I quickly shoved it back under the nightstand and before we left for the parks I called Mousekeeping to tell them and have them throw them away. Whoever I talked to totally misunderstood because about 10 minutes later a Mousekeeper knocked on the door and handed me a Disney Family magazine. I called again and thought the person understood, but when we got back from the parks later the Playboy and another men's magazine were sitting on the table with a towel animal on top!

ETA: I was a little more upset at the time and at this point called the front desk and talked to a manager. He sent Mousekeeping to my room for a full cleaning that we weren't due for because of being on DVC points and gave me a meal voucher for Olivia's.
I have been reading this thread to DD 18 and when I got to this one I could not stop laughing it is just too funny. It took 3 tries to be able to get to the end for her. It must have been so embarrassing to have them think that you wanted all those magazines. At least you got the meal voucher.

Love this thread, here's mine. I was 5 years old, so you have to imagine it from that perspective. My very first ride at Disney was Space Mountain. I insisted on being first in line for my family, and all through the line I kept making sure my parents and brother were behind me because I wanted to be first because I was soooooo brave. Towards the end of the line I notice my Dad had snuck in front of me despite my vigilance. Well I give him a great big old bear hug from behind and said " Dad! I want to be first!" Then the man who is wrapped in my arms looks down behind him and it is NOT my dad but a complete stranger! I was so mortified. I went and hung out behind my brother and parents and refused to be first. I'm over 30 now and still think about this every time I'm in the space mountain line.

Dying. Absolutely hilarious.

The poor kid looked MORTIFIED!!!

My girlfriend burst out laughing and spouted, "Paging Dr. Freud!"

I'm pretty sure the CM is scarred for life.

BTW, it was at least a month before I could even look at a Coke bottle w/o laughing!
Hilarious.

Running to breakfast in flip flops at the POFQ.

Tripped and heavily grazed knees and arms.

That stung the grit got in my arm.

Ouch!

This didn't happen at Disney but I once at the movies accidentally drank not once, not twice, but three times out of the drink of the person next to me.

It was a good movie, she never noticed and I didn't know quite what to say.

I can totally relate. I did something similar as a child, though not at WDW. Totally mortifying!

I don't think my cousins will ever let me forget, nor will I ever leave HM without laughing.
I had a similar experience!

I was with my parents right in front of the (then closed) doors to the Mansion. I turned to say something to my dad, so my back was facing the doors. In that space of time, a cast member had opened the door but hadn't said a word. When I turned around, he was a foot or less in front of me. I shrieked and jumped back a bit, to say the least, to the amusement of my father and I'm sure several guests around us.

This story was relayed to me, so bare with me if the details are sketchy.

A friend of mine was at Epcot during food and wine and park hopped to MK that night to meet up with my wife and I. Apparently on the ride over, she was joined by some unruly & generally classless guests that decided earlier to get their over-fill of "the drink". Well while riding in the same car as my friend, one of them decided to "release the kraken" all over the place and then just simply laughed it off as though it were sorority grab-***-night, without any sort of sincere apology from her or her friends

Luckily, I don't think my friend was hit (that I recall), but wow talk about stupidly embarrassing. Getting sick is one thing, but that is simply

My most embarrassing moment happened this year during our mother and son's annual Spring Break trip. My sweet boy is 16 and towers over me at 6 ft tall now, but he still enjoys hanging out with me!
Anyway, within minutes of checking in at our hotel we were out the door and headed to MK. It had been raining off and on, and I should have stopped long enough to change my shoes, but I didn't...mistake! I was wearing flip flops.
We zipped down Main Street and headed to the Haunted Mansion, our favorite! The queue line was wet but I didn't think much about it. We didn't make it into the mansion in time and the doors closed in front of us . So we waited patiently behind the line. A nice crowd of people started trickling in behind us, no big deal. Until the doors opened, and I started to walk in....well... my right leg went sliding rapidly behind me, I came down on my right knee, while my left leg shot forward! Luckily for me my left flip flop caught the entrance of the mansion or I would have done a split! I heard gasps and OMG's behind me, ugh! My DS grabbed me and yanked me straight up onto my feet. He pulled me over to the side looked down into my eyes and asked me if I was hurt. I think he was checking to see if I was crying. I told him the top of my toes were burning so I probably had scratched them up, but I was ok. Then I told him I probably ruined my toe nail polish, lol!
Then my DS says to me..."That was the coolest thing I've ever seen! Mom you just did a Tebow!!"
I was in a state of mortification because I slipped down in front of 25 strangers, and my boy thought is was cool.

The only time I can remember being embarrassed at Disney is when I was 13 and wandering around the Morocco pavilion. I was looking at something and when I turned around Aladdin was standing right behind me and it really scared me, plus he was good looking and flirty and it was just so embarrassing for a 13 year old haha
