No, this isn't what you think. I thought it'd be fun to share where we came from in terms of our involvement on the DIS. What brought you here? What boards do you frequent the most? What's your favorite part about the DIS? :disrocks:

What brought you here?

A Camry Hybrid and my love for the Disney Theme Parks.

What boards do you frequent the most?

I can't say or I might get reprimanded. DUH! The Podcast Boards, the Resorts Boards and the Gay and Lesbian Boards.

What's your favorite part about the DIS?

The REAL LIFE friends I have met - almost becoming a family. :rolleyes1

I Googled something about disabilities and Disney - because I was planning a wish trip for Lauren and needed that information. The DIS was a wealth of information.

The DIS ladies that are part of The Big Give sent Lauren custom made clothes, shirts, etc, etc before her trip - it was amazing what "strangers" did for her!

Mostly I stay on the Wish Trippers thread and focus on the Wish Trip reports.

I also went on a trip with 2 friends I met on the DIS in Sept 2010 and had a BLAST and we are writing that TR - so I hang out over there, too.

I check Theme Parks Board every day for any news or interesting threads and check over here, too.

The DIS had provided a platform that has enriched the lives of many people in the Make a Wish Trip Community - many families have been selected to be recipients of The Big Give (DISboutiquers do this).

We have also had one child get his wish to meet the Gingerbread Men because of the DIS.

And we had a child that got to meet a real steam train engineer and his family opened the park that morning. This was because someone met them on the DIS and set it up for them! That wish meant so much to this child and his family that his health has gotten better and right now he is in remission from his cancer!


Thank you guys for starting the DIS and doing such a great job promoting and maintaining it...I think it has done more for people that you can imagine.

I originally started out on the teen boards back in 2000-2001, didn't post too often, lurked mostly and then I forgot my username and password. I rejoined a few years later and mostly hung around the community board, again didn't post much and eventually forgot yet again my new username and password. In 2008 I rejoined yet again with a user name and password that I could remember and I started to post more often, It wasn't until 2009 though when I discovered the podcast and trip reports that I started to post more often. I got to go to PCC 2.0 and meet some people that I've talked to and I've learned so much. I guess 3rd time was a charm!

I came here when the boards first started looking for Disney information. We first visited WDW in 1993 and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, the Internet wasn't what it is today. Looking for Disney information wasn't really available until RADP came around, then the DIS around 1997/1998. I visited the DIS everyday to get my fix until our next trip. At the time we only travelled to WDW once or twice a year.

I normally visited the theme parks, resorts, and restaurants boards, then I started hitting the DVC boards once we bought points in 2004. Over the past 5 years I pretty much visit all of boards related to the theme parks and resorts including the Universal boards.

I can honestly say that. I purchased an iPhone in 2009 a few months after I switched from PC to Mac.

I started downloading apps and podcasts. At the same time, I found the DIS Unplugged, and I found an app called Couch to 5K (running).

Well, long story short, I lost 50 pounds and found a Disney community I never knew existed. I thought I was alone in my Disney passion for 25+ years.

My life hasn't been the same since. :)

What brought you here?

After a couple of trips, we wanted to really start researching our future trips. I started researching a surprise Birthday trip for my DW. About the same time, we discovered the Podcast and we were completely hooked!

What boards do you frequent the most?

Podcast Board, Photography Board, Rumors Board, Resorts Board, Theme Parks and Attractions board, and a Lego Land Board, if it gets started :rolleyes1



What's your favorite part about the DIS? :disrocks:

The Friendships and the knowledge!

I started out on the cruise boards (meet thread) before our 2008 cruise, then moved over to the WDW meets thread before our summer 2009 trip. I started listening to the podcast while planning for that trip.

Currently I hang out here and try to spend as much time as I can on the Disneyland boards.

Well, I come from the Disneyland Resort boards. :) I came to Dis when I was getting ready for a trip to Disneyland- the first after several years. I had grown up going to DLR, but thought there must be more I can learn about it so I googled Disneyland tips and found the DLR boards.

However, I wanted something Disney to listen to and I found this podcast. Even though I have never been to WDW I started listening and then wandered over to this board. So, I'm mainly on the DLR boards and this one. Sometimes I lurk on the other WDW boards hoping I can soak in enough WDW info for our tentative trip in 2014. What a difference from DLR! I have a lot to learn!

