Do any of you do this?

It is so hard to wait for a Disney trip when you have it planned so far in advance. I'm sure all of you will agree. So what I do to help with the waiting is I watch You Tube videos of the resort we are staying in and videos of the parks. There are a lot of good videos that people take. My husband even watches sometimes, Lol! Of course, I am on this site a lot too! Do any of you do the same thing?

Umm, yeah. Doesn't everyone?? Cruzin Disney's Boardwalk and Shopping Disney's Boardwalk are two of my favorites. Have to watch Spaceship Earth in the mornings on my phone while doing morning reports at work. By the way, you scared my DH--I happen to love palm trees-he thinks I started another identity lol

I do the same thing I watch you-tube videos all the time. I also watch ones that are going in the stores. I'll watch my fave attractions too. It does help that I work for the mouse at our Disney outlet. My next WDW vacation is next may or June we haven't decided yet. I want May but DH doesn't want to take our DS out of school early.

We watch You Tube videos, we watch the 5-minute park bench videos on this site, we watch the DIS unplugged to keep up on the latest Disney news, I have an Instagram and Twitter account and only follow Disney related sites so I get pictures and info all day, and on my phone I have Live 365 and Pandora full of Disney music that I listen to each morning and weekends. On the Live 365 station I search 'wdwtouring' then select wdw touring and listen to all the different rides! Like literally they play the whole ride to Splash Mtn., entrance to MK, Tower of Terror, Mission to Space, etc. It is wonderful! Also I follow Allersnet on twitter and they tweet out a game each week, it's a 'where is this picture at' game. Yes it can also be found on the web page but the tweets just remind me to play. In fact I send it to DH, DD, and her BF and we all play with in our group. I also have a countdown app on my phone, it goes off each morning at 8:00 and shows how many days and a random pic. Hope this gives you a few new ideas to help make time go by faster.

pretty funny.....i have a pic of our BW view (SSE over crescent lake) on my phone. sometimes i change it to a pic of the outside of the BWV (focal point being the room(s) we usually get at the BWVs).

and palm trees, lots of palm trees (DD bought me a pandora bracelet with palm trees charm for Christmas).

the BWVs and palm trees just make me happy

Awesome! Thanks for all the responses.

So, yesterday I watched Wishes and toured CBR on You Tube, and so far this morning I was on Mousesavers. I think later I will "go" to Magic Kingdom and walk down Main Street and then go on a ride! LOL

Also I highly recommend PINTEREST I collect all kinds of Disney pics and I love to see how amazing photographers can be at capturing the magic! I also stalk twitter daily for photos and updates. It helps the time go faster.
