Today, at dinner.

Adrian: “So, what are the rules for the DisneyWorld trip this week?”
Me: “Rules?”
Adrian: “Well, you’re not the easiest to travel with, Noa.”
Adrian: “You’re proving my point right there.”
Me: “I don’t have rules for you on vacations. You’re a grown-ass man.”
Adrian: “You fucking liar. You have rules for me all the time. The only difference is now I’m trying to be preemptive to avoid the inevitable ass-chewing for not following a previously unstated rule.”
Me: “I didn’t have any in mind, but now that you’re being a huge dick about it, I’m going to come up with some awesome rules.”
Adrian: “Such as?”
Me: “Every time you see Goofy, you must cartwheel into someone.”
Adrian: “I don’t know how to cartwheel.”
Me: “Which will only make it better. Every time you see any Mickey shaped object, even vaguely so, you have to shout I LOVE THE FEEL OF FUR ON MY TAINT.”
Adrian: “No.”
Me: “You brought this on yourself. Every time you see Mary Poppins, that bitch gets a punch to her box.”
Adrian: “Only if I can shout HERE’S YOUR SPOONFUL OF SUGAR.”
Me: “I love you.”

Rules For DisneyWorld

  • Every time our nieces take a picture with a Princess, you have to, very obviously, fart on said Princess.
  • Must picket It’s A Small World for child labor violations. Bongos=Bonus Points.
  • Upon entering each park, we must fervently convince a nearby parkgoer that this is, in fact, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • We must spin fast enough on the teacups that we unbolt one of them while creating a centrifugal time warp, recreating my fondest childhood memory with my stepfather (provided they don’t remember me and I am allowed back on the teacups)
  • Adrian must be mistaken for Steven Tyler on the Aerosmith Rockin’ RollerCoaster. I will provide a mouth stretcher along with copious scarves and meth. I will provide no explanation for having a mouth stretcher in my possession.
  • Must be shithoused on rum and demand parley in line for The Pirates Of The Caribbean.
  • Adrian must greet all characters in a manner fitting to their dress. Sniffing Goofy’s ass, mousetrapping Chip and Dale, and harpooning Ariel.
  • I must hand Belle the card of a Domestic Violence Counselor with a knowing look and a gentle hug.
  • Someone’s tits, painted to look like Jack Skellington and Sally, must be seen on a coaster picture.
  • I must bring my EMF detector, nightvision goggles, and fake scream on the Haunted Mansion ride. Adrian must act like there is a camera crew following us inside.
  • One and/or both of us must be inconsolably afraid during the fireworks show. I will pay Adrian $100 if he wears a child leash during this.
  • Everyone we speak to at the airport must be convinced that you’re Dog The Bounty Hunter’s Fairy Tale counterpart, Totes M’Goats.
  • Must demand at one restaurant to eat something “Authentically Orlandan.”

I would LOVE to see your suggestions for our DisneyWorld Rules (for me and for Adrian). I’ll be taking photos/video of my favorites and posting them on Twitter and Facebook (much to the embarrassment of Adrian’s entire family, who are going with us). What else should he do?

Park yourself on main street in front of the magic kingdom. When the park closes and they try to kick you out, tell them you’re part of the #occupy movement, and you’re not leaving until real reform happens. Those kids from “It’s a Small World” need to get paid real wages (or deported, whatever you prefer). #occupydisneyworld

One of you has to wear a furry costume. At the first sight of Goofy or Pluto, you have to insist he is your father.

When you see Pluto, go on a long, angry rant about about what bullshit it is that he’s not a planet anymore, and how you still believe in him.

Ally November 21, 2011 at 10:21 am

I don’t have any rules to add, but I will offer you a word of warning.

Be wary of the people in costumes. I went with my family a few years back and we all were a little disturbed by how touchy feely the Tigger was being. Soon after we got back from out trip, it was discovered that we weren’t the only ones Tigger was a little too excited about.

Let’s just hope that the wonderful thing about this Tigger was that he was the only one.

