Returning home after a Disney World vacation is often a letdown. You worked so hard to plan the trip, you had a fabulous time, now you’re exhausted, and people have stopped telling you to have a Magical Day. You’re not at Disney anymore, Mickey.
How to help make the blues go away…
One of the things I like to do is look back over my pictures and the ones on the Disney Photopass. I usually change my screensaver on my computer to a photo from my most recent trip. It makes me smile to see my family at the Polynesian or another magical place and recall the great time we had together. I also change the screensaver on my cell phone and every time it rings I have a Disney memory. When I get really organized I’ll put those photos together in an album. I’ll let you know when that happens.
Another thing I like to do is listen to my favorite podcast, WDWToday. These are my Disney friends and they love Disney World as much as I do. (They don’t know they’re my friends, but it works for me.) On the WDW Today podcast, they discuss only Disney related topics. They are a very friendly and informative group. With my iPod in tow, I walk around my neighborhood and listen to them chat and reminisce. Their conversations take me back to the fun I had at Walt Disney World — that brings me great joy. I suggest listening to WDW Today whenever you can. They record 3 shows weekly that are about 20 minutes long, so you can always get a Disney pick me up from them.
Even though it may be a while until your next trip, there are lots of ways to keep the memories alive.
