OMG This is the funniest thing I ever heard at Disney!
 
As we were walking from the bus stop at MK toward the park entrance/exits, a Disney Security Guard was telling a large group of females:

"No mam, there's no monorail to the Super 8 Motel."

They clearly either did not like or did not understand what he was saying to them, as this was followed up by:

"No mam, there is no bus either to the Super 8 Motel."

At that moment I almost wished I was wearing a Depends, I laughed so hard.

And lastly, there was this:

Dh was in line with dd for the water slide at our resort. While in line, some small boy was regaling dh his interpretation of exactly how tall the water slide was, then proceeded to ask dh how long he was staying. Dh told him 8 days. The little boy replied, "We're staying 8 days too!!! Five thousand dollars!!!"

Out of the mouths of babes........

Moved dd18 into dorm today, thanks for distraction.

At poly in May I heard a guy ask where monorail to HS was. Then ask to see a map to "get his bearings":confused3

Thanks for the chuckle,needed that!

:rotfl:Yeah, I know I shouldn't laugh at other people, but really, a little planning goes a long way!

Never heard something that funny, but a VERY excited Spanish speaking women on the bus to the Magic Kingdom started to scream "MICKEY MOOSE! MICKEY MOOSE! MICKEY MOOSE!" as the bus turned into the bus area. I almost peed myself laughing. Mouse, Moose, whatever. She was very happy to be there! haha

I never understand why ppl don't research before going? Even with non Disney travel we research the heck out of it b/c we just aren't comfortable going in blind!

That is just so sweet. Can you image being that excited to see Micky Mouse/Moose? :thumbsup2

You know she stood in line to meet Mickey Mouse/Moose and I bet she cried when Mickey Mouse/Moose gave her a hug.

I was getting on a bus at all star sports behind a couple from Italy. When the door open they walked up the steps and stopped to ask the bus driver how much it cost to go to Magic Kingdom. He said, " nothing." So they asked again thinking they must not have understood. He explained them it was free. They proceeded to sit down and I sat across from them. They looked at me with happy amazement and said while shaking their heads in disbelief, "Wow, Disney!" I smiled back and said yes WDW is a magical place and all transportation is included in your stay, boats, monorail, and bus. They looked so happy! :)

We were at AKL, trying to get back to the MK. WE had huge bus issues. First the driver couldn't get the dang bus to kneel..he finally did. He was able to finally get the ramp down for the ecv bound guest that needed it. The bus filled up pretty quickly. Well...he couldn't get it to 'unkneel'!!! We sat there for about 15 mins while he tried to get it to an upright position. We finally all had to get off the bus.
So, as we stood there, waiting for another bus to be sent along, I got into a conversation with a group of older guests...probably in their 70's, very well dressed. Well, they told me they were on their way to the GF for dinner. Oh, how nice I said. Were they taking the monorail or the boat over from MK? "Oh, we're staying on the bus. It's raining and we don't want to get wet!'' No, I told them, the bus wouldn't go to MK. Oh yes it does they said...with quite the attitude!!! I told them that buses do NOT go from resort to resort, unless they are on the same route. And the AKL was not on the same route as the GF!!! They would have to take either the monorail or the boat to GF. The woman started telling me, quite loudly, that she has been to WDW many times and she understands how the buses work and they will be taking this bus to the GF and not getting wet!!! Okay I said. So, the new bus comes along. The group gets on and takes seats right up front. When we get to the MK, as I am getting off, I hear that woman yelling at the bus driver, telling him that he has to get them to the GF!!! She knows this bus is supposed to go there, so lets get going!!!
OMG...it was hysterical. I tried to help, but sometimes people just don't want the help.

I don't get it either. I had some lady at the poly pool a few weeks ago ask me what DHS was like and what her dds would like. I have no clue they are your dds. Geesh!

Obviously if someone asked me before they went I wouldn't have a problem with it but this lady had already been there for a few days. Did you look at the map and read about it?

I have two from my group/trip so far: on ME at 2:30 a.m. (don't ask) going to the resort, the movie started and as soon as Mickey came on my DH loudly exclaimed, "Well that's the biggest squirrel I've ever seen!!!" :lmao: I was wondering who thought he was serious...

The other DS is very timid, and doesn't like thrill rides. My two and his sister convinced him to ride SM. He screamed his head off the whole time. When we were leaving, he planted his feet and clenched his fists and yelled, "That was NOTHING like Goofy's Barnstormer!!!!":rotfl2:

I too do not understand the lack of a little research. You are spending a lot of money on a Disney vacation. We were on a bus with a family that had a little girl all dressed up in her princess best. The mom said they were having breakfast with Cinderella in her castle. I asked what time their ressie was. She told me "I don't believe in reservations since I never know what time I want to do something". With a shocked face I asked "you don't have a reservation?' She was like no, we are just going to go when we feel like it. I let it go because the little girl was so excited, but my sons were like -they are never gonna get in! I felt sorry for the little girl if they didn't get in due to mom's lack of planning. I know some people have gotten a walk-up-but to get your child all dressed up and excited seemed cruel without a ressie.

I never understand the laughing at others because they aren't as informed as the DISers :confused3

Not everyone realizes the planning that is involved in a WDW vacation, remember you were all once newbies in that dept. How did you know you had to plan? The only reason I did was because I have a family member who frequents WDW and warned me. If I didn't I wouldn't have a clue. Not everyone knows to search the internet for WDW gurus.
FTR, I don't plan and I try to inform myself but I'm sure I don't have 1/4 of the knowledge some of you have. I'm so glad that if you over hear me asking a "stupid" question it will force you into hysterics. :)

Not everyone has the luxury of dropping a few thousand dollars (park tickets, resort, flights) on a multi-day trip and not need a plan.
