In November, 2009 I was at the Tower of Terror waiting for the room to fill and the introduction video to start. I was making idle chat with a friend on the upcoming football games that weekend and heard a mysterious, dry voice state that Pittsburgh was going to beat West Virginia. It was ToT' bellhop.

Our 1st MNSSHP Dh was dressed up as Prince Charming and I was dressed as Snow White as was our 2 yr old.

Cinderella`s step sisters came running up to Dh screaming their heads off. We stopped and looked and they said Prince Charming does Cinderella know you are out with Snow White ??? And then proceeded to exclaim about how much they liked his mustache and goatee. LOL Dh loved it. The Step Mother just stood there giving us her famous disapproving look LOL

PLUS he never holds his hands up anymore. This guy was maybe 5'5" so not that tall. He said he was terrified of getting his hands chopped off.

EDIT: I should mention that there were NO small children around when we were chatting. He was just confiding in me and my friend.
Funny, that's exactly what a CM friend of mine said as well. He has worked at DLR for over 25 years, started out in rides. He said he rode SM once with the lights on and has never rode with his hands above his head again!

Jasmine is my favorite princess, so when I met her at the princess dinner in Norway, I had to get a picture with her. I told her she was my favorite and that I had gotten married to "her song"(A Whole New World). She told me she did, too, so I told her I knew that. Then she said in her own voice (not the character voice) "No, I really did!". I thought that was so funny!

I was working with another CM outside at Animal Kingdom and a family approached us on the walkway with a stroller holding a backpack as the child was walking.

The CM said "Hold it right there folks! I'm gonna need to you let that baby out of that bag, it is too hot today for that!"

The guests looked confused but then started cracking up

One of our favorites was on the Jungle Cruise.
Our skipper was named Doug, as he was going through his usual jokes, he suddenly yelled out SQUIRREL and acted as if he was going to jump off the boat after it. The reference went over some people's heads, but since one of my kids favorite movies is UP, they were rolling.
BTW, there actually WAS a real squirrel by the water, Doug followed up by telling everyone it was an elusive man eating amazon squirrel.

We had a very late dinner reservation at CRT, and my little guy was wiped out. By the time Belle made it to our table, he was sleeping on the banquet between dh and I, mostly hidden from view. Belle walked up to the table, saw ds, and gasped. She told my daughters, "Girls, you have to be more careful with those wands! You've put a sleeping spell on your brother!" One of our favorite moments from that trip.

I wonder if that squirrel is any relation to the rare african killer duck I saw.

On our honeymoon, my hubby and I were wearing just married buttons. Most of the CMs congratulated us, but the one at HM said, my condolences. Loved it!

Not exactly what

they said but what they did.

We usually watch the evening parade near the end of the route where you cross over to Splash and BTMMR. The CMs keep a path open for guests to cross over. As the parade gets closer people jockey for position.

One night that same thing was happening. One of the CMs asked the crowd to name all of the Disney animated features with one word titles.

It worked as people forgot about positioning and tried to answer her question.

We were staying at the Beach Club and were heading back to the hotel through the international gateway. I had just been to the bakery in France and bought myself some kind of chocolate yummy pastry "to go" to enjoy back at the hotel.

Well, as I walked past the cm at the gate he stopped me and pointed to the dessert and said "I'm sorry miss, you can't take food out of the park", I had no idea if it was some new rule or whatever. So, I said that I'd eat it quick right there whilst sitting on a bench. He told me that wasn't allowed. I was a bit miffed but asked if I had to throw it out. He said, "no, you have to give it to me" So I handed it over, and the other cm's were laughing and then they all kind of said "haaaa, he's just kidding you!!!" He gave me back my dessert. I felt like such a moron!

On a cool morning at MK that was threatening rain, my friend and I got in the tiny line to meet Alice and the Mad Hatter. I had on jeans with ripped holes and a Boston Red Sox hat (I'm from Massachusetts) and when I approached them, the Mad Hatter asked me if I had fallen through a "cheese grater" because of the state of my pants. He also asked where in MA I was from, and when I told him, he jokingly mocked the name of my town with the way anyone from out of state says it. I asked him how he knew that (as I don't live in a famous town) and he wouldn't tell me!

On the same day, I had on a birthday button, and Pocahontas told me, quite seriously, to enjoy being young, as when I get to be her age, I'll have to start "lying about" my age.
