    Overheard at Disney World

    Okay - I'm not sure if this qualifies as a game in the technical sense - but reading the stupid question game reminded me of some really strange things that I've heard people say or ask in WDW - sort of "Here's Your Sign" (Comedian Bill Engvall) moments. Let me know if I should post elsewhere but I'll start off - I'm sure the CM's out there could really share some doozies.


    Overheard in Hollywood studios - a mother to her child -" This is NOT the place to be playing around!"

    (My family stopped dead in our tracks and started laughing.)

    The all time classic, gets me every single time and probably really irks the CM's:\\

    "Excuse me, what time does the three o'clock parade start?"

    Yep, even I have heard and been amazed by this comment. Like WDW operates on an alternate time schedule. Bizarre, funny and kind of sad.
    P.U.S.H.-A mantra MOST will not understand.

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    Ok I thought there was a thread like this out there but can't find it anywhere so here's my contribution.

    Overheard at the Magic Kingdom before Wishes: "Yeah if you're a DVC member you can reserve the room at the castle now."

    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    Not stupid, just cool to see someone obviously from the WC.

    Not necessarily from the west coast.

    Re: Overheard at Disney World

    For years and years I've heard guests explaining to their families where Walt's apartment is located in Cinderella Castle in a know it all voice adding this is where his family use to stay. Me:
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    In the pre-show for Rockin' Roller Coaster:

    10-year old-ish girl: "Daddy, what ride is this?"

    Dad: "Calm down, its not a ride, we are just going to see the band..."


    Pretty sure that kid has been in therapy ever since...

    That is absolutely amazing and totally sounds like something my Dad would've said to a younger me!!

    While standing in line at TOT, my husband & I heard a young British boy, while pointing to one of the busts in the lobby, ask his father..."Daddy, is that Jesus?"...Neither of us know what the father's response was because we were laughing hysterically yet discretely : )
