    When you get home from a wonderful holiday at Walt Disney World, what things do you miss so much that you want to go back?

    I miss the Florida smell that hits you as soon as you leave the airport, I know I am home then. A Dole Float at the Magic Kingdom, caramel popcorn at Epcot, pink lemonade. Feeling as if I don't have a care in the world and can do anything I want to. Being able to act like a child and have a cuddle with Mickey or play around with Goofy, there are so many other things. I also miss special friends that I only get to see once a year.

    I'm not even sure I have anything to add to your list...it's almost exactly mine!

    I miss the friendliness of it all. The camaraderie with complete strangers, the smiles on the faces of the CM's. I also miss coming home each night to a freshly made bed! It seems silly, but around here things are usually so hurried, I don't take the time to properly make my bed; but I do love coming home after a long day and pulling back the sheets.

    I miss the villa now :(

    I spent a good ten years telling you all how much I loved onsite and how I didn't want to drive and stay in a villa and now, pulling up in the car to that villa feels like coming home and I just love it. I've said to the owner several times that if he wants a 24/7/365 guard, I'll sleep in the garage :lol:

    We go out for drives around orlando and I just love that, all the little shops on the various strip malls and places I've never seen before.

    I miss the restaurants. I don't know where I could go in north west uk to get a steak anything like Charleys.

    I miss the sunshine right now. And stepping out of your back door into your own private pool.

    How do you answer that? I miss Mousekeeping. I don't have to clean or cook. I miss being waited on hand and foot when dining. I miss how the real world feels a million miles away and I don't have to worry about it. That and so much more.

    I miss walking around Epcot with a drink in my hand and the sun on my face listening to Off Kilter and The British Revolution. I miss getting into the pool after a long day at the park. I miss the smell of the orange groves on Soarin. I miss Wishes ,illuminations, fantasmic. I miss walking down Main Street smelling the confectionary shop and seeing the cast member selling balloons and the castle getting closer and closer. I miss everything about WDW and right at this moment I really miss it cause it is friggin freezing here in NYC and has been for about a month.

    I miss the fact that the only thing I have to think about is what to wear that day. I miss the smell of Disney, the friendliness of CM's, eating out every night, strolling everywhere rather than being in a hurry, not having to do any work or washing up. I miss the whole package and get really upset when it's time to come home.

    I miss being able to do that 'hands in the pockets, twisting with each step' walk. You know the one I mean, the one you can only do when everything's all right in your world!

    I miss how even laundry is "magical" :) (says the grumpy woman woefully behind on her laundry)
