If you couldn't understand what they were saying, how do you know they were being rude?

The fact that one of them slapped his wife's rear then laughed and said something in Spanish may have had something to do with it. Along with the families with lots of kids shoving their way ahead of people in line.

Do you think that all brown people are here illegally, or just the ones who don't act white enough?
So if they were here on vacation is that the normal behavior in their homelands? Seriously? Married men smackin totally strange woman on the A$$?

Other posters in this thread seem to have had a different experience at Disneyland. It's hard to know who to believe.
I've had 2 ok and one really crummy time there, the last time and I won't go again. They have some discount day for what I'll call the 'underprivileged' . Let's just say English wasn't the language of choice on those days. My God what a mess that day was. We stayed part of the day and by then we had enough. I was so @#$#ed I wanted my money back but was glad to just get out of there with my sanity. Spanish I can deal with, stampedes and moronic behavior I cannot.

Check the calendar, many days are loaded with incentives for discounts.

I would, but Disneyland isn't my thing. Crowds bother me.

The people at the park were sooooo rude (mainly the ones that spoke only spanish)...trying to wedge their 20 kids in front of me and my niece, cutting, one married family man hit my wifes butt, and said "lo siento" and laughed. We got so many dirty and awkward looks from some people as if we were a strange breed in some foreign country.

I just couldn't believe how some of these families, who had 5+ kids, could afford to drop $500 on a trip to Disneyland. This park was, no joke, almost ALL spanish speakers (not just hispanics or other legal citizens whom I dont have a problem with, but people who literally spoke no english). I asked one of the older men (he worked as an information man) about it, and he said that Disney forces him to take classes at the local community college in order to learn spanish to cater to the almost 100% spanish speaking population at Disneyland, and that new employee's are almost required to speak spanish to be in serious contention for a job.

I was wondering if all parks in the Southwest and Texas are like this. I just didn't think these people, who speak no english and work extrememly low paying jobs, could afford to take a day at Disneyland.

Is there anyone else out there who has visited the Disney park recently and knows what I am talking about? It was the most miserable experience and I hope I don't ever return.

Disneylands a clusterf----. Overpriced, packed, long lines. Nothing new. Somebody had a bad day, like most do at disneyland, and as someone that already has issues with Hispanics and/or illegals, that was the focus of his bad day. California has millions of Latinos, most of them citizens or legal. Especially those at Disneyland. I doubt if everyone was white, English-speaking, the guy wouldn't have that much better of a time. Disneyland sucks. Well...he wouldn't be fixated on the Hispanics at least.
