for this Disney obsession? We're not even members yet, though I/we hope to be someday...but I have a feeling that joining DVC will not help and will likely make it worse. What's a person to do?:rolleyes: :confused: :rolleyes:

The only cure is to keep going to Disney!

Sorry, there is no cure... but it is treatable! The best ways to keep it from getting too bad are to: visit this site every day to talk about it with other sufferers and make plans many months in advance to get your next fix.

It is a bad bad thing to be Disney obsessed. But you can come here and be obsessed with lots of others. I know I usually am planning out at least 3-4 trips, and since DVC, I go about 3x a year. Never would have been able to do that without DVC. (and the DIS, where I learned all about DVC)

Trembling before an upcoming trip, constant babbling about what you are going to do each day, planning were to eat 6 months ahead of time, pointing at the tv every time a WDW commercial comes on, these are just a few. This affects everyone differently and there is " NO CURE ", you can only treat the symptoms and occasional keep it in check !!

Disney obsession is not a bad thing to have;) There are much worse obsessions to have like counting carbs, those out there who love attending insurance seminars, and people who can't watch enough Matlock reruns.
I'll take this one! At least my Disney obession puts a little bounce in my step and a smile on my face. :bounce:

Years ago, someone (Pete I think) posted a message about the twelve steps of Disney Anonymous based on the twelve steps of A.A. It was quite clever. I'm not sure how you would find this post again but maybe someone more clever than I am could help. It certainly helps me with my Disney addiction.

I have to admit it gets worse once you join DVC. Before, I used to talk about my upcoming trip and drive everyoen insane. Now, when i talk about it, they are liek and what year is this trip?!?
(You end up having like a million trips all palnned out that are actually already booked or at least in your head.)I actually try to see if I can go without mentioning anything Disney when I'm out. I never succeed.

When I joined Dvc I think it only made me more obsessed. Now I have to go every year to use those points. I run to see the tv if I hear any kind of disney music. I love to talk about disney to anyone that will listen and sometimes not listen. I LOVE these boards and visit every day. There may not be a cure but it is a great and fun obsession. :Pinkbounc :bounce: :wave: ::MickeyMo ::MinnieMo

alcohol, drugs, running around on your spouse, listening to political candidates, cleaning up dirty diapers, scrubbing toilets . . .

you get the idea. Personally, it's kind of fun being known in the entire county as the woman to come to who knows about Disney.

. . .and yeah,it gets worse once you belong. . . .

DVC and planning trips have become my passion...Let's not call it an obsession. It's my joy in life!!!

Mom B,
There is NO cure--I repeat, there is NO cure.
Trust me, I'm a doctor (and like to think I know what I'm talking about)
There is treatment--but it takes many, many, many sessions with one certain Mouse and his friends to impart some level of stability that will allow you to function (just barely, though) in everyday life.
Often times my beeper disrupts my life--but lately it has been worse. Not work related though, it is colleagues and sometimes patients asking me for advice relating to WDW. I would prescribe multiple trips as often as economically feasibe to see this Mouse. He has magical healing powers (and an uncanny ability at removing any form of monetary representation you may have).
Welcome to our world, and warn your family and friends, it is contagious--which again requires treatment from the Mouse.
See you in therapy.:teeth:

I never want a cure from this. This is just too much fun. We constantly have at least too trips booked and one waiting to be booked. So we can conctantly be planning all the time. And inbetween that, we are on the boards getting our fix just about everyday. I know I never want to change that.

I agree with mamarobin24. As I used to tell the high schoolers I taught-it's so much better than being addicted to alcohol, drugs, also gambling, pornography...
I'm proud of my addiction!
