Hello everyone! Thanks for providing such a great environment.... I discovered DIS while Google-ing the prospect of a gay wedding at Disney. And while it was a disappointment to learn what so many others have about that particular policy, at least finding the answer was cushioned by finding this great resource for gay Disney lovers like myself. Oh, by the way, I'm single, I just got carried away daydreaming about one day getting married there....LOL...I'm 23, a gay male, living in Maryland between DC and Baltimore. Currently I work as a cardiology supervisor and paramedic, but I'm seriously considering a quest to obtain gainful employment in the Orlando area. So if anyone knows if Disney hires paramedics at the parks let me know. Trying to pick a favorite thing about WDW is impossible for me - but while I'm there I get a sense that the world is perfect and magical, and I think that above all is what makes me an addict. Thanks again for the site! I look foward to talking to all of you!

Hi all,

I'm MaryAnn. I'm new to the forum. I've been to Disney three times with my kids who are now all grown but am going in May for the first time with my lovely wife. She has never been so I'm very excited to share it with her.
I can't wait to go.:cheer2:

Hi to everyone,

I've been a member of the Dis for awhile but away for a couple of years. Planning another trip, so I'm back and stumbled onto this forum.

My name is Allie (40 - ouch that hurts...just happened) and my DP is Kim and she is 42. We celebrated our 17th anniversary recently, and are in the process of raising our two daughters, Sarah (9) and Hannah(6). The midwest is tough.....but we are tougher. We were pioneers in our town when we decided to have children, almost ten years later, it's much more common.

Looking forward to our next trip to Disney in July of this year. Nice to read about all of you.

I can't remember if I posted on this thread, so here goes.
I am Frank, and my partner is John. We are bears, and live an hour from Disneyland in CA. We have been DVC members for 4 years, and our home base is Villas Wilderness Lodge. We usually go to WDW for Flower and Garden, Gay Days, and Food and Wine. I love to cook, so usually include some Disney recipe from the 4 Disney resort cookbooks.
I can be found on here, and both of us on Live Journal, and various "bear" sites, as well as just about every other Disney website known to exist. We also belong to a gay car club, and drive a 57 Chevy on weekends.
John is a CA native, and I was born and raised in MA before moving to CA in '99. And yes, I still have a Boston accent.

My name is Danah and my girlfriend is Mandie. We are 26 and 28, in that same order. We share a house in North Carolina with our dog and 3 cats. I joined this board because it was one of the first places I was able to find any infomation for gay and lesbian couples on WDW. We are getting married this coming September and are planning to spend our honeymoon at WDW. I have only been to WDW once and that was years ago when I was 7 or 8 and Mandie went in highschool. It has been a while since either of us has been and we've never been together so I can't wait! For the moment I've become sort of Disney obsessed while trying to get this thing planned and I'm enjoying every minute of it. Well, nice to meet you all and look forward to sharing more with you.

Hello All.

My name is Joe and my boyfriend of 6 years is Chip. When I fell in love with Chip along came the love for Disney.

We live in Syracuse, NY (the snowiest large city in the US and winner of the golden snowball award year after year) but love to travel, both for fun and culture.

I've been to Disney 6 times and Chip, who knows how many, he used to work there years and years ago as a cast member in the college program and subsequently just for his own enjoyment.

This year he twisted my arm enough and left hints on a daily basis until I caved and booked the Grand Floridian for 6 nights/7 days on top of our week cruise. It will be fun all the same.

Awww, everyone on here is so cute. Cute couples, cute dreams and futures. ^_^ I wuv Disney, haha. I turned 18 March 22nd, which was really exciting. I opened a bank account for my birthday (haha! just kidding) Actually, I went to New York and saw Mary Poppins, Tarzan, The Lion King, and A Chorus Line. All that's missing is Beauty and the Beast, which I'm hoping to see this summer before it leaves Broadway. Then, come December, I'm off to see The Little Mermaid! YAY!

But in September or so, I'm going to start working at Disney. Until then, I am looking to make some money before I move, and I need to find a place to live.

