Wow, I have never heard of any of this beofre, but it is very interesting. But I have a question about the tatoo man....why is that something that stands out? Just because he has tatoos?

It's because he has SO many Disney tattoos. And tries to show off as many as possible.

We were gently warned about him at the start of the CP. Nothing bad, but Disney has a clothing policy that even men have to wear shirts in the parks at all times. We were given a heads up that sometimes he likes to try and take off his shirt to display even more tattoos so you'd have to go and tell him to put his shirt back on. (the warning wasn't totally about him - but about all men that try and take off the shirt because they're hot, and he was an example of someone easily recognizable that tries to do it)

Gotcha. I was wondering about that one. Yeah, I dont want to see any guy at Disney with his shirt off - Unless maybe Capt. Jack.

Sounds like Disney Cast Member Performers to me. They do the strangest things in the strangest places........Like the street performers at Disney Studios.

I don't know anything about the towell baby couple, but I do know about the Teddy Bear lady. Her name is Lynn and she and her husband would come to the GF in the afternoons to listen to the piano and ochestra. Her husband passed away just before Christmas. She still comes to GF by herself. She has 4 daughters who don't see her very often. I've spoken to her. She's a little eccentric, but very nice. Kind of sad, really.

I've never seen them, but your post really made me laugh. Thanks!

I don't know anything about the towel baby, but I rode EE sitting next to the yeti man. He showed me a hidden Mickey, talked about the ride, and when the ride was over, he gave me a T-shirt. I thought he was giving out a Disney T shirt, so I thanked him, and walked off the ride. When I actually looked at the shirt, I saw it had a big mountain background and said "Yeti-man.com" and "I rode with the yeti man!" Cracked me up!

The towel baby story makes me sad-I feel bad for that couple.

I haven't met any of them in person, but I have visited the website of the tattoo guy a couple of times. His house is SO Disney... the only thing he still needs is a monorail running around it!


A couple of years ago, when Beauty and the Beast was re-released in IMAX-format, I went to see it. In the theater was a woman, middle-aged, and she had bought two tickets. One for her, and on the other seat were about a dozen of dolls, all dressed like Belle. While waiting for the movie to start, she talked to the dolls, brushed their hair, ...
Really weird.


ETA: The last time I visited Disneyland, I had been reading/ posting on another Disney-related message board. Lits of people there lived near DL and meet there regularly, and I said I was also coming to the meeting that was going on while I was there. So, comes the day/ time the meeting is planned, and I go to the "meeting point", and when I saw those people, I turned around and went away. Some of them were SO freaky Disney-fans, so over the top, I was kind of embarassed to be seen with them.
To me, there are limits to how much "fan" one can be, and they were crossing those limits by far.

I was just there in October and her husband was with her. Thats a shame.

To surprise you, I work at Publix part time and there is an elderly woman I work with who takes the free balloons home all the time. She has at any moment 100 or so. She cuddles with the ones at work and calls them her babies. It's kinda cute.
