Mine was at MCO. We went in to the Delta lounge at the end of our Easter trip and sat in the same chairs we had the trip before in October. When I looked at the next table, it was the same family that were sat there 6 months earlier too. It was sooooo weird! What are the chances of that??! We were on completely different flights to different destinations too.

I think that my surreal moment was on our last trip at Pop Century. Every morning we would get up and head down to the bus stop to get to the park we needed that AM (or needed to get to to transfer to another resort for breakfast). The first morning a cast member said goodmorning and we replied and we continued down the concourse to the last doors (closest to the bus stop) and each morning as we walked that way one of the cast members who worked at Everything Pop would be opening the gates to start the day and they would also say good morning and we would agian reply. All seems normal enough, but as we came back to the resort (at varied times depending on where we had been) we would also enter different doorways into the main building to get to the back area so we could get to our room we would see the same castmember. He would smile and ask us if we had a good time in the park that day. By the third or so day I was begining to hear the Twilight Zone music as I headed into Classics Hall It got to be such a running joke that we would bet he wouldn't be there or would be there. I even specifically took the long way around the building to avoid going through one day just to break the whole effect ( I was feeling like I was in a time loop) and there he was at the luggage check-in smiling and asking if we had a good time. After 8 days of seeing this castmember morning and evening I finally had to ask him if he worked non-stop...that I always see him.
Then I felt like an idiot...as he smiled and told me that he only works a regular shift...times vary and where he works may vary as well...but he understood my confusion...he yelled over to someone else and then it all made sense...his twin brother also worked there and I had been passing by one or the other but never both. Having a set of twins myself (all be-it boy and girl) it never even ocurred to me that the answer was that simple.Disney Dad

Strange coincidence, on the 2009 February trip I wandered over to Aligator Bayou and took a photo of one of the buildings, when I went back in the November the photo I took in February included my room for November. In 2006 DD and I got off the Winnie the Pooh ride to have John Travolta and family get on our car, I was literally a couple of feet from them(yes, they didn't queue.)

Mine is cheating as it didn't happen in Disney but was spooky enough I thought I would share :)
We usually go on large group golfing holidays where you don't have to play with people you don't know.
However, twice just two of us have been away. On these occasions some courses make you play with people you don't know.
On the first trip we were paired up with different people each day, and of the three days we only actually enjoyed the company of one couple. A lovely couple from Switzerland who were perfect playing partners.
The following year we went to a different resort at a totally different time of year, over breakfast I said "wouldn't it be great to play with someone like Anders again" ... then as we walked to the first tee we saw them waiting for us.
The odds of being paired up with the same people must be higher than the odds of winning the lottery!!!1 - Howard Johnson Maingate East - Kissimmee - Oct 93
