There seem to be two types of tourists: the ones that stick to themselves, minding their own business, and the kind who wreak havo, often without realizing it.

Bad behavior from tourists isn’t just confined to hotels and airports – it’s rampant at amusement parks, especially Disney parks.

Here are 8 terrible things that tourists have done at Disney parks:

1. Attacking a pregnant womanBuzzfeed recently asked its members to share their stories of the terrible things they have seen tourists do in Disney parks. One woman, katiescarlettw, recalled how she saw a man shove a pregnant cast member against the wall and attempt to punch her stomach while his family looked on. The assault was because the cast member refused to "let him cut in line."

  2. Dumping human ashes on a Disneyland ride. There have been numerous reports of people dumping the ashes of their loved ones in popular rides and attractions in Disneyland. In 2007 one woman was spotted scattering the ashes of a loved into the water of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride, which was temporarily shut down as officials investigated whether or not the ashes were a harmful substance, Business Insider reported.

3. Holding luggage hostage. Things turned bizarre when a luggage mixup at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas in 2016 ended in a couple holding someone else's luggage hostage. It all began with a broken Hello Kitty toothbrush. According to Business Insider, the luggage was accidently sent to the wrong room but when staff knocked on the door to retrieve the luggage, the couple inside refused to hand it over because hotel workers would not replace their broken toothbrush. The couple locked themselves in the room while hotel staff called the police, who forced their way into the room and were met with the angry occupants who attacked the officers. The couple were ultimately charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, grand theft, and resisting an officer without violence.

4. A teen choking incident. This arose from a blocked view of fireworks. In 2017 a woman was arrested and charged with felony child abuse after she attempted to choke a teenage girl for not sitting down during the nightly fireworks show at the Disney's Magic Kingdom, Business Insider noted. The woman could not get a clear view of the fireworks when the teen and her friends stood up during the show, so she wrapped her hands around the girl's neck and choked her.

5. Trying to stuff a dog in a locker. A woman wanted to ride the Grizzly River Run at Disney California Adventure but there was just one problem, she had her dog with her. However, she soon came up with a solution and tried to stuff the dog into a locker, BuzzFeed user thegirlwhowaited14 said.

6. Getting frisky on "Pirates of the Caribbean."  Buzzfeed user mashcraft13 recalled the most uncomfortable Disney ride. One couple got a little too frisky while riding the "Pirates of the Caribbean." As soon as the ride came to an end, the risqué couple were escorted from the park by security, but the rest of the people on the ride were left reeling in shock.

7. A stupid prank that led to a hotel lockdown. There are some things you cannot joke about in public, as a man visiting Disney's Contemporary Resort learnt in 2018. He decided it would be funny to tell guests there was an active shooter on the premises then record their reactions for a YouTube video but he did not foresee the resort going on lockdown. He was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace and disorderly intoxication, according to Business Insider.

8. Punching characters. A few years back a man visiting Disney World snuck into the cast member tunnels and hit three cast members, Business Insider reported. He was charged with aggravated battery and two counts of battery after punching two members in the face and striking a third with a three-foot pipe.
