    Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    My wife and I are constantly bombarded by my family and our friends due to our Disney-addiction.

    We go once/year (sometimes twice if money isn't tight) to one of the coasts for either park. We usually go to Orlando and spend a week or so to quench our Disney-induced thirsts.

    Do your fam and friends understand your disney addiction?
    Do NOT pull down on the safety bar, please...I will lower it for you...

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    Well my kids do, that's for sure. My 16 yr old daughter just told me the other day that she will require 2 things from any prospective husband: He must love cats and he must love Disneyland

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree




    P.S. The ex wasn't too keen on Disneyland. Just sayin'.
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    I am sure we all get the comments from people about why our vacations always include the Disney parks. Why do we want to keep going back to the same place? They just don't understand that each time I go to either Disneyland, and/or Disney World, I do it a little different. There's different hotels at Disney World, and new attractions are added annually. It's a great place to relax (if you are smart and don't go commando style). I am looking forward to my up and coming first time to Disney World at Christmastime trip.

    Instead of asking "where did that happen, where did you get that, or where did you see that" when I tell stories my friends now just say, "Oh was that at Disney?"

    Once some friends and I were walking down the street and we passed a group of girls (obviously going to party). One of them was wearing a birthday hat and shirt. We passed and I said happy birthday (typical park behavior for me. It not just the CMs who should get in the spirit). One of my friends turned to me and said "We'll that just creepy when your not in the park." I had to laugh at myself.

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    I get more questions than anything...
    "Why do you like Disney Parks?"
    "Is it worth the cost to go?"
    "What are your favorite things there?"
    "Is it just for kids or are there things for adults as well?"

    I hear questions like that more than people giving me a hard time about it.

    I think part of it is that so many of my family members, friends and co-workers also love Disney, so they understand why I do as well.

    My honey sometimes gives me grief, not because he dislikes it but because I sometimes push the envelope. (like going 3 times in one month)

    Other than that I get teased a lot at work, but I work with blue collar guys who don't hold back so I just fluff it off.

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    since most of my family and my husband's family enjoy theme parks, they don't think much of it. my mother in law comes down for two weeks a year thanks to a time share she owns and my husbands sisters and their kids come down during that time as well. my brother loves disney as does my mom. it's not just disney in our house, we have passes to universal and since my daughter works for busch, we get into their parks free as well.

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    My friends and family can't understand why we always want go to Disney when we go abroard for a holiday, they say there are so many lovely places you could go for a change that you have never been to but i say we love Disney and that's why we keep going back, simple as.
    Also, going back quite a few years ago when i was still at school i had grief from one of my teachers about going to Disney, he insisted it was for babies and when i got back he said in front of the whole class "back from cuckoo land i see" which made me really mad!

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    Yep, by my own family too...

    Most ever morning, I say how many day remaining (93, today) until we begin our next Disney vacation. And usually everday I play a Disney song from the computer, this las weekend we watch some home video of past trip, and I have pictures of our previous visits in slide-show on the computer now and then.

    So, I sort-of understand their concern, but I'm in-curable, so deal!!

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    Nah, I got it from my mom and fueled it more by SaveDisney.com and MiceAge/MiceChat through the years. The way I look at it is, I have to stay young somehow. My dad and brother have learned to accept it. They enjoy the parks, but not as much as my brother and I. As for my friends, the ones here leave it at what it is since it's become a part of me. My friends outside of Minnesota.. well, they're quite accepting since they have a place for Mickey in their hearts as well.

    That is my favorite one. Why are people so surprised that adults can have fun at the parks? My parents are big Disney fans too, but the rest of my family is not. My classmates joke around with me. They never have to ask where I am spending my vacations.

    Yep, all our friends ask when we will take an adult vacation. They have never been to Disneyland and have no plans to. Some people just dont get it! (Whats up with that)!

    Yeah, my friends make fun of me a bit.

    Especially when I have HSM and HSM2 songs stuck in my head. xD
    For certain you must be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was.

    Re: Do your family and friends make fun of you due to Disney love?

    Some of our friends and family members don't understand why my girlfriend and I are trying to go once a year to a Disney Park. They always think that Disney is just for kids. Normaly we are going to Disneyland Resort Paris (we are Europeans), but in January we are going to WDW.
