You know that feeling…the overwhelming urge to get in the car and go to Disney immediately….even if it’s a 20 hour drive. That sinking feeling when you catch a glance at the “See You Real Soon” sign as you exit the resort…or worse… you start unpacking your bags upon your return home.
The Disney Blues are real, but there are some things you can do to get over the sadness and back to feeling the magic.
Here are my tips to help bring back that Disney smile!
1. Go through your trip photos or have them processed so you can frame them or scrapbook.
2. Listen to some Disney stations that help you to remember your vacation. My personal favorite is the Live 365 app. There are many stations to choose from that play everything from full ride audio to resort specific music.
3. Watch POV (Point of View) videos on YouTube of your favorite rides or experiences….even fireworks displays! The attached video was submitted to YouTube by PopSong1 and was taken from the train station on Main Street U.S.A.
and the best advice I can give you…
4. Plan your next Disney trip and start your countdown. It doesn’t matter if it is 1 month or 5 years away. Knowing that you can go “home” sometime in the future will help you through those days when you are missing the Most Magical Place on Earth!
Do you have any cures for the Disney Blues?

Disney Dining is always an experience, no matter which restaurant you choose. Special moments happen whether it’s a smile, or even a visit from an unexpected character. Taking a few seconds to unlock your phone, pull up a photo app, or prepare your camera could be mean a missed photo opportunity. During character meals, that initial glance from a Disney favorite may be a moment that you will want to remember forever…and having your camera on the table and ready to go…will ensure that you do not miss any of the magic!
If you were thinking about a Walt Disney World trip in 2014, I have some information that may persuade you to get on that phone immediately!

To say that I am obsessed with the “A Beautiful Mess” app would be an understatement. Ever since I downloaded it a month ago, I have used it with many Disney photos. The pic above is Cinderella’s Castle during the holiday season.
The app is very easy to use and the fonts available are modern and fun. If you like to add captions to your photos, you may want to give it a try.
The app is currently available through the Apple App Store; however will be available for Android sometime later in the summer.
Just be careful…..it is highly addictive!
