Stupid People At Disney

Why Do People Keep Doing Stupid Things At Disney?

It’s becoming clear to me that I’m old. There are just some things in this world that I don’t understand. I’m not talking about the internet as a whole. I’m not quite that old. I still have all faculties and everything, most of them, so I have that going for me.

What I’m talking about is that every time I come on Disney Fanatic (shameless website plug), someone is doing something stupid at Disney World or Disneyland to get people to look at them on Tic-Toc or Instagram.

Whether that stupid thing is cutting in front of a two-year-old in line, filming in a place you’re not supposed to film, or leaving graffiti on Sleeping Beauty Castle, it just seems to be getting worse. And now I’m left to wonder, why? What about the internet or these people that continually make them do stupid things at Disney Parks?

At first, I blamed it on Covid. Perhaps people were locked down too long and forgot how to act around other human beings at Walt Disney World. But now, that’s not really an excuse. Maybe they’re getting paid for his. Is it possible that these people have so many followers that they are making millions, and I’m the sucker here? Yes, I suppose that is, in fact, possible. As I said, there are a lot of things that I don’t fully understand.

I love going to Disney Parks. I love the atmosphere. I love the food at Disney World. I love everything, Disney. If I could go there with my family and not interact with another Park goer, I would. No offense. I just don’t want to see people doing these stupid things. Save it for when I’m not around, if you don’t mind.

People Being Stupid At Disney

So now I come to you as a representative of the Disney community who happens to have a computer in front of me and a captive audience (thanks for that, by the way), and I ask you to please stop. There’s no need to harass a Disney Princess or yell at a Cast Member. There’s no reason to leave graffiti at Magic Kingdom or EPCOT. You don’t have to shave a Monkey at Animal Kingdom. You are not in the parade; get off the float.

I still don’t understand why you’re doing what you’re doing, but it needs to end. Is it the booze? That’d I understand. I’d even let you have that, but I don’t think it’s the drinking that’s getting you into this trouble.

Let’s just all go to the Happiest Place on Earth and not worry about people who aren’t even there. Live in the moment. I think I saw that on an influencer’s Instagram page. See, that’s something we can all agree on, sort of. Isn’t it enough that you get to be at Walt Disney World Resort and the rest of the world doesn’t?

Please, enjoy yourself, but just stop being stupid for other people’s enjoyment. It makes you look like the dumb one.
