|No More Sticks!|
Last year while in line at one of the rides in Disneyland I noticed a woman with her stick. Well, I did not want the ride shut down because she had to take pictures of herself and also they are not supposed to be in the park. So I let the cast member know and the woman was escorted to the front of the park to get rid of the stick because she did not want to turn it over to the cast member. She thought she should be the exception to the rule.
Disney has notices everywhere stating that the sticks are not allowed in the parks. It is posted before you enter the check point but some people seem to think rules to not apply to them and find a way to sneak them in. I am not sure how they do it since security is so high but sometimes they get missed.
Safety measures at Disneyland are high, they are all about safety and so the attractions are extremely sensitive to anything that might be unsafe. People take these stupid sticks in, extend them and the sensors on the ride think someone is trying to get out so the ride shuts down. Depending on the ride and issue it can be down for hours. This means maintenance has to work on the issue and it also ruins the experience for the guests on the attraction and prevents others from enjoying it too. I think people who do that should be banned from the park for good.
Still with all of the notices some people still don't get it, they somehow sneak them in. Well, I am not going to allow it and I report them. I reported one just this past June when it was being used right in front of the DL Railroad area. The man was escorted out of the park most likely to get rid of the thing.
When we were at check point one person had a stick and the security guard told him he had three options, one was to take it to his room, the other was to take it to his car and the last was to never see it again. I am not sure what the man decided but was glad those were the options. The man did ask if he could leave it at the safety check area but they told him they can't keep stuff for people. I mean really, come on folks those folks are not there to babysit the crap you are not supposed to bring with you anyhow.
The entire selfie stick thing has really disgusted me actually. People are rude with them and they do hit others with them. I am glad Disney no longer allows them in the parks even though I didn't know they existed until I heard of the ban. I wonder what it will take for people to finally get it.
