At our most recent trip to Disney World in Orlando, our Disney welcome kit included the usual assortment of flyers, coupons, and brochures for all the things that help us have a great stay at “The Happiest Place on Earth.”
That welcome kit included an entire brochure, printed in 9 different languages, that simply asks you to not be a complete douchebag with your smartphone while you’re in Disney World. Actually, they’re not asking, they’ve banned the use of selfie-sticks in all their parks. Every single person who buys a ticket to Disneyland/Disney World gets this brochure.
I have of course heard of selfie-sticks, and how obnoxious they are, but I had never actually seen one in use. Unlike Disney World, Universal Studios does not ban them from their parks. And they were everywhere. And I must say that they are everything I read about and more. The people that use them are obnoxious, rude, and generally just look like they’re complete douchebags whos entire self-worth is based on their Facebook/Instagram friend count.
Imagine the millions upon millions of dollars Disney spends each year printing this brochure, just to help keep you from being a douchebag. Disney cares!