I bought an iPod (80g - what is now called a "classic") on August 24, 2007. We already had room only reservations at the Contemporary and I was already searching the disboards for information (note the join date - which is the same month I made the reservations).

I hadn't spent much time on the boards then, but when I bought the iPod I subscribed to all of the Disney related podcasts. I didn't know what a podcast was at the time. (When I first listened to the DIS Unplugged, I kept wondering, why do they let that inarticulate person from Massachusetts keep talking? Then I realized that this was the way I would talk if I did a podcast and I had a new hero.) We had been to WDW several times and I was looking to get more out of the visits.

I'm looking for a "Disney is my mid-life crisis board."

I found my way here in 2007 through Google, looking up different things such as rental houses in Orlando, restaurants, and tips for Disney with toddlers. It seemed like everything I was looking into led me to the DIS! I spent endless days and nights combing through the boards and was amazed at all of the things I did not know about taking a trip in Disney World. :worship:
Usually I read all new posts, so I can't really say which I read the most.

I was planning a 40th birthday/10th anniversary trip for my husband and I in 2009. We had a great time and I feel in love with Disney World; it was the first trip for both of us.
I bought an iPod around the same time. While searching for planning tips I came across the boards and discovered the Podcast. I listened to 4 or 5 different Disney podcasts for about 6 months but when my trip was done this is the only one I kept listening to.
Now I frequent the Unplugged board all the time (more of a lurker) and on occasion the other ones, with Budget Board being #2.

I love the information, the friendship, the humor-- I can't name just one thing :lovestruc

I was looking for information about a Disney wedding when i found the dis. There wasn't, and still isnt, a lot of info on disney's site about weddings, so this site was invaluable to me! It literally saved me thousands of dollars on my dream wedding and made it amazing.

When I joined I'd been to Disney world too many times to count already and thought I knew everything there was to know about the parks, i just needed wedding info. Of course i was wrong! I've learned so much on these boards and it really feels like home :hippie:

Oh, and when I started out 6 years ago, I mostly stuck to the weddings board, but now I find myself on this one, the budget and family boards and the dvc area. I also visit the theme parks board but I don't post much there.

My wife and I honeymooned at DisneyWorld in June 2008. It was the first trip either of us had made. It was actually a pretty last minute decision to go (we had some other not so exciting plans - but we realized we had a little more money to make a trip than we thought). Mainly, I used the DIS for dining information - and that was about it. I guess I didn't realize that there was a whole community here. After our honeymoon, I didn't give it much more thought, until New Years day 2009. I was laying in bed and all of a sudden I had this strong desire to be at DisneyWorld. I looked over at my wife and said we should go again this year...and about 10 minutes later we were booked. We had significantly more planning time than before so I started spending a lot of time on the site just doing research. Then I found the podcast....life has never been the same since.

I frequent the DIS Unplugged board, and lurk alot around the restaruants board and the trip reports.

My favorite thing about the DIS is that with a compilation of everyone's knowledge and experience I take a virtual DAILY trip to WDW.

I founf the DIS when I was planning a trip in 2004. I lurked for a while, then started asking questions and posting. 7 years later, I don't think I could ever leave- I love these boards (and podcast)!

I frequent the DIS Unplugged, Theme Parks Attractions and Planning, and Community boards the most. I look in on Budget, Orlando, Rumors, and Disney Movies boards occasionally.

My favorite part of the DIS? I love all the cool things I have learned about over the years. Also learning how to better tour the World and how to save $$ while doing it. I also love the Podcast and consider Pete, Kevin, and everyone else my "friends" who give me my Disney fix every week.

After a trip with my girls in 2007 (it had been 8 years since the last trip) we went shopping and ran into a lady wearing a Disney jacket...we got to talking and I said that we decided to go back the next year...she told me about a couple of web sites to look at for discounts....that's when i found the DIS....then I started listening to the Pod Cast....been here ever since.

I visit this board almost every day, I also like the Theme Parks, Transportation and Cruise Forums.

What keeps me here, is that I feel like I've made some friends (even though I haven't met many of them) and I find the information that I get here is great!! I feel like this is 'Home'

Hello fellow VA beacher! haha My dad loves the podcast and we listen to it on road trips and stuff so naturally I joined the DIS family :cool1:

Back in '98, I started planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip to WDW for my two kids and me, plus my dad, his wife, and her grandson. I bought a planning book by Rita Aero and there was a link to her Disney website. I first went there, and a person on that board (Ahnalira) sent out an invitation to come to a new board on the DIS called the Inspiration Board. At that time I was on that board and another Disneyland board, but once I came to the DIS I was drawn here more and more until I just stayed here.

