Mexico itself has nice people. I doubt these are tourists from Mexico. The people who live in Mexico generally are polite, friendly, not so pushy and loud.

One problem is that those people who won't do anything to improve their own country which requires improving themselves are the ones who come here.

Nope, nothing wrong with my logic at all. I moved my family out of CA last year and were are so happy to be out of that hell hole and I feel for anyone who can't get out that want to.

DIS has taken a giant dump. It traded as low as $15 just recently, down more than half in a year. They burned through $600 million in cash last year. The biggest factor is substantially lower returns on their investment accounts. Their cost of sales are up up $1.7 billion on increased sales of $2.3 billion; their gross profit dropped 2%, which is quite a bit.

Everybody loves to accuse these "guys" of hiring illegals so they can all get rich. A quick trip to the SEC website and one learns that DIS is mostly owned by institutional investors, such as Fidelity, Vanguard, certain state pension funds, etc. In simple English, that means you and me own Disney. If you have a mutual fund or 401(k), you might indirectly own shares of DIS.

The simple solution is just boycott DIS. In the short-term, there is a fair amount of satisfaction with doing this. It is expensive. It is crowded. I have witnessed some of the behavior described in the OP. As an Anglo fluent in Spanish, I understand most of what is said. When I don't understand it, I know I am dealing with a dialect from southern Mexico. Regardless, most of what they say is no different than any other family. They are excited. For some of these kids (dirt poor), the excitement is even more pronounced. I am not defending rude behavior, but I don't think their intent is to be rude.

The best way to deal with this situation is by mail. Write a letter directly to Disneyland. Keep it clear, concise, and respectful. Two pages max. Do not focus on the behavior or language of the visitors - they have no control over who gets in the front door. Focus on the friendliness of the park staff, cleanliness, etc. I bet they take care of you. The real advantage is not the freebies they give you, but rather it puts them on notice that you care about how they treat you. If enough people send them enough letters, they will get the message.

no I think in order to be a legal citizen they need to speak english.
I think big biz will do anything to stay fat.

Default Baseball

Slightly off topic,but have you been to a major league baseball game in SoCal recently?Catch an Angel or Dodger game and most of the problems mentioned here about Disneyland will be found at the ballpark.Baseball is very popular with the local cholos,and the illegals have also become big fans.Hordes of loud,rude,pushy fans fill the stadium.
