    You know somebody is a tourist when...

    You know somebody is a tourist when...

    - They stand in at the entrance to Jungle Cruise trying to figure out the tour times when they see the sign above the entrance that says "Tours Daily".
    - They belive you really need a ticket and passport to ride Star Tours.
    - During heavy crowds they stop in the middle of a walkway to take a picture.
    - They wear cargo shorts.
    - Their Hawaiian style shirts are tucked into their cargo shirts.
    - On top of those cargo shorts, they're wearing fanny packs.
    - On top of that Hawaiian style shirt, they wear their park passport on a lanyard.
    - They wear sports sneakers.
    - when they are wearing business suits
    - when they dont wear deoderant
    - when they get in the fastpass line even though they dont have a fastpass

    Now its your turn. You think of some.

    Re: You know somebody is a tourist when...

    - when they think FastPass costs money.
    - when they wear a t-shirt with some slogan they think someone cares about.
    - when they save seats 5 hours before Fantasmic!.
    - when when they get angry at CMs who say they cannot ride together from the single-rider line.
    - when they smell like sunblock on a cloudy day
    - when they think you're a CM when you wear the gold name badge.
    - when they think walking in the direction of Splash Mountain will lead them to the park exit.
    - when they spend hard earned cash on spinny-flashy things that will never be used again after that night.

    Re: You know somebody is a tourist when...

    oh! this looks like it can be really fun.....let's see:

    *when they read a map, look at the sign to the attraction, and still asks a CM what its about...
    *when they think that they are supposed to steal the flick cards, only to give them to the wrong attraction later and completely mess with the wait times
    *when they wear sandals w/socks
    *when they wear ponchos (in the summer) on splash mountain b/c they dont want to get wet, yet they complain that its too hot
    *when they shove a credit card in the fast pass machine and dont understand why it doesnt come out
    *when they think that putting a $20 in the fast pass machine will give them unlimited passes
    *when they park their strollers blocking something, then complain to a CM that someone stole their stroller, only to be informed by the CM that it was moved to stroller parking, only so that the tourist can yell at them b/c either "there was no sign" (yes, there is), or "well, everyone else parked there, why aren't those moved??"

    ***:-) looong rant....sorry -- that last one has been bothering me for a while

    Re: You know somebody is a tourist when...

    *when they have a t-shirt on that says "Florida"
    *when they ask how much a fastpass costs
    *when they drive like idiots on I-4
    *when they develop a fear of the lane they are driving in will suddenly become a turn lane without notice
    *when they refer to WDW as Disneyland
    *when they buy everything in sight at every gift shop
    *when they are very pale and wear sock with sandals and fanny packs
    *when they have a huge backpack with everything on earth in it - just in case...
    *when they are in EPCOT, DAK, or MGM and ask "wheres the castle??"
    *when they ask if they can pick up "the blue train thingy" inside Space Mountain

    When you hear them say "Let's go to the Haunted House".
    When you hear them say "Let's go on Auto-topia"
    When you hear them say "Lets go on Star Wars"
    And especially
    When you hear them say "Let's go to California Adventure"

    You might be a tourist if...

    ...You've ever asked a CM to show you "Magic Mountain" on the map.

    ...You've ever berated a CM for prices set by TDA

    ...You think the rules don't apply to you.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: You know somebody is a tourist when...

    You know somebody is a tourist when:
    - they are smoking in a non-smoking section (has it been banned at Disneyland yet?)
    - they save a spot for the parade 90 minutes before
    - ask how to get into Sleeping Beauty's Castle


    I guess that technically I'm a tourist - but even if I still lived in So Cal I'd proudly wear a Disneyland shirt into the park (I have a couple great old ones).

    Re: You know somebody is a tourist when...

    when you're in tomorrowland, starring at space mountain, yet ask where space mountain is

    when you think that stitch's great escape is space mountain/a rollercoaster

    when you think that stitch's great escape is the blue trainy thingy

    when you think that the blue trainy thingy does loops (yes, that's why there's no restraint system...)

    You ask how Disney built Disneyland around the Matterhorn.
