It’s that time again Main Streeters! Have you overheard random silliness while standing in line at a Disney Park? How about when walking around or at your favorite restaurant? We sure have too! The past three editions of this fun series were great, so I thought we were due for a fourth installment! So without further delay, here are even MORE funny things overheard while at Disney, enjoy!
“Whew, you sure smell like beer!” ~ A man said this while picking up his two year old in line at the Haunted Mansion. I really was waiting for the kid to have a witty comeback, but it never came.
“Tomorrow we’re going to Animal Kingdom to ride the rapids at Kilimanjaro Safari.” Overheard at Epcot while waiting for Spaceship Earth. Better get the white rhino’s a tube, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
“You’be been bugging me all week. I’m ready to get on a plane and head back home, but then you’d just complain for 18 hours straight there too.” A Grandma saying this to her Grandchild blowing a fit over not getting yet another souvenir at Mouse Gear. Poor Granny reached her breaking point!
“I heard that Disney is buying out Universal, and there will be a long train ride from the Magic Kingdom over to the Wizzarding World of Harry Potter. I can’t wait for that!” Keep waiting, not happening.
“Did you know that you can get a spiked version of LeFou’s Brew at Gaston’s Tavern if you ask for it? It’s two dollars more I think.” Hmm…. interesting. Yet not true. Unless there are Cast Members who keep a flask of booze in their pocket and run a side business back there.
“The Sorcerer’s Hat is being taken down because too many people protested it being there, so Disney finally gave in.” Oh man, you hear all KINDS of things near the hat deconstruction sight! Too many to name!
Now, here are some entries that Main Streeters have sent in!
Cindy B~ My favorite was “I can’t believe there’s so many strollers here. Who brings little kids to a place like this? ” then proceeded to ask me if they were heading in the right direction to Dumbo.
Olivia D~ Favorite thing I overheard, when I was entering the Haunted Mansion line and this family approaches the cast member standing near the entrance and asked if this was the line for the monorail.
Tori G~ As an ex CM I have hundreds of these! One of my favorites was a woman over in the French pavilion at Epcot. She said to her friend: “Wow, is that the real Eiffel Tower?” Her friend replied “don’t be an idiot…” and I was about to think ‘good on you’ when she added “the real one is in Vegas!” What?!
Lydia S~ I have heard people talking several times over the years about getting pics with Sponge Bob… LOL!
Alicia P~ “Why are all these people here? Does no one work?!” Ummmmm you’re here too…so….
