    Re: Any "Interesting" Stories of Your Time at the Parks? (The Good, Bad, or the UGLY!

    some of the stories about cutting in line reminded me about this past Saturday. My sister and I were at the Gibson Girl ice cream parlor waiting in line. behind us were a mom and a little boy. the little boy walked in front of us and we didn't notice. Then the mom walked in front of us and straight up cut us. All I said to my sister was "did we just get cut?" I think the mom heard me but acted like she didn't. Either way I wasn't trying to be confrontational. I never am at Disney because I am always in a great mood when I'm at the parks and hate to make a big deal of things even though there are some pretty rude guests there.

    Anyway I thought the mom was really shamelessly rude. obviously we are waiting too and just because your son walked in front of us doesn't give you the right to use him as an excuse to cut us. Sometimes I forget Disneyland is part of the real world where some people are not polite :/

    Brer Fox usually screws around a lot...and gets away with it. One morning in front of Splash Mountain, just minutes into park opening, with no one around, Brer Fox and Brer Bear were sumo wrestling. When they stopped, Brer Fox came over to me and my baby stroller, grabbed my unopened Monster energy drink, and posed for a picture as if he were going to feed it to my four month old baby. It's a hilarious picture!

    The guy getting off on GRR reminded me of a story. Grad Night 79 (God am I old). Anyway, a group of us guys went on the Peoplemover while our girlfriends were shopping, they didn't want us around for 15 minutes. We were in the ATIS building when two of my friends forced open the door and got out. They yelled at some folks in the store then ran back towards the ATIS loading area. We lost sight of them as we headed toward the Starcade.

    As we were cruising around over the Autopia we could see that they entered a car three trains back. When we returned to the loading area we saw several CMs waiting. They asked us if we knew them and we said we did, but they are idiots. We left and rejoined our GFs who were at the bottom of the speedramp. We watched our two adventures escorted backstage. I had two GFs for the rest of the night and they didn't seem to miss them.

    Several years later I heard of a guy who was killed doing the same thing on the PM. It wasn't my friend, he's still alive (by pure luck).
    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

    Re: Any "Interesting" Stories of Your Time at the Parks? (The Good, Bad, or the UGLY!

    Sorta similar to the Five and Dime story, my girlfriend and I went to Disneyland last weekend and it was even my 120th visit to the parks! Anyways, we watched both performances of Soundsational because it's my FAVORITE parade. So much I dressed up as one of the chimney sweeps for Halloween.

    Anyways, we were watching the first performance in front of the Emporium and having fun. We were mouthing the words of the soundtrack and I was mimicking the choreography. Almost all of the performers noticed and winked or smiled I my direction. I was having a ball. Then came the Mary Poppins unit, which is probably my favorite. So I continued doing the dance moves and then one of the chimney sweeps jokingly started to hand me his broom told me, "Would you like to have a go? it's pretty hard." After the parade ended, we quickly ran across town square and watched the parade as it went through the parade gates. This time, ALL of the chimney sweeps pointed at me and gave a big smile.

    As if that wasn't Soundsational overload, we watched the second performance over by Small World. This time, both my girlfriend and I were both mouthing the lyrics and attempting the dance moves and roughly 80% of the performers recognized us from the first performance! They would be waving at all the other guests but when they noticed us, they got a genuine look of surprise and smiled the biggest smile and frantically waved/pointed us out.

    Not only were these my favorite performances of Soundsational, but it was also a great way to remember my 120th visit to the parks. We made sure to leave a comment card at City Hall and couldn't stop thanking the entire cast.
    The music celebration puts some motion into my ocean!

    What great memories! I love it.

    We were getting ready for school and my dad was still home. Something was up. Then grandpa appeared at the door and said he would take us to school. Cool but still strange. My sisters and I were hijacked and taken to Disneyland. We were in the park before the 'rope drop' and my grandfather handed my sisters a couple of packs of tickets each. He told them to meet us at the hub at noon (my sisters are several years older then me).

    My grandpa and I then went for breakfast. I can't remember the place but it was on Main Street near the hub. During breakfast my dad showed up. My mom and grandma went shopping, my sisters were on their own, and it was 'guy day'.

    It was my first real memory of 'hanging out' with my dad and grandpa. Just us. The day was cool, the park was fairly empty and the lines were short. We stayed all day and had dinner at the hotel. Then just me and grandpa went back for the fireworks and a few more rides.

    You can't buy memories like that. As you've seen earlier in this thread, I took my niece and nephew to the park when they were about the same age. Just the three of us. Maybe that's why I love Disneyland the way I do.

    Re: Any "Interesting" Stories of Your Time at the Parks? (The Good, Bad, or the UGLY!

