    It's so true that there are many things which are in-jokes for alumni and al Cast Members alike. I was browsing and came across these Disney Memories elsewhere here on They are so true. We are forever changed. It really is incredibly difficult to remove all that pixie dust which we ammssed over our year with the mouse. ;D

    Feel free to add your own. I'll start. :)

    21) Whenever someone says "Goodevening" you think "We are gathered here tonight ......."

    Any more?

    25) Everyone thinks you are a Scout because you keep pointing with two fingers.

    (seriously, still 'point' with two fingers or my whole hand!)

    26) You find it BAD SHOW when somebody's tattoo or piercing peeks out. That should be covered by your garments or put elsewhere!

    wen im at work i always find that im constantly referring to the housekeeping staff as "custodial".....

    like wen i need a cubicle cleaned i am always like, yeh il call custodial and every one looks at me like im really weird!!!

    and the pointing thing as well always gets me! but definately cos im working with sick kids i always find that i tell them stories about disney to cheer them up.....liike if we have to do blood tests on kids then i sit there and i tell them random stories about mickey mouse and ask them who their favourite princess now wen certain doctors are on the ward they grab me to get me to go in and tell disney stories!!!!

    it really is a case of "this one time at band camp" syndrome! lol

    i find myself doing a good turn type thing and then thinking i must remember to call it into to 7006!!! lol

    guess we can never forget the magic eh? once a disney cast member always a disney cast member!

    32) When you are doing your own shopping, and you see someone looking around and you tell him/her: "Are you looking for something?"

    33) When you are doing your own shopping, you pass someone and smyle...a moment later, the same person come to you and ask "sorry, do you know where the soap is?"

    It haapens at least twice a week...

    On another note, don't you think some of that has actually made your life a bit more positive? I now see myself chatting to bus drivers, or being nice to that cashier at Tesco's and then I realize that's still the Disney bug inside of me. To be honest, there's not a single thing I have taken from Disney that I really hate - even pointing with two fingers seems kinda cool, because no one else does it - and I'm sure not to offend anyone...

    Yes, I'm always polite and chatty with people in the service business. Which is extremely unusual in Norway, most people over here are SO RUDE! Like New Yorkers, LOL, or so I've heard...

    I guess I was more like that when I first got home.

    I had my interview for uni. two days after I got home and I left by telling my tutor to "Have a great Day!". Not a common parting greeting here in the west of Scotland! ;D

    But I'm not so aware of doing it anymore. :( I guess I've been "ground down" by the not-so-cheesy-happy-smiley attitude here. Sad but true. Lol. ::) ::)

    34) You offer to take photos for random tourists. (However, most of them think you're going to steal their camera. Hee hee. ;D)

    35) You see someone wearing a Disney item of clothing and immediately want to comment. i.e. "Wow! So is Minnie your favourite character? I love Tink myslef." Lol. ;D

    Can't argue with No.36, The subway one.

    I don't think I could bring myself to eat another Seafood sub again.

    At work, I started saying to my fellow Yorkshire-ites "Have a Nice Day". Needless to say, nothing was said. They just looked at me funny-like, laughed (the odd one shook their head with a little grin) and walked away. I was kind of embarassed.LOL

    That's not Yorkshire talk either. Or UK talk even.

    May I add;

    (37) Walking around in your work clothes, and having females (either a LOT younger than you or much, much older) start giggling and saying how cute you look. Having said that, which other job would I wear giant white socks and grey shorts?

    38) Having nothing to talk about (except disney) cause you have been saying the same things over and over and over again everyday for a year.

    Hi, welcome to Norway, my name is Gry I'm gonna take care of you to day!
    Yes, I'm really from Norway. We come here and we work for a year.
    Then we go home cause the VISA expires. And NO- we can not stay longer!
    The toilet? just around the corner on your right side.
    KidCot? Inside the merchendise store, third room, left side!
    Yes, Illuminations will go on, even if it's raining.
    And as we say in Norwegian, takk for besøket og velkommen tilbake, that meens thank you for coming and welcome back!

    (39) Being asked to say something in English.

    (Presuming they meant in an accent or whatever. I sincerely hope they meant that :-\)
