Five Signs You've Entered Disney Withdrawal

15 months. That's how long it's been since I last set foot inside Disneyland. For some people that might not seem like a very long time, and for others it might seem like nowhere near long enough, but for our family it's been a ridiculously long stretch. In fact, despite our efforts to keep a lid on it, I'm pretty sure that our family has now entered full fledged Disney withdrawal. 

How do you know if you're in Disney withdrawal? There are some signs...

#1 - Any trip down the stairs is cause to practice your Splash Mountain poses (and you kind of hope somebody throws water on you at the bottom).

Oh great...the "thinker" pose has been passed down...

#2 - When having a conversation with your wife, your kids are only allowed to interrupt if they have a Fastpass.

Umm...I think you're supposed to use these, not bring them home.

#3 - You start wearing rather unusual sleepwear...

Sure...but if I try and kiss her, I get slapped.

#4 - During power failures, instead of finding a flashlight you put the Space Mountain music on your iPod.

50/50 whether they're loading or it's broken down again...

#5 - At 9:30 every night you sit out on your front lawn and wait for the fireworks to go off over you neighbors house.

This post is a part of Wordless Wednesday over at Focused on the Magic. If you didn't get here from there, you should really head on over and check out some of the fantastic people that hang out there on Wednesdays. Most of them probably have neighbors with larger pyrotechnic budgets than ours do. Lucky them.
