like while the other 9 were still scanning we were done and went behind their 2 that finished. 2 more parties were behind us and then it was the rest of their group of 9. So sure enough the group of 2 in front of us (mom and daughter) called the other 9 people up. I did say aloud it would be common courtesy for the 2 to join their group. My fiancé was just like let it go but I was pretty mad.

  22. Mike B

    At Six flags Magic Mountain in California there are signs at each ride saying “any line hopping or cutting will result in being kicked out of the park, without a refund” its seems to work quite well…DISNEY IS A BUNCH OF WUSSES….ITS A REAL PROBLEM. I WAS JUST THERE LAST WEEK….AMAZING HOW MANY PEOPLE CAU IN LINE WITH FOOD AND DRINKS …..

  23. Dogman

    Disney is now a battleground, not the happiest place on Earth. I’m sorry Walt.

  24. Danie

    We are WDW veterans and just went to DL for the first time this month. Line jumping was much worse there than anything at WDW. And CMs were helping them.

    1. Those cast members that help people line jump, should be FIRED immediately.

  25. Bxmamipr712

    I hate the entitled, classless people who think they are better than everyone, and do this. I won’t let people through period, and I dare them to do something. If you can’t wait in line like EVERYONE else, don’t come. The CMs should do their job, but they don’t. Disney will literally hire anyone now.

  26. Darryl

    Very Simple. If you do not like to wait and deal with others behavior, this may not be the place you want to go.

  27. CP57

    I am handicapped and I need to use my mobility scooter to get around, my husband is my care giver. Well, we were with our 2 friends and their 2 children and I had to get our of line BC I had to use the rest room and of course my husband had to come with me. It was embarrassing enough to find a way to get out of line in of itself but when we returned I had fully expectedthat we were now going to have to be at the back of the line (again, I have to use my mobility scooter and those waiting lines are of course not very wide) we just waved at our friends and said see you at the end…
    I have to say that those people behind us in the line that saw that we were back and at the end of the line, were GENEROUS and VERY helpful. Some of them even said to come back up and then told those behind them that we were there but had to get out of line. THANKFULLY most of the people cleared a way for us to get back to our group. Not everyone is a line jumper and to this day am very HUMBLED by their KINDNESS to let us meet back up with our party….

  28. iW399

    Line jumpers are a big problem at Disney parks, my wife and I have annual passes and have witnessed multiple line jumping strategies, the most irritating is when a group of people want to pass through the line to meet with a “family member” that’s not there, recently 3/4 of the way through the pirates of the Caribbean q line one woman said she was holding a spot for 7 other guests, I told her to move over and wait for her party rather then hold line up, she proceeded to leave the line ,Disney has to get a grip on this,

  29. AlBlr

    I went to Disney World all my life. From 1982 to 2017, our family went 30 plus times and stayed for 5 or 6 days. When we left in December 2017, I said don’t think I will be back. The specialness of Disney is gone. The parks are too crowded every day and the hotels are ridiculously expensive. I looked at a Boardwalk room for 3 people last October and it was $699 a night. How can all of you people let Disney take your money and charge you $15 for a fast food combo. Here’s the deal it is not enough park. They kept building hotels because they are greedy. They should have built another theme park by now to celebrate 50 years but instead they just keep overstuffing the 4 they have and treating people like cattle. If people don’t stop going, just so they can post on Instagram look what my family did…it will not change. Everyone stop the insanity, it’s a 3 to 5 minute ride, spend your money on something that matters.

  30. DebFL

    Line jumpers: “one person from a large group pushes ahead and then the entire group cuts in line to catch up, rather than the one person coming back to be with their party.”

    Seen it many times, usually it’s a smaller kid, around 7 or 8, then 6 or more older kids wanting to catch up. Nope. Usually there are ropes or chains between line segments. Grab one on either side with a Nope, call them back, you’re not going any further. People around you hear this and all chime in with a “yeah, back of the line!” The one sent forward almost always comes back to be with their group.

    You have to be aware of what’s going on behind you, nip that poopie in the bud.

    1. JayC

      High Five, DebFL! That’s what I’m talking about!!! Thanks for the laugh (nipping poopie in the bud, LOL)

  31. Mike

    Not a cutting in line but a few years back when they had fastpass, the CM would only admit the fastpass people in line. What was supposed to be a 30 minute wait ended up being 90 minutes.

