11 Ways to Tell You’re a Walt Disney World Fan

Not everyone on Earth is in love with Disney World like you are. In fact, they see Disney World fandom as an affliction, and they’re annoyed when they see a pandemic of it. But you, the Disney World superfan, can’t understand why anyone would turn up his nose at the chance to be in the parks. Your mind simply cannot process that scenario. And to you, being star struck by all things Disney is certainly no affliction, but rather the antidote for all that’s negative and wrong in the world. Merely visiting the parks here and there doesn’t make you a fan. No, it’s more than that. In fact, there are many characteristics, habits and preferences that make a Walt Disney World fan. Are you a fan? And to what extent?

Here are eleven ways to tell that you’re a fan—and perhaps a superfan—of the most wonderful and magical place on Earth. How many of the following traits and habits do you have?


About Rebekah Tyndall Burkett

Rebekah grew up in Forney, Texas and lives just outside of Dallas. She’s been a Disney superfan since childhood, experiencing the magic at Walt Disney World for the first time at the age of 11. Journeys to Neverland are at least a yearly occurrence for her, her husband and her four children (the Fab Four). When they go to the parks, they stay in Florida for three weeks at a time. Rebekah loves exploring the history of the parks, the genius behind the Magic in the person of Walt Disney, and she is intrigued by all things Disney World and Disney Imagineering. When in the parks, Rebekah and her husband Scott make the most of their time by enjoying every minute with their Fab Four, by delving deeper into Walt’s vision for the parks and into the history behind the Walt Disney World Resort, and by photographing the many different types of architecture at Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and on the World Showcase at EPCOT. When she’s not in the parks, Rebekah is excitedly setting travel dates and planning her family’s next adventure to their happy place deep within the Sunshine State. On breaks from planning her next trip, Rebekah is a writer, journalist and children’s author, penning children’s books about kids with special needs that she affectionately calls “believement-achievement” stories. Her hobbies include creative writing, paper crafting and interviewing Imagineers. She is also an advocate for Autism Awareness and for children with developmental disabilities of all kinds.
