Things You'll Never Hear Again at Disney World

October 3, 2019, 3:48 PM

My wife and I were talking the other night about how much a visit to Disney World has changed over the years. We used to visit Disney when we were dating as teenagers (in the 70s), and while we were reminiscing it occurred to us that some things are gone for good and are never coming back.

So for you longtime visitors, what have you said or have heard other people say at Disney in the past that you realize nobody ever says anymore?

I'll put in the first one as an example.

"Hey! Everybody make sure their watch is set on Eastern Time so we can meet at the flagpole at noon and catch the monorail over to the Polynesian Resort for lunch."

"We need to buy more E tickets."

It's too hot and I am too tired to walk. Let's just hop on an Omnibus and ride around to Japan.

Hi, I need to buy three 36 exposure rolls of 200 ASA 35MM kodachrome film. Oh, and can I get my change in Disney Dollars please?

Ugh! I hate those people who get off the ride and blow past this lovely film about Norway, besides...these seats are SO comfortable!

I wonder when the Israel/Equitorial Africa/Spain pavillions will open at Epcot.

“Hotel parking is free here.”

Are there any reservation times still available for the Diamond Horseshoe show today?

For me, this would be the late 80's .....

"None of the rides has more than a 5 minute wait"

"There's no wait line to see any of the characters"

"Parking is only $7"

"Admission is $31 to the Magic Kingdom, or $110 for a 4 day, 3 park ticket"

"I can't believe how empty the park is" (Off-season Oct/Nov)

"Let's go and ride 20,000 leagues under the sea"

"Let's go on Journey into Imagination again, it was an awesome ride"

"Body wars was great Dad, can we do it again"

........... and many many more memories of what Disney used to be ....

"Remind me to pick up one of those 'invisible dog' leashes at the Main Street Magic Shop on our way out of the park today."

"I think I'll catch breakfast at the Crystal Palace today before rope drop. That buffet is so good and it only takes a few minutes."

I have said that I'd like to go to Disney Quest...

"I'd like to go to Pleasure Island."

"I'd like to stay at Dixie Landing resort." (Now part of Port Orleans resort.)

"It's off season at Disney!" (ok, they may have what 'they' call off season, but...

"Aren't you glad the construction is finished?"

@Sarah - You can actually hear that in Tiffins (and Nomad Lounge) since that is the name of a custom beer offered on tap in the DAK restaurant and bar.

"No need for a reservation, we have plenty of tables available for our character meal at 6PM."

Tomorrow will spend some time at the Penny arcade on Main Street.

Darn it. My bag strap got caught in the entrance turnstile.

Look at the Swan Boats!

See that canal? There used to be Swan Boats down there.

Let’s go to RiverCountry while it’s so hot, then back to the park later

“Let’s use the Disney Skyliner to get to EPCOT. Don’t worry, it has a flawless operational record without incident.”
Too soon?

Oh, we’re forgetting the ultimate thing you’ll never hear at Disney World again:

“There aren’t enough characters here.”

"Let's go on Horizons again, and pick a different ending!"

"Lets get OUT (of the MK) in time to miss nothing of the evening show!"

[ In the early days, when there was the Electrical Water Pageant on the lake, followed by the fireworks on the lake as well... lol ...not inside the park !!! ]

"Let's do a picnic on the Swan Boats, there is no waittime either !"
