View Full Version : How old are you???

02-10-2003, 09:18 AM
Just curious as to how old all you "kids" are. Everyone thinks Disney is just for kids and my family thinks I'm crazy for going as often as I do, especially w/o the kids;) )

So what is the general age of us DVC'ers, on this board at least?

02-10-2003, 09:25 AM
Actually, we would fall into two categories, but since I'm the one who frequents these boards, I went with 21-39. My DH is actually 41 and I'm 37.


P.S. I'll be interested to see the average ages of fellow DVCers

02-10-2003, 09:30 AM
I'm 29......again!;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

I voted my real age, but I'll never tell!

02-10-2003, 10:12 AM
After spending many years at 29......I've jumped up to 39..........I'll never tell, either!!!

02-10-2003, 11:28 AM
Odd at how many people have viewed this thread but for some reason just didn't vote. Come on, it won't kill you or nothin'.

02-10-2003, 11:47 AM
...when we became members. I'm now 43,but DW is still 39. Go figure !?!?!?

I am 38, and my wife is 31. We don't have kids yet, but we are trying now.....well, not RIGHT now :teeth:

02-10-2003, 04:20 PM
Well, I was born in 1944. Too early to even be an official baby boomer:p

So guess that puts me at 29......Again.;)

02-10-2003, 06:01 PM
;) I'm 33, DH is 30 we are hoping to do "add ons" to our family and our DVC this year!

Back to the OP;) I am 46 and DW is 45.

02-10-2003, 06:15 PM
I am 51 and DH is 54 years young. The only thing were adding now are more grandchildren and more DVC points.

I'm 47 and my DW is 48, and she is never shy about giving out her age, or anyone else's for that matter. LOL!!!;)

02-10-2003, 06:26 PM
I am 38 and my DW is 41. We have one DS who is 5, and we also are still trying for number 2....:smooth: ..dave

02-10-2003, 07:09 PM
I'm 33 about 95% of the year. When it's time to head to WDW, I'm magically transformed to 12!! My DW, however maintains her age of 33 so she can take responsibility for the two kids and myself!

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

02-10-2003, 07:23 PM
We purchased in our 50's but that was over 10 years ago so we are now in the minority group, 60 or over!! It's a good thing we get to go to Disney so we can be kids again!!

Well - I'm in the 40 something crowd but was carded at PI this past June!! DH could not believe it and DS who is 17 thought it was cool!!! So I'd like to change the 40 something to 20 something!!! LOL! Annmarie

02-10-2003, 09:26 PM
DH and I are both 51. I was surprised to find the majority of the respondants are in my age group!!

02-10-2003, 10:05 PM
Hi, I am 53 and my husband is 58. Oh, boy...we are beginning to "grow up" like it or not. I am not ashamed of my age...it is not like I am admitting I am dumb or ungenerous or a coward or something!!

We are both 47 years young , wild and crazy :crazy:

Our younger DD's (14 & 12) think we are WAY to obsessed with Disney ... Our older kids DD 25 & DS 22 can't get enough of our Disney trips. Then there are our DG babies 4,2 & 7 months who just LOVE going!

02-10-2003, 10:27 PM
I'm 35 but my DH turned 42 on Saturday. We are buying our first DVC right now, so we aren't DVCers yet, but we will be soon

02-11-2003, 07:15 AM
I thin there is a big difference in the 21-39 cat. The younger end of that could still be college students. The middle to older side is those of us that were born Disney babies, We went as the park first opened and watched it grow, It brings back many amazing childhood memories (and therefor, as my family will attest to - transforms me back to a smiling 7 year old). We are also the generation that is now having children and wants to share it with them,

As a Disney baby, I will go for many years to come.

WEll, I see we are in the most popular age group, but we are going to be hopping up one soon!

02-11-2003, 09:28 AM
I will be 90 when our membership expires. How's that for optimism?

My wife and i are both fifty- three (53). To those of you who are age-sensitive, I have a bit of helpful attitude advice. Always remember this - "I'd rather have another birthday than not; What's the alternative?" As some of you have noted, a visit to WDW is like a sip from the "Fountain of Youth." It's over sixteen weeks until my wife and I return to WDW, and we're already counting down like children a few days before Christmas.

02-11-2003, 11:21 AM
I am 22....I bought DVC as a graduation present to myself from college...

02-11-2003, 11:44 AM
I am 39 and DW is 35. The two DD are 10 and 5 although all of our maturity levels are the same at WDW.

Good to see others from South Jersey responding on these Boards. The DW and I are 57 & 56 years young. We purchased this past April and have used up 2 years points already with help from Kids and Grandkids. We have all gone together a few times before but it just seems we have a better time each trip.


02-11-2003, 02:38 PM
I'm 34 and DH is 37

02-12-2003, 03:21 AM
DW and I are 41. DD is 14.

oops :o DW better not see this. She is actually 40 for another month.

02-12-2003, 04:19 PM
I'm 29, DH is 31. I actually purchased DVC when I was 26, before I was married. Good thing...DH still thinks it's too expensive! If he had his way we'd be in Buffalo every weekend for Bills football games...so what does he know? :)

02-12-2003, 09:47 PM
I'm 42 and DH is 46. We just bought last year at BCV and plan on going to WDW even in our 80s much to our kids' dismay. LOL.


02-13-2003, 08:47 PM
DH is 42 and I am 47. We have 3 boys, 22, 21 and 11. We love visiting WDW several times a year with some or all of the boys. I can honestly say I am also looking forward to some day being able to go as just the two of us.

02-13-2003, 10:10 PM
I am 55 years young and my DH is 57 (soon to be 58) and having lots of fun with our DVC Membership.

02-13-2003, 11:46 PM
I just turned 60 this minute, so I had to tell. Well, last week. Holey moley.

DVC has been so much fun for our family. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Thanks -- I need to send that to my age-obsessed older brother!

We're :earsboy: 48 and :earsgirl: [censored] (oops! ;) ), but I'm so age-un-obsessed that I have to stop and think every time someone asks :confused: .

Although I'm old enough to have grown up with Disney, I didn't, and my obsession only started in my mid-30s with our first WDW visit. It's all DW's fault :)

02-14-2003, 11:23 PM
WDW is one month younger than me...... and DH is 32. We purchased DVC when he was 30 and I was 29. We have 2 children, DS 3 (4 on 3-4-03) and DD 8 1/2 months. We will NOT be doing any family add ons (I hope):rolleyes: I want to save my points for a longer stay, not larger accomadations;) DS doesn't know that there is any other place to vacation!!

02-15-2003, 01:10 AM
I'm 31 and my wife is 28. I certainly feel like one of the younger crowd here.

No kids yet, but that's why we bought into DVC. By the way, we just added on Tuesday!!!! More fun for our future children!!:cool:
