    Anticipation

    So yesterday my boyfriend told me he is taking me to Disneyland with my best friend and her husband in May! I am so excited I can barley sit still. I can see it all now! How do you handle the anticipation? I want to jump in the car and go now! What can I do to keep from going crazy?

    I start listening to Disney music, think about what I will do, etc. When you get there, it's amazing!

    Re: Anticipation

    I listen to music that reminds me of the parks or finding new tips and tricks I haven't tried before. I have to deal with the anticipation for a long time considering I don't get to go often for obvious reasons!
    I also tend to make a planner, but that'd probably only be a helpful thing if you're travelling as far as I do! Haha
    Have a great time, though! You must be so excited!!

    All the suggestions here are great! After all my pc probably has more Disney music on it than anything else.
    Hanging out here, and looking at photos and keeping up to date with whats going on is a good way to pass the time in excitement!
    With 3 OS trips just to visit Disneyland in the past 2 years, I've spent my time saving, anticipating and visiting... over and over again.
    It's a great thrill, with a tremendous payoff when the day actually comes around.

    Re: Anticipation

    I know exactly how you feel...since I too feel the anticipation of waiting until my next disneyland trip I find myself researching, planning, and reading. I bought a couple of guidebooks on DL and the disneyland detective book and my family thinks I am over-doing it but it makes me happy so I do it. I have learned alot and am using that for a better trip so to me it's worth it. For instance, I never knew about the premium seating for Fantasmic and now will take advantage of that and finally see the show this September.

    I watch Youtube videos/podcasts of rides, entertainment, fireworks shows, etc. It gets me so excited to go back. For me... I still have to wait 79 days so these little tidbits keep me sane!!