I am becoming addicted to this forum and would love to know a little about all of you that I see post every day. I searched and didn't find another intro thread so... I started one. :teeth:
I'm Julie, my partner is Ava. We live in NYC, beautiful Harlem to be exact.
I'm 30, she's 26. We have 2 cats (yeah yeah the lesbians and their cats ;) )
We're going to WDW again April 22nd-28th!

If anyone has any other questions I'd be glad to answer them :thumbsup2

So... tell me about yourselves!
Hi, we are new to this forum but already having fun. My name is Nena and my partner's name is Darlene. I am 43, well for a few more months and Darlene is 47. Our birthdays are 6 months apart and both on the 30th. We met online (Rocke and Tenderheart) and have been together now (April 23rd) for 5 years. We are both Disney Nuts!!!! We are totally hooked on pin trading. We love going and just sitting, trading pins and talking/meeting new people. We live in Las Vegas, Nevada. We don't own any animals anymore since someone poisoned our dalmation (Cricket), too heart breaking. WE are currently selling trader pins to help people to be able to afford to keep pin trading.

We have never made it to any of the other parks besides DLR. Our future plans are to go to WDW and to take a Disney Cruise (crossing fingers, before we get too old!). Ok enough rambling. If you ever make it to DLR, stop by on Mondays and look for the 2 biggest women there...you got it....that will be us! We both are BIG kids at heart!! We love having fun and enjoying each other. Hope to meet some of you at DLR. Have a GREAT Day!!

Hi all =)

Not really new to the dis but haven't been around much recently (and this board didn't exist when I was coming here fairly regularly)... nice to have a board of our own :)

Soooo... wanted to say hi =) My name is Jon, currently single (which seems to be the minority on this board =p), I live in Sterling, VA and obviously I love Disney and I am a HUGE Peter Pan fan.

I go to WDW almost every year and since my best friend lives in San Diego I make him take me to Disneyland when I go out to visit him =p Right now thinking about taking a trip to WDW in mid sept during the free dining offer... but it would be a solo trip for the first time... so haven't made a firm decision yet =p

So again hi! And I will try to stop in often :)

I'm not sure that I've ever posted in this thread.. and being lazy.. I'm not going to read all 18 pages to find out .. I'll just post again. (Responsible moderator in action eh?)

I'm Knox .. that is actually my last name.. but nobody calls me by my first name since it's the most common name ever.. and there's always six other "Johns" around.. so I defaulted to Knox a few years ago and it stuck.

I'm 37 years old and will be celebrating 38 at Disney over Gay Days. Wahoo! I like having my birthday and GayDays ALWAYS fall together. It's handy. I live in the backwoods of Canada. Almost. Ok its a city. But there aren't many gays here. Or at least I can't find 'em. I lived for a while in New York City (95-98) and Los Angeles (98 - 2002) but then I came home to the backwoods. It's nice here.

I work at a radio station as promotions director and event planner. It's a fun job. Hardly feels like work most days.. which is the idea right? My cheesy radio station promotional picture is in my profile. I was going to do the thing where I point my fingers like a gun and wink.. but management said "No." Boo management.

And because I only work 87 hours a week at the radio station, I spend my spare time as a moderator on the Resorts board here on the DIS.

Well.. at least it keeps me out of more serious trouble. ;)

My significant other is... umm.. wait a sec.. Oh yah.. STILL OUT THERE.. Hey if you're reading this - you are seriously LATE young man. Call me ASAP! ;)

Well.. I have to get to bed soon but here's some about me...

I am pretty much new at all this stuff. I've come out to a few people, but not my family. My girlfriend and I (both 23) met at school(college) and she had a crush on me and I dared her to kiss me.. so.. well.. she wouldn't.. so I did it! And we've been together ever since! It has been a year and 2 months of bliss!

We're both nurses, not at the same hospital tho.

I'm girlie to the max! My favorite color is pink, I hate to sweat. I love long baths and pedicures. High heels are my favorite. My hair is long and I love to wear it straight (even though its super curly). I like getting my hair done and getting new sunglasses. I have 8 piercings.. all in my ears tho!

I love Louis Vuitton and Coach purses and wallets. My wallets and purses have to match! I wear Vera Wang's Princess perfume, which my girl calls Princess Baby.

