feeling nostalgic, I lied to the POR security dude, said I had a dinner ressie at boatwrights, and caught the boat to DTD. It get's worse. On the return ride back to POR, a really sweet lady in a wheelchair started asking me about my stay at POR, i.e. what location, doncha just love it, etc. Instead of being honest, I made up some answers... "Oak Manor, Ma'am." "Of Course."

Overhearing my conversation, the kind, no reason to think I'm a fraud - single dad sitting behind me offered his two cents and an invitation to drinks after we docked.
Actually, I'm not entirely a fraud- I declined the offer.

I'm seriously going to hell.
Ok, NOW your talking shameful secrets! Wohoo!

A) Sometimes, when I go to park at Disneyland, I tell the parking attendant that I am meeting relatives in the RV area and they let me park on the ground level, which is awesome! Or....

B)...if the attendant isn't looking, I drive through the cones (another plus to a small car) and drive around to closer parking.

and the BIG one......

C) On more than one occasion, I have gone to WDW and not told ANYONE in my immediate family. (Don't worry, no husband or kids to deceive). I just call my family members a few times during my stay (mindful of the time difference) and say things like "Yeah, my day was good. Nothing new happening at work to speak of. How is your day going?" I am not actually lying, just not being totally forthcoming.

I may be going to hell, too. Do you think we will see Mr. Toad in his automobile in HELL???

I am totally envious of you of this one. I saw this ride before it was removed, just sitting there... waiting for someone to let us ride... I remember this very strongly from my childhood trip(s). I didn't know why they had that just wasting away there. It looked liked SO MUCH FUN!

So.. was it?

Talking Shame Shame Shame

I see far more big kids (adults) having meltdowns, than the little ones they have in tow. I chuckle over this.....Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. The power of freedom of thought.
To all on their up coming vacations to the pixie dust capitol. Have fun.

I get emotional when thinking about WDW or seeing pictures of it. Well the MK more so than others.

Adults only day would be wonderful or at least w/o large groups of unsupervised kids (cheerleaders, class trips, HS band, athletic teams).

Fall asleep on "small world" all the time.

Night-time shows (wishes, illuminations, the new memories display)
& any cool Disney story or blog make me cry. Tears of joy!

I've actually come close to falling asleep on "It's a Small World." Although it's a classic and have ridden it every time I've been.

My other shameful secret. I am probably one of the few who actually miss Mr. Toads Wild Ride at the MK!

lol my husband still can't get over the fact that the skyway buckets are gone.

I am jealous of all the people who live close enough drive to WDW in a few hours. Waiting for airfare to go on sale just stinks

Ohhh the memories!!! Way back then, I remember swimming at River Country a few times, just a simple watering hole without all the hype. and the skyway was one of my favorites from my very first visit to WDW.

And a shameful secret re: Mr.Toads Wild Ride: At the very end of the ride, right before the car would approach and open the doors, my friends and I would SCREAM (like --terrified screaming!) So, the doors would open to the mass of waiting people (kids and all) and the panicked looks on their faces somehow amused us.

OMG I got and still get that one! The amount of times I have corrected people (generally the same people over and over)! I know it's just a mix up (although some people I talk to really think there is only one Disney) but it drives me nuts!!!

I hate the parades and I don't like the musicals. I only use them to get out of the unbearable heat!
