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

    I would say that my story is a little bit of all 3.

    It was a September evening when the park was not as packed. We were waiting to watch the fireworks with some friends we were introduced to during the day. They are cast members in entertainment so you can imagine how energetic they can be. One in particular thought it would be funny if he wore a woman's wig and pretend to act like a run way model. After a few sashays down mainstreet we stopped before the hub and wanted to watch the fireworks show.

    This is when it gets interesting . The only person standing in front of us waiting for the show, was an older lady that had the same hair style and color as the wig he was wearing (grey with curls). He decided it would be funny if he imitated every gesture she did but 4 feet behind her. This went on for 20 minutes unnoticed. Then out of the blue a random guest approached us and said, "You should be ashamed of yourself, acting like a disgusting transsexual with children present will burn your soul for all eternity in hell." After that we stood in shock as she continued to hurl insults and religious text.

    It seemed that the woman we were imitating heard all she said and decided to defend us. We felt bad for what we did, so we let the woman know that we were imitating her. She actually found this hilarious and joined in to runway model with my friend in the wig. That's when the religious mom came back to use every profanity laced sentences she could come up with. We couldn't have any more of her abuse. So found the lead in the Hub who was a good friend of mine. He informed security and the officer wanted us to talk with the woman. She continued to hurl insults in front of security and her 2 little girls no younger than 6.

    To end this long story she had to be removed from the park as she started to throw a tantrum and bang her fists on nearby trash bins. We went back to watch the fireworks and have a good discussion and laugh with the woman who we continued to imitate. She said that we made her night and ended up riding a few rides together so she was not alone.

When I asked him what that was about he told me that in some countries it is acceptable for young men to do this as long as they dispose of it later.


    I guess this would be an ugly story lol.
    You wouldn't believe how many stories I have of inappropriate peeing from my time working for the mouse, including someone walking backstage and peeing in a planter IN FRONT OF a (clearly marked) cast member restroom. I guess they thought they could break the rules by going backstage but they weren't brave enough to break the rules by going into a CM bathroom...

    Thirty-one years ago, while standing in line for Thunder Mountain with my dad and sister, a woman in line near us attempted kidnapping me, insisting I was her son.

    I had no idea who she was. My dad wasn't pleased, and has a temper, although he was more alarmed than anything. My sister probably was hoping she would make off with me, since she's older, and wasn't happy about this little kid who had taken her parents from her.

    Security came from seemingly nowhere and swarmed around us. They escorted her out of line, and most likely either out of the park, or to Disney jail to await Disney sentencing.

    I was only six years old at the time, but I do remember it happening. I seriously don't know what came over her, or why she wanted to take me. I'm not anything spectacular.

    The only thing that happened to me that I can think of was being in Toontown and walking down a hallway that leads to the backstage area because there was a Hidden Mickey in it- you didn't actually see backstage if you were looking at it (the pathway has a corner in it), but it looks close enough that a CM stopped me. I heard this "SIR??... Could you come over here for a minute?" I pretty much immediately figured out he thought I was going to wander backstage, so thankfully I had my Hidden Mickey Guidebook with me, and showed him and another CM what I was looking at.

    At WDW I had two separate incidences. At one point I was at Rope Drop to head to Space Mountain, but accidentally went THROUGH the Castle, having missed the turn-off (it was my first day in the park, so I thought the "hub" was on the other side). Upon realizing I was in the Anna & Elsa line instead, I went around the right hand side of the castle to the correct path... only to see a CM guarding a whole bunch of people behind another rope. On the other side from where I was.

    I actually had to walk up to the guy and ask him if I was supposed to be on the other side of the rope . He was shocked to see me, and flagged down a higher-up, and I told both of them that there was nobody and no gate/rope blocking access to this pathway from the side of the castle. Effectively, had I been not stopped to talk to him, I would have been able to sneak around the park before they dropped all the ropes . We all thought it was pretty funny.

    Another day, I was there at closing (the fireworks had just ended), and realized the pile-up of people trying to exit through Main Street was too huge, so I went over to the Tomorrowland side instead. I wandered around a bit, passing few exiting guests, while taking pictures of an empty lit-up TL (a rare occurrence), when a CM saw me, asked me if I was waiting for someone, and when I told her I was just looking around, she used her best "Angry Teenage Girl" voice (and stern face to match) to go all "Sir- the park is CLOSED! Please make your way to the exit!"

    I laughingly told this to my "Keys to the Kingdom" guide a while later, and he was horrified and super-apologetic ("Oh, I'm SO SORRY you had that experience!"). I had to tell him that I thought it was pretty funny- I mean, I'D have thought I was trying to sneak around after-hours, too! I work retail, and have had to use that tone more than once, too, so I "got it", and wasn't all offended.

    Oh, I've also been on two rides that shut down and needed evacuation- Indiana Jones & Haunted Mansion. I actually love stuff like that, as you get to see a side of the ride that only CMs usually get to see. I mean, sitting in the graveyard for 20 minutes wasn't that much fun, but WALKING through it? How many guests get to do THAT? What's funny is that a Tour Guide actually told me that people usually COMPLAIN about having to do that, since it "ruins the magic" for them or something. I mean, do they think they're actually on the Last Crusade, or in a real haunted mansion?

    I see a LOT of screaming, crying children in the parks (I'm continuously astonished that someone would bring children to the parks... even though they're practically DESIGNED for little kids!), but the only really upsetting one for me was watching some woman at Downtown Disney (Florida) scream at and browbeat what looked to be a pouting mentally-retarded teenage boy for nearly losing an expensive phone, then SLAPPING HIM across the head! The kid got up and made a fist at her like he was going to punch her, but she called his bluff and insulted him for his bluster, leaving him to storm off in a huff. His dad showed up and the two talked about what he did- I don't know if the kid ever wandered back. I mean, YIKES.

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

    I just remembered another funny/sad/sick story.

    I just finished eating a full Steak and Chicken nacho meal at white water snacks. After I was done, I thought it would be good to wash it down with a Monster energy drink. Not knowing at the time that energy drinks irritate my stomach. I continued back to the park. This is when it get sour.

    My friends wanted a dessert so they got some cake and brownies on mainstreet. They had bought me a brownie and I could not say no since it was a treat for me. I scarfed the whole thing down. 10 minutes later I started to feel nauseous so I sat down near thunder mountain. It got worse and I started to get dizzy. I decided to make my way to first aid. That was the longest trip it seemed and I needed a friend to keep me standing and continue to first aid.

    When I got there they put me in the back beds and gave me a bucket. Which I filled. I had to be wheeled out by security to my car, which my friend drove to the 15 minute drop off zone. I felt so miserable that night and now I never drink energy drinks.

    Not the back stage area I would want to see. At least now you know about the energy drinks.
    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

    We've been evacuated from Pirates and almost from Indy before, too! I LOVE when it happens! I love when out-of-the-ordinary stuff happens. It makes for great memories!!! LOL
