    Re: What do you do when all is said and done?

    I immediately start planning my next trip and try to scheme ways to get time off work and more money to pay for trips in between.

    Additionally, I edit my pictures and start searching for things I want to see and do on my next trip.

    Re: What do you do when all is said and done?

    On the last night of my trip, I walk slowly out of Disneyland Park, and I don't look back. Looking back would signify that I'm not coming back, and in my heart, I know that I will.

    Disneyland is my happy place, and MiceChat helps to keep Disneyland with me all year. That and all the pictures, and all the new memories that I have collected.

    I don't get depressed. I guess I am odd like that.

    I do start planning my next vacation, even when I don't know when that will be. Because regardless of all the fun I had, and all the things that I did, there's always something that I've left behind that needs doing. There's always a reason that I need to return.

    Re: What do you do when all is said and done?

    Exactly one year ago today my hubby, two grands, and myself were in WDW for the first time. There for 8 days, met some friends twice, and had a terrific private tour of Hollywood studios with Jim Korkis. Sigh.

    I just think about the next time we can go.

    Hidden Mickey - Historical fiction about Walt that mixes action and mystery with time travel and fantasy! Tweens to adults will enjoy these novels. And now, three gamebooks to play in Disneyland, DCA and WDW Magic Kingdom!


    Check out my six action/adventure novels about Walt's lost diary and his epic quest. Visit my blog page!

    Re: What do you do when all is said and done?

    I take so many pictures that it takes me months to go through and edit them all. I space it out and don't edit huge batches at a time, this helps me relive the moments. I was lucky this year in that I had barely touched photos from a Halloween trip and we were back for Thanksgiving. But now I have to savor the memories and photos until probably August.

    now what?

    This is my least favorite part of the vacation. I usually slip into some hazy state of mind, laying in bed that night thinking "I was in Anaheim this morning, and now I have to go to work tomorrow." It's borderline depression. Does this happen to anyone else? What do you do after all is said and done?
    i look at my photos then get depressed because i gotta edit all 900 of them one by one on photoshop.. but then again it's like reliving the days at Disneyland! LOL

    kidding aside, when i am not at disneyland i am here getting my fill!

    Well when I get this feeling...I just don't think about the future, as in, look at all the photos you took or remember the fond memories you had =D

    Re: What do you do when all is said and done?

    I'm going to be there in 3 weeks right before my passport expires and knowing I can't renew mine for awhile makes me feel a few different emotions. I'm always depressed about leaving and become a little morose about it but this time I'll also have the added sadness of probably not returning for a bit. But, not having a passport makes me think of all the other places I should also visit. And so I suppose it's bittersweet. I went to Hawaii for the first time last year and would like to also visit some new places for the first time. Or maybe go back to DisneyWorld=) As I've only been there twice.

    Re: What do you do when all is said and done?

    A little envious of HiddenMickeyBook for meeting Jim Korkis.

    These all make great sense. I totally agree with them all, especially in this order.

    I do all of the above, plus one extra. I have this copy of Disneyland I've been building in 3D for a couple of years now. I'm never quite "done" with it. I fire up the computer the next day and go back and try to rearrange things so that it's more accurate. Oh, and sorting through pics, too.

    Disneyland is so easy to enter, and so hard to leave.

    Perhaps the most truthful answer is "I go home and sleep like a log, then wake up the next day feeling like I was back in basic training and just ran 30 miles."
