Welcome, Disney enthusiasts! Everyone knows a trip to the happiest place in the world is a dream come true. But let’s face it; there are some things even the most die-hard fans of Disney will not do. Here is a list of things an online Disney Parks community absolutely refuses to do in Disneyland. We’re willing to bet you draw the line on some of these, too!

1. Paying for Water

Running around the park trying to take every ride possible is hectic and can leave you parched. Many forum users mention they would not pay for water to quench their thirst. Instead, they would opt for free tap water. Reusable cups all the way!

2. Wedding Bells

The idea of proposing in front of Cinderella’s Castle may seem like the ultimate fairytale. However, multiple people say they would not pick a place as crowded to do it. Waiting in line for rides is one thing, but staying in line to propose? A big no! Not to mention, you’d not like getting rejected in public anyway. 

3. Saying No to Nemo

While most Disney rides are amusing adventures, some can turn out to be hostage situations. You may be tempted to find Nemo, but many forum users advise against it. One person shares how Nemo’s Voyage is the ride that showed them the true meaning of claustrophobia. 

4. Filming on Rides

Forget “Instagram, or it didn’t happen?” How about, “I had the time of my life, and that’s all that matters!” Forum users say they would never film on rides but instead enjoy them while fully present. The trip cost a fortune, so why waste the opportunity to enjoy the experience?  

5. Not Keeping Heaven Clean

It’s no secret that Disneyland is a magical place, but did you know even the dustbins are enchanted? Okay, maybe not, but something about it captivates people. Many users say they refuse to throw trash elsewhere. That should be a no-brainer, but unfortunately, in many places, that’s not the norm. It is no wonder that despite having a massive influx of visitors, the place remains immaculate.

6. Prolonged Line-Ups

Individuals voice that waiting hours in line just for a meet and greet is not worth it. One person in particular shares their tiresome experience of waiting two hours to meet Captain Rex, only to be met with Ezra and Sabine. Ouch! Use this time to enjoy the rest of what the park has to offer. After all, the real magic lies in making memories with your loved ones.

7. Visiting on a Holiday

Being crammed wall to wall is not fun. This is why many decline to visit during the holiday season. Stick to the off-season and enjoy a roomier experience.

8. Don’t Think About Tomorrow

Many Disney fanatics in the thread agree they want to exist in the present moment and not worry about their troubles. You didn’t buy tickets and travel a long way to stress about the next day; let go of the worries and live in the moment.

9. Ride the Matterhorn

Modeled after a mountain in the Alps, this ride is full of thrill and excitement. However, according to many, it is the “reverse chiropractor.” If you can’t show some spine, you better avoid this ride.

10. Yell at a Disney Character

While politeness may seem obvious, how people get rude to the workers is a shock. Multiple users mention while they may shout with joy on rides, they would never yell at the workers. It is just not the Disney way, and I agree!
