I have to explain. We did Disney, what, 9 times the past 7 years? I am the guy that everyone I know is annoyed by… “Dude, you sold out to that place, what the heck?” “Wow, you guys are stuck on Disney, you are idiots, they jus want your money.”
So, last December, a friend of mine said “Hey, we made reservations for a cruise, you and Jamie wanna go with us?” My wife and I looked at each other and said “Sure, why not, that would be great buddy”.
We made reservations for 3 days in New Orleans, 5 days on a cruise, and looked forward to it. We went ahead and made point rental (DVCrentalstore) reservations for Sept. 15-21 this year, but I felt burnt out, and didn’t do much other than grab the first dining reservations I could grab. We were going with the Disney friends from last year, so we were at least 10% excited, but not our normal 150% excited for Disney.
We did our trip, had a great time in NOLA, and liked the cruise, having a great experience in Cozumel, renting a Jeep and going to a super cool, no electricity, back side of the island bar (Coconuts). Great fun, great friends, and a country I haven’t been to in 12 or 14 years. We had a great time.
However, it.just.wasn’t.Disney. I was burnt out, I was sad, and I didn’t love my favorite beloved Disney like before, and I was upset…
Well, tonight, I looked online and saw my favorite Disney website of mousebuzz.com, read some trip reports, and read a couple of emails from a couple friends who went on lesser vacations…
Dang, I miss Disney. I am excited again. I miss the magic. Like the word I made up and shared with my email-friend Bill Burke from Mousejunkies, I am having “Wishdrawals”. I need my fix.
Thanks Mousebuzz. Can we leave tomorrow for our WL reservations?
