We visit Disney twice and sometimes ( heaven forbid) three times a year and we're from Massachusetts. When our friends say Again???? with disgust--we just smile and say 'YES'!!!
I love being a 'FAIRY GRANDMOTHER'

When I applied for a job at the Disney Store back in 2004, during my interview the manager asked me what I liked best about trips to WDW to get a feel for my thoughts about Disney in general. Keep in mind she was also someone who liked to go to WDW. My reply was off the cuff since I had no idea I'd be asked such a question. My answer- The way I feel like a kid again and the weight of the world seems to fall off my shoulders when I am there.
I guess she liked the answer, I got the job on the spot.

Its about having fun..

I've been to Disney many times and just got back last week from this years trip and have already booked my trip for next year.

People at work think I am crazy...But I just tell them what with work and having to be sensible and mature for most of the year, For my Holiday's I like nothing better than going to Disney and being a kid again... oh and getting a hug from Mickey

ha! I can't believe I found this thread! I just booked a Disney Trip for August. DH gave me the OK )! We were just there in Nov '09 and I went with my sister in May '09 after having not been since '90. She has gone 5 times in the past 3yrs and is hooked and now I am too. I haven't told anyone about our Aug trip for this exact reason! I dont want to hear the "you're going again" that I got that when we went in Nov. It is MY happy spot. It's the place my mind goes to when I'm stuck home worrying about life. So it's just logical for me to go there when we can get away on vacation. Plus now my sons are addicted too LOL. Beats me why some people don't understand it when they too have their own happy places!

I have gone 9 times, our 10th will be march 2011. When people have comments about it i just say "yeah we're going again", then I throw in the best back question ever "you jealous". It throws the issue at them, they are jealous thats why they are making comments, just be blunt about it
works everytime they say yes i am, then they are the ones changing the subject

We love Disney and Vegas... Our Disney trip starts with an overnight "airport trip" to Vegas and the kids love staying at the different themed hotels there, my DD14 especially enjoys the roller coaster at the NYNY hotel.

Back to the original topic... I think the thing that boggle "non-DIS" people when we talk about our upcoming trips is the length of time we spend there (usually 8 days or so). I try and try to explain that 8 days is what we can manage with work and money but we really NEED to stay LONGER (then I realize I've missed their point and they really wanted to know why we were staying "so long" in Disneyworld!) They will never understand....

Dh and mine's best friend is staying with us this weekend. Bff, me & dd just all went to lunch together- the whole meal he was asking when we are going to take a real vacation. WDW is not a real vacation in his eyes. I asked him if he had ever been- 1 week in 1985 - he was 14!! DD was getting realy upset and I had to firmly shut him up. We love Disney and it is a very real vacation for us. As long as financially we can afford it we plan on going every year. I am even secretly dreaming DD one day YEARS from now will want to get married there!

What really sucks is tonight we are going to a baseball game with my inlaws who will also jump on the "why are you going to Disney again" bandwagon.

I don't deal with them!

My friends hear we are going on vacation now and just assume it is Disney. They were actually SHOCKED when we went to Williamsburg and DC this month!

I would like to pipe in on this topic. As you can see from my signature, we have been to Disney many times. I have had many people over the years say "why, again?" I discovered once I started explaining to them some of the wonderful things that make us want to go back time and time again, I then became known as a Disney expert with my peer group. Then they were asking ME what to do and where to go when they went to Disney. I actually consider myself responsible for converting at least two families who are trying to catch up with me on the number of visits to WDW!

Before I "got the Disney bug" I wouldn't have understood it either if someone had looked like a "Disney fanatic." We are on the DIS boards because we have all been bitten by the bug.... maybe it's up to us to educate the "... poor, unfortunate souls...."
