DW uses our shopping bags, to give family members "Meals on Wheels" deliveries.

That's a lovely idea! I just sort of look at mine and reminisce with some horror on how much money I spent.

Another shameful secret: I cried and screamed in terror on Honey I Shrunk The Audience during the bit where the white mice multiply and "escape" into the theater, so much so that I won't do It's Tough To Be A Bug.

Okay, here I go...

1) I carry a bagailini in the parks because so many people rave about them and now I agree it's the best bag in the world. No one knows it's a bagalini because it's super masculine and it's army green so it really is my dirty little secret (until now).

2) When I find a scrapper pin in the course of trading, I give it to a crying child because I don't have to cringe when I throw it away, but it makes the child stop crying and my ears feel better. (And it's not like they don't know what a scrapper is...)

3) I use every snack credit on the deluxe dining plan for the pre-made carrot cakes they serve at many of the quick service restaurants and dole whip floats cuz they're both so friggin' good! Once in the past 4 years I got a pretzel...(and somehow I never gain any weight - must be all the walking)

4) Each trip I'm guilty of taking 3 of the mickey stickers that CM's give kids and making a hidden mickey on the back of the shirt of some grown-up grump in front of me in line. I keep "accidentally" bumping into them until all 3 adhere. In my imagination they get back to their room and can't help but actually smile

5) In addition to eating 2 junk food snacks a day and dessert with every lunch and dinner, I also eat 2-3 Ice Cream Cookie sandwiches from Sleepy Hollow in the MK every trip. Those are the best!!!!!

6) Whenever someone new goes with me on a trip to WDW, I always take them to SGE and then scare them into thinking the whole ride is going to spin really fast and go upside down (hence the harnesses)....

7) I always see the streetmosphere character's last show of the day at HS when they play the "99" game and I purposely try to get chosen to offer up one of the suggested things used in the game. Because prior to my trip I purposely go through the dictionary trying to find the craziest thing I can mention to see everyone struggle to make it work... One time I offered up "bedazzler"

I'm sure there are other silly things I do that I'm may or may not be proud of, but these are just some.

shameful

Kayla I agree it is lame Foxie that was funny did you make the return trip. I love Everest but since I have high blood pressure and the medication screws me up I even have a hard time walking backwards. The only way I make it through Everest is when we go backward I close my eyes and scream like a little girl. My son's laugh their butts off at me. When I get off the ride I stagger atom like a drunk. I love that ride.

The more the merrier! Heck, I get bored in line just like everyone else, so I just try to find ways to make it fun that (in most cases) don't negatively impact the people around me. The one thing I can't handle: adults being grumpy in line - especially when that adult is accompanied by an otherwise really happy family. Many of the meltdowns I see are the adults - usually the children are just feeding off them. Sometimes I wish I could pull a Cher in Moonstruck and help grumpy "snap outta it!" (if only that was a slap instead of a wave)... Instead, grumpy makes dopey want to come out and play. BWAHAHAHAH!

Before this last trip, I had a 4 year break between trips. I thought I could handle another break after this one. . . I CAN'T.

I also save my disney bags. I save hygiene products. I saved the shotglass from my yeager in Germany. My sister accidentally saved a disney towel.

I did not get the dole whip and rum float from Epcot when I went, even though it was one of the things I was looking forward to the most. I MUST go back!

I save Disney coloring pages on my computer and color them in with my graphics program. I tell myself "it's for the scrapbook" but it's really because I like doing it.

I'm 26 and I sleep with Pooh, Duchess, Dumbo and Lady in my bed. They also come on trips with me, or at least one of them does.

I never leave Disney without a XL bag full of stuffed animals and tell myself they are a gift. I never end up actually giving them away cause I just can't.

I hereby apologize to all my friends who never get a souvenir when I go to Disney.

I feel a lot better now! I actually buy coloring books and markers and color them in. Just because I love to.
And I get REALLY upset when someone wants to color one too and uses the "wrong" colors, like pink for Belle's blue dress.

Oh and I forgot, I've got 15 puzzles of 1000 pieces, all Disney. And I've only made 2, but still I keep buying them when I find them.

My Confessions

I once had to sit through Epcot's O Canada!, with my eyes shut because I was a little more drunk than I thought and it was making my very nauseated.

Last time I went to WDW my sister and I could not afford Photo Pass stuff but took Screen Shots of all the pictures to that we could still enjoy looking at them even if the quality was too poor to print.

I actually like Small World, Tiki Room & Carousel of Progress. (Nostalgia?) However Hall of Presidents puts even me to sleep.

I am out of mind EXCITED that Captain EO is back!!!!! (went to that twice in a row the only time I got to see it when I was 13)

I once went on Star Tours 5 times in a row with no lines and loved it even the 5th time.

I hoard the shopping bags AND extra Napkins from WDW.
I love to use the napkins when I get home to remind me and the bags for just about everything.


I only like a couple of things at AK and have taken to skipping it.

Fantasmic bores me.

I hate Tarzan, Hercules, The Emperor’s New Groove, the Sword in the Stone, Home on the Range, the Black Cauldron, & Treasure Planet.

I have yet to taste a Dole Whip

I cry (every time) at the beginning of the Fireworks show when Tink flies across the sky.
