Funniest Overheard Comments Part II

During our most recent WDW trip, we overheard the following question posed to someone during our tram ride from the parking lot to the AK entrance: "Are there real animals here?"

That comment is hard to top, but we are sure that there are others!

I can't think of any off the top of my head but I always enjoy these threads.

I don't think it's that outrageous of a comment. Disney is known for its animatronics and its ability to make fantasy look like reality. If you've never been to Disney before or if you haven't read much about the parks, I can see someone wondering if what they're about to see are real animals or just very real-looking fake animals. Especially if the comment was made by a kid.

Now, if the comment was made by someone from the DIS .... that's a whole 'nother story!!

That reminds me of our first trip to WDW. We'd seen the animatronic animals everywhere. We were on the riverboat when our youngest--nine at the time--pointed and excitedly yelled, "Hey! Look! A REAL squirrel!"

Just EDIT your title to correct the spelling.

Where did the OP go?

I think that if anyone was about to enter AK, they would have found out that it had real animals before they decided to go there. I wouldn't think most people would just pick a random place to vacation without knowing a single thing about it.

I am not sure this qualifies, but it always cracks me up when people get on busses and then say they are not sure where the bus is going. Or, they pop their heads in and ask the driver "Does this bus go to..."
I know sometimes the screens on the front of the bus are wrong, but it always makes me laugh!
