What's the funniest thing that ever happened to you at WDW or another Disney park?

If you have ever seen John Pinette, the comedian, he has a bit that he does about going to a water park, where he gets stuck inside the "Giant Tube" ride it is hilarious and has stuck with me for years. I was over 350 pounds at the time of that trip and was laughing with my partner before we decided to do one of the Tube rides at BB, because it was my first time in a water park and all I could think about was when he talked about the "Tube significantly narrowed" and he had to be "plunged" out of the tube. I even joked with the CM at the top of the ride and told him that if I get stuck in the tube, just plunge me out.

Well, I got on the orange inner tube and into the "Giant Tube" I went. I was kind of enjoying it, even though the speed was quite fast. I was getting the idea that this was better than a roller coaster. Then I hit a turn that I ended up floating up pretty high on and the next thing I know, I am shooting down the tube ride feet first and on my belly. Let me tell you, that was an experience. I was able to hold onto the inner tube for a bit, but at some point the wind caused me to let go and it flew up over my head and back up the tube towards Gabby.

So now, I am almost at the bottom of the ride and laughing at myself because I realize that I am going to exit the tube like a breech birthed baby whale. I shot out half way across the exit pond area and when I stood up, there were two Life Guards there and I wasn't asked "Are you ok?", "How are you?", "What happened?", or "Do you need any help?" You know what these super concerned CM's asked me? They said, "WHERE'S THE TUBE?" My response to this was "Your precious tube will be out in a minute!" About that same time, out pops Gabby looking like a hamburger, with the big orange inner tube under her and on top of her. She immediately asked, "Honey, are you ok?" And it was at that point that the CM's said, "Yeah, are you ok, SIR?"

We still laugh when we talk about going to the water parks and inevitably, one of us will say, "Where's the tube?" To me, this is one of my all time funniest WDW park memories.

Well when my mom and I went on Crush n Gusher for the first time she couldn't figure out how to get into the tube lol. The CM was telling her to sit and I was too but she managed to bounce right off the tube and roll over onto the floor. i was trying not to laugh. I told her just sit your butt in the hole!!! She did and off we went we still talk about it LOL. She loves John Pinette and cracks up everytime she hears him talk about the water slide!!!

We did have some funny moments at water parks when we were younger. Now as an adult we dont do water parks.


Anyways, I think the funniest thing I ever witnessed happened to a complete stranger. We were walking behind a Dad and son across the bridge into Adventureland. The kid was wearing his shorts kind of low and baggy. Well wouldnt you know it, the more he walked the more they slid down his behind until they were hanging around his ankles! His boxers in full glory for anyone to see! The kid turned beat red! The Dad was laughing so hard and turned to us and said "You saw that right! I am not the only one that witnessed it right?!" The poor kid, well at least now maybe he will wear a belt?

I think one of the funniest things that we saw was last June. We were on The Great Movie Ride and were on the car for the gangster scene. When "Mugsy" appeared, she had to be at least 60 years old if not 70. I think she was in community theatre all of her life. She was TOTALLY into it! It was just so funny to watch. She wasn't the quickest moving Mugsy we had ever seen. I think she probably would have been gunned down. As we moved through the different scenes, she just got more into it, and her laugh was great. By the time we got to the Indiana Jones scene, we were wondering if she would make it up the stairs okay. It was a long trip up for her, and I wasn't sure she would make it before the recording started. It was our most memorable Great Movie Rides ever!

I'm a consumate planner when it comes to my WDW trips. So when I took my BF for his first trip there I wanted everything to be perfect!!
That included tickets for "La Nouba" at DTD. I had my bf book the tickets online telling him the time and date that fit into our ADR's.
Our tickets came in the mail and I put them away with the passports and other important things.
We show up at the theatre the night of the show (about four days into our vacation) and are both so excited to see the show.
I pull out the tickets and hand one to him. As we are waiting to get in I look down at the ticket and instantly freak out! The tickets are for the night before!!!
Somehow we had not only ordered the wrong date, but we failed to realize it and missed our showing!! We both felt so ridiculous at the time. The good news was, we went to the box office and the amazing CM got us new (even better) seats for that nights show!! We still look back at that and laugh. Everytime we get tickets now we always say "check the date!!"

This past summer, I stayed in MK until park closing and was so tired that I was having trouble focusing my eyes. I went into what I thought was a men's room and noticed that there were no urinals. My incredibly sleepy brain knew that something was wrong, but before I could put 2 and 2 together, a woman who was in there with her young daughter said to me very politely, "Excuse me, sir, but I think you went into the wrong rest room."

The daughter (who I'm guessing was maybe 5 years old) stage-whispered to her Mom in reply, "Mom, don't say that! Maybe he's a transsexual like Uncle Patty!"

And now for the heartwarming part:

The mother and I exploded in laughter -- what else was there to do? -- and then the mother explained that her brother had recently undergone MTF surgery. Her daughter understood that his name was Patty now rather than Patrick, but she couldn't bring herself to call him "Aunt Patty", so "Uncle Patty" was born.

I could tell that she was confused and upset because she thought that her mother and I had been laughing at her. I turned to the daughter and told her that I thought it was awesome that she had looked out for me and that she should tell her Uncle Patty what she had done, because it meant that she really understood how important Uncle Patty's surgery was to her. The daughter beamed, and Magical Moments were had all around.

Been there...but at a lonely movie theater with empty bathrooms (thank god). Went in with a soda and I was mad to not see anywhere to sit my drink. Then noticed that there wasn't any urinals - but nothing 'clicked' Went into a stall to do my business and found a tiny little trash can with a flat lid - perfect to put my drink. Figured out later what the little trash can was for.

But for my 'Disney funny' - My friend and I were on our last day to Epcot and I really wanted to see the American Adventure. Well is was late in the day and the only show left was set for the same time as the evening show in the lagoon. We were the only two for the AA show! However the host still went through the his entire speil, including the statement that it's a long show, so if you need to use the bathroom, you better use it now - remember, it was just the TWO of us. I could see my friend busting a gut trying not to laugh at the poor CM.

Last new year's eve, my bf and I were having dinner at Bistro de Paris at Epcot. The server was a wee bit clueless and, at one point, asked us, "So...you two are...brothers?" The maître d', who was standing at the next table, overheard. He walked over, took the server by the arm, and led him away quietly saying, "soyez pas stupide" ("don't be stupid").

When midnight came, we and many of the other guests and cast members were standing near the windows watching the fireworks. Our server was maybe 3 feet away from us. When the countdown hit zero and I kissed my bf, we heard our server loudly go, "OHHHHH!" Apparently, his brain finally made the connection.

He was all smiles and love to us during dessert/coffee. We still to this day can't figure out if he was clueless and gay or clueless and straight.
