    It's tolerated. Not too bad at the moment because next trip is way off still. Come 6 months before we go and I start making lists and stuff and he'll start to roll his eyes and get that glazed look. At some point he'll say "just tell me where we're going each day when we wake up in the morning" and then bury his head in a book.

    We continually fight over shelf space though - my Disney stuff vs his books.

    Well I have been advised by "the source" that I am a Disney Commando....Course my family (momma, sister and my grandparents, rest their souls) are also Disney fanatics!

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Well my mom did ask if I could go somewhere besides WDW. I promptly booked a trip to Disneyland

    Everyone knows I am a Disney nut. I don't think I even get looks anymore..or maybe I am just used to it.

    We are both the same, although I think I prefer a more structured visit. I like to know what each day will hold, rather than leave it to the moment. I hate standing around saying, 'what do you want to do?' 'I dunno. what do YOU want to do.' I've found that having at least a this park on that day plan is beneficial and much less stressful.

    Mine are all just as bad as me - I'm an expert brainwasher!

    DH already has our ADR spreadsheet on his computer, the kids talk about it all the time. My mum and dad loved it and would go again if their medical conditions allowed it :(

    My brother and SIL, niece and nephew are off there in Oct '09, for the second time together although both have been before, my best friend went for the first time this year and loved it and can't wait to go again and other friends go fairly regularly.

    The inlaws are regular visitors as well.

    Anyone else i couldn't care less what they think

    See I think I should get my trips for free with the amount of people that I have converted :D

    We must have the same parents! That's ok, this time I am taking my parents kicking and screaming all the way to WDW. They will probably become "hooked" on Disney too.

    My Mom became hooked when we took her last trip!

    We have friends who roll their eyes and say that they'll never understand. And you know what? Thats fine! At work, I mostly get: "Your going AGAIN?"..then 3 co-workers ask me to help them plan their trips..

    Chris humors me, but secretly, he's as crazy about Disney as I am..
