    Loving the DIS board already and this is just my first thread.

    Yet another story of mine is from when I was a kid and we went to the Poly. My dad rented a sail boat with my sister and I, but the problem is someone shut the wind off once we were out in the water. After aimlessly floating for what felt like an hour, once getting yelled at by another boat that was fishing (as if we wanted to drift towards them), I had the bright idea to get out of the boat and swim for help. Well around that time a disney boat (with motor) came by and yelled for me to get back in the boat (stay out of the damn lake!). They threw us a line and towed us to safety and my laughing (and video camera holding) mother. :woohoo:

    This reminded me of an embarrassing story only it was my niece and her daughter.
    My niece, Jennifer, and her daughter, Ashley, joined us on a trip. The girls were 12( niece) and 11 (DD). We decided to rent mice at the Beach Club. Jen decided to allow her daughter to drive the boat. Ash drove into the long grass along the water's edge near the BWV walkway to Hollywood Studios. The boat stopped and would not start again! My daughter and I started giggling as we watched from our boat. Jennifer jumped into the water to try to push the boat out of the grass thinking it would reach her knees. Umm, no, it reached to her bosom. Just then, a Friendship boat goes by and the captain announces over the loudspeaker that he's called for help. My daughter and I lost it as did the people on the boats. Cameras were flashing like a rush of paparazzi. It's one of our best and funniest Disney memories.

    Never had a disney bird attack me but it seems every time I go to Disney 51 times now they always fly over and poop on me. It's kind of a family joke now they tell me to wear a poncho or use an umbrella.

    This thread is hilarious. I actually have a funny one. We were at WDW this past June. There were 12 of us. One day we were at Hollywood Studios and my husband and sister in law, and the kids decided they were heading over to the Tower of Terror and Rockin Rollercoaster. I've done them both but wasn't in the mood. I told them I would pass and planned to head into some of the shops to do some shopping. As I was walking by Echo lake by myself (literally 2 min after my family left me) I was hit lightly in the head by something. A little shocked I looked up and saw a duck flying away...I thought "oh wow, a duck just skimmed my head" no sooner did I finish that thought and BONK, I was hit very hard in the head a second time, heard some quacking also. Completely stunned now...I look up and see a second duck flying away. I take a few steps...in total shock thinking "I've been hit in the head twice by low flying ducks" then I looked down at myself.....OH MY GOSH I WAS COVERED IN DUCK POOP! I guess the second duck must have been startled when it hit me and just let go!! My chest, arm, neck, head, ear.....I was covered...and it smelled awful. Then I realized lots of people were looking at me as I stood with my jaw hanging! I quickly rushed to the closest ladies room to clean up but I was such a mess it was impossible. I had to walk back to Beach Club Villas (didnt dare get on the boat due to how bad i smelled) and take a shower. It was imbedded in my hair, my ears. so the rest of the vacation I was paranoid of any low flying birds and frequently told people to beware of the ducks!

    Not Disney related but on 2 trips to Europe, I walked out of church and birds pooped on my jacket (Yugoslavia) and my hair (Ireland).

    Donald needs to start keeping his cousins in line it sounds! Animals in Disney are so use to people it seems now that they just don't care. It is morbid though to see the turkey legs being chewed on by the birds in the MK:eek: public service announcement: throw them away when finished, or don't buy one please :thumbsup2

    I've got a great picture I took during one of my trips this past year of some little birds bathing in a puddle on the road that made me laugh. Funny how I feel like Dug sometimes with the common squirrel or bird when I'm surrounded in the uncommon.

    Be careful of the birds at Flame Tree! They'll chase people away to get their food.

    We visited Disney back in March 2010 and had decided to take a trip to Typhoon Lagoon. We went on a water slide (cant remember which one), but the force of the slide and me hitting the water at the end caused my normally tight bikini top to end up round my neck. I stood up not realising. It took me about 30-60 seconds to realise and Iam sure loads of people saw. I wanted to DIE! Next time, I will be holding onto my bikini not my nose :)

    Or wearing an all in one suit :)

    Ahhh! Very similar to what happened to us, but it was our DS who was 18M and it wasn't Pink Lemonade....

    My sister joined us on our trip years back and was excited to get a churro over by mexico in world showcase. She was enjoying it as we were walking around until out of no where a seagull swooped down and grabbed it out of her hand ? We were all laughing and couldn't believe that just happened ?

    On our first trip to WDW, DS was only 3 and had been a little sick most of the trip. One night we left MK quite late after the fireworks and needless to say, ended up on a VERY crowded bus back to AKL. I managed to find a seat for DS and I stood right in front of him. Well he was SO cranky and decided he didn't like me there, so he started to push my legs with his feet and sort of kick me. I was trying to downplay the tantrum, like all mothers do. Well, DH was standing a little further back and had had enough. All of a sudden he reached over and gave DS a little smack on his thigh (couldn't reach his bottom!) Well it made the BIGGEST smack sound that the whole bus went silent! I was mortified! I couldn't look anyone in the face. When I scolded DH afterward he said the guy next to him said "I would have done the same thing buddy" which of course made him feel justified, while I felt like we were terrible parents!

    At least it wasn't as bad as the yelling, obnoxious parents you see occasionally. There are some screaming kids on those buses/attractions/etc that you just want to leave, but when it is a parent:furious:

    I know you will know where this is going when I say....When my husband, my mother and I were in the AK eating at the Flame Tree BBQ...we also had the problem with the birds. It was our first trip to the AK, so we did not know what we know now;) We had one large crane that kept "eying" my husband. It would walk slowly around where we were sitting, doing this and that, looking spooky but not really hurting anybody etc. Well all of a sudden the crane lunged with his huge beak and snatched my DH's corn muffin right off of his tray! Paper wrapper and all! We all screamed and DH snatched up his tray (I think he was worried more about his BBQ chicken that he was thoroughly enjoying) :lmao: We still talk about that till this day.

    He wants to eat there on our next trip but doesn't want to deal with the birds. Guess we could risk angering the seating gods by taking our food to Pizzafari.....or not :eek:

    Be thankful it wasn't a tiger... or dinosaur :hyper::eek:
    I wonder if you tell the eateries where these various items that get snatched up by birds come from that you were robbed by a bird if they will give you another?:woohoo:
