All of these bird stories reminded me of another one!

I was about 12 or 13. My family and I had just sat down at a picnic table under a tree at Typhoon Lagoon to eat lunch. I just had a big order of fries I was about to dig into when I heard some chirping. There was a large bird directly above me in the tree, so I said to my family, "I'm going to scoot over before this bird poops in my food! Haha!" like that would ever happen, right? Well, I scooted about a foot and a half down the seat, and the bird followed me. As soon as it settled in its new spot, it let a big one go right into my fries. It looked like ranch dressing.

A bird also pooped into my ice cream when I was walking through Cedar Point once. Apparently word is out in the avian community to target my food!

My then 3 year old DS got scared meeting Goofy. He tried to hide behind my elastic waist skirt. He managed to somehow pull the enter skirt to the ground in front of the Photopass photographer and a long line of people.

We just got back from a trip that included Universal and these happened at Universal. We were in line waiting for the boat to take us back to the resort. A little girl next to me was very very whiny. Well her dad picked her up and I hear her cough and I shoved my wheelchair into forward. At that moment she pukes up everything I think she has eaten in three days all over her father, the ground AND the lady next to my dh who had moved up into the spot I had been in. I was never so glad I moved. I did feel bad for the little girl. It was blistering hot and I think she was suffering heat exhaustion.

Second one was we were having dinner at a restaurant at our hotel. Well they served the bread and the butter. Only problem was the butter was frozen solid. I mean it clinked when you tapped it on the plate. It was impossible to spread. Well the kids, dh, and I were very very quietly joking around about it. All of a sudden the head waiter walks over with a plate of melting butter and says "Here this should be better than the frozen butter". We cannot figure out how the heck they heard what we were saying. I swear I think our table was bugged because we were exceedingly quiet about it. What was funnier is my ds wanted to comment about something that had to do with the food after this and he TEXTED me from across the table.

I have one that happened at Disney. I have a walking disability and this year I was forced to use my electric wheelchair to get around. Well I am still not really good with the controls yet. We were leaving to go to a park and dh opened the door. I move forward at a little too fast a clip. Poor dh could not get his foot out of the way fast enough and I ran right over it. He howls grabs his foot and lets go of the door, which slams into me and the chair trapping me in-between the door and the door frame. I am trying to make sure my dh is okay and calling for my kids to grab the door and untrap me. These would be the same kids who were just about rolling all over the floor laughing at this point. Poor dh limped for about an hour after that and was paranoid the whole rest of the trip every time we went out a door. LOL

I'm so sorry....but my daughter and I had a good laugh with your story. Hope your DH's foot was OK the rest of the vacation.

These are the kind of memories that are not on a touring plan!!!! They sort-of just happen and it is great that you can look back on it, have a chuckle, and then share it later with all of us on the disBoards.

That is what makes it so magical....they seem to just know everything. I picture a guy sitting in a room full of monitors and suddenly up comes a picture of a family tapping their butter and it makes a clinking noise.... out goes the alert about the butter.

If we're sharing "other parks" moments we had a cracker at SeaWorld. We were riding Journey to Atlantis - there was a HUGE Brazilian tour group in front of us, behind us & on top of us. There were just everywhere, in their defense they were not a problem at all & we queued next to the group "leader" who was an incredibly funny guy when we were talking to him. Because of the Brazilians josling for boats the 4 of us ended up in our own boat.

My Dad went to board first & was getting into row 3, he reached to steady himself to get in by grabbing the handrail in the boat but instead grabbed the lap bar which, you guessed it, immediately dropped. Sensing himself in trouble he grabbed for the back of the chair & actually grabbed the lap bar of the row behind which immediately dropped.

So with nothing to support him he fell face first into the boat with the 3 of us just standing doubled over in laughter. The attendant helped him up & was laughing herself. We were laughing so hard we were told off by her for taking so long to board the boat. We eventually did & turned to the dock to see all of the Brazilian tour group laughing at the show.

He escaped with just some bruising & I actually emailed SeaWorld to ask if they keep CCTV footage but heard nothing back, they probably just assumed I was a weirdo.

There were a few non-Disney words spoken. Thankfully they were under his breath and not yelled LOL!

He was fine about an hour after it happened but he did sort of this little Flamenco dance sort of dealie when he opened the door for me from then on so that I couldn't run over his feet. LOL

We are a family of five. Many of the rides leave one person riding alone or with a stranger. I'm friendly and a good sport, so I usually volunteer to be that person.

While getting onto Expedition Everest, I lost my footing and fell on top of a very attractive young man that would be sitting beside me. My husband, kids and people standing nearby all had a good laugh at my expense. Needless to say, it was a very awkward ride from that point.

Sounds like something I would do!
