    Post Disney World Trip Depression...

    I dont mean clinical depression but being down about not being there. It's been 12 years since I had been to Disney I finally made it back on 5/20/05-5/29/05 and I must say that it was one of the best experiences I have been on. When I got back to reality I find that I am down about not being there. It's getting better every day but I feel like I wish I lived there....anyone else have similar experiences when they return from a trip to WDW?

    Its been forever since I've been there too....when ppl ask what WDW is like I tell them it makes local amusement parks look like backyard carnivals....Years later I still feel like that when I got to local stuff...tho a few of the parks near me make carnivals look huge...lol (old parks and very small)
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    I know exactly what you mean. I get depressed , only for a short time, when I think about our last trip, July of 2003. I am very lucky that I am a scrapbooker, though, because I am still working on that trip. Taking my time on it seems to keep the memories alive .

    This sounds so shallow and pathetic, but I haven't been since October 2003, and am killing myself over it! I'd considered an 'emergency' trip before the lagoon in Fantasyland bit the dust, but that was just a spur-of-the-moment thing, never seriously considered going through with it. I fight the 'depression' by listening to WDW audio and music whenever I need a fix.

    Weekends are great for those trips down memory Main St. U.S.A. lane. I've been known to watch DVD after DVD.

    I fight off the most extreme bouts of depression with thoughts of old school Disney and how it used to be... oh wait, that's what causes it..

    This feeling is completely normal! You plan and you plan and you plan...then you go and have a FABULOUS time and then...your home! It's so funny how exciting it is to count down the days until you get there, but then when it's over....gloom and doom. I just try to focus on our next trip and start planning all over again! No matter how long the time lapse will be between the two trips! Plus, if you can keep Disney stuff going it doesn't make it so bad. This site is great for that! There is always somebody going or just coming back and it's fun to share in their joy, excitement and stories!!!

    I have it (depression) already and I havent been on my trip yet!!! I'm just depressed because I made a pact w. the BF that next year he could choose the vacation spot and he choose Vegas. It's no Disney trip to me!!! Maybe I can talk him into taking a little ride to DL for a few days!!

    Maybe I should snickerdoodle my way back into a better mood!!!

    We got back to reality on 5/29/05 and I'm starting to feel better now. We are starting to plan our next trip which is a Carnival cruise... I'm a Disney Fanatic now and I don't want to go on a cruise. Now I have to convince people to go back to Disney and not a cruise.
