Haha - good plan!

We only like to go every 6-7 years so haven't yet got that, but people are just jealous that you've found your 'happy place'!! Too bad for them.

I like to go see U2 multiple times/tour and I get the 'U2 AGAIN?' reaction too... little do they know how unique I find each trip travelling to new cities - as I'm sure you find the same when you go back to Disney because there's always new magic!

To heck with 'em

What I tell people is if they went to Disney and didn't have a good time then they did something wrong.

I don't understand why some people want to go to the beach every year. To me that is incredibly boring. This is why we are free to make choices and should not be criticized for our personal preferences. I also find it to be in bad taste when people say things like that.

If you want to lay on beach, hike in the mountains, run around a city, go to the theater and experience the arts, stay at home and work on your house... Do it! I have met some really toxic people in the past few years and its disgusting. I don't know but I've met a lot if jealous, negative, condescending people. I like the different experiences we all have, and love passion people have for things- it's often contagious!

We actually experienced Disney haters while we were in line at one of the attractions. I could tell they were miserable, so I started chatting with them, maybe I could give a tip or something to make their day better. Nope, Instead I got an earful of how miserable and expensive and crowded and . . . . It was November it was not even hot. But then I watched then interact with their kids . No wonder they were miserable. To each their own.

Everyone has told me we have lost our minds going to WDW this year, because I just had a baby in December. We went last year and it was the first time for my DH and then 3 year old DS. It was so magical! So, I will be strapping my little one into the BECO carrier and going back to experience the magic. I have zero expectations other than to spend time with my family in one of the happiest places ever. Seriously, watching the DH and DS do some cool stuff together and sitting on a park bench with the little man, all while drinking a frozen lemonade is my kind of heaven.

I get this from my parents-- Don't you think you need to enrich your kids so they know there is more to the world than Disney?

Absolutely!! Also, Disney was our honeymoon 13 years ago, so each time we go we re-live it a bit (even with kids in tow). I always tell the honeymooners I see that it's a great start!

I prefer Disney and I think you definitely get what you pay for. Not to mention I have zero desire of going on a cruise unless it's a Disney cruise.

But, you just gotta do what gives you joy, and if Disney gives you joy, then that's where you need to go!
ITA! The only cruises we have been on were Disney- I'm afraid to try anything else--

I just said that this trip! In fact, my Dad said, y'all might be better off just to move there when he heard of our trip last week that we decided to go on, planned, packed and hit the road in less than 2 hours~

Not hardly. But we decided a few years back that our kids will never be little again.
If we wait until we are debt free, and we've renovated our house, etc. , etc., we'll never go.
Besides, I have 8 kids. It is not cheap to go ANYWHERE with 8 kids.
THIS! ITA!! We do Disney cheap, so with our 3 kids it would cost MORE to do just about anything . . .


OP, just know you are not alone.

My brother goes on 3 to 4 cruises a year and I always wonder what he sees in cruises. You couldn't pay me to go on one. We got to DW 4 times a year and be says the same thing.

Oh my, if you ever do consider a cruise, be sure it's DCL! Before, WDW was my happy place but now it's on a Disney ship. In 2012 I was on all 4 ships. We've tried 2 other cruise lines and have decided DCL is so unique & it fits like glove. It's everything we love about Disney but in a very relaxed atmosphere & with much more character interaction. On the last night there's a big party called Til We Meet Again with lots of characters. In 30 mins I got pictures with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Chip/Dale, Donald, & Snow White.
The service is just over the top. For dinner, our table is reserved for us with smiling servers calling us by name and asking how was our day. They cut my son's meat & crack his lobster. If he asks for ketchup, they put it on a side plate in the shape of a Mickey head.

For me, it's just heavenly. It makes the parks feel like hard labor. This summer will be DCL # 14.

Yes, coworkers make comments but many of them either go NO WHERE or just keep going back to the shore. We spent last weekend at Universal Studios and I only mentioned to a couple people at work. Most didn't even know we went anywhere. It's better that way. I don't comment on their expensive boots & purses so they can keep their "traveling again?" comments to themselves too. I have one coworker who travels often, usually international, and gets a lot of negative comments. So she & I confide in each other when we're excited about a newly booked trip & have the urge to share the good news.

After around 20 trips to WDW, we felt like we needed to expand our travels a little and have found national parks to be great places to visit between cruises & WDW visits. (Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Yosemite, etc.)
It's all good. Life is short; do what makes you happy.

I solved this problem but taking my Disney passion and made it my career! I opened my own travel agency that specializes in all things Disney. Now if someone says" you are going again" I just say "its work!"

There are groups of families here in my small town that go to Mexico every year. All they do is get crazy drunk and act silly the whole time they are there. To each their own I guess, I don't understand the joy in it haha. I'd much rather be taking a trip to WDW! But I would never criticize them for their choices. I don't understand why anyone would need to say anything to you- it's your money and your choice!

Same here Although sometimes when i tell people we are going again i feel like i have to justify the fact that we ALL love it ... the adults AND the kids. Whatever ... they ar just jealous that we have all found a place we love to go to!
