What do you call a Disney Fan?

So I was lying in bed last night trying to fall asleep and a thought came to me...Disney Fans don't have a name to distinguish that you are in deed a Disney Nut! (at least I don't of one if there is one)

So Jimmy Buffet has "Parrot Heads", the Grateful Dead has "Dead Heads", even the Imagination Movers has "Gear Heads"! I am definately not saying we need to be Disney Heads. Dis-ers is great and I know that Mouseketeer is definately a great classification - but so not original!

I think we need a title to be used to describe all of the loyal Disney fans, freaks and nuts out there!

So I think we should band together and create a really great name for us.
I would love to hear what everyone can come up with.

A Disney Fan? Don't know. Cant remember. The only label I'm intimately aquainted with anyone is Disney Maniac.

I refer to myself as a Disney freek or Disney geek.

My family (aunts, uncles, cousins) always ask me "don't you ever stop talking about disney?" -- the answer is NO!!!! I can relate disney to anything and everything!

Sorry - I feel pity on those who do not understand the power of Disney!!!

My students call me a DIsney Freak as well. Since I teach Free Enterprise (Economics) the topic comes up rather easily quite often. I do warn them however on the first day of class.