  32. Rick

    One word: Brazilians

  33. Lisa

    The worst line jumping my family and I had happen to us was during the time where an influx of Brazilian tour groups happens. A group of twenty plus chanting, dancing Brazilians shoved their way past us- nearly knocking down my young son. If my husband had not been holding his hand, he would have been on the ground! Granted, this was some years back, since my son is now in his early thirties(and well able to give as good as he gets!), we taught both of our sons to be conscious of others and courteous when moving in line. What happens with others who stampede by….I don’t know, but it seems to have gotten according to everything I have been reading! Respect, people!!

  34. Julian H

    Isn’t Genie Plus the same thing as queue jumping? We all paid on the gate, but if you pay again for the same thing then DISNEY lets you queue jump over everyone else.

    Crazy, unfair and quite frankly ridiculous. Those that buy must have more money than sense.

  35. Rob Sarraille

    I was in the single rider line for Rock n Roller Coaster and two teens were about 5 or 6 spots behind me. I saw them talking like they were planning something. Next thing, they crossed the railing into the fast pass line and just laughed as they kept moving forward. I was fuming, but, karma took hold. The CM saw them and waited for them to get to the front of the line, then made them go to the back of the single rider line. We were all laughing at them as they made the walk of shame. Sharp CM in my mind.

  36. James Locke

    There were 20 Brazilians in front of me in the fast pass line. I wasn’t paying attention until a man can up to me to tell them to move. Their was no one in front of us for a least 70 feet in our line. Everyone in stand by lane where going in instead of us.

  37. Patricia Staton

    Line jumping has been going on for years at Disney World. One year when my daughter was 7 y/o we encountered large groups that moved through the parks with a leader holding a small flag from maybe from their native country. They moved in a tight line and did not hesitate to cut off other people as they moved forward. We’re talking about groups of at least 20 or more of both adults and older children. Later as the day progressed smaller groups 10-15 would try the line cutting technique and were fairly successful. At some point they tried it with me. By then my patience were thinning so I told the group that line cutting was not allowed at the park. The teen replied, “no speak english”. I smiled and said “then let me say it in your language”. No I did not know what language was his, maybe Spanish which I did not speak. I explained in my native language that if I reported them for line cutting to the attendant at the front for continuous line jumping that they would be asked to leave and then used a universal term ” without a refund of your money”. The line holder immediately came back to his group and nothing else was said except from me. “Well bless your hearts.

      Addition to my first comment, that 7 y/o is now 33.

    We were just at Disneyland at the start of December. My goodness, the line jumping is getting so bad! I agree with the comments that people are posting that they need to kick people out of the park(s) for doing it. You enter the line as a group and stay as the group. I get it that one person may have to leave the line for a bit to use the restroom or something. I’m ok with letting one person past me to get back with their group. But when huge groups of people are pushing past to catch up with their “one” other person in line, that’s line jumping and should not be tolerated. I would be ok if they suspended their annual passes out magic keys for a while too.

    Whatever your excuse is for not being in line with your group, or needing to leave the line and return, whether in a scooter or on foot, is NOT good enough. Waiting in lines is the worst part of going to the parks, and it only makes it worse to have someone cut past you with their little excuse that they just need to catch up with their group. The solid rule for everyone needs to be: get in and stay in line with your group or ride separately from them. Period. It’s that simple.

    When are people going to get over Disney? It’s hell on Earth. People are complete self centered jerks and the crowds are horrible! Stop going so you can stop complaining!

    Waiting in a long line for a restroom. A lady in a chair jumped to the front. It made me angry. I understand that there is a special stall for her to use, and rightfully so, but it is there when her turn in line comes.
    Just because she is in a chair does not mean she has to “go” any worse than anyone else in line!

    The first time I took my only child to Disney was when she was 2. Just her and I. I was going through a divorce with her dad and as a newly single mom with a crappy paying job, it was something I wanted to prove to myself that I can do things like this for my daughter. We ended up going yearly for about 10 years after that- it was always our thing. But I noticed it since the first trip-giant families with 1 person in line and the other 20 showing up infront of us. I always felt a bit of frustration because we werent a football team. My 2 year old waited patiently, why couldnt everyone else? We were always getting shoved around. We quit going after 10 years of this, and the last time we ended up only on 2 rides all day. Rude hicks.

    If everyone did what g
    GREA says she does, which is to wait in line for a couple of hours and then call her whole family to the front of the line once she reaches it, the real line would be 5 times as long as it appeared because there would be 5 times the number of people waiting at the restaurants and in the shade as there would be in line, that would make the wait time impossible to predict and would ruin the experience for everyone but the families of people who don’t care about the rules like GREA.

