My mom used to tell my sister-in-law that we should tell her little kids that the mall was Disneyland. That way, it would be easier and cheaper just to take them to the mall whenever they wanted to go to Disneyland.
My mom also said the park closed after the fireworks, but she added "and if we dont hurry, they will lock us in!". Somehow, she tried to convay that was somehow a BAD thing. She did have gradnight at the park when she has in HS, and she DID get locked in. Maybe something happened.. Ow ya. ... Me.
Ahhh! I'm becoming one of those Moms. I've told my kids the park closes after the fireworks, I've even told them there aren't any fireworks today so we could leave early.
Some rides have been "closed" at time too. That's only a few of the lies I've told. I guess they'll write a book about me someday. At least I never told them anything would hurt them or something wasn't scary. I've been honest about all those things.
I was told that if I was bad, that the Pirates on PotC would take me and put me in the well. I was also told that Harrison Ford really helped us through the Temple of the Forbidden Eye. And then there was the time I was to afraid to ride Star Tours and I was told that you lose and the empire wins and we would be taken captive if we didn't get out of the station in time. Yeah, I'm super gullible.
Remember, Dreams come true!... and mermaids are hot, even on Halloween.
My parents told me I was driving the boat when we rode the motor boats.
My mom did too... (I was on the Gummi Bears version)
it took me years to figure out that it was on a track.
I was with my mom and she said I was very good and driving the boat... while my sister and dad were screaming at my brother who was in another boat behind us.
"You're gonna kill us!"
"Look out for the rocks!"
"Your sister is doing better than us."
Poor boy was crying.
She gives my sister and I each 2 dollars and we went to the Monorail station to buy them only to find out that was a dirty lie. We lived (and I still do) right down the street from Disneyland and my mom used the 1 and a half hours we were gone to wrap our Christmas presents (yes...she sent us walking there one cold december afternoon). When we got back we called her a liar. She asked for her 4 bucks back. She was a little ticked when she found out my sister and I each added $0.50 and bought roundtrips on the Monorail (not sure if they even still do that). I guess in the big picture my sister and I won...twice!