I'm short. She's tall. She loves blue. I love pink. She's on the comfy side, I'm pretty prissy. Amazingly though, we finish each other's sentences. Will say the most RANDOM things at the same exact time! We're so alike.

We both live with our families. We just graduated college, and we're saving for a house together. We did live for a year together during college, which was amazing. Its hard now that I work the night shift and she's day shift. We don't get to talk much.

She has been to Disney once, but really didn't like it. I've been 12 times and LOVE it. I'm talking her into going someday. She says we can't go there for every trip :confused: but we can for some. She wants to to to Paris... you know what that means!

Thanks for having this forum for people like me. It feels great to be able to be myself to people.

As CanadianGuy said, "I'm 37 years old and will be celebrating 38 at Disney over Gay Days. Wahoo! I like having my birthday and GayDays ALWAYS fall together. It's handy."
I'm another Gemini, my birthday on June 3rd (I'm 38), means that one of the Gay Days will nearly always fall on my birthday, too. This year will be my first to attend Gay Days. I love Disney. It runs in my family. My grandparents took my relatives to Disneyland until Disney World opened, then we all went there annually for years. I still find it unusual to find folks who turn up their noses at my enthusiasm for Disney. I read trip reports about the Pirates & Princess Parties and nearly got choked up with joy and anticipation of ever going during one. I have an awesome pirate costume pirate: to wear there (yes, I'm serious). Currently, I wear it to the pirate ball and Captain Morgan Fantasy Fest Parade here in Key West. Which is the other favorite place / time of my life. So, I'm still a kid at heart - but if you ever come to Key West for Fantasy Fest, be aware that it is joyously a VERY adult week of events (Halloween).

If you DO bring birthday buttons to PI on the 31st, then I won't have to pick one up on June 3rd when we arrive at Disney MGM. That would be very sweet.

But would you prefer "Happy Birthday" or "Feliz Cumpleaños"? Disney has both now...

My 13 year old daughter and I are staying at one of the Marriott places in Orlando the week of June 23-June 30. We live near LA. My daughter loves rides and I'm not always crazy about getting my head earthquaked on the various rides....so I'm wondering if there are any other single or otherwise gay parents who will be around that week with kids who want to hang out in one or the other parks during the week. I'm a gay man in my late 40s. My daughter is sort of low key...although she loves the rides...and is young for her age....If there is another forum more appropriate for this request let me know...also any suggestions on the best rides in Orlando....thanks

hey, friend, let's see if we can find you someone - your best shot if to repost this with a header like, "Could you some help..." or some such thing.

It's a Welsh name, but I have no idea what it means. My mum told me it was an old King's name, but I don't know if that's true.

I tried searching the net for a meaning, but no luck yet :sad1:

The cockatiel hangs upside down (which was a big challenge at first with many falls) and sings Christmas music all day and call the conure's name until he starts yelling. I think the conure is going to go crazy. hahahahahaha

Hello all!

I'm Sean, and I'm a professional commercial photographer from Columbus, Ohio. I'll be turning 30 at the end of August.

I'm lovin' everything I've found on this forum so far. I've seen other Disney-related forums on the web, but this one amazed me because it not only has all types of information you could want, it also seems to have a huge following with active members! I was expecting to see maybe 2 or 3 posts a day on here.....but I was happily mistaken. :yay: :yay:

Interests
-Drum and bugle corps
-Winterguard
-Photography (commercial and fine art)
-Dining out/good food and wine

I'm debating moving to the Orlando area sometime in the near future, so I thought it'd be a good idea to make some friends in the area. And, of course, it'd be great to be so close to WDW.

5 cameras?? I'm impressed. I do this for a living, and I only have 3. :lmao:

Make that 4 cameras. I forgot about my handy l'il digital point-and-shoot. :)

Hi there. I'm new to the DISboards, and wanted to introduce myself.

My name is Rob. My partner, Scott, and I live in the Ocoee/Windermere area. Roughly 8 miles north of the Magic Kingdom. We're big Disney fans and are avid Adventurers Club regulars.

