Disney's Human Element - Brazilian Tour Groups.... "Here We Come...."
"... Walkin' down the street
We get the funniest looks from
Everyone we meet..."
Unfortunately, I think that Monkees Theme Song speaks to what a lot of people think about the Brazilian tour groups. Some people think "Oh, well, that type of behavior is probably tolerated in their country. But it's totally not appropriate here in America." But recently, I've seen a couple of posts on forums, from a couple of Brazilians; one of which has been a part of a Disney Tour Group. Well... any rude or line cutting behavior you may see, is definitely not acceptable in Brasil. And since these are teenagers, with chaperones they might not know all that well; they may tend to act-up once in a while. So in the end, it's just kids being kids. And not all of them display bad behavior. But since there seem to be many groups at Disney during the same timeframe, a lot of visitors probably just get overwhelmed with all of them. And it's just too bad that they all get grouped together in the realm of public opinion.