“Let’s just hope that the wonderful thing about this Tigger was that he was the only one.”

That. Was. Fucking. Genius.

Alpandia November 21, 2011 at 10:40 am

You could just Occupy Main Street – since you will have the bongos ready for It’s a Small World (ugh *shudder* those dolls are going to come to life one night and slaughter everyone).

Anytime you’re on a ride/movie/walking-past-a-ride where something “spits” at you – like the camels by Aladdin, water works in Honey I Shrunk the Audience, etc…. you have to start screaming, “ARGH! IT Burns! The Acid is eating my skin!”

You could always do my favorite thing: When you are on Pirates and you come to that little bump before the drop, throw your hands in the air and start screaming like it’s a big plunge. There’s always at least one person in your boat who will honestly think you’re going over Niagara falls if you do that ;)

Now that I know there’s a drop, I’ll be overacting the SHIT out of that motherfucker. It’s gonna be fucking sweet.

While on Tom Sawyer’s Island Adrian must wear blackface and sing ‘Mammy’. You may sit by idly and let hilarity ensue when the NAACP gets all over him like Gloria Allred on Herman Cain.

And while you’re at it, find that snotty bitch from The Princess and the Frog and demand my $12 back. That movie sucked worse than an Amish whore.
Jen recently posted..We Don’t Need No Edukashun

Carrie - Cannibalistic Nerd November 21, 2011 at 11:14 am

You’re on to something here, Jen. Every talking character you meet, point out plot holes and ask them ridiculous questions like “Snow White, do you know exactly what kind of poison was put in that apple because every time I’ve tried it the victim always dies. I never get the coma I was hoping for.”

Andi November 21, 2011 at 11:40 am

Hmm, let’s see:

Play Marco Polo on Tom Sawyer Island. Try to recruit gangs of random children to join you.

At the top of the little “dive” into the Pirates of the Carribean ride, imitate the talking skull on the bridge right down to the creepy laugh.

Freak out at the Haunted Mansion, start crying and carrying on about demons and evil houses. Try to make enough ruckus that they have to stop the ride and escort you off, then act like they are the saviors of the universe.
On the Roger Rabbit ride in Toontown, yell “Shave and a haircut, two bits!” at every character.

Spin the teacups hard enough to make yourself dizzy. After exiting, walk funny past the line, like you can’t get your bearings. Try to upset the more nervous children. Bonus points for vomiting in the bushes.

I’m out of ideas and the cat just bit me for typing.
Andi recently posted..Sci Fi — Actually, Fantasy Sunday

Noa November 22, 2011 at 12:38 am

I really was kicked off the teacups there in 2000. We unbolted one we had it going so fast. Disney was not pleased. We had the centripetal force worked up to a point where I was, quite literally, unable to sit forward.

I hope they don’t recognize me, because that was awesome.

Kelly November 21, 2011 at 11:51 am

I have never been to Disney World or Land, so I need to enlist the help of Misty to sue my parents for stifling my childhood.

Try to get Donald Duck to put pants on.

Find Daisy, and call her a whore for not wearing anything to cover her tail.

Chase Minnie and Mickey around with mouse traps.

Throw a bucket of water on Ariel to see if she’ll turn back into a mermaid.

I don’t know if there’s a “A Bug’s Life” section, but you should bring a can of Raid if there is.

Key/egg Lightening McQueen.

Should I go on? Need me to meet you there? Coordinate our watches and all that?

You should go t o Downtown Disney and when the Rainforest Cafe “erupts” run around screaming “The volcano is erupting! Everyone run for your lives!” Bonus points if you start pushing people out of your way as you run to “safety”. Double bonus points if some of the people you push get knocked to the ground.

Tell Cinderella that she hasn’t made a mortgage payment on the Enchanted Castle in years so it is going into foreclosure. Inform her that you are there to make sure she packs her shit and gets the fuck out. Also be sure to put that little yellow sign on the door stating that the castle has been foreclosed.