I have participated in the WDWMagic discussion forums for the past few years along with the now mostly defunct forum on gayday.com. I had no idea the DisBoards existed or that there was a Gay/Lesbian forum here. I'm looking forward to spending some time on this forum along with the Wedding/Honeymoon forum as we plan our Commitment Ceremony.

I guess that's it. Just wanted to say "Hi".

Hmmmm.....well.....I'm thinking if it's the kind that folds up and can be carried around (aka a field camera) and has metallic/brassy or even wooden parts, then it was more than likely made before 1960. There's 1 or 2 companies still amking them, but they're not the easiest to come by. (Some of those go back as far as the late 1870s.) However, if it's a metal large format camera that requires the use of a monorail system, then those are still being produced by companies like Toyo and Cambo and have been in production for at least 30 years.

I miss shooting with a 4x5 camera. I've gotten some of the best images with them.

Sorry, I tend to blabber on about photography.

We joined DVC a few months ago so we anticipate going to WDW every year (we've only got two visits under our belt so far). I've learned a lot from these boards, so I expect that I'll be checking in periodically to keep up to date. Thanks to everyone for all the great info and tips!

Hi!

I have been on the Dis for awhile, rarely checked out the Gay and lebian chat. Not sure why. I think I get so caught up in the Theme park board that i spend hours there before i realize. I am getting better at checking out this section though.

Me, I am a huge Disney fan, obviously. I moved to Dallas about 3 years ago with my partner (at that time together 7 years) but since moving to TX we broke up after 9 years, so I was single for about a year and I have just begun dating a great guy....we are only about 6 weeks into our relationship, but i have strong feelings for him. He is a wonderful guy. :love:

I hear all the stories on here about how long some of the couples have been together on here and it gives me hope that this time I will find my true love!

My best friend is gay, and I love him to death! :flower3:

I'm single. I've had two gilrfriends in the past, but both were jerks.

I'm in my junior year of HS, and I live with my parents and little sister. I have a pet beta fish named Styphyn, and a plush velociraptor whom I call Jade.

I'm a huge fan of the Disney Parks. So far, I've done Disney World 7 times (soon to be 8), two of which have been with Lee as well as trip to Disneyland and 2 to Disneyland Paris.

Our next trip is in 5 1/2 weeks time - staying at POR (one of my favourite hotels in the world!).

We have been going to disney together and before we were together for many many years. We just booked our second cruise, and we can't wait to go. It's the western carribean this time. We sailed to the eastern last year.

We didn't make it to WDW this year for the first time in 8 years becasue we held our civil union this June, and we can't go to WDW without our daughter..so we went somewhere else instead.

Hope to hear from all of you.

Hi All-

I am a huge Disney fan, lurking on this site for sometime.

I am a 38 year old gay male living in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I have been with my partner Greg for 9 years. Greg is not a huge Disney fan but has made some compromises for me. We've done a week-long trip in Oct. 2000 to WDW with friends, and then trips (us alone or with others) to WDW or DL in Nov/Dec of 2003, 04, 05, and 06. In the interim, I even took a few Disney trips on my own, either associated with business or trips that Greg was not able to be a part of.

My next trip is planned for WDW from Dec. 16-19. Greg was originally planning to go with me, but due to financial and other stresses in his life (and admitting that he isn't in any hurry to go back to Disney), has decided not to.

I've been visiting Disney parks about 2 times per year, and have been thinking about buying an AP to increase the frequency of my visits. I'm still trying to figure out if this is financially reasonable.

I look forward to meeting other gay and lesbian, as well as solo travelers, either in person or discsussing topics on this board!

Rick

ConcKahuna
08-29-2007, 10:19 PM
:welcome: Rick!!

If you're going to Disney more than 14 or so days a year, I say the AP is a great deal. Not only because of the park admission, but also because of the room discounts (I think they go up to 40% depending on time of year and availability).

Hi everyone. My name is Justin. I'm 26 and I live near Pittsburgh. I just joined DIS Boards tonight. I think...:eek:...I can't remember if I joined it already! So mods...if I did, please keep this username and delete the other ;)

Im single & gay.

