You Might Be a Disney Fanatic If…

If you are slightly obsessed with Disney, you probably won’t need a list to confirm that you are a Disney fanatic. Your family already knows it, your friends certainly know it, and even that grocery store clerk is fully aware. You’re the “go-to” Disney vacation planner in town, friends and strangers alike coming to you for advice. You go to the parks so often that you know the Dapper Dans on a first-name basis, and are convinced that if Jeopardy was entirely Disney-centered, you’d be a millionaire. It’s a fascination that some people just don’t “get,” but that’s never stopped you from being unabashedly preoccupied with and devoted to Disney. If you aren’t quite certain of your “Disney fanatic” status, check out this list below. Chances are if you identify with more than a couple, you’re a true-blue, diehard Disney-ite.
