Every year, we return to Orlando. Instinct makes us do this. We are like the salmon who must swim upstream to spawn, and die. They are lucky. We must go to theme parks...

I think we've all gotten stuck behind a group suffering from TPS.
In adults, it's thinking the that employees are out to screw you over. Really now, I don't get my jollies out of telling your kids they can't ride. The rules are there for a reason jackass! Parents think I'm trying to get them not to ride so I don't have to work. Sure, that makes a whole bunch of sense, considering there are 6000 other people who are going to ride this ride today. Kicking you out really doesn't make my day go any better.
As such, you get some very challenging questions:
"What time does the 3:00 parade start?"
"Will the monorail take me to Sea World?"
"Can I rent a room in the castle?"
"Is the water in the river real?"
Oh, the list goes on and on and I am not exaggerating.
That question is almost surreal! It must be hard biting your lip in situations like these.
Please tell us more about it! This is too funny.
i was a teenage rollercoaster designer
"I thought I could meet Walt here."
"I am staying at a WDW resort. You mean I don't get in the parks for free?"
Asked of cast members all the time, "Do you live here?"
Asked of Splash Mountain ride ops, "Does this ride go upside down?"
And, the mother of all funny lines: I once had a guest say this to me: "Those elephants look pretty good but they are nothing compared to that Shamu at Sea World. Now that thing looks real!"
"Is it hot in there?" --- No, I'm wearing a fur suit and it's 100 degrees with 99.9 percent humidity. Not hot at all.
"Are those things air conditioned?" -- Yes, can't you hear the fan and feel the ice cold air coming out of Tigger's mouth?
and I thought it was funny when people would say "It must be great to work here" ---yeah right!
Anyway I was standing at the front of the store as a greeter and overheard a lady say to her friend...
"Wow, they have them putting on Amercian accents so it can be more like the stores in the states..."
We joked about that for the rest of the year

Is it open? No. Is it open? No. Is it open? No. Is it open? No.
Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
