You're walking in the cool stairwell at work on a humid day when suddenly the musty smell hits you and you think.. Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me

You dream you're at Disney, but for some reason your tickets are at home!

I try but anything and EVERYTHING reminds me of Disney now.

How about????

1. When you keep singing It's A Small World to yourself or find yourself humming it!

2. When you make sure you have your disney luggage tags on your baggage.

3. When you have watched the planning DVD more than once per day.

4. When you get the maps out and really start planning your every move.

5. When the hours get posted for the week you are going.

6. And for me, since I go the Saturday after thanksgiving, before we sit down to eat and we go around the table and say what we are thankful for.... and it gets around to me, and my dad grimaces, oh lord, here it comes....and I jump up and saying, "I am going to Disney World."

When you start to think of what to do first once you enter each park, and you lose sleep over it.

When you can almost taste the food that you are looking at on the food board.

When you check the mail box everyday expecting something from Disney.

When you think about Disney 24/7, and you want to be here reading about it instead of doing anything else.

When you start to get that funny feeling in the pit of your stomach and you anticipate all of the fun you are about to have.

3. You get excited when you visit the isle at Target that has all the travel

4. Your countdown timer and homemade calender are almost at "0"!!!

You're getting close when...

In order:
1. Park hours are posted for your trip
2. You get to make your ADRs
3. You make a to-do, a to-pack and a to-buy list
3. You pull out last year's stuff to make sure you don't forget stuff this year
4. You plan out the week before (laundry, pet sitting, groceries)
Then you realize it's still 90 days away!
5. Co-workers start asking how close it is because you keep humming Disney tunes

Packing gets its own "close" list a week out
1. You pull out the suitcases and pack (7 days)
2. You open the suitecases after laundry is done and switch out your clothes, this is the the "do I need this?" point (6 days)
3. Then you assess how much room it leaves for a new friend (of the sutff variety) (5 days)
4. Repack again, for the friend you forgot to pack and add back in half the stuff you took out, "just in case" (2 days)
5. Beg DH to put some stuff in his bag (2 days)
6. Realize he hasn't started yet (2 days)
7. Pour a glass of wine while he runs around, yelling out items he needs (T minus 8 hours till bed the day before)
8. Then as he gets to his assessment of "does he have room for a new friend", begin begging for space.
9. Still begging
10. Space is granted! And it is T minus 2 hours before bedtime the night before :-)
11. Close suitcases and flop into bed!
