RELATEDWill Walt Disney World Guests’ Behavior Improve If This Chaperone Policy Is Implemented?

These extra safety measures beg the question: do Guests no longer feel safe while visiting Disney Parks? If so, it can be chalked up to the rising behavior of Guests visiting Disney Parks, which has gotten bolder and more dangerous in recent years.

This begs another question: is there more Disney can do about negative behavior in its Parks? Unfortunately, only Disney can take action toward the shift Guests have seen while visiting Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
