Welcome to the MouseQuest Podcast- Your guide in the quest for the perfect Disney vacation. This is episode number 48. This week we will be discussing how to be a good guest while on vacation. Sometimes when we visit Walt Disney World it’s easy to point out the irritating social faux pas of the people around us. But, instead of focusing on behaviors that we can’t control, we’re going to consider what WE can do to avoid those situations and improve the vacation experience for ourselves and others.

We all know that the Disney Parks are a huge vacation destination for guests from all around the world. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, it’s inevitable that you’ll be shoulder to shoulder with thousands of other Disney fans. Let’s talk about some tips that will help us to be considerate of the people around us and hopefully make great vacations even better. Questions this week include:
