  • Funny things overheard from guests

    I know this has been brought up before, but I haven't seen it in a while. What funny things have you heard other people say about the parks and things related that were so unbelieveable or untrue. Here are two that I heard this weekend. First one had me laughing and the other had me thinking how sad and unbelieveable.

    1) (at unload of POTC)
    Mom: I don't remember there being any drops on this the last time.
    Daughter: It didn't, they added them last year when they put in Jack Sparrow.

    2) (while getting fastpasses for Soarin')
    Mom: You better get a fast pass if you want to ride later.
    Dad: I don't need one, they won't split up a family.
    Mom: But you will need one to get in.
    Dad: No I won't, they don't want to face a lawsuit for splitting a family up.

    What are some of the other one's that you have heard?

    I overheard a little old lady exclaim, "Dumbo just dropped his coconuts to the ground!" :blush:

      Working section B for Fantasmic!, I heard a pretty funny convo from a group:

      Dad: This show is the light show with the water fountains and pryo and everything, right?
      Mom: No honey. First of all, call it Fantasia - that's the real name. Second, it doesn't have water fountains, it's only fireworks and characters on the island.
      -Fantasmic! ends-
      Mom: See? I told you they had water fountains in the show!
      Dad: But-
      Mom: OK, let's go to the castle quick!

      Please don't come up to me calling it The Light Show, Fantasia, the water show, NOR do not ask me when the 9pm showing is. I might just tell you it starts 6pm EST.

          Sounds like a Soarin' Cast Member was in for some fun later on that night. Working in the guest service industry, for some reason there is a pattern of alot of Dads who try and escape responsibility and stupid behavior by just threatening to sue at the drop of a hat. :rant::rant::rant:

            It was in between Christmas/New Years 2000 - and I was 29 years old at the time. I was at the park waiting for a friend who wouldn't be there for an hour or so. I went to get a munchy from French Market and this actually nice group of teenagers were behind me talking about how cool it was that they all got to come to Disneyland and how happy that they could all be together and how they should talk a picture.

            Just then, a tap on my shoulder and a voice that said, "Sir - would you mind taking our picture?" I said, "Sir?" Then one of them looked startled and said, "Oh....we mean Dude." I laughed, and I said, 'Not a problem guys....I'd be happy to take your picture."

            It was shocking that I had been 'dude' in my mind, but to them I was 'sir'. But commendations were in order for their politeness - a rarity these days.

              In Tomorrowland, this past weekend ....

              Kid, around 10 years old or so, talking to his parents: "I couldn't get a picture with him because there were all these other people taking pictures and they wouldn't let me get close enough."

              Dad: "Were they Orientals?"

              Me, walking by, not minding my own business: "Dude, 'Oriental' is not the preferred nomenclature!"

              True story.

                In the Disneyana shop on Main Street:

                A young man and woman looking at figurines in the display cases, the guy pointing at one --

                Guy: Hey, look it's the donkey boy from Pinocchio.
                Girl: Oh, cute. What's his name?
                Guy: Donkey Boy.
                Girl: Ooh. Donkey Boy.


                .... this exhange made me laugh - hard. The tone in their voices was so classic - as if the character Lampwick's name really was "Donkey Boy"

                Hilarious!

                  What? It isn't Donkey Boy, the second cousin of Donkey Kong? Those type of remarks are just plain hilarious. If you don't know, just say I don't know.

                    Person I know: Beast is hot.
                    Me: That would be like me saying Pinocchio is hot.

                        Last year my husband and I just happened to be at Disneyland at the same time as my friend and her husband while they were on their honeymoon. We met up and rode a few rides together and saw the parade. Afterwards we were admiring the characters playing musical chairs with a group of very happy children. My friend's new husband turned to us as we walked away and said, "I don't see what the big deal is, they are just people in costumes."

                        I ABOUT SMACKED HIM DOWN RIGHT THEN AND THERE and he's like 6'6". My husband was appaled as well. I seriously could not believe what blasphemy was spoken right there on holy ground. Wow. Needless to say that was then end of our time spent with them at Disneyland.

                            I wrote this some where else but I'll write it here too.

                            My sister and I were just leaving the ToT when we walked by this couple. The woman point at the Tower.

                            "Honey we should stay here sometime, it looks like a nice place."

                              (more disturbing than funny) heard from a dad and child in line for splash mountain:

                              child: (screaming and yelling) i don't want to go on the ride! i don't want to go down the big hill!

                              dad: don't worry, when we get up there we can ask the castmember to send us by the cute fuzzy animals only because there are two versions of the ride. you don't have to go down the hill.



                              i'd hate to think how this child felt after the ride!