Let's see...I recently graduated from college with a degree in Hospitality Management. I like it. I'm a people person by nature. I work in a hotel in Pittsburgh at the front desk.

In 2004, I worked on the College Program at WDW in Animal Kingdom at Kali River Rapids. That started my love of Disney :D I spend way too much time on VMK and I have collected way too many Disney Pins.

And Im the most horrible person when it comes to talking about myself. LOL

Hope to make some good friends on here :)

Hi, we're Dave and Aleks - never seen this board before and came across it by accident. I'm Aleks and will be celebrating my 35th birthday in Orlando on 29 December. We're from Wilmslow, Cheshire, UK and have been together for over six years.

We're flying out to Orlando on Christmas Eve and staying for 17 nights on International Drive, about 10-15 minutes walk from Universal.

We've joined up to get some tips about Universal and Disney for our stay - which days to go, which parks, best place to go on my birthday and best place to be for NYE, prices, advance booking, etc.

We came to Orlando at the end of January 2007 for a couple of weeks, flew back home the day after the tornado/storms hit north of Orlando. We didn't do Disney but got 7-day/2-park tickets for Universal and made the most of them - couldn't keep me of Dueling Dragons or the Hulk!

Anyhow, this year we want to do things differently - understand that it'll be mega busy over Christmas/New Year - just hoping to pick up a few tips and make some friends along the way!

The best thing to do on the last day before a WDW trip is to say

"Only 12 more hours until I leave"; "only 11 more hours until I go to Disney" etc.

I used to drive my coworkers CRAZY that way. And they all knew that if they made some snotty remark, that I wouldn't bring back any goodies for them, so they all kept quiet. It was excellent. :rotfl2:

I can't do that since I moved to Orlando, though. :sad2:

Oh well. I guess it's a small price to pay.

Hi everyone! My name is Ken Zak (nee Ken Baldwin), my husband is Rob Zak. We were legally married after 12 years of living together as "common-law equivalent" in May of 2006, in our home city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Rob & I honeymooned in WDW during the May 2006 Star Wars Weekends and the 2006 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. The WDW cast were VERY nice to us during this time, recognizing our "just married" Mickey/Minnie buttons given to us at our resort.

Rob & I have been to Disneyland Paris, Disneyland (Anaheim), Walt Disney World, Disney on Broadway, and Disney Cruise Line - multiple times for most of these destinations! In 2007 we finally bought into DVC via resale and then later the same year got an add-on contract for Saratoga Springs.

Hobbies: Rob collects Robert Olszewski's Disneyland buildings (we have Main Street USA from Disneyland in miniature on a 6' X 3' banquet table in our spare bedroom). I run D-ZAK Radio on Live365.

Hello everyone! I'm currently a little shy but hope to come out of my shell given time. I love visiting WDW and have been a few times now. I've found it difficult to find just the right kind of forum where people talk about all sorts of different stuff (not just the obvious gay/lesbian lifestyle stuff) and don't know why I didn't think to come here earlier!! It should have been obvious! LOL

I've had to reregister here, so although this is my first post as "Friendly", I am a regular to this site. I'm sure many of you can appreciate why I have had to do this. Since last year I've been in a relationship with another woman. Only four of our close friends know of our true relationship (i.e. not just "regular" girlfriends). We are very committed to each other and really feel we've met our soul-mates. This may come as a surprise to many people (because we are both in our forties) but it's only occurred to both of us that we are lesbian since we realised how we felt for each other.

I have so many questions about everything, but they can wait! Would love to know many other people were "old" before the obvious hit them, LOL.

Thanks for listening. :goodvibes

You might want to try posting your question in a new thread. Not everybody always checks through the Introduce Yourself thread thoroughly and that is an interesting question you are asking.

My partner and I host a womens dinner once a month and from talking with the people that we meet we find that it is very common. There are so many people that try to conform to what the community expects and then think for many years that they lack in some respect or another because they just are not completely happy with their lives. Then one day... that little light goes off and when it does, watch out... their whole world changes and they can look back and see several moments in time that their soul was trying to talk to them...

Hello everyone. I've been reading these boards for quite a while now and I thought it was about time I actually said hi.

