Welcome to THE CONFESSIONAL. This is the place where you can divulge your deepest, darkest, most neurotic things you have done in times of Disney desperation. Don’t be ashamed. We’ve all had these moments. Make yourself comfy in our confessional chair and tell us. What are the things you have done in order to get your Disney “fix”?
I didn' t wish him sweet dream or kiss him or anything, I'm a heel. I need to listen better.
Whenever an occasion calls for it, I let out my best Goofy ya-hoo-hoo-hoey yodel.
I often force my husband to hook up our old VCR that I “borrowed” from my parents five years ago in order to play my old “Disney Classics” on VHS (the way they were meant to be played). There is something about the sound effect when the “Disney Classics” diamond-logo appears that just makes me all warm and fuzzy (as well as crave popcorn)! I will never get rid of these, no matter how much he begs. (Even though we have been together for 12 years, I am still working to convert him to a DH. It still seems to disturb him, though, that I know the words to all the songs and most of the lines in each movie.)
I also started planning our 2011 WDW trip in three years early in 2008. It’s still almost a year away, but I have already planned our daily itinerary based on old calendars. Everyday I pull up the itinerary and read through it, as well as look at photos of the resort where we will be staying. I also often watch WDW videos on youtube and other sites and get teary-eyed when watching (even when they aren’t meant to be sentimental). Hopefully this trip will help with my husband’s conversion. 🙂
I’m also trying to convince him to visit some of his family in southern California, under which pretext I can plan at least two Disneyland days. 😉
I was appalled, the following week, I created a cheat sheet with park hours and the best park recommendations for her dates as well as my "tips" for touring with teenagers. I dropped them off for her with my copy of the Unofficial Guide. The girls at the salon probably think I am nuts and should mind my own business, I have only been going to this salon for a little over a year and don't know them that well!
I couldn't stand the thought that their family would take a trip and be miserable because they weren't prepared! I think I just want everyone to love it as much as we do.
-For our Christmas trip we are using the DxDDP for the first time and I have a planning board covered in Post-it notes with restaurants and things to do so I can easily "map out" my ADRs.
-I take the morning off if I need to book ADRs @ 180 days in order to ensure I won't be disturbed. I also normally have 3 plans for meals in case things don't work out.
