Hey Marylander, I right there with ya! We live in Northern Virginia, and we made it 3 times in 2010... this was a record for us in a single calendar year, although from Nov 2007 to Oct 2008 (which is 12 months) we did also go 3 times, but then it was actually 2 calendar years. People can think I'm nuts if they want... but I'll be laughing at them when we retire and buy a winter home at The Villages and golf free for life!! How handy that its 45 miles from WDW, and how HANDY that my DS18's college is 1 hour east of WDW!

Thanks for the support! We live in CA, so it's a bit crazier, but we didn't pay for airfare the first time, and we got an incredible deal for the second time. That was really the only thing holding us back. Honestly, going to WDW was the best trip we've taken in a long time...I have no regrets.

Hello fellow Mid-Atlantic-er! Maybe we should start a support group for WDW Addicts in our area! LOL

Yes, my trips in '09-'10 were a bit crazy but, you know, the flights are short and I was getting amazing airfare through AirTran too. $58 one way! Come on! I spend more at the grocery store once a week than that airfare cost me.

The people who think we are nuts are the people who are jealous or haven't been touched by the magic yet.

That's OK!!! If you can manage to make the trip, then do it! One should never regret a trip to WDW!

Whispering Canyon is alot of fun, but you have to be in the mood for loud craziness. I enjoy it!

I am jealous of Belle because I think my husband would pick her over me when she is wearing that dang blue peasant dress.
(I'm pretty sure I could thump her though)

My latest shameful secret comes from my trip earlier this month. When I was getting my picture taken with Big Al outside of Hoop Dee Doo Revue, I referred to him as Brer Bear.

OHHHH THE SHAME!!!!!!!

Absolutely!!! I've been there a couple times and had a blast. Although, I went with a group of friends of mine and maybe since it was our last night in WDW, everyone was tired and cranky and they all complained that it was too loud and the kids were driving them crazy. (We were a childless group, so they were commenting on the other children.) HELLO...we are in DISNEY WORLD!!! They have kids there.

I knew my ex wasn't "the one" when he told me he never wanted to go to WDW and could care less about anything Disney. (I went twice that year without him)

However I knew DH was"the one" when I got him to watch Mulan with me and was very upset when I went to WDW without him.

My cats name is Faye, because I wanted to name her Tink but didn't want to have to defend myself all the time

I've never seen Fantasmic. Or spent more then half a day at AK or HS.

My next tattoo is going to either be all disney or at the very least a hidden mickey in it.

Oh and the last trip DH and I brought homemade strawberry vodka and mixed it with lemonade and walked around WDW all day sipping our "Strawberry Lemonade"

I've only seen IllumiNations once, in 2008. The only part I liked was the big fireballs.

I was completely underwhelmed by Fantasmic.

I've never been to a rope drop.

I think the 'roller coasters' at WDW (and Orlando in general) are small, tame, 'wussy' versions of the real things.

I had an "un-natural" reaction to Pinnochio when I was 12.. Umm.. let's just say he followed me through the parade..and for a while.. i would dream about him..

I have gone to WDW with 3 major boyfriends in my life.. the last I married..

The longest I ever spent was 10 days with the second of the 3.. and 6 days into it I called my friend crying and wanting to come home.. boyfriend number 2 complained that he couldnt do the parks anymore because of his bunyons..lol
