    I had a poster made up today of WDW From Space... when I showed my Mum she went :rolleyes: and walked off.

    Does your family think you go too far with your Disney obsession?

    I think my sister sometimes thinks I'm nuts... but she understands for the most part. She always rolls her eyes when I tell her about a dream I had, for example. I don't usually tell my parents about stuff like that... because I don't think they understand as much as my sister.

    My family completely understands (because, all but my dad, are fanatics too)

    People at work on the other hand...
    Friends on the other hand...

    My family understands because they all love Disneyland, except my dad and my brother is a closet fan.
    Half my friends think I'm weird and the other half bask in the fun of it. :)
    My friend recently turned 24 and had a Disney theme party. Got to love it.

    The only people in my family who share my enthusiasm for Disney are my daughters, but then, I've raised them correctly. :D

    Friends, family, fiancée... I'm shunned by all. I have to suffer through my withdrawals alone. :cry:

    How about an out of work MSW clinical therapist? I know one that works cheap, and I don't think you are nuts. (well mabye a little, but that is ok.) :p

    My hubby understands, our obessesion is a bond between us. Our DD is a WDW and Disney expert and loves all things Disney. (Baby is too young, but she will learn.)

    Our familes don't understand it, but they accept it. My niece went with us last year and she is now a nut too. Hubbies family is a bit more understanding, but we are fanatics of the group.

    Friends still think we are crazy. I found some good friends who I managed to get hooked by taking them with us last trip. They are going back with us in March 2005, but they do think we are nuts. However they fully appericate all of our experince and knowlage, it makes their trip eaiser and more fun. We like being WDW tour guides.

    Somehow after we joined DVC people seem to understand why we go so much now. Like having a timeshare investment justifys how often we go and why we love it so much

    My family totally understands. My mom loves Disney just as much as I do. My aunt is a fan who tries to act like she's not a fan but she doesn't hide it too well.

    My friends actually tease me about all the Disney shirts I have. They claim I'm regressing back to my childhood. But that's not the case, Disney just keeps up with my age!