    The rules are there for a reason and no one is allowed to break them. The people who do break them are actually guilty of a form of bullying, whether they realize it or not. They are intentionally pushing other people out of their way for their own convenience and without any concern about those other people.

    There should be a policy in place where they use the magic bands to determine who jumped the line, and then once they determine it they put those people out of the park for the rest of the day, that is after the first offense. If they do it twice in one season they should be banned for the season, and if they do it again the next season they should be banned for life. Disney has plenty of customers and they will never miss a handful of line jumpers… Most of whom are probably from New York.

      Agree with what you’ve said here! Plus…if everyone let their families stay back only to cut in line later, those wait times at ride entries would be meaningless!

    Sounds like alot of entitled selfish adults crying about nothing. Why would this warrant getting kicked out of the parks?
    Family haters, little kid haters. Geez
    Disneyland is a family place meant for kids.
    Also I am tired of people treating teens as adults and giving them a hard time.
    I have been to Disneyland pregnant, nursing, with toddlers, babies ect.
    If a kid has to use the restroom an adult has to take them so 2 people would be reentering the line.
    One time had a 4 yo nephew pee on a fake tree inside que without saying anything to me because didn’t want to lose place in line because it was just me and him so no one to save place in line.
    Also had to nurse in line because it was just me with my baby and already waited 30+ minutes and didn’t want to get back in line and wait all over again for the same ride. Everybody in line looking at the sky and was so uncomfortable but its fair right.
    I agree with a warning system with being sent to back of line for line cutting family for more than 2 people.
    I agree with keeping kids out of line as much as possible not just my kids but others.
    All rides should have virtual que for families with little kids or built in benches for adults to sit in line. Seriously theme park lines are not really accommodating
    A family lounge for kids to wait for parent swap.
    genie plus is already line cutting but as a society that is okay for $$ just let me bend over backwards for people with money but block a family cutting the regular line sure hope you sleep better at night..
    People are getting meanier and crabbier everyday but expect disneyland to make them happy..
    Also coment about wanting a handicap wheelchair lady to wait for the 1 stall that is big enough for her chair to open up is ridiculous sometime i have baby in stroller and have to wait for that stall and I have to wait 2 times as long to catch it open or it is the only stall with a diaper change station in it. Other people should not use because it is open it is meant for disabled people and stroller/diaper changing people.
    Same people when I am super pregnant and don’t want to use common descensy to let me go first to pee and want me to wait in line and thats fair to them. Sure 👍

      Just because you let a guy bust inside you does not mean anyone needs to let you do anything because you decided to have a baby and go to Disney. That’s your problem, maybe don’t go until your kid is old enough to wait in line properly like every other kid and person.

      You’re so entitled it’s hilarious

    I agree that line jumping is not cool, but also wish people would be more aware of the line in general. We were just at Disney Land and waited in line for the Incredicoaster for TWO HOURS. By hour 1.5, my son (9 and autistic) had to go to the bathroom. Like, emergency bathroom need. My husband stayed in line while I rushed him to the bathroom. When we came back to the line, the group behind us started yelling at us for cutting the line. The line had hardly moved at all between us leaving and coming back, my husband was still there, and we had already waited in line for 1.5 hours, so they had presumably SEEN us prior to us leaving and coming back. Yikes to the whole situation.

    I have no problem with someone already in line with their party jumping out to use the restroom. It happens to the best of us! But other than that scenario, Disney should have a line policy similar to their dining reservation seating policy, which is not to seat groups until everyone in their party is present. We were once in a 2 hour line for Mine Train, and as we were walking there a young boy went running by us and got in line by himself. After about 15 minutes his “party” came trickling in, all 15 of them. We counted! Not all came at once. Groups of 2 and 3 would come every couple of minutes. It was egregious and infuriating! A few of us said something, but with no cast members anywhere in sight, there was little we could do about it. It’s unfortunate people like this can’t be caught and shipped out the exit just before boarding the ride!

    Yeah no. Your kids aren’t coming past me and my kids to join you. Someone behind me may allow your kids to join you.BEHIND me.

    Happens all the time yet Disney workers do nothing about it. I stood in a 70 minute wait line for Snow White ride for it to be pushed back to 3 hours cause family members were calling each other when they were close to getting on the ride making people wait longer. That staff told us they can’t do anything about it.
