My buddy is at WDW now and I'm getting so jealous reading his updates on FB. "At Soarin'" " Eating at O'hana" etc.....
I think I might delete him for a week...lol

but seriously, does anyone else get jealous when your friends are there? I mean I'm happy for them, and I'll be there in 73 days, but right now I am so jealous.

I only live an hour away and go at least once a month and "I" get jealous!! lol.

There's something about that magic ;)

Normally I may get a little jealous when someone else is there.

I don't think I would if I was so close to a trip.

Remember, his trip will be long over when your is just beginning

It can be so hard. I actually love hearing about other people's trips to WDW. But, I do get this gut-deep, homesickness feeling when I do. Unless we have a trip coming soon, then it just gets me more excited to get there. :mickey:

I am jealous of everyone going, had to cancel my last 3 trips due health or finances. But at least I can come to intercot and get my Disney fix. :mickey:

I actually get excited when someone is going to my favorite place on earth. I want them to love it as much as I do.

My friend just returned today from a week at WDW and I texted her everyday to see what park she was going to/where she was eating...and I was incredibly jealous! 81 days can't come soon enough!

don't get me wrong, I'm happy for them....but I just can't help myself.

I get more jealous when i'm leaving whatever resort i'm staying in and I see other's checking in.... I can't help but think (kiddingly), "I hope it rains" LOL

Funny timing on this topic, my friend is there now and we have been texting back and forth. He hardly goes and I go as much as possible so he is asking all these questions. So yes I am jealous but glad to help out someone to have a great trip. Kind of a virtual vacation for me.

LOL! Oh yes! That's so hard. Dragging your luggage out while others are dragging theirs in. I don't (consciously) wish rain on them, but I desperately wish we were just checking in instead of checking out.

We always look at the people waiting for the Disney Magical Express Bus when we are pulling in at the start of our vacation and comment that they are sitting in the "sad seats".

And then all too soon, we are lamenting about having to sit in the sad seats..... :(

HATE THE SAD SEATS!!!!!!

Not jealous, exactly. Wistful sometimes, because I would like to be there and be with my friends and family. But I'm happy for them.

My husband was just at WDW as part of a business trip and a couple of the guys he was with said they had to stop sending pictures to their spouses because they were getting so jealous. I can't relate to that. Maybe it's because my husband has always been supportive of my annual (or sometimes more often) trips to Disneyland or WDW with friends, so I certainly don't begrudge him having a good time there. Plus, the pictures he took were mainly for me, lol!

Sad Seats! That's a good one.

I'm just glad that the PVBs (post-vacation blues) are offset by PVA (pre-vacation anticipation).

I'm lucky because not too many people are fortunate enough to go to Disney and are certainly not Disney freaks like my family is...which means we go once every year and the people that do post go maybe at most every other year. I'm just lucky I can go at all and experience the magic of Disney.

Never, ever..... we visit usually 4 or five time a year so its neat to read whats old, new, changing shut down etc.

Not at all. By living vicariously thorough them and getting their trip reports, it makes me feel like I'm there. :number1:

DBF and I probably won't go for another few years (after having APs for two years), but I still read the boards, websites, and blogs. Honestly, it helps me get scratch the "Disney-itch." :mickey:

Oh yes. Haven't been for over 2 yrs. And we also feel sorry for those leaving when we arrive.

I agree, I often feel bad for those leaving as we are checking in, but I quickly get over that.

Of course! I've had a month of intense jealousy. Last week, the organist at my church was there, posting like crazy. The week before, one of my old school buddies was there and didn't post a thing, which totally made me mad! The week before that, a person I met through Intercot (Chickee) was there for a week, and she posted a ton of those "checked into..." posts that make you want to go right now. AND the week before that, a family we met on the bus from AKL to Epcot one day was there - and he's a super photo buff so there were great photos everyday.

I sit at my screen thinking, "I just get to do Disneyland this year because it's too expensive to fly". Yes, GREEN with envy. That's when it's hard to follow that last commandment - Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's trip to Disney World.

This made me laugh. I hope you don't mind if I steal this for a post.

Jealous? Not really, but I do get wistful knowing that I either do not have a trip planned or am too far away from it.....(Yes, even one day away is too long!! LOL)

my buddy got home yesterday so I can now start rubbing it in that I will be there in 65 days.

In a word, yes.

Especially when they post food photos! But it is good to see their happy faces! It is all bearable when I have a trip planned in the future! :magic:

Once every few years is good for us. If we couldn't get there at least every three to four years then we might be jealous. Otherwise I always "like" my friends' Disney posts.
