I was at the Magic Kingdom after having been at Universal Studios on the day before with my family. I was wearing a "Green Eggs & Ham" shirt that I had bought at the park because my name is Samantha. Although sometimes people call me "Sam", and the license plate on my mom's car says "Sam Iam". One of the Cast Members at "It's A Small World" noticed my shirt, and joked, "I think you're in the wrong park Dr. Seuss."

Another funny moment was on another trip when one of the cast members at Old Key West made me, and my friend Lorrie laugh when he did his great impression of Donald Duck. It was so cute, and funny. I don't know if anyone else on here has had an encounter with him. But, he works in that gift shop store at the resort. I wish I had known his name. Because we ran into him again at the gift shop store on the day before we had to leave, and he still made us laugh again with his Donald Duck voice.

This one just happened a couple of days ago,

I was buying a slushie at the small stand across from Cosmic Ray's and I handed the CM a $20. He hands me back all $5 bills and says, "I hope you don't mind the fives, that's all I got".

I reply, "It doesn't matter, the Mouse will get them back anyways".

He laughed and said, "Yeah, that's the magic".

When I was at DL with my friends, there was no line to go on Winnie the Pooh, so we walked straight to the front of the line and once when we were sitting down etc, the CM managing the ride was talking to us just to fill up the time.
He asked us where we were from and we told him London.
Then he asked how we got to California. Right away he knew it was a stupid question and everyone replied 'Plane, silly!'
I looked at him and said in my usual sarcastic way 'not me, I walked'
And he said 'I like you, you're funny' and set us on our way.

When we'd finished the ride and were walking away he came chasing us down and gave me a Pooh Bear keychain to remind me how much of a sarcastic smarty-pants I was.

When DS was 3 we took him to DL and DCA. We rented a stroller but he's always preferred to walk and we never really minded becasue the stroller gave us a great place to stash all of our stuff while we were in the parks. He was always really good about holding someone's hand but since it was so crowded that visit, we put one of those plush animal "backpacks" with the little leash on it on him just in case we got separated in a crowd. Needless to say, everywhere we went the CMs would ask him, "Did you know you have a monkey on your back?" My favorite was when Mary Poppins and Bert asked with their accents!

DH, DS and I rode up front on the Backlot Tour in 2011. The CM doing the tour was a sweet young woman who obviously didn't get enough sleep the night before. She did her speech at the beginning of the ride and then fell sound asleep for the remainder, LOL. We were trying so hard to hold in our laughter the entire length of the ride, and I even took her picture while she slept. Somehow though, at the end of the ride, and right on time, she jumped out of her sleep with a huge smile on, waved to all the people and said she hoped everyone enjoyed the Backlot Tour and to have a great day! One of our funniest WDW moments ever!

I shave my head clean, as in shaving cream and razor. The Magic Kingdom Fire Chief came up behind me, rubbed my head, and said I looked like I needed a trim and informed me where the barber shop was! That was within the first 45 minutes of our last trip, and really set the tone for our best Disney trip ever!

Minnie gave me a kiss. Shhhhhhhhh!

At MK last last year. DD and I were strolling through Epcot mid afternoon. Well, it was either Epcot or DHS. We hit it really early, so my memory is a bit hazey.

Anyway, in the late afternoon we stumble into a line and it's for Minnie, who's signing autographs and posing for pictures. I am a sucker for characters, as is my daughter. We just really get excited when we run into characters. They are such a big part of the experience.

She finally got up there and we had Photopass pictures taken. It was great and we were leaving to let others move up. But then the escort CM grabbed me. She turned me around and Minnie was waving me over. Minnie wanted to see me personally! I am a huge sucker for character encounters. I mean, I really geek out, as we all do, I guess. But I was letting my girl have her moment without butting in.

But when Minnie calls you over, you GO, no questions asked. So I flew over there and politely stood by Minnie, gently leaning into her because, you know, I don't want to creep her out. But she wants none of it. Minnie wraps her arm around mine and leans in close and kisses me on the cheek. I am the man!

As I thank her profusely and walk away from her, the CM grabs me again and turns me around. Minnie raises her pointed finger to her lips and makes the Shhhhh! gesture, a sign to keep the kiss on the q.t. so Mickey doesn't find out.

That was hilarious. My little girl was teasing me the rest of the day. Anyway, Minnie telling me to keep the kiss away from Mickey is one of the funniest things a CM has ever said to me.

We had a CM do this for us while we were waiting in line for the Monorail at the Contemporary. DS4 loved it and still talks about it!

From what I can remember. He worked in that little grocery store/gift shop place on the property at OKW. I saw the name of it once when I was looking for some information on OKW. But, I forgot the name of it. When I go back there with my friend next year who is planning on staying there again as she has a timeshare there. I'll have to find out who he is. Or, if there are any cast members on here who works at OKW, or knows people who do. Maybe they would know.

I had lunch at CRT on my 21st birthday, and just after we'd done the photos with Cinderella she whispered in my ear "You want to head over to Epcot after here princess". She was delighted to hear that was my plan anyway and recommended I try a beverage from every Kingdom!
Funniest thing was as we were leaving we walked past her again (no one waiting for her and no children around) and she made a drinking mime and winked!
Who knew Cindy had such a devious streak in her!

I was walking down Main Street USA. It was fairly empty I was walking on the right side of the street, when someone walked right into me. I was just about to say something to that person when I realized it was the Fairy Godmother. She said, "Excuse me deary! I'm so terribly sorry!" And with that, she left me in the middle of the street, while she went and power walked ahead towards the castle.

On our trip last year, the security guard who looked at our bags told my sister she couldn't bring in the apples she had stashed in there for a snack. She was actually upset for a split second until he mentioned that Snow White wasn't too fond of them. It was a neat little moment.

Also at Disneyland, Cruella DeVille stole my Duffy bear. I ran down Main Street after her, pleading for him back while she tried to convince me that she would take very good care of him. My friends could not stop laughing.
