Are we crazy?

We just got back from our first WDW trip at the end of August and we are planning to go again...next August!

Has anyone made a return trip so soon after going for the first time?

It's like they put something in the food there to make you want to come back again...and again...and again

We are not able to go back again next year but we were in the August 2012 thread and know a lot of people that did the bounce back for next summer with the free DDP.

Dont know if you have seen but I believe they started a August 2013 thread! They are awesome peeps on this thread

I wish we could go back tomorrow lol. But may be a little while unfortunately!

Disney is a magical place. You either love it or you hate it. We, too, love it and go at least once a year.
Did you book the bounce back deal?

Not crazy at all!!! While we were there, on our last morning we were discussing making it an annual trip. (It was our first time last year in Sept 2011). Then a couple months later we decided it was a pretty pricey trip and that every other year would be better so we didn't book anything. A month ago we started looking at booking for Sept 2013, then decided that was way too long to wait as I was kicking myself for not having something booked for this year! So we bumped it up to February 2013.......which still wasn't close enough so we decided to just do our Christmas Dream trip instead and are now going Nov.29 this year!!

So no, I definitely don't think a trip every year is too much, if anything I'd say you may end up regretting it if you don't book something.

were from the states but we go every year for two weeks and have done this for 65 trips counting our one coming up this fall. Also for like four days here and there when my sister can get off work four days in a row or have done it with three days off. We really do not count those......were addicted and admit it.

No not at all but most people on here are crazy like that. We had several years when airfare was cheaper and we went 3-4x in one year.

For several years we did yearly trips to WDW. Then we took a break. Now we go every other year, and do a different destination on the in between years.

There was one year when we were living in the States that we went 3 times in one calendar year. We thought that was a bit much, so scaled back.

We did the same thing. This past August was our first trip to WDW, and we booked the bounce back offer for next August already. When we were there, we knew we would want to come back, and were thinking in 2 years, but we couldn't pass up free dining again to return next summer so we booked.

Oh, how I wish we did the bounceback offer. It probably would have saved us a good chunk of $$. At the time, we weren't 100% sure if we wanted to do Disney for vacation next year. It was only when we returned that we made the decision. Hopefully free dining will be offered for the dates that we choose!
