    How Sad is This?

    So, how sad is this? It's just under three YEARS until my next trip to Walt Disney World. My last trip there was 2006. I'm in serious withdrawl. I just spent over an hour on the Disney site just looking at photos of the hotels and rooms. I'm even a little bummed because my wife wants to take the Disney cruise, so she wants to plan only a week in the parks, and a 4 day cruise. I'm worried that a week won't be enough time in the resort.
    Anyway, your mission is to keep me entertained for the next three years with conversation, tips, discussion, happy stories, whatever about Walt Disney World.
    Since they say anticipation is part of the fun, I guess my only reasonable option is to fully embrace that anticipation, hence this thread.
    Keep me going, Mice Chat Friends!

    Re: How Sad is This?

    I only have to wait 34 days until my next trip down! Meals are planned, hotel set up, and we are going with a smaller group this time. I'll actually get to spend time with just my wife while walking around the parks. It will be almost like our Honeymoon 33 years ago!

    While I love going with my kids (26 and 24 now) and even with my in-laws, I'm looking forward to a special time with my wife this trip.

    Hang in there sbk1234, the fun will wait for yas!

    Re: How Sad is This?

    My last visit to Walt Disney World was in 1997. Granted, I'm in DL's backyard so I can get a steady Disney fix, but I really miss EPCOT Center and I am still kicking myself for never going to the Adventurer's Club!
    First visit to Walt Disney World was in 1985.

    It sounds like an awesome trip you're planning. As much as I love my kids, I'd love to go just with my wife and I for a second honeymoon. Disney without children is an entirely different type of trip.

    Re: How Sad is This?

    For some fun viewing/nostalgia, I always like to watch this program every once in a while for a little window to the past of WDW...Pleasure Island, Horizons, etc.



    Hopefully it doesn't make you miss it even more though! Apologies if so.

    Funny thing is even though I haven't seen this in years I was just thinking about it! Sure brought back memories! Thanks.

    Re: How Sad is This?

    SBK, I feel your pain. If misery loves company, come read my MiceChat blog called "Its a Quest." My first trip to Disneyland is set for June 2016 and I'm passing the time until then by blogging about the "journey before the journey."

    Maybe we can get through this interminable wait together... like strangers in a 2-hour-wait RSR queue!

    I just ordered my official maps from the Disney site. I guess that's something to do to help pass the time. Only about 2 years, 11 months to go!

    Not to rub it in or anything, but it's only two weeks to go for me

    I was in the CP in 2010 and I never fully recovered from the withdrawals. It's pretty brutal.

    Madogjoe, I will only forgive you if you post a trip report with lots and lots of photos. And if you lift your glass to me at some point in your trip and say, "This one is for Steven."

    What is the absolute earliest you can book reservations for WDW and the Disney Cruise?