At that time the whole DIS was kind of like the Podcast board, where just about everyone knew each other. I learned a lot about WDW and made friends in the meantime.

I became a moderator of the Disneyland Board in 2000, and mainly hang out in that corner of the DIS (mostly lurking and moderating, and occasionally joining in the conversations). I also come to the Podcast board a lot and the Community Board.

I love the DIS for the information, camaraderie, and the friends I have made and will make. I've learned so much, Disney and non-Disney, here, and I've made several online and real friends.

I was planning a trip in 2003 and a friend suggested I look into renting DVC points and directed me to this site for that. I was already a Disney nut and it's all downhill from there - haha. I never did rent DVC points but I did use it as a planning tool (and continue to do so).

I frequent the Unplugged board, Attractions board and ... visit the others occasionally. Anything for a Disney fix!

What brought you here?
Back in 2008 we were planning our first trip as a family since my sister and I were little kids. We used to have grandparents that lived near Orlando, so staying onsite had never been something wehad to worry about. As you know, Disney's site has very little information and so it didn't take long before I wound up on the Dis. After doing research for awhile and constantly finding my way back here, I gave in and decided to join the boards. This place is just too informative for it's own good!

What boards do you frequent the most?
The unplugged boards, the resort and restaurant boards, and the theme park attractions & strategies boards!

What's your favorite part about the DIS?
I like getting a little Disney fix when I can't be there, especially the photo threads. If I have a question about something I can always find the answer here. Or I can ask and have an answer within minutes!

I haven't been using these fourms a lot since I am still quite new here, but I love the information I find and how friendly people are here! I mostly started using this fourm because I am really interested in the Disney College Program. Out of many fourms I am a member of, this one has been the most helpful for the CP. With that said, I mostly use the College boards since I am a college student.

I started out many, many years ago on the Prodigy boards (yes, that ages me.) Then I went awhile without any 'Disney Fix' until I found the Disboards. Loved the Disboards, at that time we weren't DVC owners and the resort boards and the theme park board was my place to be (saved me tons of money finding out about AP Discounts, etc.).

Then I found the Dis Unplugged Podcast Board...and I was totally hooked, downloaded all the old podcasts and listened to them from the beginning. Fell in love with Bawb (who didn't), and the rest of the team.

Now I visit the Podcast Board, all the DVC boards, occasionally the budget and travel boards, and lately the Wedding boards because I'm planning a 40 year Anniversary Event.

What brought me here?

No idea it was a long time ago. Based on my date I would have to say it had to do with the Disney Marathon probably responding to a question, Jan 2003 I did my first Marathon (ok and three more since going to be 4).

What boards do I frequent most?

Podcast board and the WISH board

What do i love about the dis?

I listen to Podcasts to pass the time while i am training for my marathons!

What brought you here?

In 2008 I was doing the ABD Backstage Magic trip. I wanted to know what was going to happen on the trip (I don't like surprises), so I Googled and found a thread on the DIS. I got to meet some people who were on my trip before we met in "real-life".


What boards do you frequent the most?

I like looking through trip reports and the Podcast board.


What's your favorite part about the DIS?

I love being in a community where everyone has the same interest. I also the fact that I have met some great people on this site!

What brought you here?
While on my first trip with my dance students for a dance competition at Disney, the parents started talking about things like Fantasmic and 50's primetime where if you don't wash your hands they scold you. I had never heard of any of this so when I got home I started researching and it was all over for me. I've been on the boards ever since.


What boards do you frequent the most?
Depends on what I'm looking for at the time but everyday I start with the podcast board. Right now 2nd seems to be DVC. Since we're renting DVC points I try to find out if waitlists are coming through and how hard it's going to be to segment my dining plan.


What's your favorite part about the DIS?

My favorite part is the podcast, but closely followed by the boards and chat. It's great to be able to chat with friends( even though you may not have even met) about everything Disney....especially without hearing...Disney again??? Don't you want to go somewhere else?

