    Yep. In fact it's supposedly going to be a record year for South American visitors coming to WDW.

    Thats just great.... Look I know they have just as much right to be there as anyone...but most of the interactions I have had with them has been bad... oh well. Its a vacation lol, and its Disney World, not Disney USA lol. Maybe this will be the year I wont almost get run over by the tour groups, or get nasty looks from them because I wont let them cut in front of me for soarin...

    Is there a time of year these tour groups typically visit?

    We have been going the 3rd week of August for the past 6 years and we never see any tour groups, except for local schools/day care facilities doing day trips.

    I keep reading horror stories about these tour groups and I'm a bit worried.

    We vacationed from Jan 8 -15th this year & the Brazilian tour groups were out in full force. Was not aware they had a 2nd round during the summer.

    Same here. I was there the following week in January. I really noticed the big groups the first two or 3 days and then they were virtually gone.

    Does anyone know where they stay? On property? Off? Values? Deluxes?

    That's a good question - I think we may be doing another January trip (maybe. maybe.) - the last time we stayed at CSR, but we really miss our home POP. I was told they stay there, then I was also told groups of any kind don't stay at POP. I'm confused.

    I stayed in Pop a few years back and there were lots of Brazilian groups staying there. They did not seem to want to queue at the food court counters and seemed to just push in front of everyone that was waiting

    I know they were at the All Stars last January. We stayed at AKL and did not see any tour groups there.

    Oh goodness. Every interaction i have had with them has not been a positive one. So i am bummed to hear its a record year. And they usually stay in a value resort because last year when i stayed at All Star Music there was a surplus of them there.

    We had plenty of interactions with them the last two January's, but to be honest I don't recall anything being that bad. I have heard horror stories about some of them, but that can be said about any of the groups we might run into there. Luckily in our experience we had mostly well behaved and polite BTGs. One moment that stands out to me is when getting Soarin' FP the lady in front of me had all the tickets for about 60 members of her group. She at least told me the moment I got behind her what she was doing so I could get into a different line.
    Good luck to all of you, just remember, go the opposite way and stay in front of the flags and you'll most likely be fine!

    There were several when we visited last week- 1st week of June. However, it was uneventful and there were no issues. The groups were wearing t shirts but appeared to split up into smaller groups in line and didn't ride all together or try to let the others in.

    Part of the 'not waiting in line' thing is a cultural difference. In Latin countries, there are no lines at deli counters, butchers, stores...it's more of a free-for-all. I have gotten elbowed in the stomach by more than a couple grandmas in Italy at the butcher shop. So, they come by this honestly. Now...it's still a problem, but I don't know how to educate them about queue etiquette in a week or less.

    What I love is that when Americans travel overseas, people call us "ugly" if we don't try to follow local custom, but if these tour groups knock your kids over rushing onto the rides, it's a "cultural difference".

    Disney World is in the USA. In the USA, we take turns and line up. If you're doing anything else, you are being rude.

    I find it sorta funny how everyone in the world views Americans as rude travelers...yet when people visit here it seems they lose all manners and become incredibly rude themselves. Brazilians are the worst! I have a couple friends from Brazil and they say its the same way there. Cut in lines, argue, get in your way, and generally have no problem invading your personal space.