My name's Michael and I'm originally from London. I moved to the States just over 13 years ago and so now live in New York City. My partner is Talip - he is originally from Istanbul and we have been together for nearly 12 years. No kids unfortuantely as work tends to rule our lives but we are the proud daddies of a hyperactive dog called Japser who is doing whatever he can to put us in an early grave!

I must admit that I was the original WDW freak in the family but having convinced him to take a vacation there a number of years ago I successfully managed to get him completely hooked too! Our next trip will be April 24 to May 4 next year - we are going so that I can forget about the fact that I will be 40 that week - yikes, how the hell did that happen! :confused3

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello to you guys. I'm really glad I found these boards and this section in particular. I know I will be hanging out alot if you'll have me. Cheers! ;)

It's always good when lurkers come out to chat (pun intended) and we've got a great crew on here. I see that you two boys are comming down during the Flower and Garden festival. That's always a great time to visit. If you push back your stay another month, you can come for Gaydays, and that's always a fun experience :thumbsup2

Hello everyone. Been a member for a while but never really posted items until now...

My name's Mel (34) and I'm from Merrittstown, Pa (about 35 minutes S. of Pittsburgh) My partner is Billy (26) :love: whom I have had the pleasure of being with for almost 5 years. We have three kids, two cool cats (Puss N' Boots & Diamond. Also, we have a new addition, our little puppy Jasmine our own tower of terror! LOL

I have always loved Walt Disney movies and have had at times a weird obsession with Mary Poppins! LOVE HER! I track her down every time we visit the park and even convince a disney worker to set up a personal meet and greet. It was amazing.

Our next trip will be November 24 to December 1 of this year - Billy and I are really looking forward to this trip as we are taking my mentally challenged sister for her visit to Disney world. I know I will be emotional the whole time we are there as she gets to meet the characters she has loved for a long time.

If any other DIS members are at Disney during this time, hit me up and perhaps we can meet up along the way. Would be nice to see other gay couples while we are there!!! I love this discussion board and I'm really glad that the gay section exists. I check this site almost everyday for new Walt Disney information.

Have a great day!

We have 2 daughters (princess: 4 and princess: 2), 3 dogs, and 2 fish. That pretty much answers why I'm CRZYINNJ. :crazy2: LOL.

As I was surfing the web for several weeks now, I finally found a board for gay disney travellers. Me, that's Chris, 34, and my partner Will, 32, are going to WDW for the first time from December 8 - 22, 2007 and are already quite excited about that what's going to come.

We do live in Vienna, Austria (sorry, no Kangoroos) and have one cat.

As we do have Disneyland Paris, Disney itself has obviously no interest to attract any Europeans to Florida, so planning this vacation was quite stressfull. :surfweb:
(I am already afraid of my phone bill).:scared1:

Anyways what I really wanted to find out is maybe some of you could give us some advice or report their experiences what it is like to go to WDW as a gay couple, without the "backup" of gay days.

We usually don't kiss in public or hold hands, but as we are a couple for 14 years we'd like to make this trip our anniversary celebration.

Maybe this problem seems strange to you after all, but different countries have a different cultures.

Thanks for your advice :goodvibes

Welcome to all the new folk!

Timben - you shouldn't have any problems. Quite a few of the people on this board have gone for honeymoons and anniversaries and were treated the same as any other couple. Take a look at some of the other threads and you'll find lots of good information. And feel free to ask any questions - we're a pretty friendly group.

I am visiting WDW in Nov with a couple of friends and very much looking forward to it. I haven't been to WDW since 1992, and from what I have been reading there have been a lot of changes in 15 years. I have been to Disneyland 14 times and Disneyland Paris once.

A friend told me about this site and I have enjoyed reading through the various threads, everyone is so friendly. :goodvibes

So Hi, I'm Jenn. I am not gay, but I'm used to being the token straight gal in my group of friends. I've been told I'm 2 more episodes of Project Runway away from earning my gay card :rotfl:
I'm from southeastern MA, spent summers on the Cape, and currently live outside of Providence, RI. I'm 32, married to Michael (36) and we are owned by 2 incredibly spoiled beagles/hellhounds named Roswell and Mr Peabody.
I'm the Disney fan in the family, but DH does tolerate it. We don't get to go very often because I'm a full time student plus working full time. We are going the week after Thanksgiving and I can't wait! :cheer2: I need a vacation.

