"Modern Family" at Disneyland

I don't watch ABC's Modern Family, but those of you who do..and I understand it's a very successful show...have a shot-at-Disneyland episode to look forward to.

Now, I don't know if this picture is a scene from the show, or simply a candid shot of actress Sofia Vergara and Rico Rodriguez, who plays her son, having fun on a ride between takes.

If it's the former, then this picture bothers me a little. If it's the latter, it bothers me a little more.

Take a look at young Mr. Rodriguez' right hand.

Double standard, anyone?

I'll bet HE was not escorted from the park.

Unless it is different on the "left coast", last I checked Disney does not have a policy against handheld items on rides. Down in Orlando, they used to require it (no personal belongings could be left on the platform.)

Mike, It is not against the rules to bring cell phones, cameras or anything you want on that ride. Disney doesn't have any policy against bringing your personal belongings on any of their rides that I recall. Leaving personal belongings in the station severely hurts ride throughput and Disney won't allow it. I love Disney ride operations. They are the best!

There is also almost zero risk of anyone being injured by you bringing a cell phone on Splash Mountain. You're risking water damage to your phone and that's about it.

I didn't know about the policy. Thanks. And if young Mr. Rodriguez' cell phone was damaged, I imagine he can afford a new one pretty easily...

In general, I don't think it's our job to police amusement ride policies. We don't know all of the circumstances in individual situations and it's the job of the park's management and employees to be the enforcers.

If it is a pic from the show, then I don't see what's wrong with it as it's meant to be a funny situation.

As for cell phones and loose objects, I do think they should be in the pocket till the rider gets off and not in their hands. It's why Dragon challenge will no longer duel again because of idiots wanting to film the ride/themselves on it. However, I don't believe there are many Disney rides (other than rockin roller coaster or test track) that are so intense where a ride op would tel a person to put a loose object away. Obviously one should ask if they can take their camera out and they will allow it.
