Do not trust robotic warewolves

Mummies beat giant monkeys anytime

Always carry quarters for the water cannon.

Eat after riding Hulk and not just before.

Don't take your eyes off your food on the Enchanted Oak Tavern's Terrace ( sadly gone ! ) because the birds will take it.

Don't take your eyes off the Enchanted Oak Tavern because they'll knock it down ( too late ! )

If you see a boat dead in the water don't be surprised if there's a surprise waiting for you around the bend.

Don't drive a boat through the legs of a T-Rex. They always stand at the top of a steep fall.

Always exit a ride backwards so that you think you're leaving the shop instead of entering. It's cheaper that way.

Aim for the fusion exhaust port.

There is (in fact) an alien formerly known as Bo-Bo.

You can't say the word "ass" in a pre-show film.

Alliteration can trump theming when naming things.

Memories can be stuck to (or inside of) the roof of a bug's mouth

And one other thing, the biggest problem with 'Men In Black: Alien Attack' is (*** FOOOOOOMP! ***) ...

... um ... I forgot what I was gonna say.

Actually, I learned that those who THINK everything is always "Super" in T2 end up dying a horrible, painful, death!

Riding the lift hill on HRRR in the rain could potentially be the next torture device used by the CIA.

Training drills on fake aliens will always lead to a real invasion.

NEVER hide in the boathouse!

Horrible monsters really only want to rock out and have fun.

People who do special effects makeup for a living are, well, just a little odd.

Strange blue men who throw food and paint at each other can be enlightening and strangely entertaining!

They are not "invading" they are "escaping."

- 79 cent drink refills????? HELL YEA

- You "think" you're safe hiding in the boat house

- HIP HOP artists at Mardi GRAS make AWESOME concerts

- feel sorry for the poor assistant who has to get your coffee

- Robots... are... EVIL

- there is a radio station near the hat store

- Apparantly, E.T's planet looks like an alien "Small World"

I've learned that staying on-property at USO offers perks that cannot be beat.

The kids who go to Fivel's playland have never heard of Fivel.

Lassie is immortal

Listen to the song on One Fish Two Fish or face a watery death

that the invention of the aluminum beer bottle trumps sliced bread by light years....

and to take it a step further they keep it in an almost frozen deep sleep until they hand it to you and it actually sticks to your hand and your lips in the Florida heat like on "A Christmas Story" with his tongue on the pole...
