The people who cut will probably continue to cut regardless of the line jumping postings. Today we were in line for a ride 9 children and myself. Of course I asked if any of the kids had to go before entering the line with out realizing the new posted line jumping rules. (This is a continuous question asked once a parent.) No one had to. Of course 10 minutes later, one of the children had to go to the bathroom. Once in line, I sent the one child since the bathroom was 15 feet away. Well power of suggestion, and five more went and came back to join the line. After we waited another 20 minutes in line, we were told to go to the end of the line. Now it was definitely enforced at that specific ride, so we had to go back to the end of the line. However through out the day we watched time and time again as the line jumping policy was not enforced through out the park and this was not by people entering the line together and going to the bathroom. It was by people catching up to friends that were ahead of them in line.
Is paying for a fast pass just paying to cut in line?
So they're basically admitting that they're violating the park's rules, and failed to realize these so-called 'new rules.' Sorry, but line jumping policies have been there for ages. My understanding as a kid: use the restroom before you go on the ride, and if you decide not to or don't have to, but suddenly have to go in line, just wait it out. If I were the parent, I would have made sure the kids were ready to get in line (as in get their bathroom duties out of the way) and tell them that once in line they can't leave the line unless they aren't going to ride at all.
And yes, I would have probably been annoyed at 6 kids all doing their 'excuse me' routine.
Y'know, I actually saw some drunk literally piss off the side of the walkway in the Boulder Dash queue last October. I mean, having to use the bathroom is not an excuse to leave and then cut back in, but that sure ain't acceptable either.
