When my niece and I were little, the whole pin trading thing had just taken off. There was a set of pins my mother wanted and she had all of them but one (Tigger in a Safari hat on a green square background, I will never forget).

We had been looking for this pin for days and one evening we were in Magic Kingdom for dinner. We decided to stop into Sir Mickey's on the way to see if by any chance a CM in there had the pin on their lanyard.

Sure enough a CM working the register had the pin on their lanyard. We were ahead of my parents and when we saw the pin we both screamed at the top of our lungs, "He's got it! Mom, he's got the Tigger pin!"

Turns out the He was a She. And she glared at us as we yelled out to my parents.

We both ran out of the store as fast as we could and waited for my parents to come out.

Reading all these funny stories has reminded me of something happened to my family at Coronado Springs. As you all know, the resort is huge and so spread out. My mom, daughter, and I went in the gift shop and my dad was to meet us in the lobby. He never showed up, and I was pacing around looking for him. A CM came up to me and asked what I was looking for. I said that I couldn't find my dad. He assumed that it was an elderly man who was lost and before I could tell him otherwise, he got on the radio and put out a full alert for a lost older man and took off in his golf cart....my dad was only in his early 50's and had full mental capabilities. We finally found him near the pool looking for us (he thought we had agreed to meet there). He was so upset/mortified that the CM thought he was lost that he turned red and kept saying "I wasn't lost, they were lost" which made him sound like a confused old man. The CM still thought that he was really lost! We could not stop laughing and spent the next several days pretending to call a code over the radio for a lost person.

I can imagine my kids doing this for me. My sense of direction is awful.

When I took my family a few years ago to the Boardwalk (DVC member), everyone got there before I did. My plane was late for some reason, I don't even remember the details. :-) I walked in to the lobby to be greeted by my very happy family -- my father had evidently requested a wheelchair for my mother and the CM responded with "oh, that will only cost you your first born son" so dad called for my brother to come over and be exchanged! I remember being rather grateful I'd not been there, to be honest. LOL!

Haha, I felt like that for about 10 minutes but then I realized that I'd most likely never see her again so it's been a pin trading frenzy for me ever since.

I do however, look at anyone's name tag before calling them a he or a she now. Lesson learned the hard way!

My most embarrassing moment came at the hands of my BIL who was 20 at the time. 5 of us had gone to the AK early just to hit the big rides. Unbeknownst to me, he had decided it would be a good idea to have two, yes two, pancake breakfasts before we leave the resort.

We reach the AK and everything is fine. Once through EE and we're all good and ready to go again. The second go through we start up the big hill, I look over at my BIL and notice he isn't looking to well. He manages to hang on through the entire ride and as we're pulling in to the station to get out of the car he relaxes. Unfortunately, EE comes to a pretty quick stop about 20 yards from where you get out of the car and when we hit that stop he jerks forward, pressing his stomach against the lap bar. I here a nasty sound and look up to see brown goo oozing out of the corners of his closed mouth. "Spit it out" is the only thing I can say, but he just shakes his head. I tell him again as the brown goo reaches his chin but again he shakes his head. So, we hit the station, he jumps out of the car and starts running through the gift shop, trying to make it to a bathroom.

He managed to keep the pancakes and syrup down all the way to the front entrance to the gift shop, the spot with the absolute most traffic, at which point he lets both orders of pancakes fly, right in the doorway, splashing on several shoes and legs. I could have crawled under one of the rocks out front and just died. To this day my family still calls it "Expedition Pancakes".

In 2006 I took the whole family down to WDW. We were in Animal kingdom and waiting in line at Kilimanjaro Safari . We were almost to the front of the line and I overhear my brother in law tell his wife that he really has to go pee. But doesn't want to get out of the line. So we board the truck and start our way . About halfway through he asked me if it gets any smoother. I tell him no. Anybody who has gone on it knows it just gets rougher . So he makes it all the way through the safari and we start unloading and he kinda pushes past everyone and starts running up the walkway. This being his first time he has no idea where any bathrooms are at and he is not carrying a map. We are following within sight of him when all of a sudden he darts into the trees and brush lining the walkway. We get to where he is at and see him relieving himself there. I was thinking OMG. Security is going to come by and boot us all out of the park. We start walking away acting like we don't know him just as security comes walking by. I'm thinking that he is busted as he is walking out of the trees and back on the walkway. Security ask him what he is doing in there and he tells him he tripped and fell in there . And security believed him!! As I walk up to him I point to a building across the walkway and tell him there is the bathroom. I was solo embarrassed. Now we ask him before every ride if he has to go!!!

More more!!

I guess I have one actually....

Last trip to WDW my youngest was only six weeks old. My two year old was happily playing at the play area that had been in Mickey's Toon Town. I sat on a bench outside of that to keep an eye on the two year as well as be able to nurse my baby. Then on the other end of a bench a man sat down and lit up a cigarette. I don't smoke and it's instantly gives me a headache to be near that. And it was not a smoking area. I tried to stand up and move to the next bench. At that exact moment my ds started filling his diaper. The pressure from me lifting him caused it to, let's just say - not stay in the diaper - he was wearing a romper so it got all over my hand and arm. Meanwhile I'm still nursing him. My husband had gone to the restroom so I had no extra hand to try and get cleaned up! Luckily I was prepared and somehow managed to get the wet wipes and extra outfit out of the stroller without flashing anyone or getting any of the poo on my clothes. I'm sure I looked like a total crazy person and grossed some people out!

Luckily I didn't let it bother me too much and had a great rest of the day and trip!

I'm sorry you had to deal with a smoker in a non smoking area. I smoke but never where I am not supposed to. Just because I do does not mean it is okay to subject others to it.

Minor embarrassing moment for my son on our recent trip.
We went to Tom Sawyers island. My kids were running and exploring all over. They got to the fort and were trying to explore every area they could. I see my 10 yo son run towards "the powder room". I begin to tell him it is the ladies bathroom just as he opens the door and a woman is coming out. He was pretty red in the face when e realized his misunderstanding of the word "powder room"
