Avoiding Disney Burnout

Let me start by saying that I have never experienced Disney burn out. However I was on pinterest this morning and saw an article that's title was talking about it. Have you ever experiences Disney burnout? Does you significant other experience Disney burn out? I can see how this is an issue for some people. I don't understand it, but I can see it.

What advice do you have to avoid such a thing?

Always doing something different!

We stay at different resorts although I could stay at AKL every single time. I just love it there.

We don't have an arrival day ritual anymore, use to always be the Springs but now it is a free for all. Sometimes it is a park, sometimes it is the resort, sometimes it is the SPrings.

We do our very best not to go to restaurants we have been tom, there is always always at least 2 new ones a trip.

New experiences each timehelp too. I am actually planning in my head a trip with no parks. I want to check out more of the resorts and their offerings!!! I want to do the Boardwalk Crawl too LOL

Like JMed we try to mix it up and rotate what we do as much as possible. And since we're APs now we take a much more relaxed approach to park visits.

And I think with all the new stuff coming in 2019 that will help. And single day trips or 2-3 day trips seem to be a little less overwhelming when one of us isn't feeling it. Whoever that might be... eek

I always try and switch things up to. I usually try to do at least 5 new things on each trip. Next week it's more like 5 new things a day!

I could not agree more with the thought of mixing everything up. I am guessing that most of us travel with the same person or people each time we visit the world. With those two things in mind, I bet one of us makes the plans, all the time. I suggest moving the planning to the other person. Once a time frame is agreed to, hand over the reigns to our significant non-planning other. Let them go wild.

My family is the exception to this rule. I go every trip and the rest of the family dukes it out to be my companion. It's like the hunger games around here while they try to figure out who will be the victor. laugh

We are the exception to the mixing it up. We tend to stay in one of the same few resorts, and tend to eat at our favorite restaurants. We do sometimes try one or two new places but rarely do they compare to our favorites. When it is the just the two of us on a trip we do not plan our days. We do make make ADR's and FP for most of the days but as often as not we will change our plans for the day when we get up. It works for us, so far no burn out in sight!

This exactly. We stay at a new resort and eat at new places (with some old favorites) mixed in every time. I went to Disney 5 times (a total of 41 days eek ) and I cried when we left Saturday because it will be our last trip on our annual pass and we're 260+ days from our next trip. No such thing as a Disney burnout for me!
