  • [Chat] Now THIS shows how much I miss it!

    I just sat for 30 minutes watching an infomercial - that's right, an informercial for the Disney Vacation Club. I did this just because they included video of Walt Disney World. I know I miss it, but I didn't know how bad my withdrawl was until just now.
    Am I nuts?

                            The Vacation Club commercial is on right now. Does anyone know if this is actually worth it?

                                Because my family doesn't have passes anymore or enough money to make trips to the Anaheim parks or a once-a-year trip to WDW, we have this running gag of doing and watching things Disney that we appropriately call "living the dream." Every time we go to Downtown Disney we walk around the Grand Californian for a bit and sit in the lobby, pretending to live the dream. Then we usually make our way to the Disneyland Hotel and look at the Big Thunder model for at least ten minutes at a time. Whenever the WDW Specials of the 90's sitcoms come on we always record them and watch them at least more than once. I almost have the entire Roseanne WDW episodes memorized because I've seen them so much. Whenever an ad for either resort comes on we get all melodramatically excited and begin to goof around. I made an entire CD using soundtracks and sound effects from Disneyland so we could listen to it on long car trips. When my mom is bored we play a game where she looks up on-ride videos, plays the first few seconds of it (I can't see it) and sees if I can guess what ride it is. I haven't been wrong guessing one yet and it kind of worries my mom that I know more about Disney theme parks than I do about math. Then there are all the Travel Channel WDW (and the rare DL) episodes and the Modern Marvels WDW episode that come on every summer that we always make time to watch. Our scrapbooks showing family vacations to both domestic resorts have been looked at countless times. I literally ripped out the older park maps to look at them a few years ago. And then there are the free vacation club DVD's where they give info about the resorts and share some awesome footage and details about the parks. Our DVD of that is scratched and smudged.

                                Living the dream folks. Living the dream...
                                "Y'all come back now, ya hear?"

                                  Wow - I do exactly the same thing! I do a search of my Time Warner cable system every week for keyword Disney. I don't always find good park stuff, but when I do I'll almost always flag it for recording, even if I've seen the same Samantha Brown special many times over!

                                      whew! i was worried i was the only one! i ordered the planning dvd after i booked our trip... and watched Dland, WDW, and the cruise sections to get 'pumped up!' i also watched the roseanne/full house/ family matters episodes, and of course youtube walkthroughs... and more recently, i've shown my 4 year old youtube things and the snippets on the disneyland websites, with the idea that she'll somewhat know what to expect on a ride/fantasmic, etc. She doesn't scare easily (in fact, the kid is fearless, which scares mommy sometimes!) but she likes to know what's going on during a show, movie, etc.
                                      anyways, i think the disney-obsession-look-at-videos thing is harmless... for me, it helps pass the time, and build up excitement for my vacation (or the next trip!)
                                      hell, disneyland is in september, and i've already started planning and saving for WDW in 3 years!

                                        Another great way to get a Park fix is to listen to Disney music, especially the background and show music you hear at the Parks and resorts. There are some Disney streaming audio sites out there that are great for that sort of thing.

                                        :music:
