@startours1 that is REALLY unfair. I am sure there are A LOT of people not on MW that plank as well. - ythdudette 1537.7 #127 8-9-11 12:55PMLikeReply
I saw someone planking on BTMRR's FP machines yesterday and it the guy almost fell on his head. I'm almost positive the CM wasn't doing it to ruin the fun but because of safety reasons. Props to the CM for that. - bren12 38.1 #5669 8-9-11 1:00PMLikeReply
Wow not very cool of them to shoot that hot trend down. - jp04fam 24.6 #7045 8-9-11 1:59PMLikeReply
Lamping? Hahaha. I prefer "benching". Sitting somewhere at the park with my back up against the wall so it looks like I'm sitting on an invisible bench. I do this when I'm tired and there's nowhere to sit lol! - OCdrumGuy 624.7 #369 8-9-11 2:01PMLikeReply
Unless it's the Strawberries daughter Violet or another child owling on their parents lap, I NEVER want to see anyone owling again! - SUUZinOCretiredPLAID 1036.1 #206 8-9-11 2:04PMLikeReply
I say plank away! I personally find it amusing and don't understand why other people care. It's not hurting them. - luvmygreenarmyman 659.5 #344 8-9-11 6:53PMLikeReply
If planking is considered childish,then so be it :] After all, is Disneyland not a place where one channels their inner child? If someone is having fun and being safe and not hurting anyone,then I don't see a problem with it. - VivaHate88 154.0 #2786 8-9-11 8:28PMLikeReply
Boo. The Plankers Union isn't going to like this. - MimiMouse 1049.0 #199 8-9-11 8:33PMLikeReply
@Jackie it's when you sit up as high as you can like an owl (someone correct me if I'm wrong lol) - OCdrumGuy 624.7 #369 8-10-11 1:07AMLikeReply
Boo. Oh well. Owling is so much more classy looking, anyways. - acpowers13 148.8 #2861 8-10-11 1:07AMLikeReply
@jackie Its a fancy type of squatting where you keep a straight face like a perched owl scanning the surroundings. Simple google search will provide better specifics and examples. - bleucheese7 18.9 #8118 8-10-11 1:07AMLikeReply
Yeah Google it haha :) its like... strange squatting. - acpowers13 148.8 #2861 8-10-11 1:10AMLikeReply
I was told by a CM that they (each department) got pictures of planking/owling, & they were told to stop it if they see it for safety. - prettyinpink 10.4 #11641 8-10-11 2:04AMLikeReply
itz because that guy died planking on a building (not at disney) but since then we have 2 say sumthing. - shainabay 150.1 #2843 8-10-11 2:38AMLikeReply
If you cannot say something nice, it's best u keep it to yourself. MW should be fun and positive. Negative people ruin the fun. - Ariel7texas 21.1 #7638 8-10-11 11:34AMLikeReply
Not being able to do it or the fact "some people" can't stand it, Gives it all the more reason to Plank!!
Viva La Planking! I wanna see more! Now more then ever! lol! - ponyboy 22.7 #7365 8-10-11 11:55AMLikeReply
The kids couldn't plank in a photo with McQueen & Mater? I can see if they didn't want them to plank ON them, but don't see the harm next to them. People do all kinds of silly things during character meet n' greets. - MoonWillow 381.3 #646 8-10-11 12:05PMLikeReply
@MoonWillow my son tried planking in front of McQueen. One CM was laughing and said it was fine but another one over ruled her and said planking wasn't allowed. - MissyluvsDisneyland 362.0 #700 8-10-11 12:20PMLikeReply
Disney takes the safety of the guest serious. If they said no planking , it's not because they were being uncool or killing the fun, it's because they want everyone to have a fun and safe day. Planking is funny yes, but when and if it puts someone's safety ask risk, it's not worth it. - PlaidCM 186.4 #2283 8-10-11 12:44PMLikeReply
If you want to lay down go to your hotel room and don't disrespect the great that is Disney - puddy77 267.3 #1285 8-10-11 12:48PMLikeReply
So true plaidcm. Safety is number one at DL. - Polkadobo 385.8 #640 8-10-11 12:51PMLikeReply
Wow startours1 sounds super bitter about planking. I agree with @ponyboy viva la planking!!!! Bring it my wonderful planking friends! (safely of course ) - KissDclown 1089.2 #190 8-10-11 1:10PMLikeReply
I agree as long as it done safely I don't mind. I think it's all in good fun, last plank I saw was at ariels grotto at the window 3 little kids planked on top of eachother, they were having fun so no complaints from me. - chris. 2511.4 #68 8-10-11 2:41PMLikeReply
It's their job to keep them safe - Darla 22.2 #7456 8-10-11 2:43PMLikeReply
Why would you do something that could potentially put ur AP at risk? If a CM as asked you not do do something, there is a reason. If you love and respect Disneyland as I assume most on here do, why disrespect the CMs and the park? - PlaidCM 186.4 #2283 8-10-11 3:14PMLikeReply
I think that with so MANY fun and interesting things to do at DL, why do people need to plank, owl or do other odd activities. I think those are best left for outside the park . JMO - Romec123aKaSmartyPants 751.8 #295 8-10-11 3:29PMLikeReply
@Missyluvs... That's a bummer! It does sound funny and harmless. Maybe the other CM's interpretation of safety is just eliminating it altogether. That's too bad when something has to be eliminated because people can't be trusted to use common sense. - MoonWillow 381.3 #646 8-10-11 3:43PMLikeReply
Disney probably just doesn't like people climbing and laying on stuff. People can get hurt, plus things can get ruined. I tried sitting on those rocks at the entrance to Tomorrowland for a pic, and I got yelled at. Even if they suck, rules are rules - Kari_Bo_Berry 361.5 #702 8-10-11 3:45PMLikeReply
