    I'm so glad you're doing well.

    Whenever I get floated over to Durango Jail (like I did today), it smells like Pirates of the Caribbean in the elevator room. I spent a few minutes today trying to figure out where the water with bromine in it is. They have everything locked up tight though. One day, I'll find it.

    When you have dreams of being at Disney and booking your next Disney holiday while there.

    Last night I dreamt that me, my wife, parents and sister were in Disney World, we had just finished our second day in the parks (think it was Epcot or a water park, still early in the vacation though) and had gone back to the room. While there my Dad decided to book ANOTHER Disney holiday for 2 years time because there was a good deal on. I guess it would have helped the withdrawal symptoms at the end of the current trip!

    You know you're addicted to WDW when... the TV in your living room is set to play a loop of YouTube videos of the WDW Resort TV channel.

    You know the one that is primarily a blue screen that shows park icons that slide by with park hours and events by park with Disney instrumental music in the background

    When the white noise you play in your office at work is the a 12-hour loop of "Sounds of Disneyland."

    Whenever I go to a city with a Disney store (in the UK for me usually Birmingham and London, occasionally Liverpool, also now a small one has appeared one town away in Shrewsbury) I am obliged to go in. Even if I don't buy anything I am there to soak up the Disney atmosphere for 20 minutes.

    Last time I did this was on a weekend trip to London a week ago. Just as I walked in I noticed the music was familiar but not from a movie... a few seconds later I suddenly realised it was Grim Grinning Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion. Cue me excitedly trying to tell my wife (who has not yet been to WDW) and trying and failing to record it to send to my family on my phone.

    I do this, but I do it on my Google Home Hub. We especially love to do this on weekend mornings when we're making/eating breakfast or cleaning up around the house. We can just walk into the kitchen and say, "Hey Google, play Walt Disney World Today on YouTube", and it comes up with the resort TV channel. Love it.

    I just bought an Amazon Echo Show 5 (the small version) and tried it to see if it could do it. It can, although it's a little different than the Google Home version. It opens a browser and pulls it up, so it's not full-screen like it is on the Google Home. But it sounds the same!

    Unfortunately, my dreams (when we are at home) are quite the opposite. I have a recurring dream where we are at Disney World and may have been for a few days, but have not done anything (for whatever reason). The dream starts on the last day and we are trying to get on our favorite rides before we leave.

    This recurring dream is probably a sure sign that I am addicted! I have had it enough in some form or other that I can often recognize it as a dream and then either wake myself up or have fun with it.

    There are a lot of critters that live in this jail. One day, I put a cockroach outside. Another day, I rescued a bat. Last night, a rat came up to my foot before running away. (Which was ironic, since we had just watched Ratatouille at home the night before). My coworker was freaking out about the rat coming so close to me. I said "What? I've always been good with animals."
    She replied "Ok Disney princess." I might be addicted to Disney. :P

    I have had dreams like that, I put it down to worrying about getting everything done. The dreams involve being a couple of days in, usually an evening and realising we have done basically nothing with that time.

    I think it's because we can only go every few years because of time, cost and distance - so we know we have to make every day count!
