1. I went to WDW on a dare
2. I went on the Hunted Mansion 20 times and could probably live there if they let me.
3. Single rider line at EE was awesome rode that at least 25 times.
4. This ones bad had my pictures taken with characters and usually they shook my hand but for some reason I ended up hugging Donald Duck and I had to fight to keep the tears back.
5. I would go back in a heart beat and if I had the money would live there.

The shame was one yr I didn't understand the dining program and after 10 days at Disney the front desk told me at checkout I was leaving 19 snack credits. I have never forgotten this.

That's awesome!! Who doesn't love the Pirates?!

I know how you feel. I would love to be able to walk around as a princess like the little girls can. Good thing for MNSSHP and letting us get to dress up!! lol
That's cool that you want to see pics! I only posted what part of my collection I could easily take photos of because right now, my room is an absolute disaster!

I agree! I wish I could sew like that or knew someone who could and would hook me up with costumes like that!

About eight and a half years ago, Cinderella on The Disney Wonder totally dissed me. I still carry a slight grudge thanks to this evil Cinderella. She was rude and short with me from the second I said "Hi!" She made it seem like she wanted me to smile and get away from her as soon as possible. For whatever reason, she didn't treat everyone this way. She was nice to the crazy four year old who ate at our table, ran away from her parents & big sister and was just roaming the ship alone for the day (when her mom found her we had essentially been babysitting the cute little hyper active terror then her mom informed us that she was just so busy getting her hair ready for her husband so she figured the big sister could handle it and didn't even know the kid was missing) and Cinderella was nice to a middle aged man who she did all kinds of flirting with to the point that I badly wanted to remind her that she was married and needed to calm down (if only I had been bold enough to do it, I was 12 so I would have gotten away with it).

The interesting thing was that Snow White who was doing meet & greets near by was so sweet to me. She was friendly, she complimented me and when I came to see her again to get a new picture since I thought I looked bad in the other one she was happy & surprised to see me again then a little sad that the other picture was bad. She was great, and had I known then what I know now I would have gone to guest services, asked about service cards and raved about how amazing Snow White was, especially in comparison to the witch Cinderella who hated me for no reason. I would have made sure to throw in that last part so that I could complain about the witch without making it about her. Snow White would have been able to brag about being better at her job if she wanted to.

Thanks so much. That evening, I had more than one mom tell me that they thought that I was a cast member from a distance. I used my pic as my facebook profile and a friend's kids thought it was so cool that "dad knows Snow White". LOL When I was a little kid, all I wanted to be when I grew up was the Snow White cast member. By college, I had no idea that there was a college program. I could have applied.

Did the cast member tell you that even when you check out, your dining credits do not expire until midnight and you can go to a quick service location or bakery etc, and use up all your snack credits on fudge, brownies, popcorn etc, that you can take home? We once had about 6 to 8 that we used up by buying brownies and cookies.

How's about a compromise... you can stay at the Old Key West resort!

-I cried the first time I met Ariel.
-Last trip a CM asked if I needed to be let off of Aerosmith's ride right before takeoff. Apparently I had to look of fear in my eyes...and yes....I had to be let off LOL
-On my first trip, I was peer pressured into riding TOT and when we got off the ride I sat down and started bawling. (begining to realize maybe I cry a lot LOL)
-Never been past Mexico in Epcot..but this trip I am planning on seeing the whole world!
-secretly happy that Splash Moutain is under refurb while we are there, that way I don't even have to see the people make that huge drop.
-Even though we have an ADR for CRT and Tusker House because DS picked them....I think I am more excited than him, to have breakfast with Donald and to eat in the castle.

- Parades and Fireworks don't do anything for me. I probably haven't sat to watch a parade at Disney for fifteen years. I usually head over to the best rides in the park during fireworks shows.

- Said this a few pages back I think, but I love DinoLand USA. Some DISboards people seem to hate it and think it doesn't fit Walt Disney's vision. That may be true, but I enjoy the theme regardless.

- I've always wanted to be evacuated from a ride. Especially Haunted Mansion. I just think it would be a cool experience (except for the wait).

Talking I agree

I agree with the post about being evacuated from Haunted Mansion. It is my favorite ride at MK. I would def live there if they let me.

i got evacuated off pirates when i rode with my mom. we were stuck sitting in one spot for a loooooooooong time, and they turned the sound off so it was boring. eventually they turned the lights on and guys in those wader pants came around and pulled out boats back to an exit door and we had to walk outside in the rain around pretty much the whole ride back to the regular part of the park. they gave everyone two fastpasses each

it was cool to see the ride w/ lights on and see backstage a little, but sitting in that boat forever wasn't so fun. HM would be cooler to be evac'd off though!

Another shameful secret? I actually had an accident while on the Around the World at EPCoT Segway tour. I ran over one of my tourmates' Segways, broke the front off of my Segway and launched about 3 feet or so in the air.
