    I find it equally comforting and heartbreaking to listen to park music when I don't even have a trip booked. LOL It's like I'm desperate to find that connection but listening to it goes way beyond just painting a mental picture, it actually takes you there, to the sights, smells, sounds, and overall atmosphere that is, frankly, like nothing else I've ever experienced. I can't wait to book the next trip, but until then I'm just going through some serious withdrawal!

    That's not quite as pathetic as watching other peoples' home videos on YouTube... living vicariously through their trips to WDW.

    When I am at work, I have the Soarin' ride song, Tomorrowland area music, SM Star tunnel music, and the Electric Main Street Parade songs on my iPod & headphones, and play them when I am working. I also find when I am sitting in traffic, playing the Star Tunnel music soothes and calms me.

    I tend to start listening to Disney channels when I have a trip planned and yearn to go.

    God, I haven't been on the Monorail since I was my son's age! :( I am thinking of driving to MK this time just to let my children experience it for the first time!

    I brought home Basin Mickey soaps. Such a lovely reminder of my day at the Grand Floridian where I was leisurely shopping and enjoying the day :). :inlove:

    I constantly watch other people's trip videos on youtube lol! I have 3 years worth of our own family Disney trip videos that I watch when I'm missing it too! It's super helpful to plan upcoming trips too!

    My God, out of pure desperation I found myself watching a video of the terminal at Philadelphia Intl Airport! :p It's always so exciting to be there - at the beginning of the trip! But when it's over, it's my least favorite place in the world. lol

    I live in Dallas, and have a brother that lives in Long Beach, not far from Disneyland. He's famous for calling me and playing the "guess where I am" game!

    I've been listening to Disneyland/World soundtracks for two days. I'm 91 days out and wondering if it is too early to put together a preliminary packing list lol!!
