I managed to throw up in a shopping bag I was holding, but, ahem, I didn't make it to a toity, and everything I was wearing from the waist down was just a horrible mess... I finally made it to the bathroom with my daughter following and went into a stall and stripped off my soiled clothes. My daughter gave me a big plastic bag and I stuffed all the soiled things into it, then managed to get cleaned up a bit between bouts of continuous vomiting and diarrhea.

Finally I felt a bit better and by that time other family members had come to check on me and we managed to collect enough sweaters and sweatshirts for me to wrap around my waist so I could exit the park decently dressed. But, before exiting, I managed to throw up at least 6 more times, and by the time I got back to the rental house, I was so sick I thought I'd die.

Spent the rest of the trip in bed, feeling worse than I'd felt in my entire life. No doubt I should have gone to the doctor but couldn't get out of the bathroom long enough to travel to one. Not sure what I had, but it was sudden and horrible.

Ever since then I drench myself and everyone else in hand sanitizer whenever I set foot in a park. Never want a repeat of THAT.
Oh my that sounds terrible!!

We basically said whatever you want, we'll buy it. I still feel bad about that. And for the rest of the trip he was deathly afraid to ride anything!
We had a similar issue at DHS on the Studio Backlot Tour when DS with ASD was maybe 9 or 10. He enjoys most attractions as long as they are not roller coasters or super loud. Well, everything was going well on the backlot tour until we got to Catastrophe Canyon. Then, he burst into tears and screamed at the top of his lungs, "I HATE THIS!" I felt like the worst mom in the world.

This did not happen at Disney but has to do with Disney. My boys got me 3 pins while we were at Disney this month. We got home and I changed purses and for some stupid reason didn't take them out and put the purse in the closet. Yesterday my dog decides it would be a good idea to play with this purse. Heavens no that she should play with her own toys. Well I took the purse away from her but didn't notice the upside down pin with the rubber back off of it on the floor. Fast forward to the middle of the night. I come out of the bathroom after blowing my nose and YEP full weight down on the stupid pin driving it up to the flat part of the pin into my foot. I start screeching and grabbed my foot while trying to balance on the other, dh jumps out of bed runs over says HOLY CRAP and pulls the pin out of my foot. Good thing he did cuz otherwise it was staying there. I could not make myself pull it out. So today I am sporting a very sore foot. Laughing about it now but it was not amusing last night.

My DW an avid horse back rider had talked the reluctant kids DD, DS and I into going for a trail ride at Fort Wilderness. The ride for me and the kids seemed to go on forever. We did however, get our revenge when the ride was over. DW got a leg cramp and immediately started screaming at the top of her lungs, "I can't get down, I can't get down." The kids and I dismounted and kept on going down the path denying we knew this woman as two cowboy CMs had to pull her off the horse. Twenty years later and we still are laughing about the moment and poke fun at her every time we see a horse. It may seem cruel but she laughs the loudest.

Instead of "I've fallen, and I can't get up." It's "I'm crampin', and I can't get down." I'm sure DW was (ahem) very "appreciative" of her family's "compassionate response" to her leg cramp, too. That's one of those sensitive times when you know you shouldn't laugh at someone's misery, but it's sure hard not to!

Not Disney but funny horse ridding story..


Went with some friends paid for the ride. My horse kept getting antsy & rearing up after a few times of him rearing up I'd has enough told guide I wanted to go back, she told me to stay on the horse she would walk him back.
On the way back something moved in the bushes & scared the horse who reared up & guide let go so horse took off running.
Once we got it to stop I was ticked & wanted off I leaned forward & threw my leg over to get down but when I tried to step down I realized my bra was stuck on the saddle horn!!
Guide had once again let go & I'm dangling on side of the horse by my bra & horse yet again takes off with me screaming curses at the guide!
The guide had to catch up & undo my bra for me to get down! I was angry, humiliated & just wanted to go home! Unfortunately I had rode with a friend so I had to wait.
Once the rest of the tour came back my friends asked me what happened & at that point the guide busted out laughing!!!! I wasn't happy.
Owner of the ranch refunded my money without me even asking but everyone there had a smirk on their face!! My friends over 10 yrs later have not let me live it down!

So one time a long long time ago when my kids were much smaller we were rushing to get on Haunted Mansion. My wife asked me to go park the stroller. So I did so and then jogged back to catch up with the rest of the family in line.

My wife asked where the baby was. I didn't know it but the baby was asleep in the covered stroller. Both of our eyes got really big when we realized what had just happened.

I ran back to the stroller and baby was just fine and still asleep.

Not really embarrassing to the masses around me but as a father it was pretty humiliating.

DHS Embarrassing Moment

About 5 years ago we were visiting DHS. My DS was in the stroller and my purse was down in the bottom basket of our stroller.

We were trying to make our way over to TOT and Rock n Roller Coaster from the Animation Academy. There was something blocking the regular path a parade or maybe the Disney Rocks show.

Anyway,s we followed the sidewalk in front of Hollywood Brown Derby and then past Starring Rolls, and then there was a set of stairs. There were lots of people walking this way. We couldn't turn around so DH decides to lift up the stroller and carry it up the stairs.

He picked up the front and I picked up the back and he started up the steps. He is a good bit taller than me and so I had a hard time as the stroller got higher and higher and then it tipped. Thankfully DS didn't fall out but everything in my bag spilled out on the steps as he went up the steps. Dh was completely oblivious to everything going on behind him. I was hollering stop stop but he couldn't hear me.

People were kind and were handing me all the stuff that was now scattered on the stairs. What a scene!

This one is absolutely mortifying... but I'm glad it didn't end up worse!!

When I was 13, my parents and younger sister and I took a trip to WDW and the day we were in MK, it started pouring, so we got some sweet yellow touristy plastic ponchos to wear until the rain let up. We decided to go on Splash Mountain and kept our ponchos on so we wouldn't have to carry them through the queue.

About 20 minutes after we got in line, I felt like I needed to use the restroom, but there was no way I could walk all the way out of the queue, find a restroom, and then essentially cut everyone in line to get back to my family, so I thought I could hold it. An hour later, I'm about to wet myself as we get to the front of the line. I'm frantically looking around for a bathroom (as we're boarding the ride? 13 year old me was a genius) and realize that I have two options: board the ride or sprint through the chicken exit and hope that I make it to the nearest bathroom. I take option one.

As a last-ditch effort, I try to make it through the ride, but it's not happening. So I pull my poncho around my bottom half and let nature take its course the poncho keeps it from going on my mom, who's sharing a car with me and has no idea what's going on... then before the big drop, I hike my poncho up to my waist and pray that we get soaked. Thankfully, we did, our car got filled with water and I'm drenched from the waist down.

The rest of my family stayed pretty dry and they kept asking how I got so wet... I just said my poncho must've ridden up when I sat down
