Top 10 Reasons Why Disney World Is Not the Happiest Place On Earth

The Top Ten

1 There's always a kid whining or crying

Not on Disney property, but when we went to Disney World, my family saw a dad spanking his toddler son and making him cry at the Orlando airport.

Probably because that kid is hot and tired and wants to go home.

Just ignore him, there are millions of other people

There is always some whining, I notice every time.

2 Half the people don't look happy

I've actually met a couple of adults who work at Disney and they're doing fine, though personally I believe that Disney has been downhill since 2012 or at least after the release of Wreck-It-Ralph (technically made by Pixar). Although Pixar and Marvel are still good.

I mean why is it that Disney isn't doing much better, yet they take away good rides and replace them with crap, and people aren't happy.
Seriously, Disney hasn't been getting much better lately.

Don't except people to look happy all the time

3 Overpriced items

We went to Disney World in 2006 and I still have a receipt/bill from the trip. According to the receipt/bill it was almost $100 for dinner for 4 people at Hollywood and Vine at Hollywood Studios (it was called MGM Studios back in 2006). I'm pretty sure the price has increased by now...

I agree, it costs $10 for a pizza slice, $15 for a mug, $20 for a hat, $20 for a pen, $25 for a Mickey/Minnie plush toy, $40 for a shirt and $40 to Eat at a buffet.
It's the same thing with Disneyland.

Examples: $20 for a pen (just because it's shaped like Mickey, Donald, I don't know). $25 for a Mickey plush. $40 for a shirt. $40 to EAT at an Epcot buffet.

That's typical Disney for you. It's no different at Disneyland. A pizza SLICE is $10.

4 It's too crowded

Doesn't matter when you go, whether it's during holidays or normal school days.
That's what you get.

I went to Disneyland one year and had to wait forever to get on Luigi's flying tires.

I agree, it's best to go either in February, March or October.

I had to wait for 1 hour 15 minutes just for 1 ride!

5 Some people are rude

Not to mention Disney's greedy

On EVERY place there are rude people

6 Most of the new rides are boring now

Agree. Lots of rides suck now, there are not very many good ones now, and Disney's just throwing them all away.

That sucks.
It was great that I went to Disney World the 2nd time, and still remember the boring rides now.

Ehh, they haven't changed much

7 The people stink there

The characters are the worst experience, since they're sweating inside their costumes like crazy.
They're dehydrated in almost no time.
The people at Toy Story Land are good examples there too since it's shadeless.

It's all because of the food and the sweat, we can't help it, but we get hungry and it's hot a lot of times.

This is the least legit reason

Yeah, cause they sweat

8 It's not everything you hope for

There's a lot of stuff there, though I agree there's not a lot of good stuff anymore.

Disney is good, but not perfect

9 It's gone downhill

Yeah, most of the good rides have closed down and been replaced with bad cashgrabs. They closed down Maelstrom and replaced it with crappy Frozen, they took away Alien Encounter and replaced it with Stitch's Great Escape(the worst attraction), they even took away Mickey's Toontown Fair, and they're closing DisneyQuest and Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba, Disney has invaded itself with Frozen.
They even took away other things like the magic hat in Hollywood Studios and the wand on Epcot's Spaceship Earth, and they closed down some fast food restaurants like McDonalds, and it's just crap.
They even took away Mickey's Electric Parade and it's just desolate without it.
The new downtown Disney Springs looks awful, it's more like a crappy outdoor shopping mall you'd find in LA, and added prices for PARKING! yet they downgraded the iconic, yet colorful Planet Hollywood into a crappy place people call an observatory and looks barely different from a normal sports restaurant, yet there, ...more

I agree with you all, Disney takes away the good stuff, and they're replacing it with garbage.
I would not want to go there anymore if they destroy it completely.

Dreamfinder come back!

10 They took away the magic hat at Hollywood Studios

The Contenders

11 It's too expensive

I am able to go every year or more, I am only 12 and I have gone to Disney more than 30 times

It’s getting more expensive every year, so that Disney would prevent overcapacity and even shorten the lines.

Disney should be cheaper

Well if it were cheaper then it would be more crowded as more would have access to it.

12 People have died

This is true. But many people died because they had health problems that were aggravated by the rides, yet therefore they could die any moment even just from walking or when they're at home.

Few deaths were from other issues, like the time a gator ate a 2 year old child.

Just a reminder if you have heath problems, don't do much in your life, just stay and rest for your life for the sake of a comfortable destiny.
That's why they have those warning signs for riders.

People have died in every popular place. Also people died on rides because they have a disease in the past that makes them not able to go on fast roller coasters. Also that gator that killed a child, it happens everywhere where there are gators if you don't be careful.

Well, everybody made a big deal about the gator because it was at Disney World and the victim was a 2 year old boy.

This is especially true and important, considering that the rides break down, and in some cases, go into accidents, and people die from them. Also, death took place from animal attacks, like that gator that killed a child.

