    Ok I'll be the first one to admit it... yes. In between trips, depending on the timing between them, I often end up a little burned out and need a break from all things Disney. Ok, maybe not all things... but I occasionally go a week or two not listening to the podcasts or not hitting these forums (although this time it was not purposely). Just a few times a year I take a little break. It's good for me. It keeps me excited about Disney. Without it I fear I'd lose some of the desire I have to be constantly "in it".
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I find my self getting burned out if I'm there on a long trip, seven days. But if I'm there for a four or five day, not at all. It's usualy the fact that I'm staying in Disney with out a car and can't escape it. But this year were staying of property and have a car, so we'll see?

    I get burned out on Disney blogs, websites, podcasts, etc. But I don't get burned out on going to the Theme Parks....even when we go on a 12 day trip

    Like Jenn, my interest in Disney usually subsides a wee bit after a recent WDW vacation. I'll go a week or two, maybe a month without being an avid listener of every podcast. Usually though in about two to three months, I'm jonesing again for Disney World. I must say the current economy and fuel prices are really stemming any ability I have to get down there for at least the next year.

    I would really like to go in October 2009 in order to attend a MNSSHP. It's so far out though that I'm going to need the podcasts and magazines to tamp down the Disney-itch.

Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams and the hard facts that have created America...with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

    Ditto. In fact, I've actually spent time in the parks alone (happily) because people I'm with get sick of being there. Go figure.

    I was going to say yes, because after my recent company, I just couldn't have gone to another park another day. On further contemplation, I don't think I was burned out on Disney - I was just plain BURNED OUT! I slept most of the day that they left.

    In December 2006, it was the closest I have ever been to burn out. But it was because my family wasn't with me. I think I was homesick for them and wanted them to experience it. That could explain why I started planning a trip once I got back!

    So truly burned out, not yet.

    I could think of a few other reasons, Gae! Amazing how a sour puss can ruin (or try to, anyway) a trip!

    I think that you've hit exactly how I tend to feel, too. It is a lot of work being the chief planner/packer/tour guide/problem solver/make-sure-everyone's-happy person/pixie-dust spreader/pack mule for a Disney trip - or anywhere else for that matter. When I get home, I don't want to do ANYTHING for a few days. Probably why I never get to write trip reports.
