    What is this something better to do that you speak of????? I'm sorry but, I think your wrong, there is absolutely NOTHING better to do than go to Disneyworld. I am sure that in your time you have been to other places than Disney at one point or another but, look where you went back to over and over again. You have nothing to be ashamed of....stand proud as a Dis Lifer!!! :wave2:

    You are not old! At Disney time stops and we are all seven! Disney is the best for every age. Although we have not spent as much time as you have(only in my 30s) we look forward to each visit because there is something for everyone.

    The only problem I see is people who don't appreciate our love for Disney!

    Jaybrad,

    I understand your situation. I fail to see the problem.

    A coworker of mine just today told me I was out of my mind to go to Disney again (20 times in 10 years). Thank God I won't bump into her on my vacation!

    My very first trip to Disney was in 1990 and I was 39 (my husband was 45, but he had been once before). In the last 15 years we have made over 30 visits to Disney World.

    Going to Disney keeps both of us young (and young at heart). Watch out, here we come again!

    I'd rather go to WDW than anywhere else in the world & I really mean that. We just love it and so we purchased DVC. Best thing we've ever done. Saved us a TON of money :banana:

    DH is 60 and the older we get, the more we like WDW vacations! I take two trips per year and one is always WDW and sometimes twice! Heading down again in Oct for 11 days.

    You youngsters have been more times than we have but you aren't nearly as old as we are. We will be taking our 16th trip to WDW in August. I'm 75 and DH will be 83 before we leave. We were sure we would never be able to go again after his heart surgery last October but here we are - counting the days. Must admit I'm a little nervous and scared but it gives him something great to look forward to. I told him if it works out well we may just plan another trip next year.
