I went to training camp one time and will never go back. It was packed, we couldn't move, we couldn't see anything and it was way to hot.

I drove through your area on Monday. My wife and I went with friends to New York City for the day.

Well, most Yankees fans don't dislike the Phillies. We HATE the Red Sox and like making fun of the Mets. Although the Phillies took a page out of the Yankees book of making some MAJOR moves last week.

So, I have a question for you guys. As I mentioned, I have a DW, DS (10), and a DD (8). And, I seem to be the one in the family who is by far the most interested in going to Disney on a regular basis. We went for our first time in 2009 for Spring Break and had a terrific time. Actually, to be honest I was a little reluctant to go that first time - I mean, what's to do at Disney for a 39 year old man, right? Spent 7 days at WL, did all the parks twice, had lunch at the Castle, everything. Like many of you I'm sure, I'll never forget watching Wishes for the first time with my daughter sitting on my shoulders on Main Street and my son holding my hand. On the way home - we drove - I couldn't stop thinking about planning to go back. DW was lukeworm to the idea, at best. Waited until last fall (very difficult) until I brought it up again. Basically had to convince her to do it again, but finally got her to agree to go Spring Break again this year. We planned a trip with my sister (which turned in a cluster) and had a great time again. Added in a day at Universal and still did 6 days at Disney. Crowds seemed much larger this year, though. Anyway, on the ride home this year I convinced myself wanting to go back again was just not how a grown man thinks and to just forget about it. That got me to, oh, around July or so, and I can't stop thinking and planning to go back. Right now I've got it in my head to take the kids out of school and go the week after Thanksgiving. Weather will be great, no lines (right?), and shoot - kids don't learn anything in school in December anyway. If I get a season pass, then we could SAVE money and go again sometime next year. It seems all this is a sickness somehow........

So, my question - am I doomed? Is there any way to convert the rest of my family into wanting to go to Disney at least once a year? Do any of you guys have any suggestions on how to at least convince the wife? Any help would be most appreciated.
I'm with Stopher on this. That how grown men are supposed to think. I remember the first time my DW dragged me to Disney World. I kept an open mind, thinking "It can't be that bad" Within 20 minutes of walking down Main Street, i was was planning return trips!
There are actually a bunch of us that happen to be going down there around the first week of December. It's a good time to go, but it is getting more and more popular.
And yeah, get the kids on your side. All's fair in Love and Disney Vacations.

I was thinking about joining you over there. Except, of course, Tim is my nemesis, so guess I really can't.

As long as I can continue being a fan of the Phillies, I am your minion. As far as the mets are concerned, I think everyone enjoys making fun of them.


hey Barry, i can be a double agent. It will only cost you extra cheeseballs.

If you're going to play that way - then it's Yankees all the way, and you must renounce the Phillies!

Mmmmmmm… Cheeeese… Staaaake…
We may be southern, but we ain’t fools. We appreciate your fine choice to export that particular delicacy, but fair’s fair, so we decided to send grits up that way. If you’ve tried ‘em and don’t like ‘em, they weren’t made right. Once you’ve experienced a proper bowl of Shrimp-n-Grits, you’ll never relegate this fine delicacy to the breakfast table again.