Yeah, but mostly due to medical reasons

13 The lines, lines, lines

Yeah like last summer my stepsister wanted to go to Disney World for a day so my stepdad, mom, and I were stuck going too. My mom and I went off to Epcot and for one of the rides the line was so long, the experience of the park overall was okay, but the lines were so long. Like you could easily get into Disney's Fastrack program or whatever it was called for free and without a ticket, but my mom and I didn't know that at the time, so the unfair advantage was that the security people let in like at least 50 FastTrack people in at a time while they only let in like 8 people from the regular line. All in all not fair.

The line for Slinky Dog Dash peaked at 7 HOURS on opening day, and most of it was outside with no shade and very little conditioning.
Makes the Flight of Passage line seem fun.
The worst line at Disney World.

If your in Magic Kingom, don't waste your time on Peter Pan's Flight unless you get a fasttrack thing or youll be spending more than 2 hours in long lines.

Sometimes, there is a four-hour line to get on a ride

14 People walk too slow

Walk like...Sonic?

Totally agree

"TO AGGRESSIVELY PUSH THEM! 😠😠😠" but what if they have a broken leg? Would you push them to get another broken body part? I wouldn't if I were you


15 It is way overpriced

A water bottle will cost you 3 million dollars
IT sucks COMPLETE ANUS and is a waste of money you could use.

Ever heard of courtesy water, ITS FREE because Walt Disney distilled the idea of paying for water

16 People make you uncomfortable by touching and pushing you

The guests are the worst part of the experience. Once got pushed and spit on by some foreign tourists. Lots of rude people, and very very few guests care to help or apologize.

I haven't been to Disney World since I was 5 but I do remember a huge dude pushing me over. He was so rude and he just kept walking..

It's always happening to me I hate those kind of people

Who cares? There's so many people and we can't help that.

17 It's nasty there

So much rotten food, and so much sweat and dead ashes.

18 Good rides are closing

Well Good thing they're making Toy Story Land, but that means the Buzz Lightyear ride will be moved from Magic Kingdom to Toy Story Land, so many people who want to go on that ride will have to wait another day or spend hundreds of dollars to go to Toy Story Land, in which they won't have much left in their pocket to go, and besides the ride is pretty outdated.

They closed down Great Movie Ride and they're replacing it with some likely crappy Mickey ride, which would mean Mickey will likely become the most hated and betray not only Mickey and his friends, but Walt Disney himself.

They closed down Ellen's Energy Adventure and the Great Movie Ride! Disney just ruined everything. They want cash.

Not only Disney wants money, they just wanna make the place for babies now! Alike Michael Eisner, Bob Iger was a horrible CEO of Disney!

19 Too much Frozen

Frozen is just too overrated, it's fair, but people are just taking it out of control.

I can tolerate Frozen, but not too much of it

That's Not A Reason To Hate A Theme Park, Plus Frozen's Hate On This Site Is Starting To Get Irritating

20 Some of the workers are pedophiles

Disney parks have had a few cases with workers who are pedophiles.

Especially the ones that're wearing pixar characters costumes.

Here comes Pedoo Bear!

21 Not very many thrill rides

Because Disney is a place for families, and Walt Disney when he was alive didn't envision anything scary or intense for people.
He wanted the place to be for everyone of all ages.
Now if you're looking for places that rely more on thrills, there's Universal or Busch Gardens, better yet, Six Flags parks or Cedar Point.

Only thrill rides are Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain Railroad, Test Track, Expedition Everest, Rock N' Roller Coaster, and Tower of Terror.

I may have missed one or two.

You know a lot of people go to Disney World, and there are not enough thrill rides for all those people who want to go on them.

I actually like this. Thrill rides scare the crap out of me

22 All of the suicides and urban legends

These ruined Disney for me, to be honest.

Heck yeah! -shudders-

It’s kind of interesting to read the horror stories about Disney World, though

23 Because Cedar Point is happier

Also closer to Chicago and has more to older costers which is also the same for six flags great America because cede r fair and six flags might be better than Disney world.

Yeah... Cedar Point doesn't have the high prices, confusing land system and has a real BEACH, not a man made one

Vegas is the happiest place on earth (in my opinion)

And its closer to Indiana.

24 It has scary rides

Some rides actually are scary, and Disney is a place for families. The ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter was closed because it was too scary, and that was the same reason why Snow White's Scary Adventures was toned down, but still for reasons, they eventually closed it in 2012 for good.

Walt Disney didn't envision anything scary, or thrill rides, but the Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland proved them successful and became a thing for Disney property.

Plus, I don't get why Expedition Everest, Rock 'N' Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror are So popular when when they're so intense and scary? Especially for a Disney park.

Maybe the theme's attracting them.

But when a ride is so intense, or so scary, you wouldn't expect it to be so popular bc most people wouldn't be able to handle it, yet many people telling others it's too scary, a lot of people.

Walt Disney didn't want his place to be filled with fear, but with happiness.

Now for those who want ...more

I hope this is sarcasm

Believe it or not, I’m afraid to go on the roller coasters there
