    No specific incidents at the park are coming to mind now, but I know for sure I have MANY times in everyday life. Most recently, Belle said "How about that Mr. Doubting Mustafa!" to me in public. Yesterday, we broke out into "Prince Ali" while watching my baby sister run around after church. Last year, I did when I gave a ride home to two friends after school and had a Disney cd in my car, my Mickey dice hanging from my rear view mirror, and my Princess Minnie antenna topper - all I need is the license plate cover that has the Disney Princesses on it and says something about "looking for Prince Charming" - well, I guess that wouldn't be too good of an idea now that my mom is driving my car since her's is broken .

    I now have the WDW walk and stare!!! You get it after going so many times that you are determined to get as many rides in as you can. You can also get the WDW stare and it helps you to see when large crowds of people will move so you can cut through them on you're "I'm on a mission from Walt" walk!!! LOL
    See YOU at Disney World,

    I guess I am a certified fanatic as you will usually find me leaving the DW in the dust as I briskly walk from attraction to attraction, or my aptly as my DW told my MIL after our most recent visit:

    "No way can he have any heart problems the way he keeps going from sunrise to sunset. We must have walked a hundred miles in the heat during the week. I'm exhausted and he can't wait to go back."

    As far as singing, or doing a little jig, that's "normal" for any WDW fanatic!

    Occasionally, I will break into a ghastly chorus of "Grim Grinning Ghosts," either on the ride or sitting at home...or both!

    I walk around the park sometimes singing either the Pirates of the Carribean song YO-HO, or the carousel of progress song.

    another one of mine: while getting in the boats for Pirates, we started an impromptu conversation between Jack Sparrow and Capt. Barbossa.

    Funny story about that...I was in the front row of a boat on PotC before the ride started, and there was a lady in the back row of the boat directly in front of us...I started singing the song, and I guess she had never been to WDW before because she turned around and looked offended!

    She might have been if you sing like Lou!

    Interesting... usually the WDW/DL addict walk tends to be a lot slower paced and more relaxed than the tourist walk. You get the more relaxed WDW walk after going so many times, you realize that you don't need to rush to do everything you want in a week's time -- even if that means doing every ride. Seems it's quite the opposite the norm among here.

    Have I proven I am obsessive? Of course. Howso? Well, how's starting a sing-along in a long queue made up of nothing but obscure songs from long-defunct attractions sound? Not surprisingly, I was just about the only one singing.

    It was the Test Track queue. Easy to get bored waiting in that montrosity.

    I have. I get people so excited on the monorails and buses by giving the spiels adding even more excitement to them. and in between spiels give history of the parks and the entire World. people get a kick out of it and once I was asked by a CM if I worked undercover for DW. AND, you're right Frumious...I have noticed that being a maniac I do walk slower than some of the tourist. (although it changes when I'm with someone.)
