All the time! I have officially been banned from talking about Disney by my family and keep it to a minimum with the DF, I can't help bringing up Disney everyday and in so many situations! Music, smells, certain foods, all of it reminds me of something from Disney World. My non-Disney obsessed family members have had enough of me!

in summer when I sit in my yard and look out over the fence, there are tons of trees. when lightening bugs are in season, they twinkle in the trees at night, it just looks so Disney! non-Disney people just don't understand it.

and forget it if someone, whether I know them or not, says they are either going down or just got back. I just cant help myself, have to ask where did you stay, what did you do, etc...gets me all excited.

This is so me. It is a rare day that I don't find some way to bring up WDW. The other night was one of the worst. DH and I were commuting home and the Metro, as is often the case, was having issues. The Metro is often my practice ground for dealing with overcrowding and odd tourist behavior so I often think Disney thoughts while commuting.

So anyway, our train got offloaded and they started single tracking. I said to my husband something like "I hear the monorail has been having lots of problems lately and they keep having to resort to single tracking." He just stares at me with that overwhelmed look of my-wife-is-obsessed and keeps making bad Disney jokes despair.

Yup. I was in the hospital for 19 days and by like day 5 we were planning a summer trip to disneyworld and I think at least once a day I would talk Disney with my nurses. I was on the disboards, disneyworld.com and allearsnet at least two or three times a day so they were always asking me what I was doing so we would talk Disney.

It really helped keep me sane during my stay!

We do it quite a bit. In fact, we were at our local shopping outlets just a couple of weeks ago a message came over the loud speaker, first in English, then in Spanish and both me & my oldest DD looked at each other & laughed as the voice sounded just like the one you hear on the monorail as you are boarding and exiting.

I never thought i would have the response I have!! So I have come to the conclusion that we need help...everybody get your favorite treat and let's start a support group. Meet tonight at MK, okay?? :-D

I am just terrible happy to find I am not the only one!! I also ride a bus to work and I find I am much more likely to get up early at Disney then I am to get up to go to work!! Come to think of it I always think the design on the seats reminds me of ME, just a different color!!! If only they dropped me off at Magic Kingdom instead of the office!

I am always finding hidden Mickeys and pointing them out to folks. My friends just laugh but have to agree the 3 circles do look like a Mickey. Hotel bedspreads, pictures in restaurants, pattern in the material of someone's shirt. Our local McAlisters Restaurant has 3 plates on the wall - 1 big & 2 small - just like on the Haunted Mansion ballroom scene. I am obsessed.

Oh yea, here too!!! I actually really LOVE that having the "Disney Mentality" throws a little extra magic on normal kind of days and reminds us of "home!"

My 19 y/o dd texted me from college last week. She said that she was in her boyfriends dorm bldg stairwell and it smelled like something at Disney. I told her to close her eyes, stand still and just smell the smell and let her mind take her wherever. Well, she said it smelled like the bottom level of BWV, where you go by the workout area, before you go outside...just as you are getting off the elevator to go to the pool level. Told her it must be a musty/sweaty smell!!!
Now, that's probably the oddest smell to remember!

You'd think a sniff in the general vicinity would be sufficient
I mean, how much more can a dead guy do?!?

Dh was at a trivia thing and told me one of the answers to a question was "cosmic rays," and I assumed it was about WDW. It was a science question! Duh!

I was watching tv last night, can't remember what...and the narrator sounded exactly like the narrator on the Disney train! I swear it was identical!

Me too! I can't even begin to think of all the Disney references I come up with in a day. Even my kids laugh at me for it and they supposedly love Disney too. One of mine is any apple pie smell, whether candles or real baking, makes me think of Philharmagic. Excuse me if this is inappropriate but you know how they say men think of sex every half-nanosecond or whatever the statistic is? I've been known to draw a parallel between that and my thoughts of Disney.

My DH who is 48 has only been to Disney 4 times in his life and they were all with me. Until we moved into our home where we currently live he had been 0 times. I had noticed this long before he had, but a few weeks after our first trip he said "look we have a hidden Mickey." We had been living here for a year or so and he just saw it after his first trip. For some reason there are hidden Mickeys in the supports for our garage door, and not just on 1 support but all of them. I thought "yeah he has tasted the Kool-ade, keep drinking."

It really is a "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow".
