You know you are getting close to a Disney trip when.....

1. You actually go to bed before dark, because the next day will come sooner!

2. You stop at every Dollar Tree or Dollar Store to look for Disney window decorations.

3. When the famous Mickey head and ears shape seems to appear in more and more places.

4. People at work come to you as the "Disney vacation expert" for trip tips and information.

Anyone have any to add????

You paint Mickey ears on your daughter's bedroom wall while repainting her room.

LOL, I had my MIL paint Sleeping Beauty's castle complete with a flame throwing Maleficent Dragon, on my daughter's wall.

Everyone at work thinks I am a weird Disney nut, but that's ok with me!

I've had the hidden mickey thing -- I start seeing them everywhere about 3 weeks before our trip.

The Disney-expert thing always happens after our trip -- we basically plan next year's trip as soon as we get home (so much easier that way)

When planning meals at home, you find yourself thinking in terms of '1 Table Service, 1 Counter Service, 1 snack'...

This is like therapy. I am so glad there are so many other people like me. Sometimes my coworkers look at me like I am crazy. I just tell them they have to go and see for themselves.

That is just it. Many of my coworkers will ask "How many more days?" There is only one other person that I work with that has the disney fever.

You wish the clerk at your local store would tell you to HAVE A MAGICAL DAY.

You know you are getting close when...

You are perfectly ok tripping over the suitcases in the middle of the dining room floor because you know they are your constent reminder of your trip

You know your getting close when....

1. You start making mousekeeping envelopes.
2. You make scrapbooking pages to hang in the window or your room or on your door.
3. You start stock piling pennies and quarters for the Pressed Coin Machines.
4. You make your son walk around the house in water shoes so he can break them in before the trip because you know if he don't he'll get blisters while at Blizzard beach or Typhoon Lagoon.

And my all time favorite......

5. You check the mailbox everyday like a 5 year old kid, to see if today will be the day that you get Mickey mail!!!!
