You can't forget the EMAC's, meaning Every Man a Comedian. These are people usually groups of men and women where the men are trying to impress the women with their wit, so they do something that has been done hundreds of times before and then the whole group laughs like it's the most original, funniest thing ever done.
Knocking on doors that are clearly props is the fastest, surest way to spot an EMAC. The door on the side of Pirates or under the bridge on Thunder Mountain are favorite spots, although the door by the waterfall in line for Knott's log ride is where my friends and I first made this discovery and is completely irresistable to any EMAC.
These freak me out! This happens to us every time we go! And it's even freakier when you spend part of the day at DL, jump over to DCA for a bit and see them there too! Then you take a break back at the hotel and come back to DL in the evening, and they're back again!
I'm glad it's not just me who has this happen! I was starting to think I was being followed.
Great list! Funny and true! Here are a few more categories I've created:
Campers: People who bring loads of blankets, towels, pillows and umberellas just to claim a good viewing spot several hours in advance of a parade or fireworks show.
Human Pets: Kids who are tied or strapped to leashes and ropes more than an arm's length by their owners (parents). These Human Pets also receive verbal commands from the people holding the end of the rope.
Bling-Bling: They can be seen wearing pounds of reflective bling, otherwise known as Disney pins that fill up entire lanyards, vests and specially-designed suitcases. Fellow fans of bling-bling can often be found outside Store Command in Tomorrowland, or hovering around bling-trader carts.
Sig-Alert: People who decide to unpredictably and randomly STOP in the middle of crowded walkways, causing people traffic jams and increasing the frustration of everyone else.
FYI: What are Sig-Alerts? "Sig-Alerts" are unique to Southern California. They came about in the 1940s when the Los Angeles Police Department got in the habit of alerting a local radio reporter, Loyd Sigmon, of bad car wrecks on city streets. These notifications became known as "Sig-Alerts." Later Mr. Sigmon developed an electronic device that authorities could use to alert the media of disasters. Caltrans latched on to the term "Sig-Alert" and it has come to be known as any traffic incident that will tie up two or more lanes of a freeway for two or more hours.
Yes, I do LOVE Disney California Adventure. Disneyland is not so bad either ;-)
Beenworkingtolongs : Cast members working rides that really get mad at you (over-react) when you accidentally do something wrong. This usually ruins the guests experience at the happiest place on earth.
Lass Members: (Named in honor of Dead Like Me character George Lass.) Cast Members who are totaly bored with their jobs, and life in general. Usually 20-something slackers with blank expressionless faces or sarcastic sneers, they can often be spotted in a Fantasyland dark ride; pushing the dispatch button for the 56,832th time.
