When Guests visit Walt Disney World, there is so much to see and do. Some Guests may want to hop in line for the Haunted Mansion, others may be looking forward to Festival of Fantasy, snagging the perfect spot on Main Street, U.S.A., while others may be interested in scouting out all of the best food options around. Whatever it is that you like to do at Disney World, just remember, there is always someone watching.
Another pastime that many Guests tend to do, whether they realize it or not, is people watching. Some Guests may intentionally do this, sitting on a bench or the hub grass in front of Cinderella Castle for long periods of time while taking in their surroundings. Other Guests may just be wanting to take a minute to relax, and while they do so, will notice all of the the other Guests around them. At times, people watching can be joyful as you may see others having the most magical day of their life, other times may be funny as you see some children looking anything but happy while at Disney, and the juxtaposition is just too great to not laugh at.
For some professional people watchers, it seems that creating backstories for those around them is key! Disney With Kels (@disneywithkels) has a series where they give others around them a backstory and they are truly hilarious, and of course, likely not based in reality as the Guest doesn’t actually know those around and is just making up these scenarios.
Disney With Kels notices how “Dave” has a wife who made him bring an extra stroller to carry around popcorn buckets and Minnie ears. Brent” is scooting past “its a small world” on an ECV solely for the purpose of riding a scooter around Magic Kingdom while listening to true crime. “Bill and Jamie” have my favorite backstory, as the couple pushes an empty stroller with no kids in site, they completely missed their fictitious child jumping out of the stroller in Tomorrowland. “Gail” ditched her family for a turkey leg.

At Magic Kingdom there is so much to see and do! Cinderella Castle is decked out for the 50th anniversary and now, Festival of Fantasy and Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire have returned.
