Amusement Parks: The Rides Are Only PART of the Amusement

Truly a reality TV show could be filmed daily at amusement parks.  I never realized the name  "Amusement Park" could be so literal until last year's October trip to Walt Disney World with my husband and kids.  A woman, clearly not an American, was wearing spandex pants.  And she wasn't exercising or on her way to the gym.  But that is not the worst part.  When she bent over to attend to her children, the material went see-through and we were all treated to a Halloween G-String.  The pants were pretty much nonexistent.  As in INVISIBLE!   Yes, at a family place.  The look on our faces was priceless I am sure!

The Happiest Place On Earth.

The Land of Rated G Movies...

And I had to shield the eyes of my then four year old and two year old daughters.


Since then my husband and I have been to Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL and this past weekend we went to Universal's Islands of Adventure in Orlando without the girls.  We take a yearly weekend trip sometime in November for our anniversary.  I guess I had a memory lapse or something because it wasn't until later in our day at Islands of Adventure on Saturday that I realized the general population could be rating's gold for a reality show.  I didn't (read: could NOT) get pictures of everything that we saw after that point in time that was horribly wrong but here are some:

This dude was clearly not from here.  Acid washed jeans?!  Hello, 1986.  Black and white zebra sunglasses?  I had those in 1987.  Really.  Maybe that's where they went!!
He reminded us of the character Christian from the movie "Clueless."
Just thought it was funny her bags and/or camera needed to be kept warm. 
Harry Potter fanatics:  More on this in another post.  
It was ca-razzzzy!
This boy is in a straight up dress/cape!!  If it was from the Harry Potter collection it truly looked more like a dress.  Poor kid.  He thought he was rockin' the look of wizardry. 
Santa Claus apparently vacations in Downtown Disney.  Later, he ate lunch at the T-Rex restaurant right near us.  I really wanted to climb into his lap and start rattling off my Christmas list.  ;o)
It's Super Boy!!
We also saw some teenaged boys (about 17 years old) in air brushed "Toy Story" t-shirts.  Now you KNOW they weren't from here!  They'd be beat up in no time.  They wouldn't stop staring and I just could NOT take a picture with them looking at me!

Faces blurred to protect those completely lacking any style:
No, no.  That's not a sweater under the tank top.  
Though I wish it were.
 And, not just one purse man bag, but TWO.  One was hot pink with fringe!  These two weren't Americans either though that is hardly an excuse.  I also think he was wearing "jams."  Anyone remember jams?!
I told my husband that he had probably seen the "Friends" episode where Joey has the "man bag."  You remember, right?  He was thinking, "Amerrrrican men wear-a the pursssse."  (It isn't as funny if you don't hear me saying it.)
Yeah, that one.  He wanted to look sophisticated for an audition and he got the bag from Rachel.  The world wasn't ready for Joey and his bag...  :o)

And lastly, look at the kind of crazy I married and went on the trip with!  ;o)
I am so thankful for our fun weekend away.  :o)
