The first time I went to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, I didn't know they gave out candy. I found myself taking off in Peter Pan through Wendy's room and started to eat a Twix bar. I became giddy and thanked God! I was in Disney, on Peter Pan AND...wait for it....AND, eating chocolate. I remember feeling guilty and thinking "life does not get better than this."

I always make eye contact with the Fairy Godmother during the parade and throw huge exaggerated kisses at her to get one thrown back in return. Many times, it's the same Godmother and I know she knows me by now. I don't exactly blend in. If I miss her attention, I get sad for at least 20 minutes 🙂

when i was looking for names for my son walt disney came up in the convo and i named him matthew elias. but we call him elias and i know im a disny nerd now!!
Last night my 4 year old kept saying he was tired. It was only 9, and I thought he was just winding down, so I kept on planning and checking the boards, chats and facebook. and he put himself to bed. It couldn't have been more than 10 minutes, and I noticed how quiet it was...there he was curled up on my bed, under a pillow sound asleep.
I didn' t wish him sweet dream or kiss him or anything, I'm a heel. I need to listen better.
After reading some of the other confessions, I think I belong here.

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. 😉
we are leaving for Disney in two days for a week long trip (part of my hs grad present and my dads 50th bday present). we practically go every year. my sister and I can't wait so we play all of our disney cds to prepare. when we are really desperate though, we turn on aerosmith and pretend we are in line for Rockin Roller Coaster 🙂
I took my daughter to WDW for her Birthday (Thanksgiving) then 2 weeks later I booked a surprise last minute weekend trip to surprise her (that's what I tell myself) for christmas!! 2 Disney trips in 1 month = totally neurotic!!
I was at the hairdresser's last week and she mentioned that her family was taken a trip to the world in July but really had nothing planned, they were not staying on site and she had not done any research for a mid July trip. She did not even know that there were web sites devoted to trip planning! She had not been since 1981 and really didn't have a good time, the lines were too long and it was hot.
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.
-I currently have 3 Major trips planned to WDW in the next 10 months with possibly 2 minor trips.

-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.
