The funniest thing happened to me when I went to DisneyWorld in 2006 with a group of travel agents to check out Epcot and MGM Studios.
To backtrack a bit, I had been to Disneyland with my parents when I was a kid and the only ride that was closed when we visited was Pirates of the Caribbean. We didn’t think it was that big of a deal until we got home and everyone commented about how they said it was their favorite ride so we felt like we’d really missed something when had to admit when didn’t get a chance to go on it.
Fast forward to when I had children and we arranged a surprise trip for them in which my parents were also joining us. My dad talked about how the only ride he really wanted to go on was the one we missed years ago so we couldn’t believe it when we got there and much to our dismay, it was closed for renovations !! We had a great laugh and told the story many times.
This catches you up to my trip to Disneyworld where I told this story on the first day of our group meeting. The woman who was in charge audibly gasped after and started apologizing before I could even decipher what she was talking about. Well, lo and behold, when we headed out the next morning, just look at the reason for her gasp ! I guess it just wasn’t meant to me but what are the crazy odds that it would be closed for a third time ?
