I was just watching a video on something that was completely irrelevant to Disney holidays but had a quote in it that seemed appropriate to this thread

"Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way"

I proposed to my wife in front of Cinderella castle....we took our honeymoon at WDW and yeah, I guess people do find that funny BUT we LOVE that place and go back there every opportunity we have. 12 years later and now our two boys are also obsessed. Tenerife or Orlando next year boys? I'm sure you can guess the excited answer ;-)

I know a couple who took their early teens to Orlando...for a week....and hated it! they didn't even go to WDW. it's like HOW?!?!?!? WHAT?!?!? HUH?!?!

Oh well....different strokes for different folks I guess...

I get 'disney abuse' all the time. Me and DW go every year we are DVC members, I live for it! I have many health problems, am disabled and its the one thing that gets me through the year. We have never been anywhere else where we get that feeling. People say because we go every year, havent been blessed by children we are 'childish', should go somewhere 'different' and cultured like europe. The thing is I never comment negatively on other peoples holidays just say how lovely for them. So why the comments? Why does it bug people so much that me and my partner are so passionate about our beloved 2 weeks at wdw?

In fact next year we are going twice. I brace myself for the comments lol.

Yes I too have a new notebook every year! Spend months planning and doing a 'brochure' for us in publisher with all holiday references adrs etc. such fun!

I think its sad people cant just be pleased for us that we have all found something we love. I know somebody that has a timeshare in spain goes every year and loves it. Good for them! I dont find the need to find that odd. But they said people make comments to them as well.

Many of my work colleagues and even my mum and sister always manage to to make some kind of sarcastic comment when I say how excited I am about going back to WDW. I've now learnt to totally ignore them and just enjoy the "glow" that knowing I'm going back to my happy place brings

Love it! I get that glow too. Maybe they are envious of our glow!

I work in a pub and always get abuse.Usually the sort of stuff like Arnt you a little old?Why are you going there if you havnt got Kids?Your not going there again are you?Blah blah blah blah!!
I work all year round dealing with drunks majority of the time so its my only escape from reality.I love being able to do things like ride Dumbo or have my picture with Mickey as nobody cares and let's all be honest we all long to be kids again.As I tell them I rather be going to WDW every year than going to a villa in benidorm and yes iv been to other places in America but Orlando is my home from home and I wouldn't rather be anywhere else

I haven't experienced this as I've only just been on my first trip but I agree with the previous poster who mentioned Disney working out to be a better deal. Me and my DBF went to Spain in 2010 and paid £650 each for a hotel and flights for 1 week, on top of that we had to pay for excursions, I think it worked out at about £800 each.

We are planning a holiday just us in 2014 and for an extra £250 each we can go to Disney for 10 nights including flights hotel and tickets.

Well worth the extra £250 IMO!

I always get funny looks.
DH and I went to WDW for our honeymoon in 2007, then to DLP 2008, then WDW 2010 the DLP 2012 and WDW 2013, people keep asking me if we are "all Disneyed out yet?" I reply "Never!"
I also get asked why we never go anywhere else. Partly because my DH feels uncomfortable in countries where he doesn't know the language and also because there is never enough to do, we are not beachy or cultural people, Disney has everything we need and enjoy on a holiday in one place, we know what we are getting with it and LOVE it.
