It's a slow time for breaking news and it sort of feels like we're all getting desperate for thread ideas around here
I'm sure this thread had popped up several times here and there, but it hasnt for a while, from what I've seen, so let's get to it. What is the extent of your Disneyland obsession? How big is your colleciton?
How often do you visit Disneyland? How often do you frequent Disneyland message boards, websites, etc? How many Disney-related books doown? Do you pin trade or collect pressed pennies?

Do you have frequent dreams about visiting Disneyland or other Disney themeparks?
