I'm interested in hearing from others about Disneyland experiences that have led you into forming spontenious friendships with people that you didn't know at the time.
While trodding about on Tom Sawyer Island once, I met a family w/kids that started up a conversation with me. We all had great senses of humor. They were particularly captivated by the view of the Splash Mountain log vehicles (at the bottom of the briar patch) when I pointed it out to them. Many people don;t know about this as it can only be seen from the island.
Anywho, the family ended up walking with me to the Adventureland Disneyland Railroad, and, among other things, picked my brain for good rides and shows that their kids would enjoy. We ended up riding some of the rides together in Toon Town and Fantasyland. There's been several occasions where I've formed friendships with folks while standing in line for an attraction. I've even made friends on Disneyland trams.
During a MiceChat meet last December, I physically met everyone there for the first time. I hadn't even met several of the MiceChatters on line. I enjoyed getting to know everyone better, and hung out with many of them. We ennded the day with an ice cream social at the Bleu Bayou Resataurant.
A few years ago, I ran into Martin Spanjers of 8 Simple Rules (To Date My Teenage Daughter). I had a long conversation with him about everything under the sun. He told me that he loves both Disneyland and DCA.
Any interesting stories out there?
