Recently the Walt Disney World website added courtesy as a policy for guests visiting the most magical place on Earth. Now the happiest place on Earth is now getting its own policy that formalizes guest courtesy as a policy.
A new addition can now be found on the “Here’s what to know before you go” page on the Disneyland website. On this page, a new section for “Courtesy” has been added to the “Top Things You Should Know” section of the page. Previously this section included “Park Reservations,” “Health & Safety,” and also “Download the Official Disneyland App.”
In this new “Courtesy” section, it says, “We ask all who come to this happy place to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion.” This is followed by a read more option that when clicked says, “We ask all who come to this happy place to treat others with respect, kindness and compassion. To help Guests have a safe and enjoyable experience, we regularly update our Disneyland Resort rules.” The option to view Disneyland Rules is then offered.
On the Disneyland Rules page there is a section called “Guest Courtesy and Attire Policies.” One of the bullet points in this section focuses on courtesy:
Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and our Cast Members by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior, jumping lines or saving places in lines for others. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running.
In recent years, there have been more conflicts between guests and between guests and cast members in the parks that have been completely unacceptable. The courtesy policy will help keep the Disneyland Resort a safe, happy, and family friendly place for all who come.