Nice to meet you guys!

Hello and thanks in advance for some advice...

I've been to Disney about a million times, no kidding. I was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area. But I have only been as a kid, or with a kid (most recently my nephew about a year ago).

I have not lived in Florida since I graduated from college 15 years ago (I now live in DC) and my girlfriend, a New Yorker, has never been to Disney so I am taking her for her 50th birthday in December. I have never stayed at one of the resorts, I have never park hopped, and I have never been there as an adult without a small child with me. I have only made day trips from my parents' house, and I have only been to the main park and Epcot (once, when it first opened, when I was in high school).

SO, in a way this is my first time in a lot of ways. I was wondering if anyone has answers to some questions.

We are getting a park hopper pass. How difficult is it to travel between parks? How long does it take? Do you need to drive, or is there adequate transportation between parks? I know that the monorail goes between Disney and Epcot, but how do you get between the other parks?

I think we are going to stay at the Coronado. Does anyone recommend it? They mention bus service to the parks, but how convenient is it? I have been through the "Mickey row 50, space 280" routine and catching the tram too many times. Part of the reason we are staying at a resort is I am trying to avoid it. Is this possible?

I know that Disney is gay friendly, but are there any places to go that are especially fun at night for a lesbian couple?

Thanks so much.

Hi Colleen3!

I've never stayed @ Coronado but lots of people really love it a lot and the pool looks fabulous. Park-hopping is way cool and (IMHO) Disney Transportation bus service is just fine (I almost never rent a car). I think you will probably have a GREAT time.:goodvibes Best hint I can give you is to wear VERY comfortable footwear. (I sometimes even wear two pairs of socks just to make sure I don't get blisters.)I think there are several nightlife threads posted below -- jump on in, it's a very fun group!

Hi Colleen,

My ex and I stayed at Coronado last year. We were there for the American Coaster Enthusiasts convention.

The main pool and lake are beautiful.
The food court at the Coronado was a little strange - you got the food yourself, but a server brought you your drinks and they automatically added in the tip. The bus service was OK. Most of the time the buses were empty. I guess because about 1/2 of the guests were there attending conventions and were not going to the parks.

Have fun on your trip!

Hi Guys,

Sorry I haven't logged on for a bit, been busy at work. Yes TuckandStuiesMom and ConcKahuna are correct, a chook is Aussie for chicken. They give me fresh eggs every day and I give the extras to family and friends. I do get other birds in my backyard, Rainbow Lorrikeets, cockatoos and sometimes Galahs, also Kookaburras. Oz as you guessed is one of the nicknames for Australia, less to type you see. I live in the state of Queensland (yes its really the name).

I will be in WDW in Nov, fly out from Oz on 31 Oct, visiting friends in Tennessee first before heading to Orlando, cant wait. The countdown is on. just over 2 weeks left at work. :banana:

Thanks for the welcome guys, looking forward to further chats.

We did not jump quickly enough and by the time we tried to book at Coronado, it was sold out. So, we are staying at the Caribbean Beach resort, which we are happy with. Thanks for the advice on the transportation. We probably won't rent a car until the last day. We are 4 days in Disney, and 4 days with my family in the Tampa area so we will need a car at the end of the trip.

BTW, I have never been to Universal. We are debating trading in our 3-day Disney pass for a 4-day pass and skipping a day at Universal. My 12-year-old nephew just LOVES it, but I went on the Buzz Lightyear ride something like 8 times in a row with him so I'm not necessarily relying on the advice of a pre-teen. Remember, I've been to The Magic Kingdom a LOT as a day-tripper although not to the other parks, but my partner has never been to any before. It is my opinion that we should do all-Disney this trip, and do Universal next time we go. Is that a good plan, or should be make a day for Universal?

I think that is the plan. I looked online, and a day pass to Universal for both of us would be about $160.00. That's kind of silly unless it's REALLY worth it, considering a day upgrade for Disney would be about $40.

