Talking Our Disney Honeymoon

I have a great story! Back in 1999 wmy wife and I got married, (not legally then - but we are now! ) and spent a few days in Disney World before going on a Disney Cruise honeymoon. The world was not yet as open as it is today so we didn't really advertise our relationship - nor did we go to great lengths to hide it either. One day we rented Mouse Boats at the Polynesian. The girl who filled out the forms noticed our matching nails and complemented them as we went out. Then when we returned she said with a grin "Were you in a wedding?" We kind of looked at each other and said yes. Then she said "Was it YOUR wedding??" Again we said Yes! She tore up the rental agreements and said have a great honeymoon! How cool was that? Whenever we travel anywhere we always ask for a king bed and have never had any issues. Be your self and have fun!

Great story!

This thread made me do a double-take, since RickinNYC parted ways with the DIS a long while back

Hi again Ellen! Looking forward to telling you and your spouse about the experiences we've had with our daughter and her partner at WDW and on DCL when we meet for the Cars 2 NE DIS meet.

At WDW I've never had any problems with guests or CMs. However, at Disneyland I have had numerous negative encounters with park guests. It's amazing how conservative California really is!

I grew up in Orange County. It is one of the most conservative parts of California surprisingly. To this day, it surprises me how close minded the people there can be. Were your negative encounters with these park guests recently? I'm glad my gf and I didn't have any negative experiences at DL last summer after hearing what some people have said, but maybe I just was too busy having fun to pay attention to anyone else?

Oh no, I hate to hear this.
Citraco is hands down one of my favorite restaurants on property.
And my wife and I have never had a problem there - and we've celebrated two anniversaries there! They even made us special menus with bother our names on them... when we pointed out that while the names were correct the gender usage was herteronormative (we were teasing the waitress, and she knew we weren't angry), she took it back and they had it changed on the spot.

If you don't want to go because you don't want to go - then don't go.
But please don't let one unfortunate human interaction keep you away from a wonderful establishment.

Anyway we had the worst service ever in all the years we've gone to WDW. Fortunately it didn't really bother us enough to affect our trip, but we never went back to Citricos.

You would think with so many diverse cultures found in California, the people would be a little more excepting and open-minded. Yes, this was recently. I've had many times while holding hands with my boyfriend (at the time), parents start glaring and hiding their children's eyes. I've had a father tell his kid that I was a f-a-g-g-o-t that was gonna burn in hell. Today, I wear a rainbow Mickey pin (part of my pin collection) on my lanyard and occasionally get a few glares from people and teenagers yelling f-a-g-g-o-t as they walk pass me. One time I actually turned around and started yelling at this guy, calling him a coward and told him to "say that to my face!" He was in complete shock that I stood up for myself and walked away very fast.

That is just completely awful and unacceptable. I'm sorry to hear you've had multiple bad experiences there. This makes me really reconsider going back to DL anytime soon. While I tend to deal with behaviors like that better and try not to take people's ignorance and stupidity personally, my gf would crumble if someone did that to her while at DL. It is supposed to be a happy place.

Wow I could never imagine this happening at WDW.
