Why cant I stay away?
« on: October 12, 2012, 02:17:16 PM »
Ok so this year for the first time in 14 years my wife and I wont be going to Disney. In an effort not to depress myself I tried staying away from the forum, avoiding all our old Disney movies, even put my books in a box in the loft. That lasted about 2 months, I just cant stay away and although I still cant go I shall be living the dream through all the excellent trip reports.
But why cant I stay away?

I can only say because its the only place I know where the outside world gets forgotten, no news, no bills etc I cant stop smiling and Im a big kid again. My names Simon and Im a Disneyaholic. That feels good to get off my chest..

So why cant you stay away?

I hear you, it's exactly the reason why we love it so much. It's not so much about the rides and the shops and such (even though they're all amazing), but the true magic lies in its ability to make one forget completely about the real world and let them wander off into a new one. It literally feels like entering a whole new universe... One where everybody's happy and there are no worries, no bills to pay, no news that can set you off for the entire day, etc. Not even the bad weather or being ill can make it an, even remotely, bad day.  :D

I approve these comments.....(oeps all into the american presidential election  :P )

It's just that magical spirit and great eye for the Disney details which keep me attracted to the parc  :thumbs:

hi simon, i agree i am a disneyaholic too! i think thats why i cant stay away from the forum to be honest because i know i can come on here talk disney and know that the person/people reading are truely interested in what i have to say and are all well and ready for a good chit chat about nothing other than disney.
Plus this year has been a really tough one for me, the forum has literly been somewhere i could come and know that i could read something that would put a smile (even just a little one) on my face, i will admit to staying away a little after my last visit because i was fIrmly in post disney trip blues and being on the forum just put me even more into that, but once they had lessened i was back and reading (more like lurking) but once again i'm posting and answering questions again.... and well it feels good to be back again =]

me too, I also had a tough time following my husbands death and didn't think I could go back to DLP without him, but all the family went and although I was a bit depressed, I felt going back to DLP was the right place for me to be, it was like having a big hug just when you needed it. This year was my 2nd visit to DLP without him.
I always feel as if a weight has been lifted off the shoulders the moment you walk through the gates, all the outside world forgotten no deadlines to meet, just forget and enjoy. Definitely the happiest place to be. I have to say that joining the forum after years of lurking has been good for the soul. :minnie:

I know how everybody feel's we have been to Disney every year for the last 7 years. This year however we have not been able to go and we have all been really depressed about it. Looking at all the video's and pictures people have posted only added to the disapointment. With 2 kid's it is not the cheapest place to go to so when they had the offer on of 2 free day's and night's we booked. We are going Feb next year not an ideal time with the weather but who cares. We are not going to tell the kid's (aged 6 & 10) until the morning we are going. My husband and I are so excited the kid's are longing to go back so the look on their faces when we tell them really will be a picture to treasure. No other park's can compete with The Disney Experience. As soon as you get there you have a great big grin the whole time. So many great memories for the kid's to treasure.

Awww I love this topic , its so true what everyone is saying. A trip to Disney is like a big cuddle , or a bubble of happiness for the time your there. I love every single ride and go mad for them but its just the atmosphere and being there really. The smells and the sounds , , it must be the only time Im excited to get up for breakfast at the crack of dawn! Going in 3 weeks for whats prob going to be my last trip in a while , getting married in september so need to save! ( Guess where my honeymoon is starting though?!) and already Im depressed at the thought of this trip being over!

I know I started this thread but Im loving the replies. Walt was right when he described it as the happiest place on earth. I love how much of it you can take with you when you leave. I do a lot of driving for work and have the 15th anniversary CD in the car at all times. Doesnt matter the day Ive had that CD on the way home makes me grin every time
