    I am at BC resort currently. How people behave is quite interesting. It would be lovely if there was an etiquette guide

    No screaming in halls
    Inside low voices in hallways
    No thundering wildebeest running in resort hallways
    No conference calls on speaker phone on balconies
    No ukulele or guitar playing on balconies
    No marital spats in Public spaces
    No grabbing your kid and slamming him in a chair in the lobby for being a kid



    I get crying babies, can’t help that one of course.

    I do have a nasty migraine and hiding in my batcave room. So seeing and hearing more than I ever wanted. I give my neighbors credit, they were very quick to respond to my requests. That was nice. I think people forget how much sound carries.

    I'd add smoking OR "vaping" in the designated smoking areas ONLY.

    Best give front desk your etiquette guide. Seems reasonable to me

    But, alas, the people who would not bother to read an etiquette guide are the ones that should.

    I would add no using the security latch to prop your door open and slam against every time someone goes in/out.

    YES to all of these! Don’t even get me started on airplane etiquette....a foot long tuna fish sandwich on the plane? Really?

    Oh my that phone!!! My sis in law came with us years ago. We were on the 5th floor at AKL. DH and I waere done on the Savannah level looking at the flamingos, and we coudl hear every word of her phone conversation. This was repeated everywhere we were, in the CL lounge, the parks, everywhere. DH told me if she went again, he was out.

    OMG! My mom tried to bring a tuna sub on a flight from Baltimore to Seattle! I may have thrown a fit & forced her to eat it in the terminal...and threatened to if she ate it on the plane! (And this was in June.)

    We always request to be on the end of the wings of the buildings at values and moderates because the maids can be so loud first thing in the morning yelling back and forth to one another.

    Instead of sound machines we just use a white noise app on our phones. We never hear the hallway or outside noise.

    Also a lot of people with bad etiquette do not care if it bothers other people. They are are going to do what THEY want to do and they do not care if it bothers anyone else. Or they become openly hostile if someone says something.

    Same here! It's a godsend! And sometimes for extra effect I'll use earplugs as well. :teeth:

    How about no domestic violence incidents in the room next door that require a call to the sheriff at 5:30 am? That was a fun one on our August trip.

    Unfortunately, as with all WDW rules, the etiquette brochure would be ignored as well.

    How about Disney shouldn't run marathons that go right by guest rooms. Wasn't a fan of all the screaming and yelling before 7 am.

    Please also keep the noise to a minimum when you are in your room. We really didn't appreciate hearing someone's kids singing "It's a Small World" over and over again at the top of their lungs when we stayed at BC. This was after 11pm and we were already sleeping when this woke us up. Another time, also BC, there were two families across the hall that came back late every night. The kids were allowed to run and scream up and down the hall while the two dad's talked loudly outside of our door. Why would anyone think this is OK?

    Or the time I was at BC (what is it about BC?) and kids were playing a game by bouncing a ball in the hall against MY door, not their own. That was fun . . .

    Then there was the family at CR that was checking out at 2am, and yelling back and forth to each other outside my door about did you get this, or did you get that? I had to stick my head out of the door and remind them that people were sleeping. Duh!

    All it takes is a little consideration of your fellow travelers . . .
