We are quite repetitive when it comes to holidays. By that I mean we know what we like now.
We like going to America, itís easy, Iím not going to deny that.
We do love going to Disney, WDW that is. Been to Disneyland Paris, not interested in going back. That was when we were younger.
We are going to Disneyland in December for a couple of days for the first time, when we are in Scottsdale. ( a new destination for us).
Been to Vegas loads, done a few west coast trips and love Palm Springs. Wasnít too fussy on New York, and we absolutely love The Carolinaís, especially Pinehurst and HHI. We will always go here.
There are quite a few places in the States that I want to go, Lake Tahoe, Oregon, North Dakota, some of the baseball stadium, New England to name a few, and Iím sure we will.
Just because we go back to WDW doesnít mean we donít go elsewhere. Also, Iím not that interested in Vlogs, sometimes we watch them but very rarely, I donít spend a fortune on merch, I have 1 set of ears that I got for the 50th anniversary and 2 pins. I think thatís about it. We have only stayed onsite 2 times.
I just love the feeling of being there. ButÖ. I can only really manage a few days then need to get out and about, thatís where dh golf comes into play as we get out and about for that.
I actually donít even know why I am saying all this as it doesnít matter at allÖÖ we go with the opinion that everyoneís holiday is their holiday. Spend your own money on whatever makes you happy!

What annoys me about myself is that I will say I donít care what people think about my holidays then feel the need to rhyme off all the places in the world that Iíve been. Actually itís no oneís business if I travel the world, go to the same place or stay in my home town. It would be sad if I didnít know there was a big wide world out there and if I was in a situation where I was unable to travel but I can and this is what I choose to do.
What I do find interesting is the people who say ď oh I donít care what other people doĒ but feel the need to throw in a negative comment about it. So really you do care then?

My husband thinks my obsession for WDW is mad and has said in multiple times that we will go but because it is essential as if it was written into our marriage vows 😂😂

I have been 4 times since I was a baby. I believe my experiences of going with my parents and the memories made makes it kind of like nostalgia for me. Itís so much more than a holiday and is an experience.

I do think that my obsession became heightened during the pandemic and I got hooked on pricing holidays, watching vlogs about every room and hotel tour, getting knee deep into the off and on-site debate and coming on websites like this one. I discovered through all of this is that there is so much more to Disney than I have ever experienced and I want to to experience it all if money allowed.

I donít think or dream about other holiday locations in the same way I do for Disney. But at the same time I am not really into Disney films, merchandise unless I was in a park and wanted to buy in the moment or having my house decorated in this way. I did want to call my baby boy Walt but husband did not agree 😂😂

We plan to go next year hopefully but for the moment I just have to enjoy all I can through vlogs and reading about other travellers experiences.

I mean I guess there are valid points in there, crying at the sight of a fake castle as a grown person is a bit troublesome.

Some people do take the obsession to the unhealthy levels, but most people are balanced..

I think most people view orlando/florida as a place for excitement and enjoyment, it isn't just disney- its the whole thing( food, shopping, weather etc) along with the themeparks.


I think if you take it as it is , a nice place to visit and a holiday destination there is nothing wrong with it.

Well I donít think thereís anything wrong with welling up at something that creates strong emotion. Thereís an element of escapism and happiness that often leads to tears in someone prone to crying. I donít think thatís any worse than crying at a movie or TV show which I do frequently. Is that ďtroublesomeĒ?

Crying at a tv show or movie with character development , strong writing and actual acting direction designed to provoke a response from a viewer- yeah totally normal.

Sincerely crying at a fake castle and cartoon characters (designed for kids lets be honest) as a grown adult - not a normal behaviour for most people .

Thatís sad that you feel that way. An emotional response can be evoked by many things. Often itís nostalgia for the things that we remember from childhood. I donít see how you can possibly judge what is ďnormalĒ when you have no idea of anyone elseís circumstances.

For many it brings back a lot of memories from childhood. Iíve shed a tear when watching the fireworks and listening to the music. In those days we did not have hundreds of tv stations, video games or the internet . When we watched a film a Saturday matinee it was a real treat and not something you did every week. You could not watch something instantly like you can today. The world we have today makes everything accessible and maybe that spoils some of the magic of having to wait and see.

I can't speak for others, but for me, when I see the castle at Magic Kingdom for the first time on a trip I well up. It's not about the castle as such, for me it's about what the castle represents. To say that it's not "normal behaviour for most people" is pretty demeaning to those who are more emotional people - which is absolutely fine! No one should ever be made to feel ashamed for their reactions/emotions as it's such a personal thing.