How did Australia become known as Oz ? I asked a few friends and we think it has something to do with the pronounciation of Aussie (pronounced Ozzie) and this got shortened to Oz for the name of the country.

Hi there. I posted briefly a few years ago, and now decided to come back on. I'm Joe, from NYC (and the other half of RickinNYC). I'm an 8th grade English teacher and we have the best little son in the world (a 13-year old dog, as you can see from my name).
Anyway, just saying hi and I'll keep checking in and posting and saying hello.

Hello everyone! We're new to Disboards. My name is Mark and my significant other is Jacob. We live in Berkeley, California. We're going to WDW for the very first time from November 10-17. We're staying at AKL. We're SOOOOOOO excited. Anyway, just wanted to say hello. Oh yeah....and we also purchased the Holiday Wishes Cruise on Friday November 16th, and we have 8 open spots...We'd prefer to have other LGBT folks on the cruise (but Jacob says groovy straight people are cool too!)...so if anyone would like to join us, PM me. I figure that if others wanted to come along, I would ask them just to pay $20/person to defray some of the cost (the entire cruise is like $275)..well, anyway, howdy to everyone! :dance3:

Ooooooooh Mark -- that sounds like fun. I betcha you'll find some takers on cruise shares. I have always wanted to do one of those -- but sadly, won't be there until next spring.

I can't remember if I ever posted an introduction for us before...If I did, sorry to do it again.

We are Nicholas and Michael, just North of Cincinnati, OH in West Chester - home of IKEA in Spring 2008. :cool1: The only thing that would make me happier would be the opening of a Disney Outlet nearby...but that would mean even less money going to savings.

We're DVC members at Saratoga Springs as of May - banked the points for next year.

Mike works for an airline :dumbo:and I work in HR for a big company in the area. I am a former Disney Cast Member :earboy2: - College Program + The Disney Store (Pre-Children's Place). We have 4 dogs - 1 girl and 3 boys...all Italian Greyhounds - aged 6-12.

We travel a lot both for work and pleasure...going back to WDW for my Bday the week after Thanksgiving - can't wait. :banana:

We tend to lurk on here until we are making plans for another trip...our next ideal trip is on the May Repo cruise to LA...hoping for a good last minute interline deal...but able to face the reality that it likely won't happen. :confused:

Hoping to make some cool friends we can travel with/meet at the parks or even some locals to hang out with when we visit...don't be shy!!

Joined in spirit in 1994, my partner (Robert Zak) and I married in Canada - honeymooning in WDW after that. We usually get to either Disneyland or WDW once a year (at least).

This year we finally made it to Disneyland Paris in May (très beau). We also just got back from WDW ("Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party" was GREAT!) and the Disney Cruise Line.

Hope you all had a great Halloween!

Hello,

My name is Mark and I am a lurker. That's the first step, right?

Tampa FL here with AP DVC BWV SSR and DDE. Always up for a visit to WDW.

Scheduled for Dec 9-11 but friends may be backing out. Anyone else visiting at that time and looking to hang out? Love seeing WDW decked out for Christmas.

Hi guys,

I'm Willem, a 27 year old guy from Belgium. Since about 10 years I'm with my boyfriend Steven. I'm a teacher, Steven is quality manager. We are big fans of the Disney theme parks. Go to Disneyland Resort Paris at least one weekend a month, and try to visit another Disney resort every summer. Went to WDW, California and Tokyo. Summer 2008 we'll do WDW again + the Disney Cruise.
I especially love the Disney shows. I just love it when it's so touching it makes me cry :-)
My favourite movie is Beauty & The Beast. Saw the musical too (in The Netherlands and Belgium) and it's great!
Besides Disney I go to the gym and like to read, watch movies and to go out once in a while.
I love Disney music, but also diva's (Celine, Cher, Madonna, Kylie (will see her concert May 2008).

Ron made his first trip only last April when we bought @ DVC SSR . Which led to a 2nd visit for him this fall and now in less than 3 weeks our first cruise with Disney. I am so looking forward to it as well as meeting others on this board.
