A Disneyland Vocabulary Primer

Courtesy (n)
1.excellence of manners or social conduct; polite behavior.
2. a courteous, respectful, or considerate act or expression.

You should not, for example, push your way through the line- even while saying "Excuse me"- to get to the other 2 people you were with who couldn't be bothered to wait for you while you went to the bathroom.
And, more subtly, you should not crowd around my 2 little girls standing alone in the kiddy ride line until you are in front of them.

Integrity (n)
adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
A prime example of integrity is when you see a digital cameralying on the pool deck, you take it to the hotel's lost and found and buy your own instead of taking mine.

This world would be such a nice place if it wasn't for all the damn people in it

Happiest place on earth?
My purse was stolen off the seat beside me while I watched my son perform at backstage Disney. They took our vacation $ ! BUT God has a way of turning negatives into positives! A complete stranger saw me BAWLING, listened to my phone conversation with my Husband, Walked over and handed me $100.00! When I left CA 3 Days later, I still had $40.00 Pray for the thieves! God will use this to work on thier hearts!

Oh no! That's awful. We haven't been to a large amusement park in a very long time. Now, just remembering the crowds and rude people, I'm not sure that I really WANT to go. Ugh!
