Things that are different in the real world than in Disney

It's Friday! Let's have some fun and list things that are different in the real world than in Disney World (actual world of Disney, not the awesome Florida theme park).

1. When you stick your head out of your office at 5:00 on a Friday and yell out, "Hi ho", the responses you get back will most likely be strange stares rather than another, "Hi ho" followed by a big parade out the front door.

There was an episode from the first season of Magnum, P.I. called "China Doll". The plot is convoluted, but it involves a woman named Mai Ling, a priceless antique vase, and Mai Ling's cousin Ho.

Near the beginning of the episode, Magnum comes to visit Mai Ling, and Ho is there. Ho isn't terribly talkative, but Magnum tries to engage him.

Hi Ho!

Then he sort of rolls his eyes like he can't believe he just said that.

We don't break out in song randomly.

Which really disappoints me.

You clearly don't live with my kids


Try as I might, I have not yet been successful in getting any animal to do any cleaning for me.

Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

1. If a woman is living with 7 short guys, someone is either going to call CPS or Maury....

2. Locking your kid up in a tower? Yep, that's a call to CPS also..

3. Women, you do NOT want a guy kissing you for the first time while you're out like a light..

4. If the toys are talking, you may want to consider putting down the wacky tabacky....

The pumpkins that I get for Halloween refuse to turn into an elaborate stagecoach and when I wave a (DD's) wand my hair and makeup isn't done nor am I dressed and ready for the day.

Sounds like you've got some entertaining kids!!

The only time I've ever heard my BFs son break out in song was while he was in the washroom!! I was sitting at the dining room table, writing, when I heard him. I guess it's a good room for contemplation!

When a man calls me "princess" at Disney -- "Tee-Hee."

When a man calls me "princess" in the real world -- "Get away from me, creep!"

A rainy day in the real world is just a rainy day. No one's walking around in Mickey ponchos.

When I go to the movies, there's no one telling me to move all the way across my row & fill in all available space.

I can't pay for anything with my bracelet.

None of the lines I encounter in the real world have a fastpass option.

Our Main Street doesn't have a castle at the end of it.

My day doesn't conclude with fireworks.

1.When I go shopping in the real world and leave my packages behind to be shipped to me I can pretty much count on never seeing them again.

I can't take a bus or monorail everywhere I want to go.

My waffles are round, not shaped like Mickey.

When my two dogs eat spaghetti, they aren't cute. They are sloppy and messy.

A 6' talking mouse in the real world would be scarier than anything real that I can imagine.
