Just curious, folks... How do you deal with those "line holders" and "cutters" in line? Light hearted and humorous ideas and stories appreciated- it is Disney, afterall!
Once they find their party, I like to drag my four kids forward and pretend like I am meeting my party right in front of them. It's only awkward for a minute while the strangers I am pretending to join realize they don't know me. But I am endearing... - DisneyOnesie  381.5 #482 1-23-14 8:25AM Like(4)  Reply
I never mind line holders because what difference does it really make? Line cutters are a different story. I will and have said something. They never argue with me. Of course I am giving them my "Don't Mess With Me Look". It's NASTY!  Just ask my kids, they know it well. It's even working on my nearly 4 yr old grandson.  - DisneyGrandma  570.8 #269 1-23-14 7:15AM Like(2)  Reply
I completely agree. I line hold all the time and it really doesn't make a difference if a few people join you because they were eating or going to the bathroom (etc.). But yes, line cutting is very unfair and it makes me so pissed when someone does.  - BrerRabbit  305.0 #749 1-23-14 12:09PM
I had a FP for tot and there were no cms around. ย As we were walking up to the "check in desk", a group of about 10 girls jumped over the chain into the FP line right ahead of us. Cutting people that were in about a 40 min line. I said "uh..... No! Excuse you!" They let us back in front of them and said "oh sorry you were ahead of us!" As we turned the corner and the CM was telling us which side to go to we let him know what had happened. He said that sadly that happens really often. :( people are so inconsiderate!ย  - Belleslibrary  339.5 #583 1-24-14 3:40PM Like  Reply

Looking for a little help...where in the park would I have heard "oh Susanna" played on a harmonica? It's stuck in my head, and I can't place it! It's not the start of Pirates (banjo). I seem to be thinking its on the train...thanks guys!
Perhaps The Voices of Liberty? I know they sing "Oh Susanna" and start it with a harmonica. O: ) - jennyangel25  15.0 #6918 1-26-13 5:30AM Like(1)  Reply

It's special. Santa Clause is in the parade! And don't forget the pajama party at closing. It's awesome! - IMissDisney  1117.0 #106 8-6-12 10:26PM
We were there in DL for Christmas before. They stopped to let people in to the park before noon due to over capacity. All lines for rides were extra long, the whole park was super crowded. We never seen that much people in the same place before. We didn't get on most of the rides as planned; however, we had the most magical Christmas ever. Lucky we saved our magical morning for that day. - RapunzalK  195.7 #1879 8-7-12 2:02AM Like  Reply

just read this on the wikipedia page... Years ago, the cemetery paid tribute to the Imagineers, much like the one at Florida and Tokyo, but was changed when the queue was expanded some time after the mid-80s, to make room for the handicapped entrance. - wickedale  292.5 #818 7-2-11 12:01AM Like  Reply
