7 Things You Should Never Do When Standing In Line At Disney Parks - #1

Height

#1 Getting Angry Over Height Requirements

This may not occur throughout the line, but it does take place at the very start of it. Cast members are required to check heights at the beginning and sometimes at the end of each ride. Many parents are thrilled when they visit the parks and their children are tall enough to ride some rides, but every now and again there is that one family that is so anxious for their child to ride something and their hopes come crashing down when they hear those magic words: “I’m sorry, your child isn’t tall enough to ride this”. I have seen parents fuming and yelling at the top of their lungs because their kids falls a hair short of reaching the requirements. When parents do this they are modeling behavior for their children so then the kids typically start to cry. It is a very unpleasant and uncomfortable scenario to watch as a bystander. You can’t help but feel sorry for the cast member being yelled at for just following the rules of his/her job, and then feeling sorry for the parents that just had their hopes set too high. Before having a panic attack, just tell your little one that they will enjoy it next time and get them excited for another attraction that you are sure they can be a part of. Understand that safety precautions have to take place and there are others around you trying to enjoy their vacation as well.
