Three Ways to Cure the Post-Disney Blues

So your Disney trip is over, huh? That’s the worst! It can be hard to go back to the real world after days of characters and ice cream for breakfast, fireworks and attractions, pixie dust and magic.

Happily Ever After

So how can you cure those pesky post-Disney blues? We have some ideas.

1. Make a Photo Book

There’s no better way to cure the post-Disney blues than by reliving your favorite memories. Making a photobook is a great way to preserve your vacation experiences. Make a digital book on websites such as Shutterfly or physically print your favorite photos and scrapbook them. Either way, making a book is something the whole family can do together – hopefully while laughing and remembering the magical times they had in Disney!

2. Watch a Disney Movie

Need some more magic? Pop in a Blu-ray of your favorite Disney movie! Or better yet, watch one you’ve never seen! Did your kids enjoy Fantasmic!, but they haven’t seen Pocahontas? Or maybe they met Tigger, but haven’t seen the original Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh? With dozens of Disney movies – from animated classics to Pixar and Marvel – it’s always possible to find a new family favorite.

3. Book another Disney Trip!

Easier said than done, right? Of course, the dream is to be able to come back again and again. This may not be realistic, but it’s fun to pretend! Check out Disney’s website, and of course, for information on upcoming attractions and lands – such as Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Follow us on social media (@AllEarsNet) for photos around the parks, and to stay up to date on all Disney news. Make note of what looks like a new must-do to you and hypothetically (or really, if you can!) plan your next trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth (or the Happiest Place on Earth if you’re heading to Disneyland).

  1. Have a Post Disney Party with other Disney Enthusiasts. We usually do a pre-Disney Party with family members. We each bring out favorite Disney treat .. whether beer and pretzels from Epcot’s Germany or Mickey Mouse shaped cookies with vanilla ice cream. It would be fun to do after the trip … talk about all the fun things we did as a family (extended) or what other Disney fans like to do. There certainly isn’t a shortage of Disney fans to round-up and talk about Disney World.
