I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

I hoard the cups in the room. Like hide them so they leave me more. Then go to the food court and snag lids. I take them home and use them in the car as a travel cup when I need a little pixie dust.

My secret is that I'm super jealous of the folks who walk around MK with the different Ears hats. Never had the guts to do it even when I was little. Finally bought some sequined Minnie ears at DL for my mom and me to wear during Marathon Weekend in January. Thinking my hobbling around after the race will look much sillier than a 30 something wearing ears.
Also, I've ALWAYS wanted to eat at Cinderella's Table. Can't wait to finally cross that off my list in January too!

Another shameful Disney secret...... I have to drink out of Disney glassware. I have a collection of different glasses/mugs & travel mugs so that I can always have a little Disney with me.

I love the H20 soaps and shampoo that they have at the Beach club Resort. The maid helped with my hoarding by leaving plenty of extras everyday.

We also have a nice tradition of buying a glass Disney mug for every new family member that comes along. They are personalized with their names so that when we have big family dinners, everyone has their own mug.

I think dole whips are gross but my wife loves them

Wishes always makes me tear (even proposed to the mrs during them)

And can't help shameful yes, but come to find I check out the princesses quite a bit more than I should haha but my wife seems to judge their looks all the same (she was a princess and a fairy before haha)

Probably a bigger Disney fan (my wife and i) than all our friends and family. I'm surprised they don't think we are completely nuts

One of those women went on to become one of my closest friends & sharer of another shameful Disney secret that I shall never , ever divulge on these boards

As well as not so awfully shameful Disney secret # 3 - I littered ALL over WDW. I did & I wasn't alone. When that Dear Disney Buddy of mine died suddenly, I made a bunch of "Bev-Fetti" with pictures of her & I together & some of our friends in WDW shrunk down & cut up, mixed with glitter & sequins. A bunch of us DISers met there & used that instead of her ashes to scatter her in all her favorite WDW places.
good idea, i have told my family if they have to cremate me, then sprinkle some of my ashes at disney.

My shame probably tops everyone else because if I have kids one day, I'm not sure if I would be too excited to take them to Disney I know I know soooo selfish. I've just gotten so spoiled to going with just my mom and solo...and Disney is the one place where it's all about me Okay, now I'm feeling really shameful.

Speaking from experience, you'll give up all of those feelings once you have had kids. You'll want to see the excitement in their eyes and share in their joy of Disney. Of course you'll want your own 'private kind of fun' as well, but that's when you go with more than your immediate family and spell each other with kids so you can still enjoy you 'me' time.

I hate the current afternoon parades...I really want Share a Dream Come True and Stars and Motorcars back. I think Spectromagic is much better than the Electric Light Parade. And I have been known to lie about my birthday once or twice in the parks just to get some extra Disney love

I still use my fairly well-sized baby Mickey Mouse plushie as an extra pillow at night, nearly a quarter century after he was gifted to me. He's the blue blanket to my Linus.

Also, I'm afraid of Dumbo and Pinocchio. It's the pink elephants and donkey boys. Terrifying.

1. I read threads on the solo board, even though I take my kids every time.
2. I think I have forced my kids to be more into disney than they are naturally
3. I may be bringing up dvc resale into any conversation with my husband, which could be construed as bullying or brainwashing (i.e. Sh: got a great commission check this month! Me: oh, then we can get our dvc soon!)
4. I am convinced that 1/5th of my need to homeschool is the need to visit wdw when I want, and not be held to a school schedule. (but the other 4/5th are still good reasons!)
5. My dream was to act at Wdw, but I ended up acting at 6 flags, and it tarnished my like for that park. I am not willing to sacrifice my love for disney, so I cannot work there
7. My son wants to design computer animation/video games. I subtly give him the idea that that could be at disney...he is 9, I don't push hard....
8. I want a dvc so we can one day go to wdw as a couple with no kids...
9. I have way Moe nightmare before mas stuff than a 38 year old should wear on a daily basis.
10. I tried to convince Dh to take His sales job on the road, in a trailer, full time, so we could live at fort wilderness for a month or two as snowbirds. I (sort of) came to my senses...but
11. I look at celebration real estate at least weekly
12. I obsessively try to win disney contests. (I did win one..vip, open the park, etc. So my obsession had a good result, which makes it worse!)
I have issues, but I don't care! ;-)
