“True Tales: from the files of Stupid Guest Tricks” is an ongoing series, where we share believable stories of park guests’ unbelievable stupidity.
FROM STUPID GUEST TRICKS —
StupidGuestTricks.com is a website founded to provide Disney Cast Members and other theme park employees a place to vent about some of the idiots they’ve dealt with. Most Cast Members will tell you that 99% of the guests they deal with are wonderful, but there’s always that 1% that lead to aggravation — and some pretty funny stories.
Now that Uncle Walt’s Insider has completed its hostile takeover of Stupid Guest Tricks, we can bring you some of our favorite stories that have been collected there over the years. Previous installments: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8 & Part 9.
In Part 10: the stupidity begins in the parking lot, and we prefer to, you know, ride the rides and stuff:
“Always,” but not in the past 18 years
I had this discussion while working a Disneyland parking lot tram:
SG: “What do you mean I can’t park in front of the entrance?! I ALWAYS park there!”
CM: “Those parking spots no longer exist.”
SG: “Since when???”
CM: “Since California Adventure was built.”
Dumb questions from from the Disneyland parking lots
IRSmart1 provides a few of the dumber questions he’s been asked while parking cars or on the tram:
SG: “What do you mean I can’t park closer?! I have kids!!”
SG: “How do I get to Knott’s?”
SG: “How do I get to the hotel?” (No name or clue as to which hotel is given)
SG: “What’s the level of the parking structure called that’s above the top one?”
This is how you want to spend your precious time in the park?
In Animal Kingdom:
SG: “Do you have any dirty bathrooms?”
CM: “Of course not.”
SG: “I’ve been looking all day, but haven’t found any.”
CM: “Why would you want to do that?”
SG: “I wanted to see if what they said about the bathrooms being clean was true.”
