When I went, everyone was respectful. It could have been the security guards present, but I cannot decisively say. The new version of the show was excellent in my personal opinion and well-received by everyone in the audience when I was there. Namely, I liked how it showcased conflict throughout history and how it showed the poor reception of Abraham Lincoln by his contemporaries. They made fun of him and thought he was not educated enough for the title of President. As a side note, the new graphics were exceptional. It was an accurate and beautiful representation of the United States. This and the Flag Retreat in my opinion are important to WDW. In the last Flag Retreat I attended, the chosen veteran was crying tears of joy as the audience was applauding. I think that not everyone realizes how much this matters to people.
