You’re going to Disney again??

Whistling Mickey

You plan your Disney vacation. You are super excited. You tell a friend or two. Then…. you hear that question… “You’re going to Disney, AGAIN?” Yes, again! Or maybe, someone asks “weren’t you just there?” or “don’t you get tired of going to the same vacation spot?” They don’t understand why you go all the time, and you don’t understand why they don’t go!

I suppose this could be a spinoff of the previous blog, pertaining to what makes Disney so special to us. The Magic of Disney can really put a hold on your heart, like no other place can. A lot of us feel the need to plan another Disney vacation, even before we come home from the current one. Why is that? Why do we keep going back? I think it’s a simple answer really. Because Disney is Magic!

Where else in the world can you go where your favorite childhood dreams come to life? Where else can you go to escape the realities of everyday stresses? Where else can you go to feel like a kid again, and feel totally fine with not growing up? Disney, that’s best answer. I know for me and my family, there really is no other place that comes to mind when it’s time to discuss a vacation. I’ve gotten so bad, that I have a hard even taking small trips locally, because I know that money could go towards our next adventure to Disney. A little Disney OCD? Maybe so. That’s fine by me though.

Sometimes I think about going someplace else for a family vacation. I’ve thought about the beach, other amusements parks, the islands, etc. But when push comes to shove, and it’s time to decide on where to go, we always end up choosing Disney. It never gets old. It’s never boring. It always gives me that feeling of home. You get it, right? I thought so!

So, when someone asks you why you’re going to Disney “again”, don’t feel bad. Some get it, some don’t. I would encourage you to try and share the Disney Magic if you can, tell them they don’t know what they’re missing, because they don’t. Once you go spend time with the Mouse and all his Pals, it’s hard to say no when it comes time for a getaway. Life is short, spend more time at Disney!

    My husband and I have had the same comments and questions lately. We were there in December for our wedding and now we are back in March. I say you can’t go too much. The beauty of any Disney park it that it is never done. It is always evolving, for proof check out my latest article. Disney is always ‘plusing’ ( making it better, adding new technology, or cleaning things up) everything; attractions, dining, shows, hotels, events, etc.

    We have been 7 times since 2007. Every time I announce that we will be going again, there is a group of people who are just as excited as I am. And then there are the hand full of nay-sayers. 🙁
    I hear, just like you said above, “you’re going again”? “weren’t you just there”? “don’t you want to go someplace else”? and my favorite “you don’t have the money to go again”. I simply respond with “yes we are going again, we were just there, we don’t want to go anyplace else and we use tax return money to go and it is well worth cutting some other things to go…….again and again and again.
    Sometimes I wish there was a way to show people who have never gone to Disney, what it is truly about. Not the money, not the rides (they are super fun tho). Its the “magic”. Its the look on the kids faces when they see Mickey Mouse or Cinderella. Its being an adult and being able to feel like a kid (and its allowed without funny looks).
    The only reason I feel bad when someone gives the “again” speech, is because they truly don’t know what they are missing. ºoº
