Post Trip Disappointment and Finding a way to fix it.

With a lot of help from people in this group, I planned a (edited) Trip. Previously I had only been to WDW with my husband and it is our favorite place on this planet.

I will not bore you with exhausting details. The only reason I got to do anything I actually wanted to do was due to the fact that I made all the plans so I built in things I wanted to do.

I have never EVER wanted to leave WDW in my life like I did during that trip.

Once I got home I went through several months of Disney avoidance. Everything I saw reminded me of that trip. Reading people's trip reports or seeing scrapbook page layouts. Horrid.

Finally over labor day, I shed the last of my disappointment thanks to some great friends and some awesome WDW fan meet ups.

How does only handle a selfish person like that? I just feel so super emo about it. I thought coming back out here would help me reconnect with Disney Lovers like myself and help me get my Disney Groove Back.

I am so sorry to hear you had a rough trip. That is really disappointing especially after you put work into planning a great time.

Sorry to hear your friend made your trip a not so magical, but don't let it eat at you, plan another trip and go make up for it!!!!

Sometimes friends just "click" at Disney, and sometimes they don't. This happens. Been there, done that. But we have made some awesome "forever friends" at Disney and have traveled with some there too, and everyone of those trips is a memory we will never forget.

So sorry to hear about your trip! I agree with Mr Hub... Some people just don't get it like we do. I am sure you are going to come back around to the good happy positive side of it and will be ready to go again soon!

stars stars and a little pixie dust never hurts!

Bummer about the trip not being all you hoped. Believe it or not, my best friend in all the world doesn't like Disney nor does she "get" why I love it so much. So when we travel together, we go somewhere else and I save Disney for people who are open to the fun and magic. Hang in there. We'll help you get the magic back!

travel with others is never going to be the same and it hurts really bad when they dis something you love, but everyone is different. 9/10 people visiting wdw don't wanna do the attractions that my wife and I wanna do and when we travelled with our sister and brother in law they didn't enjoy the main street parade, character meets or some of the more geeky things, but they are coming to disneyland with us next year they have caught the bug, now the things they like doing are not for us. some times the beauty of disney is that there is something for everyone and no one person is right on how they enjoy the park.

Im really sorry the trip changed your views on disney but like the CoP says "it's a great big beautiful tomorrow"

Oh I would be so disappointed too!

Maybe one way to move on is to think of how AWESOME your next trip will be because you'll know just to go with your husband. Think of it like a really great boyfriend. You need to "make-up" with WDW. Pretend you guys had a bad break-up and now you're trying to repair the relationship. Go on some dates with WDW. Start planning a new trip with all the things you want to do, but just a little at a time. Coming here is a good start. Date #1. Find some of those "Things you didn't know" about WDW (but you probably know lots of them) online. Maybe some good Disney memes. Search "Disney" on pinterest and look for some cute things.

It'll be ok. It'll all work out and you'll live happily ever after with Disney World when it's all said and done. mickey <3

You are all so sweet. I was just so heart broken. I think Kris was correct, we will just have to do something else. My hubs and I are already plotting our return. Smile muchlove
