This is totally at Epcot…
sadly this is my mom, my uncle, my mimi, and my papa there are many more of these photos all of which are just as disturbing.
Moracco, where there free compound bows for every tourist!!
Yes, this is Disney World in Orlando. Yeah, Epcot, Moroccan-themed place. I have a picture of my family there when I was a kid in ’88. I believe in front of the same fountain.
This was taken in epcot of disney. Arabia i think…
was there a few weeks ago ^u^
Lol @ the tiny shorts.
From the makers of Mom Jeans®, comes the ALL-NEW Mom Shorts®! Great for the whole family!
I wonder if the Epcot firing squad was on the other side of the camera? “Line ‘em up, shoot ‘em down…”
I do believe I have some honeymoon pics in this exact spot!
I am going CRAZY reading the comments on this site about “Why is this so awkward? This is just a nice family on vacation…I think they are having a great time together. We shouldn’t make fun of their clothes/hair/glasses/teeth.” Really? You don’t understand why this stuff is awkward? Why are you even coming to this site then? I swear, I’d rather read a dozen freakin’ compound bow references than one more “why is this awkward” question. Can I get a second??
Thanks, feeling better now.
I agree. It is not extravagant awkwardness. But sometimes we have to honor the common vacation awkwardness that we all share. Perhaps too subtle for some?
What is life but subtle awkwardness?
I think most people just didn’t understand the caption, especially since they’re at Disney World. I think it’s a totally awkward picture, but I must have stared at it for 5 minutes straight wondering what specifically made it a dream for a pickpocket. Particularly since their shorts are so tight.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
(This is true for ALL THREADS.)
If anyone is doubting this is Epcot, have you ever been? It’s extremely obvious that this is it. I have about ten thousand pictures to prove the location XD
Never mind; I figured out that the Griswolds are from the National Lampoon Vacation series.
I can see the awkwardness, but who’s this Griwold that people refer to?
I disagree about the Epcot theories. The walls look too dirty to be Disney. No way the powers-that-be would allow that much dirt to show.
It’s not REAL dirt (is anything at Disney real?). It’s faux dirt to give it an “antique” look. Check Google images for “epcot morocco” and you’ll find a hundred copies of the same scene.
Freaky thing is I was to Epcot only once in my life, more than twenty years ago, and I did recognize it. I think it was the tourist family that triggered the memory–there’s no way it made sense that they were actually in Morocco and I’m afraid any pics of me and my family would have been quite similar.
If they were really in Morocco, ALL of them would have clothes on that covered their legs and arms, especially the woman and girl, due to cultural dictates…just think about it for a minute.
Good points. Thanks guys.
For those who can’t see the Awkward, immortality awaits you in the form of this website. Send those family vacation pics in quick.
Okay. I am the original poster. I was in Morocco when this family of tourists asked me to use their camera to take their picture. I wanted to get their wallets, but the pants were too tight and I could not get to the wallets. So instead I snapped the photo and ran off with the camera. The photo was so AWKWARD I thought it fit this site.
Except this isn’t Morocco. It’s Disney World.
WELL, aren’t you someone I’d love to get to know better! I really hope you’re joking.
really? You stole their camera then posted their dorky picture on the web? That’s really mean!
Oh really, Nicole? Your initials are SG?
actually the name is Nickole
This looks like an illustration to ‘The Field Guide to American Tourists,’ the classic reference for pickpockets everywhere.
I think that there is one of my family just like this only add 99% humidity.
Someone please explain the captions to this picture… I don’t know what they’re talking about. Thanks!
I think the caption is just pointing out how obvious it is that these people are tourists…therefore will be targeted by criminals who will try to steal their wallets/purses.
Um, who ISN’T a tourist at Disney World?
Um, locals who have annual passes and go all the time? i live 10 minutes from CA Disneyland and not only our family has them but half the people i know. it’s no more “tourist-y” than going to a movie or the mall.
(cat fightin noises)
found out long ago
It’s a long way down the holiday road
great I will sing this song for the next few days!
Thanks Lindsey Buckingham, you’re a life saver.
Yeah, this is at Epcot. Mystery solved.
Badly captioned. I doubt any of them have any pockets in those tiny shorts.
Nor could anyone slip a hand in any of them without being immediately detected.
I think it’s more to the reference that her purse is just dangling and nobody’s paying attention to it. Not exactly pickpocketing but someone could have easily gotten away with something.
EPCOT, Disney definitely
Hey, family, I CAN’T see the fountain!
This is the way shorts SHOULD be. I vote we bring back short shorts. I mean what’s the point of shorts if they come down to your ankles? I’m talkin’ to you Anfernee Hardaway.
i totally agree with you….they are not “shorts” if they end well past your knees and are so baggy that you can fit a whole person into each leg.
classic american tourist. Love it!
Who wears short shorts? The FAMILY wears short shorts!!
This is the greatest site in the whole wide world wide web.
I don’t get it.
Me either :/
Looks like a perfectly normal (albeit dorky) family vacation.
Not complaining, tho. Can someone please point out the awkwardness I’m missing
shorts length I suppose…
Who wears short shorts? These superstars do!
Who wears short shorts? They wear short shorts!
HAA! Great comment!
This is exactly the song that was playing in my head. They ALL wear short shorts… of slightly varied lengths.
I think that’s at Walt Disney Worlds Epcot. The Moroccan Pavilion.
It most definitely is. I was on vaca in Disney two weeks ago.
Stunt doubles for National Lampoons European Vacation
National Lampoon’s Turkish Vacation.
wahahhahha! Adam thanks, you get my first real laugh of the day!
I haven’t seen that much thigh meat since LAST Thanksgiving.
LOL! Good one!
“thigh meat”… excellent!
It is so Griswold!
My thoughts EXACTLY!!
My first thought too!!!! Holiday road!!!
Thanks for putting THAT song in my head
First thought here too.
You guys didn’t know all those lampoon vacations were based on a true story, now, did ya?
I wonder if they’ll be pick-pocketed by Jasmine and Aladdin. This is the Moroccan pavilion in Epcot in Walt Disney World.
yep…i recognized it too, the moroccan pavillion in epcot!
i recognized it too! ah love that place
Good – It wasn’t just me.
Yes!! Our family has a picture very similar to this one, taken at Epcot as well.
Good times, good times.
Yup, This is SO Epcot. Back in the day…
Dad: If we don’t move suddenly, no one will even notice the problem.
Mom: I told you to leave the super strong glue at home.
I think the fellow in the background with the hunched shoulders and blue pants makes this picture. I think little Kevin with the sunglasses is going ingognito and I can’t say I blame him.
