I've heard Disneyland guests ask many dumb questions to CMs. Here are a few I remember off the top of my head:

How much is FastPass (or FastTrack/SpeedPass/EasyPass/SpeedTrack/FastCrap/etc...)?

Do the logs/boats go upside down? (on Splash/Pirates)

How do I ride this?

Can I go through the exit if I have an Annual Pass?

Are we outside? (inside Pirates, in the middle of the day)

Are the Pirates interactive?

Is the alcohol the Pirates were drinking real?

Are you Peter Pan? (in a Pirates costume)

Is that really the wait time?

Why won't you let me in yet? (when holding a FastPass ticket they just received)

When's the 9 o'clock Fantasmic start?

Why is this place called Disneyland?

Are the canoes on a track?

Can you stop the ride-- my hat fell off?

Oh well, that's enough for now... I'm sure other people have more to add.

Not only are the dumb questions frustrating but when they get the names wrong - that's annoying.

"Where's the Haunted House Ride?"

"When's Fantastic?"

"There's the "It's a Little World" ride."

"Ooh, there's the line for Star Wars."

"Let's ride the runaway trains."

"Wow, isn't Snow White's castle beautiful."

:mad:

Wow, Where to Begin? I've heard a lot of strange things.

"Where's The George Washington Ride?"
(Great Moments w/ Mr. Lincoln)

"Look! It's Donald's House!"
(Mickey's House)

"Where's Pooh?"
(Heard while in the Country Bear Jamboree)

"Hey, There's Splash Mountain"
(pointing to Splash Mountain)
"No, That's The Pirates Ride!"
(Friend's answer to the above)

"Where's the Castle?"

(ahem)....

Where's Magic Mountain? (meaning the attraction, not the theme park)

Guest: Do you work here? (speaking to a CM in Tomorrowland attractions costume)
CM: No, I just got off my shift at Taco Bell, and came here after work
Guest: Oh. Okay.

(Guest to CM in liederhosen, standing in front of the Matterhorn, under a Matterhorn sign)
Where's the Matterhorn?

Do you work here? (guest to a CM in liederhosen)

Guest: Is there someplace I can buy a drink? (to busser in front dining area of Pizza Port)
CM: Well, there's this restaurant right here..... (pointing to the door)

Your eternal soul... AND your first-born.

Do the logs/boats go upside down? (on Splash/Pirates)
Repeatedly... but only between the hours of 2:00 pm and 4:12 pm.

How do I ride this?
With your head in a bucket of manure.

Can I go through the exit if I have an Annual Pass?
Only if your last name is Christ.

Are we outside? (inside Pirates, in the middle of the day)
Yes. You were in line for soooo long the sun has set.

Are the Pirates interactive?
Sure. But only if you ask the RIGHT questions.

Is the alcohol the Pirates were drinking real?
Absolutely... whoever heard of a Pirate drinking mineral water?

Are you Peter Pan? (in a Pirates costume)
Yes. Times have gotten tough and this is my day job.

Is that really the wait time?
No, it's in fact MUCH MUCH longer... and that's not really the entrance either.

Why won't you let me in yet? (when holding a FastPass ticket they just received)
Because I was put on this Earth soley to inconvenience YOU. It's taken all these years for you to finally cross my path. Ah ha!

When's the 9 o'clock Fantasmic start?
Right after the 8:59 Moment of Great Anticipation.

Why is this place called Disneyland?
Because marketing felt "Go to Hell Land" was a bit rude.

Are the canoes on a track?
Only when they go upside down.

Can you stop the ride-- my hat fell off?
Your hat probably jumped off... it's best to let it run wild.

Oh well, that's enough for now... I'm sure other people have more to add.

YES! When people refer to the HM as the "Haunted House" it bugs me so much!

-The fast train. (refering to Big Thunder)
-Star Wars (refering to Star Tours)
-The Log Ride (refering to Splash Mtn.)
-The Boat Ride (I'm pretty sure they meant Jungle Cruise)

That ticks my off so much too, I cant stand when they do that. I mean, at least take the time to look at a map and try to find where they are going, or realize that Walt didn't want a Haunted House, he wanted a Haunted Mansion.

Just to really rile up some more CM's that are real virgins to "stupid guests questions" I am typing most of these down on this topic board and translating into Japanese charactors on flash cards to take with me when I visit TDS :D

Now don't forget these:

Where's Fantasia/Fantastic/Fantasy?

Where's Magic Mountain??


(at 11:45 PM) Is there another parade tonight??

(standing next to DEP @ DCA sign) Is the Electrical Parade here at Disneyland?

And the most idiotic question of all, at least to someone in ODV:

(at an ice cream/glow wagon) Do you sell churros/popcorn/coke/cotton candy/funnel cakes/hot dogs/turkey legs here?

i've asked a CM this at DL recently... i was bored, and i wanted to know what the response is.
"wheres the Main Street Eletrical Parade?"
of course, he told me it was at DCA, but i told him it belongs here, and he figured out that i was sort of joking, and agreed with me. but we've gone though that discussion before...

"Toilet, toilet!" - Japanese tourist asking me for the nearest bathroom.
