What's the chance of this happening???? I'm a first grade teacher and teach 6 hours away and ran into one of my students in the first hour I'm in the park 8:0)

That's too funny! - MommaSquared  10.3 #10802 6:30PM
I manage a grocery store six hours away and have run into customers and some of my employees several times. It irritates my wife. - NascarDave  322.2 #794 6:39PM
Lol that's really funny! - ikabon  9.8 #11120 6:40PM
It's a small world after all - Evangeline  270.3 #1161 6:42PM
I ran into a former coworker/friend I hadn't seen in a year yesterday! We were walking directly towards each other and for a sec I thought she was from Mw because of the meetup! - bluefairy  643.8 #312 6:43PM
I live 11 hours away and everytime (15) we have been there we run into at least 1 person from our hometown! - Disneybusmama5  31.7 #5810 6:44PM
Last month I ran into my old boss from when I lived in Hawaii. He lives in NM now and I live in So Cal. - SammyGirl  5.1 #18348 6:46PM
My hubby has bumped into a coworker almost every time we are there. We are over 3 hours away. - CravingDisney  150.1 #2716 6:47PM
My theory is that if you live further away, you usually plan a trip for multiple days and around holidays, weekends, breaks, etc. Other people in your area probably do the same. Bingo bango! You run into each other!  - bluefairy  643.8 #312 6:50PM
Everytime we take my daughter she always runs into someone from school, 6 yr old networking lol - Vegasdsnygurl808  7.0 #14072 6:50PM
I grew up in norcal and now live in LA so my trips to DL are a lot more frequent. Even so, I ALWAYS see somebody I know from back home! - PrincessJ  85.1 #3840 6:55PM
Both my old boss and I had no clue either was going to DL. But whats even more trippy is yes, people go for holidays and such, but how many thousands of people are in the park and what % of those are in line. You can play cat and mouse all day and never even know due to the volume of people. So thars what adds to the craziness about these situations for me. - SammyGirl  5.1 #18348 6:55PM
as a teenager in 1986 a neighbor and I were talking about how funny it would be if we saw each other at EXPO 86. Since we were going to be there the same time. Sure enough I walk in and not more then 5 min later. I hear my nick name they gave me. and it was them. WOW!!! - littlpluto  75.7 #4026 11:13PM
OH I forgot to mention we live in California and Expo was in Canada. - littlpluto  75.7 #4026 11:14PM
It's a small world after all - sickgirl  273.4 #1134 11:21PM
I once saw someone I knew at WDW, which was so weird considering that there are so many parks to visit and it's 6,000 miles away! - msdizmaui  716.8 #270 11:32PM
Small world for sure; saw several co workers and their families at DL while we were there couple weeks ago - and we all came all the way from Hawaii. - azzyjay  22.3 #6944 12:01AM
I used to work a restaurant 300 miles away and would always run into regular customers at DL... - kilteddispatcher  338.0 #712 12:05AM
I live six hours away and I always seem to see one person who shops at my work or I go to school with it never fails - spaceranger916  376.5 #601 9:47AM
@colesmommy, where are u from? - BusterBunny  266.3 #1198 10:13AM

I'm a high school teacher and it's suprisingly common. I've bumped into students while on vacation in other states. They are always a little freaked out. - OffwhiteKnight  31.0 #5881 1:12PM
