Overheard in Flahrida

“Toucan? That’s in the Swan. We're in the Dolphin.”

--Hotel security guy to confused conference attendee at Exhibit Hall entrance.

“Do they have a Wal-Mart in DisneyWorld?”

--Giant tourist dad in leisure wear in the Screen Door General Store checkout line.

“If you like crowds, they have the biggest Mickey Mouse store in the world right down the street.”

--Well-meaning high school teacher to me, at the booth. [Ed: who likes crowds?]


  • while we're on the quotes, i overheard this one today from one of my admissions desk people talking to a museum guest:

    "Oh, you're from Poland. Did you ever see a polar bear?"
