“Atrocious” Guest Behavior at Disney World—Guest Mocks Make-A-Wish Visitors

In truly shocking news, Walt Disney World Guest behavior reached a new low when a mother made snide comments about a Make-A-Wish visitor.

Walt Disney World Resort may have earned the moniker of “The Most Magical Place on Earth,” but it is one that is up to Cast Members, Guests, and of course, the Walt Disney Company to hold up. Unfortunately, things can often go awry at the Disney Resort, with rides at a Disney Park facing major breakdowns or, as is the case of this story, a Theme Park Guest behaving in an unacceptable manner.

While unacceptable, it’s one thing to pick fights with Cast Members or fellow Guests who are there in the same capacity as you are, but recently, in case you thought Guest behavior couldn’t get any worse, one mother questioned the “special privileges” the Make-A-Wish visitors were receiving, even going so far as to say she wished her “kid was dying.”

This shocking incident came to light when Reddit user u/IAmNotYourMouse prompted a discussion of “Worst Guest Behavior” on the social media platform.

u/DVSGhost shared the story:

The worst guest behavior ever was a mom at Frozen. A Make A Wish family was brought to the front of the line as per usual. And this one mom exclaims with all of the attitude: “Wow, I wish my kid was dying so I could skip lines too” The entire queue stopped talking to stare at her, the husband looked at her disgusted and just left her there while the loader ushered her to the exit.

It is unsurprising that Disney is beginning to take more decisive action when it comes to these kinds of situations. As the Guest noted, the mother was ushered away to the exit; Disney has recently even officially addressed Guest behavior with an update to the Walt Disney World Resort. It should go without saying that being courteous of fellow Guests is a must, and making these kinds of unacceptable comments about those from the Make-A-Wish foundation is highly discouraged.
