It's Walt Disney World pet peeve time! Everyone gets a nice little etiquette lesson in this blog post.
You may have encountered them before. They are some of the worst folks in Walt Disney World. No, it's not the guests that step on the back of your heels when in a queue line. Nope, it's not even your fellow vacationers that don't know their butt crack is hanging out when they sit down in front of you at Festival of the Lion King. It's the people that are walking in front of you and suddenly decide that they have to look at the park map right then and there, in the middle of the walkway. You dodge them quickly in fear that your crotch could collide with the top of the 2 year old childs head.
It's not that I disapprove of guests using park maps all together. I just disapprove of some folks' poor timing. It seems that when those that irritate me choose stop, they stop in the busiest walkway during the busiest time of day... usually right at park opening. You'd think that they would look at the map while waiting in line to get in and have their route memorized.
If I could suggest anything to these guests it would be this. Keep your stampede with you at all times. If you suddenly decide to take a peek at your map, move your rears to the side of the walkway or even into a nearby shop. Take small children by the hair, errr, hands, and keep your arms, legs, and feet, inside the vehicle at all times. Thank you and have a magical day!
