16 Signs You're Shamelessly Addicted to Disney World
Helen Dore

Living in Florida has some perks. One — it's never too cold, and then there's Disney World. Having been an annual pass holder for three years now, I can say that, yes, I am addicted to Disney World. And, screw it, I'm proud.. And I'm not the only one. Disney addiction is an all-too-real thing, and it's wonderful.

Here are 16 ways you know you're a (proud) Disney fanatic.

1. You can navigate around all four parks without a map.

Consistently going to Disney for three years can do that to you.

2. You know every single Disney song.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F6362065276410206701487754387_2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=525&h=fac5b06cd7402da8e917dd5ba941a1f484eabeb49aaa3e3872426a8cb3f56724&size=980x&c=18226147 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F6362065276410206701487754387_2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D525%26h%3Dfac5b06cd7402da8e917dd5ba941a1f484eabeb49aaa3e3872426a8cb3f56724%26size%3D980x%26c%3D18226147%22%7D" expand=1]

Being addicted to Disney means you got to know the songs, especially the ones on the rides.

3. You never get tired of seeing the fireworks and the parade.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F636206528277822022-431591483_3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=426&h=cab32162aa3b73216a0b46630cbe19f09cb72f3ac4129e94d4922bed810e411e&size=980x&c=1241198995 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F636206528277822022-431591483_3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D426%26h%3Dcab32162aa3b73216a0b46630cbe19f09cb72f3ac4129e94d4922bed810e411e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1241198995%22%7D" expand=1]

But this also means that this is the best time for rides like the Seven Dwarf Mine Train, Space Mountain, Soarin', Test Track, Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, Toy Story Midway Mania, and Expedition Everest.

4. You know the shortest line for each ride.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F636206530919280616-815346746_4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=455&h=14895976e573dee1dd64ce022899f200237b1fc2b8f85193313318e8d4ef7fa1&size=980x&c=2058142050 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F636206530919280616-815346746_4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D455%26h%3D14895976e573dee1dd64ce022899f200237b1fc2b8f85193313318e8d4ef7fa1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2058142050%22%7D" expand=1]

In the morning, I usually have fast passes for the big rides with the longest times, and after lunch, I usually go on the rides that have about a 45-minute wait time or less.

5. You have too much fun planning for your Disney trip. Even if it is for other people.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F6362065320665243521507693672_5.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=373&h=673b3e93e5e11a3273db93d9acae3869780855410de1930d36f7b0883d15ed1d&size=980x&c=1602904954 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F6362065320665243521507693672_5.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D373%26h%3D673b3e93e5e11a3273db93d9acae3869780855410de1930d36f7b0883d15ed1d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1602904954%22%7D" expand=1]

6. Meeting Mickey Mouse never gets old.

Actually, meeting any characters never gets old.

7. You have at least one autograph book filled.

8. You know the best way to avoid crowds.

9. You know where the nicest bathrooms are.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F636206536056101721-233629205_9.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=634&h=c1ec1cba242f1c3da536bf9d15856bd321571d1c88aca6df208e2a93ec2751c5&size=980x&c=3474834632 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F636206536056101721-233629205_9.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D634%26h%3Dc1ec1cba242f1c3da536bf9d15856bd321571d1c88aca6df208e2a93ec2751c5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3474834632%22%7D" expand=1]

10. You get upset when someone confused Disney World and Disneyland.

There's a difference guys.

11. You reserve certain rides for naps and rest time.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F636206537377061425-82893314_11.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=830&h=066ba02cf357da09aaf3d3d007adeb6168d6c8dcd7da5df0de3f4097d91c6499&size=980x&c=167837752 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F636206537377061425-82893314_11.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D830%26h%3D066ba02cf357da09aaf3d3d007adeb6168d6c8dcd7da5df0de3f4097d91c6499%26size%3D980x%26c%3D167837752%22%7D" expand=1]

It's been a long, hot day. Therefore, you go to PeopleMover, Carousel of Progress, Haunted Mansion, Spaceship Earth, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, and Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage.

12. You have a favorite park snack.

Can we just talk about the turkey legs?! Love them.

13. You love seeing people experience the magic of Disney World for the first time.

14. You are okay with being at the parks while it's raining because you know it will be less crowded.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F22%2F636206541467103771-1063628231_14.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=859&h=1f6d6b7ed922f9c3b94e41fff8506865ff6da3e5d2f212e1250032960e88ab10&size=980x&c=3830415399 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F22%252F636206541467103771-1063628231_14.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D859%26h%3D1f6d6b7ed922f9c3b94e41fff8506865ff6da3e5d2f212e1250032960e88ab10%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3830415399%22%7D" expand=1]

16. When you are not at Disney World, you are thinking about the next time you will be.

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.


By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101


    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
