Andrew Rich, down at MousePlanet Global Headquarters told you what you may have missed on the MousePlanet site last week if you're not visiting regularly.

Listener Feedback

Once again, our Theme Park Etiquette episode inspired all feedback on today's show.

Tiffany A. appreciated the show, but felt that anybody listening to it already follow the guidelines. She thinks that the people who really need to learn proper etiquette probably won't ever hear it.

Joey in Tucson called the feedback line to say that his personal pet peeves at Disneyland are flash photography in Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion, and when people scream along with the recorded scream at the Haunted Mansion and keep screaming even when lights come back on.

Stuart Sternberg enjoyed the show and wanted to add his two pet peeves: waiting on line and then having many more people in front of you because someone was holding their place while they were at another attraction, and people stopping and sitting in the middle of a row in theater attractions. He also noted that he had never seen anyone being disrespectful to a cast member nor had he ever encontered an obnoxious cast member.

Debbie loved the story, and recommended adding "Please change your baby's diaper in the restroom, not outside on a bench, chair, etc."

G7 (moderator of the wonderful Horizons Tribute group over on Yahoo Groups) notes that we missed a huge one under "Attraction etiquette": know how many are in your party before you get to the loader, and don't lie to the loader. He listed the many consequences of messing up on this one. On a side note, Mark is thrilled to have G7 as a listener.

Mike Drake agrees competely on the list and wanted to add to the Attraction Etiquette section: "Do not recite the voiceovers or soundtracks on an attraction it ruins the experience for everyone else."

Roxanne Kliebert thinks that the list should be put into every room in Resorts on grounds and that it should be put where the maps are located in front of each park, or better yet, put on the back of the map. Wow, thanks for the compliment!
