i love disney but admit i do think how boring it must be for people who go to the same destination year after year? ( florida or anywhere else)

dont understand how they can not want to see and enjoy other places aswell

i can not wait for our florida trip but it is soo expensive our india trip will be twice as long for less than half the money

however if money was no object and i could afford to do disney plus elsewhere then i would do disney everyear

Oh I totally agree with you OP! It really annoys me - I mean I'm not harming anyone and spending my own money so why do people feel the need to be negative when I say we're going back! We love it, its as simple as that!! When we told several friends that we had booked our honeymoon they laughingly said 'well you can't go to Florida for that...can you?!?' and looked horrified when we said that YES our honeymoon did included a Disney portion! It wouldnt have been the same if we hadnt done Disney!! My brother in law told everyone that would listen that we just dont have the imagination to book a better honeymoon!! Made me SO mad! Well the last laugh was ours as we brought home our son! Our Disneymoon baby! Cant wait to bring him 'home' next year! And unlike some people who think that I'm only after booking our trip for our son and think its silly cause he wont even remember it I KNOW I booked it for myself! I want to see his face light up and experience it through his eyes but I also want to get my WDW fix as we didnt get to go this year lol!

As we go to Orlando multiple times a year we do get the comments however my work colleagues now all understand and are great. It's the people that don't know us as well that get me

When DH & I (well was DBf then) went to book our first holiday it was the only place suggested

Since then we have been many times (didn't honeymoon there as at that time we couldn't afford it) and DD was conceived there too.

We love it, DD loves it so what anyone else thinks doesn't matter

thankfully I now work in a job where all the girls I work with are either WDW addicts themselves or want to go! In my last job I got the 'why are you going there AGAIN?' rubbish. My SIL is a prime example of one that says this as well. She going to a different country each year and sits by the hotel pool for the whole time, which in my mind is the same as going to the same place each year!! Unless people have been to WDW they have no idea what its like and therefore are in no position to judge..I give as good as I get nowadays if somebody questions me in a judgemental way. When I hit 40 I decided not to take any c**p from now on! If I wanted to spend a load of money to go to a different carribean island to an all inclusive resort each year I would. Its personal choice and I would never do that, one sandy beach and palm tree is the same as another unless its at the Grand Floridian Hotel

We have had loads of comments over the years also and even when we went to California one year that was us still going back to the same place as it included Disney.

The one that really surprised me though was one of DD10s friends asked her last summer if she wasnt bored going to Disney all the time. I just didnt imagine this thought would even occur to a child especially as they go to the same country every year also.

Have to say all the kids were actually horrified when we suggested maybe visiting other US cities as well as Orlando next year, so all going well we will be in Orlando again next August and certainly not bored!

Lol, it does sound like most of the people who are so negative haven't actually been, I kno it can be expensive but like others have said, when you weigh up what you can pay for a beach hol it just doesn't compare, we used to go to dlp quite a lot but it has gone so expensive there we would rather pay a bit more and go for 7 nights in Florida! Fingers crossed and hope you can make it for next August!

Both myself and DBF have friends who say 'AGAIN?!' with a horrified look on their faces when we say we're going back to Florida. I don't see what difference it makes to their lives where we choose to go on holiday. We work hard and save our money so we can go back.

We've both already decided our honeymoon will be at WDW, we just need to pick which hotel!!!

That's brill, you're spoilt for choice with the hotels! Some seem to make you feel like your just big kids for going to disney but for one, its not all about mickey, there is so much to see and do, and second, it's nice to be able to escape from the real world when we can!
