    Hello,
    This is a wierd question, but has anyone ever seen the couple at the GF who carry around a towel and think it is their baby. :confused3 They usually eat at 1900 Park Fare and we have seen them on 3 different trips. The waitress told us all about them. They are very wealthy and stay at the GF all the time. They bring this towel with them everywhere, and it has a baby hat on it. The woman makes the chef bring out food for the "baby" and she pretends to feed it, and then hides the food and pretends the baby ate it. :rotfl2: The staff caters to them b/c they literally stay at the hotel for a month at a time. We don't know if both the man and the woman think it's a baby, or if the husband just goes along with it.
    Also, there is a woman at the GF who brings tons of teddy bears with her, and sets them all up around her in the lobby. The staff said she comes every day, but doesn't stay there. My dad asked her if she won them all, and she replied that they were her children.:rotfl: Let me know if anyone else has seen them

    Yikes. Sounds like the kind of people they ask the neighbors about on the local news after something horrible happens.

    "They seemed harmless..."

    "They pretty much kept to themselves..."

    There used to be a long running towel baby thread on a college program board I used to visit. The stories are really strange. I never saw them on my CP, but there were plenty of people posting their stories. What was weird was the change in story by the "mother" - there were posts about how she'd insist that CMs treat the towel as a real baby, and many CPs were given a heads up when they started that she'd throw a fit if you treated it as anything but a child. I mean, get really offended if you didn't acknowledge the child. But then I remember a couple of reports where people said they'd gotten the heads up and when they went to "speak" to the "child" the woman would look at them like they're crazy and say, "it's just a towel!" and get all offended.

    So I don't know what's up. Sounds like they can't make up their own minds on what this thing is!

    Wow. I work in healthcare and it sounds like one of our good ol' schizophrenic or multiple personality patients. Or the alzheimer/dementia ones. ::Shrug::

    Sad, really. :sad1:

    But funny too..... :idea:

    We saw them a few times, and I swear the next time I saw her, the towel was bigger. We were wondering if it keeps getting bigger like a real baby. Did it start off as a wash cloth, then a hand towel, then a bath towel?:lmao: I wanted to follow them around just to watch. We saw them in the park once walking around, and we wondered if they tried to put it on rides and stuff. We look for them every time, but I haven't seen them since a year or two ago.:rotfl:

    Yeah, I'm not sure how this couple flies under the radar like they do. They've been around for awhile, I did my CP in 2000. I'm surprised they don't get more mention as legend as they are with CMs. It's funny how so many people know the tattoo guy and the Yeti man, but this family hasn't quite made it to that level of recognition. They certainly have a "unique" enough story to stick in peoples' minds.

    There are a bunch of rumors floating around (all based around the same idea - either lost or weren't able to have a child, the wife took it hard and the husband plays along) but I have NO idea what the real details are. Not really any of my business either. But it's sad if there's even the slightest grain of truth to it.

    I wouldn't mind sitting next to the couple at the restaurant. Their "baby" is probably a pretty quiet kid.

    I have never heard of the towel baby couple, the Tattoo man OR the Yeti guy. I would love to hear more details about all of them.

    I bet they are not allowed in Victoria and Alberts now. :)

    Seriously, this really sounds like an urban legend that keeps getting spread around by the cast members.

    It sounds similar to the story about the old woman who sits at the GF with bags of groceries or something.

    I don't hang out at the GF, so it could be true, but the stories do seem to morph...

    I can tell you this is not a myth or urban legend! I've met them! I worked at CRT during my CP in 2001 and they came in a few times. We'd always have to acknowledge the "baby." The characters would also have to take pictures with it as well. It was obviously very odd, but you can't help feeling bad for them because something is obvioulsy not right.

    OMG--that is so sad. But on the other hand, I don't know if I could keep a straight face. I think I'm a hypocrite!

    I've heard of the towel baby...mostly when I was on my CP. I never saw the couple though.

    I've met the tattoo guy too...he's come into the Disney Store where I work a few times. Even in the middle of winter he's wearing shorts and a tank top to show off his tattoos. :sad2:

    "Tattoo Guy" and "Yeti Man" both frequent the Adventurer's Club whenever they are in town. I've yet to see the towel baby couple there, but really, I don't think a bar is an appropriate place for an infant. ;)

    Wow, I have never heard of any of this beofre, but it is very interesting. But I have a question about the tatoo man....why is that something that stands out? Just because he has tatoos?

    It's because he has SO many Disney tattoos. And tries to show off as many as possible.

    We were gently warned about him at the start of the CP. Nothing bad, but Disney has a clothing policy that even men have to wear shirts in the parks at all times. We were given a heads up that sometimes he likes to try and take off his shirt to display even more tattoos so you'd have to go and tell him to put his shirt back on. (the warning wasn't totally about him - but about all men that try and take off the shirt because they're hot, and he was an example of someone easily recognizable that tries to do it)
