7 Things You Should Never Do When Standing In Line At Disney Parks - #2

Rockin Roller Coaster

#2 Neglecting Parental Responsibilities

Last year I was waiting in line for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster for over an hour. I was in a good mood when I first made the line but by the time I boarded the ride I was fuming. The children in front of me (ages ranging from 5-15 years old) were running all over the place, screaming at the top of their lungs, bumping into other guests constantly, and even knocking down the rope stanchions multiple times. This lasted almost the entire time we were in line. Where were their parents? Right next to them, and deeply involved in adult conversation while their children interrupt the joy of other guests around them. It wasn’t until the party in front of them told them to please watch their children, that things cooled down a bit. I understand that Disney can be a great place to unwind and let your kids get excited about the magic, but the bottom line is, they should still be watched and taught how to behave even if they are not at home or doing their normal day to day activities. It is important to guide them and model proper behavior when waiting.
