|PCD - Planning compulsive disorder!|
There is something about these trips that gets right under your skin, in a good way of course! Something that draws you back and it's something worth waiting for...but how do you keep that magic alive when you have 4-digit countdown? Here's a few of the things I do that keep me going!
The Disney community is immense, larger than I could have ever believed. I'm a member on several active forums and daily answer planning questions from to-be travellers to Walt Disney World, from dining to itinerary suggestions, ride restrictions and 'help! I'm drowning in planning' pleas. Sharing my knowledge, ideas, touring plans etc rekindle all the feelings I have when it comes to planning my own trips and keeps my own pot of pixie dust pretty full! Another popular feature on most forums are the trip reports people post up and through these, I probably travel to Orlando in my mind at least twice a month! These trip reports are a great way to get ideas for your next trip, especially dining options!

Ok, this might be more for the 'behind the scenes' fans out there, those of us who like to know the nuts and bolts of what makes the world of Walt Disney World go round. There are some wonderfully crafted booked out there, rich in Disney history, not forgetting some well respected autobiographies on Walt Disney himself (An American Original by Bob Thomas is one of my favourites and has the backing of the Disney family, including a foreword by Diane Disney). Spinning Disneys World by Charles Ridgeway tells the amazing story of the Florida Project from a PR point of view, including the building and opening of Disneyland Paris!
I'll be back with some more creative ways to keep the magic alive later on!
How do you keep the magic alive between trips?
Until next time,
