    Diagnosis

    Symptoms: After the third or fourth day at WDW I am ready to leave the crowds and Disney, but after a few days I miss the place and want to be back at WDW. Can any one give me a diagnosis?

    Human contact exhaustion?

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    Dear Prickle:

    Boy you are like my extended family. 4 nights and they are on a plane home day 5. But they go more frequently than we do. Over Stimulation Disorder! OSD followed up by Disney Withdrawal Syndrome. DWS

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Gabe

    I personally could go 10 days straight to the parks and be happy haha, but you sound like you need to book a longer trip with lots of relaxation/hotel room/tv watching/nap days in between!

    I'd shoot for more park days and less hours spent in the parks each day.

    Sounds like my family. If we go during off peak times and take afternoon breaks we're so much happier.Sometimes a boat ride or swim can make a huge difference. My DH doesn't like to stay more than 3-4 days. I on the other hand would love 2 wks.

    I concur with your prescription for this malady. I love the place, when we go down we usually say in the Grand Floridian or Beach Club ( though they are real budget stretchers!). But we spend more time relaxing in the resort than the parks.

    Also, the Magic Kingdom can present a real crush of bodies, so switching it up and going to the studios or Animal Kingdom where there are fewer people can help. And rather than trying to take in all of the parks in just a few days, try to do only a little bit of them...mad dashes all over the parks will wear you down real quick.

    DIAGNOSIS: overstimulated go-til-you-drop sickness

    THERAPY: sleep late day 3, before it hits and do downtown Disney or, if it's your thing, just swim in the pool til late afternoon, or take the whole day off

    You'll be all the better the next day.
