  • Missing WDW

    We miss it - my wife and I were talking last week saying how we wanted to go back but my wife is a photographer and over the winter she is busy with her clients and i have had all my vacation so we're stuck here in Toronto.

    does anyone tell you to expand your vacations and not to go to WDW all the time? I made a comment at work last week and a couple of co-workers ask if we were going to visit any other state or province other then Florida and WDW.

    hummm what a concept.

    Re: Missing WDW

    My wife and I usually go to WDW at least once a year. A lot of our non-Disney friends think we're nuts. However, we also love traveling in general, so before we have kids, we wanted to go to Europe. My last WDW trip was in Jan. of '04. We went to Europe for 2 weeks that Spring. We also went to Disneyland Paris for a day (how could we not), but I don't count that as a Disney trip, because it was part of another vacation. Earlier this year, we were planning a Halloween trip down to WDW, but things changed in a hurry! My wife became pregnant (due Dec. 31st) with our first child, so we decided to go on a Hawaii trip since she couldn't do a lot of attractions!

    Sooooo, it has been waaaay too long since we've been to WDW and we are jonesing for it bad!

    I feel your pain!

      I couldn't stand it where I was, so I moved to WDW. You should too.

        This is what I'm doing in 3 years. I promissed my daughter she could graduate from her high school then we are off to FL to live near WDW. I hate living this far away from it.

          I get this all the time, and it used to bother me. Now I just give 'em a smile and say "you just don't understand", and usually leave it at that. As long as I'm still happy spending my hard earned money and vacation time doing what I want, it's no one else's business.

            Re: Missing WDW

            Personally, there is so much more to Orlando and Central FL besides WDW that it really is a pitty to miss some of the other attractions (besides theme parks) in the area by just staying on WDW property. It's like going all the way to Japan just for TDR, instead of discovering the abundant natural beauty and culture of that facinating nation. But as your average person with no interest in much else would say.. "it's none of their business how I spend my money" jada jada... then continue to remain ignorant about the possibilitites.

              This is true wisdom, your money, and your time. I wish more people could understand this. I am old enough to make decisions about where I go on vacation. where I stay, and for what lenght of time. What I do with my money, and my time on vacation is my business. If I am looking for alternatives to where I will stay, and what I will do, I will ask for them.

                  Re: Missing WDW

                  Whether visiting WDW or DLR, after coming back I always go through what I like to call "Disney withdraw." The memories of those sights, sounds, and smells beckon me. My co-workers think I'm nuts for going back several times a year, but I can't help it. I have to get my fix.:lol:

                    A small hint. When having a rant about ignorant people, lets not be ignorant in how you go about it.

                    Maybe some people have wish to do any of the other things in Central Florida. Maybe some people want to spend the money that they earnt on doing things they want to do.

                    Crazy theory, I know.

                        we LOVE traveling (good thing, being military)....and we were happy going all kinds of places....until we hit Disney World last July....then, we were hooked. We've gone back twice....and we just got back 2 weeks ago...and I already want to go back. Silly hubby insists we pay off this credit card bill first though. Phooey.Yeah, we'll go on more vacations...see more places..but, right now, we're only 8 hours away from Orlando..only God knows where we'll be in the next year or so....we might be in Germany...so, we try to enjoy our surroundings while we can. Suck up as much Disney as possible. Haha.

                          New to this bunch so a quick hoody doo.

                          I have been going to WDW since not only when it first opened which also happened to be when I got married with children. Every year I drove from NJ to Florida, a long two days but in my eyes worth it! I finally went for it and moved to Southwest Florida. Now since I moved I of course go twice a year (3 hour drive) and usually stay at an onsite resort of some sort.

                          I am leaving the 29th of this month once again to WDW to attend the Halloween Party and the following day to attend the Food & Wine Festival. A blast it will be!

                          As of yet I haven't felt the need to visit any of the Orlando other area attractions. Still happy with the MK, Epcot, AK and so on. Not tried of them yet! Matter of fact, I still feel as if I haven't seen it all!. One day.

                            :lol: I am sooooooooo missing WDW-

                            We try to go every year if not, every other year. Our last trip was April 2005 and we had to cancel our 06' trip due to some family issues.

                            We are going to WDW in spring 2007 and it just cannot get here soon enough!

                            As for vacationing elsewhere.... We have but wherever we go we always say "Wish we were in WDW"

                                i go to WDW every year- at least once. I have to- I go to withdrawals. I have problems. I am an addict.
                                But, I also go somewhere else very year. I spend all my hard earned money vacation- it is what I love to do

                                  I've been to WDW every year for the last six years, always in October.

                                  Unfortunately or fortunately however you look at it, we've already booked up for October 2007 - Isla Margherita, apparently a tropical paradise down by Venezuela in the Caribbean. But I know I'll miss my Disney fix (it's coming up to a year since I was last in a Disney park and I'm really missing it quite bad) so I think we are going to Disneyland Paris for a weekend at Christmas. And of course there's Disneyland in California in 2008... might not be at WDW for a long while.

                                    I am widely known as "Disney Crazy" to most of the people that know me so I don't take it personally. I just look at it as some place I enjoy going on a regular basis and it gives me great family time. Nothing better for me than seeing my daughter smile, except maybe when Mickey is making her do it.

                                      When I was in my 20's my boyfriend and I would go down for the day all the time. My father said to me once why don't you just move there! Little did he know we had already decided to! We lived in Orlando for about 1 1/2 years and I'm still not tired of it. I too am considered Disney Crazy by most people who know me, Summer. We go about 4-5 times a year but no more day trips with 2 small children though. We stay no less than 3 days now. And I don't care what others think...life is too short to not do what you want to do just because someone else thinks it's nuts.

                                        In 1996 when DH and I were getting married, we decided to go to WDW for our honeymoon. Several people made comments like- You're going there for your honeymoon???? or Why on earth would you go to a kids place for your honeymoon....

                                        Well, just so you know, those people have appologized to us since because they have now been to WDW and are "DISNEY CRAZY" as well
