    Rumors While You Wait!

    Have you ever been waiting in line for an attraction and hear someone in line tell a rumor to someone in their party that was so funny you could'nt stop yourself from laughing due to it being so far from the truth?

    Well that just happened to me in the park today! I was in line for HM and a lady behind me was telling her boyfriend that in order to work at DL you had to live in Orange County! I could not stop from laughing at that one!

    Anyone out there have similar situations? I love hearing what peeps come up with!

    That isn't completely untrue... Usually there is some basis of truth in a rumor... I think it was based on the fact that DL does not offer relocation assistance and you have to apply on site....

    My favorites are overhearing people:

    - Claiming the Canoes are on a track.
    - Claiming Walt is being kept on ice.
    - Speculating the apparently MASSIVE underground city that Walt built under Disneyland where his surviving relatives now reside.
    - The guard dogs they let loose in the park overnight (One even claimed to see a janitor picking up after one of the alledged mutts who confessed to this long-kept secret).
    - The fully staffed "Jailhouse" on site, run by a special unit of ARMED Disney-employed guards that are NEVER seen onstage unless dire cir***stances dictate it.
    - The fact that Walt's ghost roams the Mansion, and that is why one of the singing busts resembles him so closely.
    - The Matterhorn is an actual natural rock formation, and was the reason Disney chose the area to build DL on.

    and the best one....

    - Cast Members are required to join the Church of Scientology to be considered for hire.

    Wow.....I mean, wow.

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

    Read it a couple of years ago on a former cast member's blog who'd heard some yappy woman telling her friends this. I couldn't stop rolling on that one.

    It bothers me SOO much when I hear wrong information from random guests ... I kinda wanna be like, "Um -- ACTUALLY....." hahaha but that's a little too mean.

    And btw, I love how the word "cir***stances" is "starred" out.

    Two of my Favs at the Haunted Mansion and overheard numerous times,

    1) Brigam Youngs hearse is the one out front(Brigam young was walked between his funeral and burial,it was only a few blocks. there is no historical record of ANY hearse being used)

    2) Vincente Price does the voice over for the Mansion attraction( nice try if you were in Phantom Manor in Paris at the open before the French Track that runs now)(Paul Frees,AKA Boris Badinov did it as we all know)

    I just dont have it in me to say anything at the time,dont want the speaker to feel like a chump or the more likley result of someone thinking I AM the misinformed person.

    me and my friends like to stand in line and loudly make up and try to spread rumors we know are incorrect or are so rediculous that they couldn't be correct. I bet people either think we're the biggest idiots for believing that manatees evolved from elephants or they think they've just heard some amazing insider info like the haunted mansion having guest celebrities playing the part of the scared groundskeeper.

    haha I used to make up things in line to, it was awesmome to watch everyone trying to listen but not make it obvious. It's always great to start a rumor and then hear it later on in the day in a diffrent line lol
    Evil is lurking behind the matterhorn........ wait, that's just Mickey

    Well they told me in Traditions when I started working at DLR, that Harbor Blvd. would sink if they drained the sub lagoon. I laughed really loudly because I thought they were kidding. The Trainer just looked at me blankly and as it turns out she actually believed what she was saying and was not making a joke. Ayayayayayay!

    This only continues to float my theory that CMs are worse than guests when it comes to bad information

    I was crossing the drawbridge years ago and two elderly ladies were gazing into the moat and debating whether the swans were real.
