Smile My most embarrassing moment at Disney, share yours!!

Hello all, new to the boards and joined because of the podcast show.
Posted this on a different site but wanted to try this here....

Recently, I was married at the Walt Disney World resort and had a great time. We chose the Boardwalk and had a fantastic experience with the ceremony, cake cutting, and photography.

To be honest, most everything was great except for one moment that was very awkward.... The after-after moments of our wedding... allow me to explain.

Staying at the AKL, we were transported back via limo to our honeymoon room where we were going to change, and also "change" into our evening attire for the dinner that we had arranged for our wedding guests. Being the groom, and not in the wedding gown being swooned over by other guests, decided to double check the room and make sure it was all good before my bride entered (even though I had already been checked in etc). This was a good idea as that very day was, unbeknownst to me, the day that new mattresses were being installed in the rooms.

Upon entering the room, which was opened already, I was met by a woman that looked to be from mouse keeping. I said hello politely and asked how long they would be, because I was just married and my new wife and I would like the room. She didn't appear to speak the best English, and so I tried my best to communicate with her. After a few minutes, she went and got the crew of men handling the mattresses, and they swapped them out.

No harm, no foul, and I think everything is good when they leave the room.

WRONG.

Going back to find my wife, whose being photographed, etc., We enter the room together and I decided to lock BOTH locks on the door. Normally I would just do the bolt, but this time I instinctually did the manual "chain/hook" lock as well. This later proved to be smart.

After awhile, my new wife and I were "changing" and the door suddenly starts to make clicking noises! Eyes wide, we wonder what in the world is that, thinking maybe its just an excited child going to the wrong room. NOPE. The door clicks again and this time UNLOCKS AND OPENS UP, getting caught by the manual "chain/hook" lock at the top that I used.

Disney mouse keeping / service essentially had just entered WITHOUT KNOCKING on my door, directly after my wedding. Completely flabbergasted at the idea, I was shocked at the unlocking clicks, and relieved when I realized that the "BANG" of the door being caught on the "chain/hook" didn't allow them to actually enter.

In summery, my wedding night nearly turned into a exhibition.

I really haven't figured out how to tell Disney about this concern without making it more embarrassing, and as time goes on I wonder if it is too late.

Anyway, that's my most embarrassing moment so what's yours?

At Narcoossee's I accidentally went into the men's wash room. I was in a hurry and never noticed my mistake. There I was in a stall when 2 men walked in! Pulled up my legs quickly and made a mad dash out after they left, hoping no one else would be entering as I was leaving

I also fell in the UK after just coming out of the pub there, but I hadn't anything to drink. We were just asking directions. I passed out from heat stroke and ended up with a badly sprained ankle and bruised everywhere. I ended up in a wheelchair for the rest of our trip and I looked like I'd been in a car wreck. Nothing was broken thankfully. I got lots of unwanted attention too as I frightened a lot of people apparently as they came running over to me. I refused to walk near that pub on our last trip, perhaps being a bit superstitious. On that same trip my son also fell in the UK. It was not our lucky country!

It was raining pretty hard when we got to Sci Fi to eat during our first trip. I asked the check in CM if the movie and our reservation had been cancelled due to the rain....

No. It had not been lmao. I'll never forget the look of humor/pity/confusion she gave me!

i was just done with my shower and heard a knock on my door.

i wrapped a towel around me and tried to look out of the peek hole to see who was there.

stupid me opened the door as i couldn't see who was out there.

i took a step forward and the door shut closed.


the towel was caught in the door, but still partially around me.

Oh my, that one is priceless.

I remember the first time I rode Splash Mountain it was a very hot and very humid day in August. I managed to not get wet with the exception of one area and one area only... You got it, right where it looked like I just had a bladder failure. I was wearing a pair of white shorts and was showing a little more of the "Haines your way" than I was comfortable with.

I ended up in the mens room and was standing over the hand dryer desperately drying off the ever so embarassing wet area by standing on my toes and leaning into the blower. There were several guys that walked past and I'll never forget a kid about 10 years old said to his father as he passed by me, "that adds new meaning to a weenie roast."

On our most recent trip this past June, I had just started taking a new medication. It turns out I didn't respond well to some of the side effects, and my blood pressure became too low. I passed out in the restroom at Epcot. I was absolutely mortified when I came to!

Dd had run out to refill her mug while I hopped in the shower. When I got out, I heard a knock at the door. Figuring it was dd, I opened the door while still in my towel. I just grabbed the handle and opened it enough for it to unlock, then I walked away to finish getting ready. A minute or two later, I see Mousekeeping standing there. She was checking to see if we wanted our room cleaned.

Well I guess I can share mine too! Nov 2011 we were staying at POR. I was 7 weeks pregnant and the morning sickness just started. I went into our bathroom and say on the side of the tub cause I felt like I had throw up. Well I slipped and fell backwards into the tub and was stuck! My DH and kids came running in snapping pictures! They will never let me forget it and sent the pic all over!

Our first trip to WDW we went to the Magic Kingdom as our first park. We had walked a little ways in the park and all of a sudden I heard some woman scream 'OMG, it's Gepetto....Debbie, it's Gepetto!' Then I realized the screamer was me. Apparently I was really excited to be at Disney. I was 60 at the time.