I kinda "fell down the rabbit hole" into the DIS. My job entails me reading and analyzing charts so I used to listen to radio/CD's all the time to drown out co-workers talking and noise. But I got tired of those and got an IPod. While I was downloading my music I discovered "podcasts" on ITunes. I discovered that I can listen to people talking about different things. I listened to a few travel podcasts, news, and other podcasts then I put in Disney and found the DISunplugged and a few others.

After listening for several weeks I finally checked out the site. WoW look at all this information. I remember my DH asking me "how do you know all this about Disney" and "what are you downloading." My co-workers kept asking me "what are you laughing about."

I frequent the DISunplugged board and the resort boards. I go wherever the mouse leads me and sometimes wander off the beaten path.

I'm happy to know there are others out there that love Disney like I do.

I found the DIS after planning an early 2001 trip. I just like researching and finding info and helping other people with info.

And I love how active the DIS is. I expect every message board to be as active (hello, naturallycurly.com, which is a great board), but it isn't!

I like the Resorts board. For some reason, I'm fascinated by the resorts - finding the perfect resort for each particular situation and taste. I get distracted by other DIS boards, but I always go back to that one!

I started listening to the podcasts a few years ago with my cheap hand me down MP3 player. (I walk 45 min to 1 1/2 hours 5 times a week and the podcasts are very entertaining!)

I bought DH an ipod in 2007. One morning, after he had been messing with it the night before, he told me that I was lucky that there wasn't a hole in the window where he threw it. He was so frustrated with how it "takes over".

After finding the Disunplugged, I finally needed to upgrade to an MP3 player with more memory (too many podcasts - I had to delete before I downloaded because my cheap MP3 player didn't have much memory!). So, I dug out DH's discarded ipod, and now I listed to other podcasts (Disney and otherwise - love Stuff You Missed in History Class, but they don't always have a topic that interests me).

I like how the Disunplugged crew is in the same room when recording. That keeps bringing me back. Pete is right - it really makes a difference. Listening to other podcasts, technology can't really seem to substitute for that. I love when they go "off topic". It becomes unplanned, and that's when it seems to get personal. That doesn't seem to happen when podcasters aren't face to face.

Way back in 2005 I started researching our first ever Disney World trip...someone pointed me in this direction - I can't remember who it was but it was from a parent's board I used to frequent when my kids were infants.

I love the Podcast boars, Canadian board, and Disney for Families boards most but I also check out lots of the others throughout the week...I love looking for interesting things to read!

The dis is like a second family to me where we're all connected by our love of Disney, you know...where it's not weird to talk about Disney stuff all the time.

I love that I can come here and find the info I need, the support that's given here is amazing! The Dis ROCKS!

I discovered the Dis in March of 2007 when I bought my first set of DVC points from the Timeshare Store :cloud9:
I didn't really get active until December of 2008. I had just come back from a bad Disney trip. We all got sick with a stomach flu that was going around and then we had to come home a day early because of a snow storm. We came home to 3 straight days of snow :mad:
Anyway , I was just hungry for anything Disney I could find. I started off on the resorts boards and then after I got into the podcast , I started posting on the podcast boards.
My favorite part of the Dis is the wonderful people who come here. Everyone is friendly and welcoming and almost always go out of their way to make you feel comfortable :)
I love that the people her "get it" and don't ask why I keep going to Disney when there is a big world out there !!! Disney makes me happy and I think thats fantastic :goodvibes

Back in 2006, I was researching a trip to WDW, and someone suggested I check a website (yes, the DIS) as they had a board that rented out DVC reservations. I joined, and almost booked, but then the trip got canceled. I kind of forgot about the website.

Then, in 2008, I took my first ABD, and the Adventure Guides mentioned the DISboards as a place they'd seen people posting about ABD and posting pics of their pins. After I got home, I checked it out, and found the ABD forum. I joined in, and posted a Trip Report for my ABD. People liked it! I was really encouraged, and started posting regularly. For a long time, the ABD forum was the only place on the DIS I frequented. (In fact, the bookmark for the ABD forum is marked "The DIS".)

After the folks on the ABD forum sucked me into signing up for the DCL Med cruise (I HAD to do that ABD!) I started posting on the DCL forum. I saw people there talking about the Podcast, and finally sought it out several months ago. And those are primarily the 3 places I post -- The ABD Forum, the DCL Forum, and the Podcast Forum.

I came here when the boards first started looking for Disney information. We first visited WDW in 1993 and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, the Internet wasn't what it is today.

