When you pick up a bottle of Trader Vic's amaretto at the local packy and you just say to yourself "in the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki rooooom"

here's a photo of a Trader Vic's restaurant for reference. Like I said... "in the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki roooom"

When you want to eat at your local Cracker Barrel restaurant because it kind of (however a stretch it may be :D ) reminds you of eating at Port Orleans Riverside. Oh to go back again.....to Disney I mean, not Cracker Barrel, well Cracker Barrel too but I really want to go back to Disney World :D

When you have "Golden Dream" in your head all morning...so you find it on YouTube and listen to it...and you get chills and a little teared up during the song...just like you do every single time you hear/watch it.

Let me guess. Boatwrightes?
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”
― Dr. Seuss

:D Somehow we found out that you can use the restaurant (before they open at night) instead of eating your food in the food court. We did this several times and it was nice and secluded, ahhhhhh :D

When I'm coloring a dinosaur and also some palm-tree looking things in a coloring book with my daughter and I think of the Dinosaur ride. Then, I'm telling my son about it, and he mentions that he was reading about Iguanodons at school and thought of the Dino ride, which made me so proud of course. :D
In my best Dr. Seeker voice, "Not our dino" :D

Every Sunday when we (my wife, daughters & I)sit down for our Roast Sunday dinner we listen to Subsonic radio and talk about our memories of our trips to Walt Disney World and our dreams of when or if we can afford to visit once again. Will we ever get to see a Disney Christmas?

When you mail back the DVC inquiry card to WDW, so they will send you the promotional DVD...not because you want to buy into DVC...but because it's one more WDW thing you can have.

I'm watching a DVC video online tomorrow ~ not because I can afford DVC, but I want to see all the Disney places and get the free lithograph! :mickey:

DW told me last night she wants to eventually be a DVC member. So hopefully we'll win the lottery or have an unknown relative leave us a lot of money in a will.

I'm not convinced that DVC is the best option for us as a family. My mom and stepdad, and my stepsister and her husband, are DVC owners. Mom and Paul use their points to take us to WDW (which has been amazingly awesome) and my stepsister's kids are quite young. With my kids older and entering high school / college next year, it doesn't seem like DVC would work well for us.

I think it works best for people who have young kids and can travel at off-break times of the year (like you guys) or for people who don't have kids and can take vacation virtually whenever.

When you watch the trailer for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag five times and think to yourself "where the heck is the scruffy dog with the keys?"

When you're watching clips from a sweet History Channel special that's airing tonight and all you think about is how awesome it is that you'll be able to ride Maelstrom in a couple weeks.

Yes the special is about vikings.
