    All but 7 but I did marry a Minnie so that has to count for something.

    DW tolerates all of our Disney trips as it's a very relaxing trip for her as she can go with her own flow and come and go as she pleases.

    Me and DD always hit the parks running and until late into the night.

    Check out DDs TINK ROOM in my Sig. She has it bad as well. But we had to take down her Bed as it was just getting to be to much with her growing and needing the room. I have to rework some stuff for her.

    Add to your List
    1> Disney songs on your Mp3 player
    2>Disney Ringtones for your Cell.
    3> everything Disney for Wallpapers and screensavers.
    4> Disney Fonts and Icons as well.
    5> and you bought the Disney Bedding for your room

    Goofy should be our Mascot as lets face it we all are a bit and he was the ultimit Disney Dad

    Another Disney Dad here. Where do I send my application?

    I like to plan my next disney trip before I leave for the current trip. I am currently working on my 2008, 2009, and 2010 trips simultaneously. Unfortunately my wife is not as much of a Disney fan. She says that the more I talk about it, the less she wants to go. She just wants to know when we are going and at what hotel. All other planning matters are my resposibility but no commando trips are allowed.

    Fortunately my DS(3) is beginning to show signs of Disneyitis. When mommy is sleeping, we watch Disney episodes on the Travel Channel. I recorded all the episodes on my DVR.

    I wish could tell you how to get your wife excited about Disney. We really didn't do anything special. Our son and I started planning our second trip while we were packing to leave WDW during our first trip. After the second trip, a year later, she was hooked. There was no resistance when we wanted to book our third trip. 2 weeks after our third trip, SHE had our fourth trip booked (for the week before Thanksgiving last year - she wanted to see Disney Christmas decorations). Since then she has been reading this DIS boards and planning and dreaming almost as much as our son and I. Now if we don't have a trip planned, one of us just have to mention Disney and she starts with the look of Magic in her eyes just like us!

    Mascot should be either Goofy, Grumpy or Tigger.

    I'd also like to put forward some more criteria:

    You have Disney knicknacks all over your "man cave/dude room/office".
    You drink your coffee from one of your multiple Disney mugs.

    I would like to join too! "We" also watch the Disney planning DVD every once in a while, and look forward to the Travel Channel Disney specials that come on, usually at Christmas time.

    DW planned our first trip last October, and we were hooked. We are now planning our second trip for next November...the whole family can't wait to get back there.

    I too am guilty of the Disney merchandise at my desk at work. I try to place them apart enough so that people don't think I'm weird. It's only a Mickey "#1 Dad" mug, magnetic clips, pictures, Expedition Everest screen saver ... ok, it IS starting to sound like a lot.

    Anyway, I'm in! :thumbsup2

    I'm in. My wife says that I am her 4th son :lmao: I can relate to more than a few of the criteria.

    You can add Disney Luggage, Computer Bag, Animated Mickey Watch, Goofy Hitch Receiver Cover on my Truck, Goofy pjs and slippers, Mickey pjs and bathrobe and a lot of other Disney clothing. I especially like my Grumpy's Gas and Grease Mechanics shirt :goodvibes We are DVC owners and spent 3 weeks there this summer. We just got back from a 4 day weekend (just the wife and I) and have 2 trips planned for 2008.

    I think the Best Disney Dad ever, aka Goofy should be the mascot. :thumbsup2

    I'm already talking about my next trip which is a little less then a year away. As soon as I get back my wife and daughter take a bet on how long it will take before I start making plans for the next trip.

    I'm in too. WDW is a way of life. I like to spend time dreaming about moving to Celebration so that we could go to WDW almost every day. That would just rule. :banana: If I ever win the lottery, that is so my plan.

    You can count me in. Another thing that might be added is "Do you have any Character ties to wear" I have a Donald Duck tie, Mickey and Goofy Golf Tie, and a Tigger golf tie.

    My wife liked Disney before, but she absolutely loves it now, as our DD 2 saw Mickey for the first time this year, at Disneyland and WDW, and the looks in both of their eyes is truly magical!! My wife keeps asking me which parks, if not all, are we doing at WDW in 2008!!!

    I need to find another baseball cap with the great embroidered Grumpy's Gas & Grease logo on the front of it. This baseball cap was on sale at Grumpy's Service Station in California Adventure. Unfortunately, I only purchased one white baseball cap with a blue bill while we were at Disneyland and California Adventure last August. After wearing the cap so much, I really need to purchase at least two more just like it. Can anyone help in my quest to locate two more caps?
