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"

Thanks for the chuckle,needed that!

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!

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?

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

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

Later,
Dan

70's to 1997 too many trips to count.

Disney is a lens that focuses on people.
Sometimes it exposes the worst.
Most of the time it highlights the best.

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 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!!!" 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!!!!"

I admit it, before my first trip I didn't get it, luckly my roommate did and she did all the planning while I made snide comments about "planning it to death" and "just show up and ride rides", well I learned and now the planning, to me anyway, is part of the fun. Its me who is online at 4am MT 180 days out to make ADRs, she makes the spread sheets and I fill them in, I am the one that constantly looks for deals on airfare and car rentals. We are both constantly doing more research, trying to find out things we didn't know. I am blessed with a pretty good sense of direction and ability to understand transportation issues so I get to decide how we get places (car, bus, monorail, boat, combination). Of coarse that also means I have to do all the driving.
I now help co-workers plan their trips, in many cases, their spouses who I might not have even met will call me to ask questions.
If I hear someone at WDW that obviously has wrong information or is confused I am more than willing to help out, but I do admit, afterwards I might chuckle about it.

And yes, the OPs story about the monorail and Super 8 was funny. LOL

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!

You know, I just knew that someone out there would have a problem with my post.

It's not about how much money people have or don't have. I don't think too many folks would really believe that the monorail travels off Disney property to the Super 8, Walmart or IHOP. If you do, then I really have no words for that.

For goodness sake!!!! Lighten up! It was funny!!

I help folks all day long who clearly are on their first trip here. I would take all the time in the world (and have) to give folks directions and any help they ask for.

I don't think I am all knowing by any stretch of the imagination. But hearing that Security Guard say, "No mam, there's no monorail to the Super 8 motel" was hilarious.
