Even though this blog is supposed to be about what to do in between your WDW trips, this is something I just had to address. If I had a nickel for every time someone had a comment about me going to Disney…again, I’d be rich.
Disney is just not for everyone, I get it. But do some people really have to make a comment about me going to Disney every year? Now, I know someone who goes down to Aruba every year…for over 30 years! Not once have I heard anyone comment about him going there. And he stays in the same hotel each year. So why WDW? What is it about Disney that some people think you can’t visit year after year? They make it sound like I’m going to some plain, boring been there done that just for little kids location. Well good for them. For those who think it’s just a place with kiddie rides, they are just so misinformed and missing the boat. Personally I’d rather go to WDW every year instead of going to a place where you can’t leave the resort in fear of getting mugged.
Now what I find the most funny is, some of these people who have made comments in the past about my next trip are also the ones who ask for my advise when they decide to go. It’s like some people who live near an airport and complain about the noise. They can’t stand the airport but when it’s time for them to have to fly out, they love the convenience of living near an airport. Not that I’m some WDW expert, but I’ve been there enough to know a few of the ins and outs to having a good trip. And anything I don’t know off hand, I know where to find the answer. It’s kind of funny, when they ask me for suggestions or looking for answers to a question, they first ask me ” you go to Disney a lot right”? Like they can’t tell by my Mickey Mouse tie or Mickey watch or the pictures of past trips hanging on my office wall. Or maybe it’s the classic 3 circle Mickey head’s I always seem to doodle on any scrap of paper I find. But boy they keep coming back asking me what I think about this or that while they’re doing their planning. But I don’t really mind.
Bottom line, stop asking me if I’m going to WDW again. No I don’t ever get tired of going. Yes I still look forward to it each time. Yes there are new things I see or discover on ever trip. Yes I’m gong again. It’s my happy place. I feel safe there. I love the “magic” it all represents. If that’s the only thing people can rag on me about, I guess that’s ok.
That’s it for now. See ya real soon!
