    1. You actually go to bed before dark, because the next day will come sooner!

    2. You stop at every Dollar Tree or Dollar Store to look for Disney window decorations.

    3. When the famous Mickey head and ears shape seems to appear in more and more places.

    4. People at work come to you as the "Disney vacation expert" for trip tips and information.

    Anyone have any to add????:thumbsup2

    LOL, I had my MIL paint Sleeping Beauty's castle complete with a flame throwing Maleficent Dragon, on my daughter's wall.

    Everyone at work thinks I am a weird Disney nut, but that's ok with me!

    Fly :hippie:

    You panic because you don't have ADR for dinner tomorrow at you local Red Lobster.

    I've had the hidden mickey thing -- I start seeing them everywhere about 3 weeks before our trip.

    The Disney-expert thing always happens after our trip -- we basically plan next year's trip as soon as we get home (so much easier that way)

    When planning meals at home, you find yourself thinking in terms of '1 Table Service, 1 Counter Service, 1 snack'...

    This is like therapy. I am so glad there are so many other people like me. Sometimes my coworkers look at me like I am crazy. I just tell them they have to go and see for themselves.

    That is just it. Many of my coworkers will ask "How many more days?" There is only one other person that I work with that has the disney fever.

    You wish the clerk at your local store would tell you to HAVE A MAGICAL DAY.

    1. You start making mousekeeping envelopes.
    2. You make scrapbooking pages to hang in the window or your room or on your door.
    3. You start stock piling pennies and quarters for the Pressed Coin Machines.
    4. You make your son walk around the house in water shoes so he can break them in before the trip because you know if he don't he'll get blisters while at Blizzard beach or Typhoon Lagoon.

    And my all time favorite......

    5. You check the mailbox everyday like a 5 year old kid, to see if today will be the day that you get Mickey mail!!!! :banana:

    You're walking in the cool stairwell at work on a humid day when suddenly the musty smell hits you and you think.. Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me:rotfl2:

    You dream you're at Disney, but for some reason your tickets are at home!

    We just recently passed our 90 day mark and ever since then I can't stop talking about Disney and what my dad and I are going to do when we get there, my mom who isn't going (The Disney magic has worn off for her) is kinda getting annoyed, but I can't help it! I try but anything and EVERYTHING reminds me of Disney now. :goodvibes

    How about????

    1. When you keep singing It's A Small World to yourself or find yourself humming it!

    2. When you make sure you have your disney luggage tags on your baggage.

    3. When you have watched the planning DVD more than once per day.

    4. When you get the maps out and really start planning your every move.

    5. When the hours get posted for the week you are going.

    6. And for me, since I go the Saturday after thanksgiving, before we sit down to eat and we go around the table and say what we are thankful for.... and it gets around to me, and my dad grimaces, oh lord, here it comes....and I jump up and saying, "I am going to Disney World."
