Okay, I think I just made it official. I am in need of a 12 step program, an intervention…or something.
I just booked our trip for Oct 30, 2010-Nov 6, 2010. I have been waiting anxiously for them to open up for this far ahead. It is all I have been thinking about since we returned in February. This will be nearly 2 years of planning & waiting for this vacation. I have never planned anything this far in advance-not even my wedding.
I have known for quite some time that I have had a minor Disney related addiction, but I have come to realize that Disney has had a hold on me since my first trip in 1986, as a teenager.
My first tip off of the impending slide into Disney abyss should have been that we planned a Disney Fairytale Wedding. Then, I guess I passed the addiction on to my kids, in-utero, because they too are Disney obsessed.
Then, about 2 years, came what should have been the Disney equivalent to an overdose. I got a Disney themed tattoo:ohmy:. Now, that may not sound like much, but it is completely out of character for me. I have no other tattoos, mid-30’s, and I permanently marked my body with a tattoo that covers a 4x8" area on my lower back. This has solicited an outpouring of conversation at Disney World when I have bent over and it has “peeked” out. I rationalize my addiction by telling myself that this is harmless. I don’t drink, smoke or do drugs, so do I really have a problem?
I would like to know, am I as crazy as I think? Are all of you as Disney obsessed like this? What is the most Disney obsessive thing you have done?
This forum will hopefully save me from spending $$ on a therapist … Hmmm… money saved = money for Disney:laugh:
