So after thinking about it long and hard looks like I'm not going to be renewing my pass in a couple months for a few years. It's not a financial decision it's just time to take a break. I have a lot of wonderful memories at the parks since I was a little kid and feel like the magic isn't really there for me and don't enjoy it like I use too . Maybe I'll feel different come jan but I'm pretty sur  More...
Breaks are good--too much of anything isn't healthy, and when you start feeling a little burnt out or uninspired or whatever, it's time to take a step back.  With too much Disneyland, you can kinda become desensitized to all the excitement and hope and stuff because you're bombarded with it from every angle.  I didn't get to DL for five years while I was in college and then when I graduated, I wanted to try living in Hawaii (great decision).  That first trip back when I was in my twenties was so special because I had changed so much, but I realized my love for DL was still strong.  Now, my husband and I have had passes off and on for 8 years now and whenever we go back after an extended break, our love for the parks and hope for the future is rekindled.  For us, those breaks are a great thing--we find our inspiration again, but we have to step back every once in awhile to be able to really appreciate it, understand it, and feel it acutely.  πŸ’–   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  536.5 #326 7:27PM

I am very thankful and truly grateful for all of the kind words here in this post and this wonderful community that I joined in 2009.I do plan on going for the 60th birthday on July 17th but as before that I'm not too sure if and when I will renew again. If by month 3-4 I really want to go and its driving me crazy I will probably just go and get a pass but I am going to making a very conscious effort on my part to detach myself for a while from the parks and most things Disney related. I have had a pass now for the last 6 and visited the parks probably a 1000 times and visited WDW 10 times in that time frame. I have met a lot of great people and created a lot of wonderful memories during those times but its just time to give it up for a while like I had done after I worked there several years ago. I have so many interests and hobbies in life that don't just center around the parks and I think this is a great chance for myself to go back out there and go explore the museums I haven't been to in years, take those trips to other countries instead of WDW, go and try the laundry list of restaurants I have not yet tried because I spend a lot of time at Napa Rose, get involved with charities and other organizations that I am passionate about, get back involved in the music scene and find creative outlets that can help myself become more fulfilled in life.  Don't want anybody to think this is some kind of swan song and I'm going away for good its just simply whats been on my mind lately. For those who have known me long enough, I'm a deep thinker and like to share my feelings and whats going on in my life. I feel that it helps me to share with others whats going on put down in writing my thoughts. Its something that I never use to do until this year and really found it helped me out quite a bit to put things in writing and encourage others to do so..... - Dave  11412.7 #2 3:16PM
Adventure is out there u will be missed in the parks and we'll see ya at the 60th for sure! It's good to detach for a bit when the magic starts to go. See ya around !! Thank you for all the wonderful memories that u created for me during my time back after transplant . That day will be the best memory of DL forever  - mickeyat78  1403.3 #93 8:53AM
I have to admit I took a break too. For two months we didn't renew and it was really nice to go back. I've also don't go as often which makes the trips more memorable. You are so fun to be around doing Takaaa mischief. - MarshaMouse  4072.0 #24 8:10PM
😳So is Duffy in on this? Since he's gone now you're going too?! I can say I relate to what you've said. I sometimes feel like I'm missing out on other things because I'm always at the parks on my weekends off. Of course I love the parks just like everyone here on MW. But when you feel it's time for a break do it, why not! Let the withdrawals kick in and when you return hopefully the magic will be there for you.
