Things Overheard While Standing in Line at WDW

Here’s the original post from our series, the one that started it all! Enjoy!

Disney Parks are so busy all the time, the “down” times when the parks used to be less crowded seem like they’re going away. Busy parks means longer lines for attractions. Some rides and such are so hard to get a FastPass for, and some we’re willing to just wait it out and take our chances on how long it will take. While standing in these lines, we start to get to know our “neighbors” and hear various conversations being had by other guests waiting their turn. Even if you don’t mean to be nosy, you still hear what other people are talking about, and frankly, sometimes it’s funny! So, I thought it would be amusing to write down some of my favorite things overheard by other guests while standing in attraction lines…. here we go!

“I keep looking on the map, and I don’t see where the Cookie Monster meet and greet is.” Look all you want to, Cookie Monster isn’t here!

“This place (MK) would be great for Marlene’s engagement party. Too bad she doesn’t deserve it.” Sour grapes maybe? Poor Maureen!

“I think there’s enough chlorine in the pools so that if kids potty in it, it doesn’t matter.” That one was just gross, no words.

“Wow, you would look so different with straight teeth.” I wasn’t sure where that girl was going with that one, but her friend gave her the stink eye.

“Mommy, when Ariel loses her fins and gets legs, does everyone see her butt?” Just hysterical, and a good question too.

“That’s not Elsa, even I know that. Where’s the real one?” Little girl watching the Festival of Fantasy Parade. Right on kid, the Elsa’s have been a rough one to copy, we understand.

“Now, once the fireworks start, all you adults are going to move so the kids can get up front right?” This lady approached a photography group who had tri-pods set up for two hours in a secluded spot to get pictures. There was room for all, but she didn’t care. The photo crew said, “well, no, we’re not moving the tripods but the kids are welcome to share the space.” She replied “too bad you didn’t get to enjoy Disney Magic as a kid.” Wow. Have a Magical Day lady!

“I hear you can get some great Margaritas back near Dumbo in Fantasyland.” Really, where?

“My favorite country at World Showcase is Greece.” No, it wasn’t Food and Wine time, so there was no Greece. I must have missed that one on the map. Maybe that’s where Cookie Monster is hiding out.

“I paid too much money for this vacation, and you kids would rather play video games in the room than have fun at the “bleeping” Happiest Place on Earth!” I felt sorry for this lady.

“The Cast Members give out free gifts to certain people at the end of the night.” I’ve never gotten anything, must not have been chosen yet!

In addition to people watching, being mindful of what’s being talked about around you can be just as entertaining. Sure, we’d never put our own two cents into the equation, but it’s interesting to hear what others have to say in their own circles. Have you ever heard some funny conversations at Disney? I’ll keep my ears open for more, I hope you enjoyed this and at least got a laugh! ~M

    We have started many conversations in other groups. After riding Kali river 3 times in a row me and the kids, would walk out saying geez, I can’t believe how wet we got. We didn’t think one time would be that bad. The look of horror and the conversations people had telling the people in line, that they need ponchos or they don’t want to get that wet, sure was priceless!

    One of the greatest lines I heard was from a little girl, about 7 or 8, walking into the Captain Eo theater. She was looking at the posters , confused. She turned to her mother and asked her, “why did they paint Michael Jackson black” for the movie.
