Thanks God there are more like me out there. Hey we should have a secret handshake.

I'm already talking about my next trip which is a little less then a year away. As soon as I get back my wife and daughter take a bet on how long it will take before I start making plans for the next trip.

I'm in too. WDW is a way of life. I like to spend time dreaming about moving to Celebration so that we could go to WDW almost every day. That would just rule. If I ever win the lottery, that is so my plan.

You can count me in. Another thing that might be added is "Do you have any Character ties to wear" I have a Donald Duck tie, Mickey and Goofy Golf Tie, and a Tigger golf tie.

My wife liked Disney before, but she absolutely loves it now, as our DD 2 saw Mickey for the first time this year, at Disneyland and WDW, and the looks in both of their eyes is truly magical!! My wife keeps asking me which parks, if not all, are we doing at WDW in 2008!!!

Grumpy's Gas & Grease Garage Baseball Cap

I need to find another baseball cap with the great embroidered Grumpy's Gas & Grease logo on the front of it. This baseball cap was on sale at Grumpy's Service Station in California Adventure. Unfortunately, I only purchased one white baseball cap with a blue bill while we were at Disneyland and California Adventure last August. After wearing the cap so much, I really need to purchase at least two more just like it. Can anyone help in my quest to locate two more caps?

I will be at WDW in 30 days. I'll be on the look out for the baseball cap when I am there! I am thinking they might have it at MGM Studios but I am not sure on that.

Me too Disney Fanatic. It helps to know, there are other guys like us. My wife likes it and my daughter got the bug, but I'm even more fanatical then my 13 year old.

Every year I have to force my wife to get on board when it comes to going there. It makes it tough when you have to fight for it.

Some guys I know think it's a chore to go. On my last trip, there was a guy sitting on the floor in the corner at a gift shop in Main Street looking misreable. He was on his cell phone talking to someone and these were his exact words "I'm in Disney Hell".

So I always tell my wife and daughter you guys are lucky I love it so much because some dads think they are doing their family a big favor by going once every 10 years.

Proud to be a Disney Nut. Let our Disney Flag Fly.

I'd like to join! Well I fit 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18 & 22. We've been going since 86', and now we are empty nesters and still going! I currently have two trips planned, one for this Christmas with all of the family going, and one in June as "My Special Retirement" trip to DL & WDW over a 3 week period! I love doing all the planning, I just get goofy bumps all over. My wife just shakes her head when I start walling down Main Street and I start becoming a little kid again. It is trully a magical place for me.

As a grandparent, I've already taken my 4yo DGS twice to WDW and gotten him addicted to it! What can I say.

I'm 43 and the same as you. I do all the planning while my wife just starts rolling her eyes. Main Street is very magical for me also. I have a tradition on the first day of every trip and I have to go to Main Street and just have a moment to myself to take it all in. It really is amazing to me and almost spiritual.

Another Disney Dad here

Thank God, I am not the only one. I, like others here, get the "head shake" from DW when I start talking about Disney.

I work offshore, so that gives me lots of time to do the planning during the day while everyone else is at work/school.

I too do 1,2,4,5,12 and a few others.

May I join in this ELITE club. We have DD7(will be 8 on our trip in Jan) and DD16. DD16 has never been and DD7 & DW went this past Jan 07 for the first time. I had been 4 times before begining in 72 - 84 or 85. DW is not hooked,yet, but we did become DVC members in March

I like the idea of a secret hand shake. Don't know if this would be an add-on to the list but I have a Disney background on my laptop with a count down calender on it(My co-workers really give me a hard time about it)... They just don't understand.

Lovin the "Magic"
