In a previous article - Awkward moments at Disney World: Part I - we shared some laughs over things we have all seen and even have happen to ourselves while visiting the Walt Disney World Resorts. We all know we have seen someone slip and fall, trip over something, get on a ride with someone they do not know because they got in the wrong seat and so on. All of these things occur when guests are so overwhelmed with being at Disney they are not paying attention to what they are doing or where they are going.
After years of working as a lifeguard at Disney, I have to say that this is one of the most common “OMG I cannot believe that happened to me” moments. Plus it is one of the most preventable ones. If you have not guessed it from the title, this one refers to women losing their bikini tops at the water parks. Countless women have come down the long and tall waterslides and come out of the water showing all. Bikinis are great and perfect for the pools. However, if you plan on enjoying some of the slides at the water parks, try to wear a one-piece. Trust me on this. There are men who hang around this area in hopes of catching a glimpse of lost bikini tops.
Kids love to play near the fountains at the resorts and theme parks. Some of these fountains are designed for kids to cool off in and run through. However, some are meant to collect coins and not for swimming. Many times you will see smaller children walking around the concrete edge of the fountain. Kids are not the most coordinated when it comes to balancing and whoops…into the fountain they go!! Note to parents: Keep a chance of clothes with you everywhere you go.
Food for Fashion
I have to admit, I have fallen victim to this many times. Especially when I am wearing a white or light-colored shirt. This happens when we are too busy talking about what we are going to do at Disney that we do not pay attention while we are eating and our food ends up becoming a fashion accessory, rather than a meal.
“Hey! I know you!”
This awkward moment occurs when someone runs up to someone and starts talking to them like they know them. This can also happen when you think someone you know is sitting next to you and you start talking before turning around. Then when you turn around you realize you have been talking to a complete stranger. Funny? To the others watching…yes. To the one being laughed at…of course! It may be awkward at first, but everyone involved gets a kick out of it.
Now that you have read the entire list think back and finally admit it…one of these has happened to you!! And I am truly sorry if I have offended any of my readers with this list. These items were meant to be funny and if these items happen to you in the future, laugh it off. You are at Disney! Have a sense of humor!! J
