DW and I decide where we want to eat and just go there. Always get in. Maybe we have to wait in the bar for an hour or so and have a cocktail. I know, it stinks to have to order a drink on vacation. We are DINKs though, so no kids getting cranky. We can eat later at night. We mostly go to Signature restaurants, which I think are easier to get in at.

Talking

Every time I go on IASW I ask myself WHY!

Never had a dole Whip, but it's on my list for December

Miss the Sunshine Tree Terrace real frozen orange juice and vanilla Ice cream swirl

I think about going to Disney to fall asleep

I leave my husband at home because he can't keep up and thinks you have to REST! No resting when fun awaits!

So old I remember E-tickets

I miss Mr Toads Wild Ride..loved the pitch forks!

Never seen wishes or Illuminations (but plan to in DEC)

Secretly wish I could fly so I could go to Disney anytime I wanted!

Addicted to food porn

I do not like Dole Whips.
My neck hurts after riding BTMR and Space Mt
I think MGM is a waste of time after you do Toy Story Mania, Fantasmic and eatting.

I love the song " when somebody loved me" from Toy Story 2 and " I Try" from peter pan 2 also " What's This / Christmas Town" ( not sure the title) from Nightmare before Christmas although I haven't seen the movie.

I too have Disney music on my IPOD and in my car. I also have more than a few WDW and DCL videos downloaded on my IPOD from podcasts and youtube. I ride the bus to work every day and watch videos to pass the time. I make sure no one else can see what I'm watching because I don't want them to think I'm crazy watching fireworks over the castle, Mickey and his friends dancing down Mainstreet or videos of parades!

I haven't been to WDW since 2005 and I really don't miss it too much.

A short story --

In 2001, I turned 40 and my father was diagnosed with cancer. I was supposed to go to Italy, but my mother didn't want me to leave the country. So, I went to WDW by myself, and made it a point to go to Epcot Italy on the big 4-0.

So, there I am, sitting on a bench in Italy, sobbing because it didn't feel like Italy, it was NOTHING like Italy. It was like sitting on a bench in a theme park in Florida (ya think? ) A CM walked over to me and asked me if I was OK. Still sobbing, I told her the story and ended with "No offense, but this really SUCKS!" (said sobbing and hiccuping with every word.) And she agreed with me!

I have been back to WDW since then, and I did go on a cruise to Italy and Greece (magnificent!) for my 45th birthday, so there are no hard feelings against Epcot. But I might be the only person who has announced "This really SUCKS!" in the actual park.

I wear my Mickey crocks anywhere

I like Dole Whip (donít LOVE it, but like it)

I think that there is something creepy about ISW. DH and I have a theory the Spectro men live there.

For the past five years lexandme and I have had a standing appointment every Saturday at 8am to talk Disney.

And sometimes we can't get enough "Disney Talk" on Saturdays so we talk again on Sundays at 8!
I also wear my Mickey Crocs in public (and they're red!)
I really, really, really need to try a Dole Whip.

I keep a WDW/DCL diary. I journal all of my pre planning info, costs,activities, weather and personal thoughts of each day during each trip (and any other Disney info). I also keep park schedules, maps, etc. in there. I'm almost to the end of my third journal book. I have been doing this every year since 2005. My plan is to pass it down to our son so he has written memories of all of our trips.

I'm too scared to ride BTMR!

I keep a stuffed Baloo on my nightstand. I secretly say good night to him every night!

Shameful secret

The "I believe in dreams" extravaganza at Magic Kingdom gives me the creeps. Plays out like a fundamentalist religious cult indoctrination routine.

I have a secret plot to combine Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin and IASW. You score points for every international doll that you blast.

Most embarassing:

In 2006, I was on the monorail on my way to EPCOT on the first day of our trip. I was so excited! In fact, I was so excited that we had to go back to the resort to have a swim and dinner to calm me down enough that we could finally head to the parks. I felt like a three year old (I was 28).

Other shameful secrets:

I was nervous to get married to my husband because he had never been to Disney World and I didn't know what I was going to do if he didn't 'get it.' (Thankfully, he does and is almost as into it as I am...almost).

My most magical memories at Disney World are not with my husband but with my best friend. (He doesn't know that and would be more than a little upset to know.)

I convinced my husband to buy into the DVC on the premise that we would save money...really it was so I could guarantee to go every 1-2 years for the rest of my life.

I have only ever been to WDW as an adult and I am scared of going with my children (who should be showing up pretty soon).
