A group of Disney Guests took their shoes off and rubbed their feet all over the floor and seats of an attraction in a Disney Park.
There have been more than enough counts of Disney Guests crossing the line recently. No matter which Theme Park — the Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Paris, or the Disneyland Resort — some visitors appear to have lost all sense of social decorum and climb attractions, enter restricted areas and conduct themselves in an inappropriate manner in public.
The incident happened at the Tiki Room in Disneyland Park. Reddit user, u/WhiteIsaacHayes took to the platform to ask “What’s wrong with people?” The user detailed what he and his girlfriend saw,
“We saw a group of people in their 30s-40s taking off their sandals and rubbing their feet all over the ground, and another woman who decided to sit on the back rest of one of the seats, with her feet all over the seat cushions.”

The thread was filled with users commiserating and chiming in with how they deal with Guests who behave similarly in the Disney Parks:
“I love when my kid tries to do the same thing (she’s 2) because kids try to imitate everything. Then I loudly say “oh sweetheart we don’t (insert thing here) because it’s gross/disrespectful/against the rules/[fill in the blank].” Then she always says something like “but they’re doing it.” And I loudly say “well yes THEY are doing (insert thing here) but it’s lucky for you that you have a mommy that teaches you how to act properly out in public.” Then I glare in their direction.”
This kind of behavior has been happening ever since the Disney Park opened, according to u/NuncErgoFacite:
“When the park opened, a pile of dirt from the excavations sat where the Matterhorn would be built – it was landscaped and called something like Holiday Hill. It turned into a lover’s lane where guests would make it their personal happiest place on earth. And this was the 50’s.
So, people have always been entitled, disrespectful, “mind your own business” type people. New generations, same lack of … everything.”
The Enchanted Tiki Room has served as a perfect stop between attractions for Guests for years now. Per the website it’s a place where Guests can:
“Take [their] seat in an air-conditioned ceremonial house in the heart of Polynesia. As the lights dim, 4 talking macaws spring to life. Before long, the chorus of crooning birds is joined by an enchanting cast of over 225 choreographed Audio-Animatronics performers.”
