lol worse than london by a long way, but she did like the eiffel tower thoOriginally Posted by lisaw, post: 139969
London is cool as long as you don't go in on a hot, humid day. Air quality sucks big time then and I always come home with a massive headache. That aside it is one of the greatest cities in the world.
I think you can do both....
say, instead of going to Disney every year, go year to Disney, the next year somewhere else, the next to Disney and so on...
I love to travel, but I also love Disney, it is the ONLY place in the world where I fell 100% relaxed and happy and fell that I can just ENJOY and to worry about a thing...
We were lucky--some of our group already was in Europe and the rest of us were leaving from the west coast later that day. Due to time differences, I was just getting ready to leave for the airport (PHX) for Los Angeles to meet the others for the outbound flight when the first plane struck. I was so dumbfounded that I just sat and stared at the television--then the second plane struck. Everything locked down pretty quickly after that. It was obvious we weren't going anywhere soon! Then the horror of everything began to sink in--you know the rest! :(Originally Posted by Rosie0610, post: 139963
Our little trip was a minor inconvenience in the scheme of things.
Nope..not in my 35 years of life have I wanted to be any other place but Disney...CA, FL, Toyko, hong kong, Paris and any other place they decide to open one..I just want Disney
The four main reasons for us visiting Florida so often are :~
1. The climate,
2. You can eat the food
3. We have made some good friends over there
4. You can speak the language! [almost ]
OK the Orlando area is very commercialised but after all it is the entertainment capital of the World after all.
Whenever we are in danger of suffering "Disney overload", we venture to other places in Florida which are fantastic [the Keys, the Everglades, Naples, Vero Beach etc.etc.] and in all the years we have been visiting that state we have only really scratched the surface as there are loads of other places we would like to see in Florida given the time.
Fortunately I have visited loads of other places on business and for holidays but somehow, however nice those places are, I feel that I am always comparing them to Florida.
Exactly. You can do both. And quite frankly the thought of going nowhere but Disney disappoints me. There's a whole world out there to be explored. Imagine if your kids grew up thinking there was just "home" and "Disney" and never saw anything else.Originally Posted by Mari, post: 140016
We did compare Mexico and Barbados to Disney I must admit lol... we even said the Mexican Resort we stayed at was almost exactly like being back at Coronado Springs Resort! I do love experiencing other cultures though and it has certainly opened my eyes to how people live elsewhere and how they cope. For instance... we all know about the slave trade but actually being there in Barbados and seeing the history and actually talking and meeting people who's heritage is part of that is absolutely fascinating. Our taxi driver (one whom we got to know very well) took us around the Island and told us the history and pointed out all sorts of things and told us things that you don't get to read in history books over here. Google Bussa, third one down....
Exactly! (again )Originally Posted by Crayola DeVille, post: 140915
Disney insulates you from reality. Much as I love it, I realise it's not the be all and end all of life.
But having said all that DH has insisted our next trip will be to Disney lol.
