I think that I am jealous. I like reading trip reports. I really do. I read a lot of them. As the MiceChat community gets larger, and larger, there are more and more trip reports. Some MiceChatters are even clever enough to post them, while they are still on their trips.
People enjoying a Disney Trip are returning home, and sorting through their photos, and they are telling us all about their trips. Everyone does it differently. They are all unique to the MiceChatter that has decided to post one.
So why is it, that as I sit here in Chicago, I feel left out? I don't live close enough to go very often. I am happy if I can make a yearly trip. So reading about the newest stuff is really a plus. MiceChatters are great for posting the new stuff. Sometimes we get to see things before it has even officially open.
There are many MiceChatters that I have never met, and yet, I know what they look like because they pop up a lot in trip reports. If someone has included a MiceChat Sunday Meet in their trip report, you are sure to see many MiceChatters that you have perhaps shared a post with. MiceChatters are not shy about taking pictures of their "significant others" and their children. We get to read about their wishes and their dreams, and whether or not they were realized on their trips.
I don't even mind too much when Disneyland and Disney World are compared in a trip report. I have been both places, and I know what I like. People are entitled to their opinions, and MiceChat is a great place to share these opinions with us all.
I read about people's plans to meet up at Disneyland, and Disney World, and sometimes I even read about a plan gone awry, and how MiceChatters didn't find each other.
So here I sit in Chicago. I read trip reports. I admit, I am definitely jealous. I want to be there. I want to be "in" more trip reports. I want people to be reading about me having a good time, rather than sitting here in Chicago, enjoying. Yes, enjoying, all the wonderful, varied, chatty, marvelous trip reports that are posted here each day at MiceChat.
