    On The Verge of MADNESS!

    Anyone else have that frantic, paniced feeling when they haven't visited the parks in such a long time? I know that there are some of us who won't be able to step unto Disney property for months, even years at a time so it must be ever harder for them. Right now I feel so jumpy every time Disneyland is mentioned or something happens to reminds me of the parks. I haven't been there since December and my last anxious attack was in a time span of three months which used to be the longest time that I haven't felt that sedative high.

    But this just tops it. I mean, when I was a wee young lassie, I would only go once a year. But ever since high school hit, it was multiple times, every season! And now, now I can't go till May! It may not seem long, but oh, it feels like an eternity! My heart beats fast, my pulse quickens and a loony look crosses my face every time someone, so help me, mentions the parks. By the time late April hits, it'll get worse. I'll be climbing on walls, laughing in a nervous manner as though I've had a caffeine surge.

    What can I say? it's like a drug! And an addiction takes such a long time to cure... I can practically smell the water of Pirates as I type this up. I'm going to loose it any moment now...

    Any of you out there can relate, please reply. Let's call this our DAA: Disneyland Addicts Anonymous. We all need support now and then, yes?

    It's like an itch that you have to scratch as soon as possible. I'm heading down this summer with my family but it can't come soon enough. Up until this point I haven't felt like I was missing much with all the ride rehabs. Now as Buzz and the Tiki Room have opened I'm starting to feel the itch again.

    I use to go twice a year but have not been back in four and looks like it will be another year before I go. Sometimes I get so depressed reading your posts and looking at the photos.

    Well, of course I am mad, that is why I am here! I love that I can get so much info here and feel like I am at the park. Reading these posts over the past few weeks are what have made me determined to get there this summer and see it all for myself!

    Haven't been since Spring of 2003, so yes, I understand what you mean.

    All I can do is get my fix via the internet, photos and what little I have on DVD and videotape.

    I so envy those who can just drop by after work for a churro, or who can make a breezy trip on any particular weekend to spend the day.

    When I get that way (which I am now) I start hitting the message boards hard and cruising the internet for all the Disneyland info I can get. It helps to deal with the pain.

    Last time I went was Nov. and I won't be able to go until my honeymoon in May so I'm starting to go a little DL crazy. I pay DL music none stop, day in and day out.

    I'm going mad regularly- yes.

    I went 15 years without going to DL- then I finally took my kids in Oct 2001. I was going to go in 2002 but I was sidelined by cancer. 2003 I was at DL in July. 2004 I hit WDW in July and DL in November. This year I was committed to only going to DL in Dec. but then things aligned themselves so I think I will be in WDW in June.

    I am going batty just waiting on it all to come together and get there.

    This is embarrassing- but I had never been to WDW til last year. Seen it on TV, read guides, gotten the planning videos- but never gone. I had bought AP's for the family- but again- the cancer thing got in the way. When I finally arrived on property last July I literally cried I was so happy. Rose (my daughter) still recalls how I started crying again on the second day when we went to Epcot.

    Yeah- I'm Disney loopy.

    Feel the need to go every month, since I've got an AP and I might not be in the state after this year, I want to use it for all its worth... evne if I have to pay $30 on a block out day.. I NEED MY FIX!! ....Going to that Disney's Character Liquidation Warehouse... or whatever its called.. is a slight way for my fix, only the shopping aspect though. And I listen to CDs with attraction tracks on them, as well as listening to the tracks on my computer. Must... get... monthly... fix..!!!

    ...I also need more shelf space now.

    My 1st trip to Disneyland was in 1988, then 1990 and finally in 2001. So I went about 11 years with out visiting DL and I live in California. Now I try to go about every 2 months or more since I have a AP. I go crazy, I miss everything about Disneyland. Sometimes I drive down to Anaheim just for a few hours and drive back home the same night

    I do!! I do!! I live close and have a pass, but don't get to go as much anymore! I went from going at least once a week or week and a half to maybe once a month!! And that time may get stretched out more! Yeah, I feel the madness.

    For me it is more overwhelming sadness. I am more homesick for Disneyland than I could have imagined. I know many of you understand, but most of my friends and family and even husband just don't understand how weird it is for me to be away from DL like this. Over the last ten years I either worked there or had an AP so I was there more times than I could count and I can't explain how weird it is for me to not be able to go when I want. I feel like a puppy who has been banned from the house and must stay outside in the cold all alone. Oh my gosh, that visual just made me more depressed!

    And that's why I love this board so much! IT feels great to be able to share my sickness with all you other crazies! Ha Ha, just kidding...sorta.
