    I've heard of him! On the internet...sometimes mentioned on this site called "Mouse Chat"? Or something like that. Lots of pictures. This person I certainly wouldn't mind actually seeing in the parks, being a Stitch fan and all.

    Next time you see him, you should invite him to this site. He'd fit right in.

I've seen her and the guy entering the parks a half hour before closing to get to Pan and sometimes a couple of other Fantasyland rides before it. It's eccentric but in a cool way. I joke with my wife that one day we'll be like that on some ride, and the wife gives me that look...
    Actually no, you're getting them mixed up. The red-haired woman comes in to ride Peter Pan several times a week, and also during the fireworks show she screams at everyone to turn around and "look at the matterhorn" when Tinkerbell flies down. Kind of annoying actually.

    The other couple are the Andersons, the tall man with glasses and his wife. They come in the evenings to go on Fantasyland rides as well. I used to like them until they thought they knew so much they could evac themselves off of the rides when they broke down.

    The Andersons and the red-haired woman have actually gotten into fights about who was going to be the last to ride Peter Pan for the night. When the leads were called it got kind of ridiculous. It's only a ride people.

    But I don't want to go among MAD people!

He is so much fun to watch!!!!I
    OMG I love this guy!! I have seen him wander over to Tomorrowland Terrace occasionally too...he just loves to dance!

    Oh, if I was the lead in that situation, I would so just be like "Sorry folks, it is after park closing now and the attraction is closed for the night." and then they both are not the last people on the attraction.

    And "Peter Pan Lady" is what I've always herd her referred to as. It's almost comical to watch her at the parades. She sits right where the first float stops and gets this big ole grin when Peter climbs down. Its funny to watch Tinks reaction to that as well... Ah, parades are fun...

    Since the 'Annual Pass' has become synonymous with shocking abnormality, I'd say you all are fairly unique.

    No clue, haven't been back in the area. I had considered doing a weekly report with pictures just to ensure that I earned the nitpicking title... Also I see it as a scientific oportunity to see how algae grows in a time lapse photograph. But then it was explained that the fish were supposed to be brown, and that they accidentally spilled white paint on one

    There's one that always watches the parade and lifts his baseball cap to the performers.

    I used to know several that frequented Jungle and would request specific Skippers. Most knew a lot of the jokes, some could be annoying, just depended.

    Not ok. It bothers me enough when people jump out of cars when they're in the station, let alone EVACING themselves.

    I'm trying to get to know the regulars at Classics, which I suppose includes the penguin lady. Isn't she a CM now?

    Thankfully I never had to deal with that. However there were individuals who thought they know all the jokes on Jungle... keyword thought... yeah that was fun!

    Re: The Unique and Interesting APers

    i don't know of anyone specifically (and i've never seen a regular like this) but i've been told here on MC as well as by CMs who go to my school that there are some regulars who walk around and act like CMs. they show up everyday and boss other park guests around and such. i think someone mentioned one in a thread about the Andersons when we were talking about a guy with a clipboard, because i've heard a clipboard guy mentioned in the past, but i'm not entirely sure he's one of the bossy ones. i've never encountered a guest like this, and i hope i never will!

    Yah, she was recently hired in Main Street stores. And then she was suspended for a time because it was said she was stealing Peter Pan merchandise. She isn't really welcome among Fantasyland CMs.

    Frankly, I don't really consider her a CM because she doesn't value the magic really. She boasts about her knowledge to anyone who will listen, which includes giving out names of some of the characters (she even shouts them outloud during the parade). She probably just considers her Disney ID as a free annual pass.

    But I don't want to go among MAD people!

    That is just horrible. I know a couple of character's names, but I wouldn't go around telling people "Oh, their real name is -blank-" or freaking yell it out TO the character while they're working. You'd think someone would get in trouble for that sort of thing, especially if they're a CM and should know that that's not acceptable.