    These stories are so funny.
    My family and I were in the park back in 2007 and my mom and I were taking a rest on one of the benches, I can't remember where we were sitting. However, there were these two Very young boys, maybe 2 or 3. And they were fighting over a disposable camera. They both had their hands on it, tugging and pulling. And then one would smack the other in the side of the face. And the other would grab a fist full of hair and pull the other to the ground. All whilst crying and shouting. And the parents just stood there like this was a normal occurrance.
    The same year, my family and I were watching one of the parades down Main Street. It was so crowded and I am NOT a fan of people pushing strollers in the park. So of course, I'm standing there watching, and a foreign tourist runs over my foot with his stroller and when I responded with a sharp, 'Excuse me?', he giggled and said something I couldn't understand and walked away. My blood was boiling!

    I was just catching up on this thread and about to respond to some of the posts when I read further and saw that some micechatters were trying to diffuse the situation so this fun thread wouldn't be locked, so won't do so here.
    It did make me think of a poll/thread in the "Litter Box" part of this forum that included some of the same topic. The poll part has been locked, but the thread has been left open in that forum, seems like a place for people to let off steam but keep it contained?
    Anyhow, since it seems some posters stay within their home forum more often than not, I thought I'd cross -post to that poll/thread as an option (hoping that's ok here).

    The poll choices were:

    Whay annoys you the most?

    Voters 47. This poll is closed

    Oh God.
    It's hard to choose just one from that poll.
    Line Cutters drive me up the wall. But there's something about people stopping abruptly in front of me that makes me grind my teeth.

    Yep, definitely - but I was trying to redirect those topics from here to that thread ...
    http://micechat.com/forums/litter-box/

    It's nice that micechat gives the option to blow off steam about things that some guests find annoying without having them turn into arguments on fun threads like these.
    Guess I ought to try and think of a fun DL story that I haven't posted somewhere else here?

    In the meantime, maybe I'll let out more of my "snarky" side in the "Litter Box".

    I remember in 2008 or so, when I was 10, I got really into pin trading. We were in the Golden Horseshoe eating some lunch while watching the Billies. I, of course, was organizing my pins for a lot of the show. When I finally looked up to watch, they stopped playing and Kirk Wall, the main Billy, said "It's about time! I was wondering when you were going to pay attention." I was so embarrassed.

    Re: Any "Interesting" Stories of Your Time at the Parks? (The Good, Bad, or the UGLY!

    I have a great heart warmer of a story about Turtle Talk with Crush.

    When my daughter was no more than six years old, my wife and I took her to the parks. (We used to be pass-holders and went fairly frequently.) We had gone to TTWC once before, when my daughter was quite small, and she loved it, so she couldn't wait to go again. As always, during the show, the host picks out a couple of kids who get to ask Crush questions, and my daughter happened to be picked that time.

    Now, I have to preface the rest of this story by telling you that 1) my daughter is really (no, I mean REALLY) smart, remembers virtually everything she reads and finds interesting, and had read a couple of books all about the life cycle of turtles. So, when prompted, she asked Crush how many of his little baby turtles had actually hatched and made their way to the ocean without being eaten by sea birds or other predators. Crush's face went completely slack-jawed and , and after a bit of uncertain silence, the audience all cracked up. Finally, Crush said that yes, little squirt did have brothers and sisters out in the ocean.

    That, alone, was too cool, but it doesn't even compare to what happened afterwards. When we were leaving, my wife and I hung around to thank the host. He said that he had NEVER seen Crush hit with a question like that. It was always stuff like "how long can you hold your breath" or "can you pull your head into your shell". While we were chatting, he noticed that my daughter was back, looking around the edges of the display screen. We asked what she was doing, and she said she was trying to see if she could spot Crush. The host picked up the mic, and said "Hey Crush! There is someone out here that would like to say hi to you." Well, lo and behold, out comes Crush. My daughter was then treated to a private conversation with Crush, for at least five minutes.

    The whole experience was priceless and none of us will ever forget it.

    Re: Any "Interesting" Stories of Your Time at the Parks? (The Good, Bad, or the UGLY!

    My family (2 daughters, son and wife) were at DL maybe 4 or 5 years ago for our second trip. We went to see the Fantasmic one night (using the light pole trick to get a great viewing location). As it turned out it was the first time the dragon actually breathed fire! We were all really excited about that, and the luck of our timing.

    As someone that goes to DL infrequently, I have to say that there are always annoying people everywhere you go, including DL. We end up enjoying everything about our trips, blowing off the little annoyances, and happy that we can spend time together. My wife and two daughters (son in college now) told me the other night that they want next summer's vacation to be at DL, so the planning begins again

    Glad that DL is such a fun place for you and your family! Good luck on the planning with your next trip!!!

    Hahaha! That is exactly how my brother is! He just absorbs everything he reads! That is so awesome that she got a little one-on-one time with Crush!! How fun!!