I found the boards when I did a Google search for Disney marathon. I found the podcast about a month earlier and didn't realize they were related for a couple of weeks.

I've met real world friends on the boards, at the races and WISH meets, and on PCC 1.0.

My first stops are always the WISH pages and Podcast pages.

I only knew about the podcast because of the DisBoards. I found the Disboards from friends on another travel forum for Myrtle Beach. The rest, shall we say, is history! What a site! At first, I was hooked on the resorts forums, when deciding where to say, then it was restaurants, when deciding what to eat, then it was strategies when deciding what to do! I also visit for families, DisAbilities, budget & transportation every now & again.

Prior to '06, my wife and I had not been to WDW in nearly 15 years due to a number of circumstances. We decided we need a "real" vacation with our then 4 year old daughter, and started researching Disney. We came across this site before anything else, started reading, researching, and well, 5 years and 6 trips later, #7 coming up this August, we are still here, and loving Disney more and more each year!

What do we love about it? Probably the vast, sometimes too much, amount of information instantly available. The family like feel of the site and boards, the podcasts and last but not least, the feeling of "being" at WDW, even while way up here in the NE awaiting our next trip!

I think this site is probably the best resource available for anyone looking to take a Disney vacation period. :thumbsup2

Lori (Briar) was big into RADP too.Cool! We can reminisce!

I forgot to say that what I love about the DIS is how it can take people from all over the place, and bring them together. The whole concept of an active DIS Meet thread for my Med cruise, that turned into a shared table for dinner with magnificent DISer's is just wonderful. Same with the thread for our K&L ABD. I have *plans* with people I've never met for the day before & the free time in London. Something I've never done before!

And I just love sharing the agony :) of deciding which ABD to sign up for with my friends on the ABD forum...

I found the DIS in 2006, when I was researching our big family trip for summer of 2007. Being a Left Coaster, DL was very familiar but I had a feeling WDW would be different. Good thing I listened to my instincts! :cool1:

Back then, I was on the resort, trip report and theme park boards a lot. Then I discovered the Podcast. My DD and I loved listening and we learned so much. Our 2007 trip was terrific! Now that we are not planning a trip, I am still an avid Podcast listener...after all, how could I leave my 'friends??'

Now, I spend most of my time on the Podcast board. I also check out DiSabilities (DD has type 1 Diabetes and I like to share things that worked for us with other families) and Disneyland pretty frequently.

I recommend the podcast and this site to anyone who asks me about WDW.

Trying to get information on a Disney Dream Cruise that was a year away.

Heard my first DIS podcast which was the RANT Podcast about Harry Potter and was hocked on a show that tells it like it is. Found the Dis community will tell it like it is.:charac2:

Boards are what I need in the future or now. Parks, DIS Podcast. Disney Heavy Metal fans :rockband::rockband:, Cruise but that a few years from now since we were on the Dream March 6th, 2011

I had finally convinced my husband that we needed to take a real vacation. One where you leave town, pack a bag, stay in a hotel...we hadn't ever done that before - not in 10 years of marriage. I wanted to go to WDW because I had never been. He agreed and the uber-planner (me) set about planning and found this place. That was pre-2007 (our first trip). We now have a small DVC ownership so that I am sure to get to go back at least every other year. This December will be our 5th trip, and I couldn't have done it without you! All of you...podcasters and posters alike have been so important to me!

I don't post a lot, but I listen all the time, read a lot, and still feel a part of things even though I haven't met any of you. I CAN'T WAIT 'TILL DECEMEBER!! :banana: My husband thinks that Pete and Walter, Kevin and John, Teresa, Corey, etc., etc. are just my imaginary friends I think. I get to prove to him that you guys really exist! I quote you guys all the time, and people on the boards, so it will be nice to show him that everyone is really 3D. :laughing: And you'll get to see that I'm really pink. :cutie:

I hang out here, mostly, and the theme park board, with check-ins at the DVC boards to make sure nothing strange is happening with DVC. You just never know...

I listened to the disunplugged. I kept hearing about the boards, but wasn't really an online reader of things. One day I came to see if the podcast had been recorded for that week, and kept coming back. It took me another year before I actually posted on the boards.

I like the podcast board the best, but I also spend time on the Canadian board and the cruise boards.

I forget that some people on the boards don't listen to the podcast.
