My mom celebrated her birthday at WDW in 2008. After a long humid day complete with rain (it was June), we decided to go to the Laugh Floor that evening. Mom's mind ended up being read that time. When asked to choose a number between 1 and 10, she said, "44" (she was a little shocked at the time). We still laugh about it today.

I have 2 funnies from last trip that spring to mind.

The first was taking DM and MIL on RnR coaster. This was MIL first time at the world so she didnt know what to expect of any of the rides. Well we sat them together in the seats behind us and listened to the squeels and panic before the ride started. Well at then end we got out to find them laughing hysterically and trapped in the car. MIL had somehow got her leg trapped in my Mums water bottle strap and neither could move for laughing. They had to be helped out by an unamused CM. They did get applause from everyone watching when they were free

The other was in Epcot WS during food and wine festival. It was extremely busy and we were shuffling along with the crowd when we heard a little voice behind us shout "Mom, Donald's over there. Can we go meet him please". To which Mom replied, "There's no time for Donald!". My DH was so shocked that he span around and said to her, "There's ALWAYS time for Donald!" and then dragged me off for a Donald photo. In the photo I'm crying with laughter at how incensed my DH was. To this day we mutter "there's no time for Donald", to each other whenever we here a child get told no to their request.

My mother's sister had recently passed away and my mother inherited her homemade clown suit that her sister had created in the 80s. My mother decided that was the only costume she really had to wear to the MNSSHP. This outfit had been in the same storage bag since the 80s and my mother didnt even bother airing it out or fluffing it before it got packed.

We are all getting ready...and out comes my mother in this monstrosity of a clown suit with a dry rotted crooked wig and a smooshed nose.
We laughed soooo hard we were crying.
My mother went as Grandma that evening. She didnt wear the suit out of the room....but we have lots of pics.

During the drop on Splash mountain, my hat flew off, and landed on the person (two rows back) head. What are the chances?

Ok, normally I'm not big on practical jokes, but that is just hilarious.

We had many funny moments at Disney but one of the funniest occured just after our trip.

We used photopass and got a free photo album to design ourselves online .... you could totally personalise it and in ours, I wrote the story of our trip. What a great memento!

When it arrived in the mail, I was so excited.

I read through, about our arrival, checking into our resort - All Star Movies - and how my daughter was so happy to be in the Toy Story building overlooking Andy's room .... for which I wrote "Waking up to a giant Woody each morning was awesome ...."

Yep, in ink, for everyone to read

We were on the monorail when we overheard a lad of about 7 or 8 years old ask his mother, "Are we parked at the ticket and constipation center?"

We rode Splash Mountain (MIL, DD & myself were in the front row while DH & DS were in the second row). MIL's hat flew off on the hill and DH caught it. You can see in the ride photo her hat go flying.

Last summer we randomly road tripped to Florida last minute to see the last shuttle launch. The next day, my BIL who is 29 and single, says lets go to MK for the day because I've never been and will never be back. So off we go and he spots people wearing birthday buttons. While my DS gets his first haircut at Harmony, BIL says he needs to get a button (his bday was in a few days). One of the CM's at Harmony went and got one for him. He was so excited and enjoyed the attention all day.

Fast forward to the MSEP, BIL is all wrapped up in the magic. Snow White stops in front of us and says "Happy Birthday" and blows a kiss. BIL gets the biggest grin ever and says thank you. I then hit my BIL and inform him that she was taking to the little girl next to him. He got so embarrassed and we teased him so bad.

The next day he reports to my DH " I always thought it was corny how people think Disney is such a magical place but it really is!" I then say "yeah even snow white blew you a kiss lol".

Sounds like what happened to my brother. Both his and my dad's hats flew off on Splash Mountain in March.

Dad had a red WDW cap that he'd spent a majority of his second trip finding (he wanted a red cap so we could find him in a crowd, which was easy enough because he's 6'2"). That one ended up never being found.

My brother's "vintage" Matt Kenseth cap (it's from when he had Dewalt sponsorship) I'd gotten him as a small present for making All-Region choir ended up in the lap of someone riding behind them.



I remembered another funny story from WDW. We visited in January 2008 when FL had that huge freeze. My mom, aunt, and I stayed to watch Wishes while my dad and brother went back to the resort (it was too cold for them). My aunt went off to get some hot chocolate. Before she got back to us, the lights had finally gone out because it had been delayed. She tripped over a curb and feel on her knees but did not spill any of the two cups of hot chocolate.

And that is not our first "falling at WDW" story. Between my mom, aunt, and me, we're kind of clumsy and accident-prone.
