Have you ever been on a crowded bus or monorail leaving the parks that was standing room only? I know I have! After long day in the parks, buses, monorails, and boats carry the tired masses back to their resorts (or cars), leaving people standing and ogling the seated passengers, hoping to get a seat sooner than later.
While many people will willingly offer there seats, I’ve seen more than once people not offer common courtesy to those who, to me, obviously should have a seat. So, I’m here to give some basic guidelines on when to offer up your seat.
Here is my list of those who should have first priority on seats:
- Expecting mothers
- Parents holding young children
- Young children (teenagers can stand with the rest of us!)
Seems obvious to me, but I have witnessed strong, healthy men sit comfortably while women hold onto squirming toddlers.
Obviously, there are plenty of times anyone can sit:
- You fall into one of the categories above
- There is plentiful seating
- You offer and the people in the above categories decline
Yes, it is your vacation too, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t all be polite. Whether you’re at Walt Disney World Florida, Disneyland California, or any of the Disney Parks overseas, we should all be considerate.
