    Re: What "facts" do your friends and family get mixed up regarding DL/DLR?

    "I'm going to LA to go to Disneyland."

    For the Twilight Zone Library Room I hear people call it an elevator all the time.

    To Disney's credit, the first time I brought along a friend as a first-timer he thought the Indi animatronics were real guys and wouldn't believe a word I said about them.

    At my most recent job, my boss claimed to share my Disney enthusiasm and proceeded to ask me, "Have you ever been to that Club? The one next to Pirates? Club 54?"

    Umm....

    Lately I've seen "Cars ride" on other sites.

    When I tell people I worked at Disneyland for a summer, they always ask about "all those secret tunnels" LOL

    "what's that?"
    There used to be a day where "What's that?" in response to Club 33 was the rule and not the exception.

    "This way is quickest..." . Not really a fact but I find it funny that some people at 6:00 at night think the fastest way to the Matterhorn from Main Street is through Tomorrowland.

    And more recently, "we will sit next together" as people walk into the single rider lines.

    That they stop you and make you wait just outside the indoor portions of queues such as Space, Indy, and Roger Rabbit because the walkways are narrow inside and they have to keep them clear because of terrorism. No matter how many times I tried to explain it's because of fastpass, it just wouldn't sink in.

    Also, did you know that the talking skull before the drop on Pirates isn't the same voice as it's always been? (X. Atencio) "It's reeeeeal close, but they didn't get it quite right." No, you haven't been here since they remastered the audio. Perhaps that's why it sounds a bit different to you, but it's still the same guy, I assure you. Nope, still wouldn't sink in.

    Yeah, I don't like going to DL with this person.

    Actually my experience has been that people think that all Disney parks are called "Disney" as in "we're going to Disney." That makes me explode a little every time I hear it.

    Of course the underground tunnels. And that Sleeping Beauty's Castle is Cinderella's Castle (wrong park).

    I'm the same way! I'm constantly on here, Disney Parks Blog, Disney Food Blog...DisneyLies (so funny!) so I feel I'm pretty up to date and in the know with all things Disneyland.

    But I've waited in too many lines with the BIGGEST and LOUDEST know-it-alls that spout off incorrect information and lore to their family or friends that even though I think I have my facts in order, I keep quiet, lol.

    Friends and I will be waiting for HM and someone will say, "Yeah, because of the popularity of Nightmare Before Christmas theming for the holidays, they had this closed down to incorporate the Corpse Bride in the attic scene."

    I just remain silent. My friends love to see me in these situations and always antagonize me with, "Really, hey did you know that? That they put Corpse Bride in here?"

    I just smile and say, "No, I didn't; that's...very cool."

    Re: What "facts" do your friends and family get mixed up regarding DL/DLR?

    Couple weeks back I was able to hear a very visibly upset mother insist to her family that there was an "effing Grinch somewhere in this park!"

    She didn't use the word 'effing'.
    "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

    Re: What "facts" do your friends and family get mixed up regarding DL/DLR?

    "You can walk all the way from "it's a small world" to "Pirates" without going above ground.
    Or, the opposite. I was trying to tell someone about the tunnel that does go from what is now Innoventions to under Tomorrowland Terrace, and he would't believe me, saying "there's a road that goes behind Tommorowland", (which of course, there is).
    The fact that there are some tunnels and basements and the full set of utilidors in Florida's Magic Kingdom makes this a difficult one to get across to people. Some people just don't want to let go of that false belief of that "underground city" under Disneyland. It's almost like an adult version of believing in Santa, isn't it?
