    Default You know you're addicted to WDW when...

    Our family went camping last night with some other families from our church. There was of course, a campfire. We hung out, made S'mores, etc, etc. Typical camping stuff.

    This morning, when I got up, I put my clothes on that I had worn yesterday. When I grabbed them to put them on, the first thought that popped in my head *wasn't* "Hey, these smell like smoke!" It was, "Hey, these smell like that part of Spaceship Earth where they're depicting Rome burning!"

    How about the rest of you? Go!

    When you can relate everything to something at WDW. For example: Someone at work was talking about a home theatre system and I told him about the one in the Home of the Future at Epcot. No matter what anyone talks about I can find a way to relate it to WDW. It's gotten to the point where everyone just expects it

    There is building on the freeway we travel occasionally and evertime I see it, I remark on it being just like Wilderness Lodge.

    we buy a certain sunblock for the kids that we first bought when we went to blizzard beach. When I spray it now I still say it "smells like blizzard beach" or "something smells like blizzard beach." Also whenever we see local fireworks (Canada Day, New Years, whatever) either myself of DW will say "wishes" like we're watching wishes and listening to the audio that they play. addicted, yeah just a little

    When you find "hidden Mickeys" everywhere you go.

    I too am often reminded by various things of the smell of Rome burning in SE.

    Uh, when you are supposed to be giving a business oriented speech for a communication training at work (and you work at a very large company that makes consumer products) and what you discuss is the "fantasmic awesomeness" that is the past, present and future of WDW. People just look at me and smile, but I know somewhere out in the audience is someone that has just assimilated to the Borg!

    Whenever I take the kids out to eat, I ask them when Winnie the Pooh comes around to sign autographs.
    When the local pool was open late, I told the kids it was extra magic hours.
    And at the local amusement park, I asked the tram driver if it was the right tram for epcot.

    Hey, we'll also be there from Oct 2 -9th! If you see an entire family of five wearing all Virginia Tech (VT) apparel, with a bald Dad, that will be me! We could also be wearing our "I Survived Spaceship Earth", "I Survived the Hall of Presidents", or "I Survived It's A Small World" shirts.

    Hey, and we'll even be staying at POR, too! We'll be having a family reunion. 14 people. LOTS of little girls. My poor DS13 is the only boy in the group. Although we'll be wearing VT apparel, the other family are Univ. of Virginia people...so you may see a lot of U.Va gear as well. Maybe at the same time. Like a family feud.

    Hahaha, so do I. Actually there are many scents that have been reminding me of Disney lately. I was at a Phillies game the other day and while walking past one of the concessions it suddenly smelled like the Main Street bakery.

    OK...let's see...
    sittin here posting on Intercot,after returning from my Disney bathroom, while listening to "Mouse House Radio" on live 365, occasionally glancing up to see my 4 parks hanging on the wall, next to my completely stuffed Disney memorabila cabinet, and counting down the days (61) til we head down to the World again.
    Whew! I think that just about covers it!
