Oh, and I know who's in charge, that's why I'm still here, right?
Regardless of who's in charge, I'm the same way with my phone. I will use it til it dies. If I can get by with a cheap battery replacement, then I will.

Welcome and congrats on the adoption. Dues are payable in Dole Whips, bacon, beer, or cake. While you wait for a number, tell us about any Disney trips you have taken or plan to take.

Welcome to the Club and congrats on the adoption. There is nothing like seeing your child's face light up at WDW.

As Norm said, while we wait for Don to give you your official members number, tell us more about yourself.

I will admit though, I went a little too cheap with my current phone, it's aleady looking banged up after a year or so, compared to the older one which looked great after 6+ years

Well, I will spend up to get the item I want, but will keep it forever once I get. I really liked the windows smartphone and did the upgrade and bought a case and plastic screen guard as well. I got the refurbished iPad and I really like it. There are the next generation ones which I am sure are better and have more features, but I will keep this one forever until in costs more to repair than to buy a new one. All 3 of our vehicles now have over 100K on them.

Oh, and although we call ourselves the DISDad's, we would make an exception for those who share the DISDad spirit. But you are here now...

You know it's probably a bad sign when two other long-term employees in the district are going too, and have big retirement parties booked, and posted throughout the stores, ours has a small e-mail mention and a half-assed pot-luck lunch today, an "Image Monday" that is too busy for anyone to attend. .

Any news on movement for me might come by the end of next week, when they should be announcing the transfers. All I really hope is my good friend to get on full-time, she deserves it.
We just booked Seth's birthday party for the last weekend of June (his birthday is mid-July but his school friends won't be as reachable). He's going to have it at Laser Quest.

Good luck on the pending potential promotion.

Oh, no promotion, just a possible lateral transfer to another store. I haven't even put in for a promotion. Not enough seniority.

Thanks for the welcomes from many of you. I'm Jon, and hail from Oklahoma City. My wife and I went on our first official Disney trip last June and loved it. I did a trip report, its in my signature, although I am not near as interesting as most of the other trip reporters on here. We wanted to make a return trip this year, but due to the adoption we have decided to wait and go next Summer when DS is about 15 months old. This is due in part to the fact that the adoption is not 100% final yet. All parental rights have been relinquished, but in Oklahoma there is a mandatory 6 month waiting period so we are still involved in that, but the hard days are over. Also, due to the finances involved in the adoption process we wanted to take some time to get some of that taken care of as well. Finally, DS was born with a cleft lip and so he is having surgery to repair that on July 5, so it is going to be a busy summer with the surgery and that will bring some other expenses as well. So needless to say, by next June we will need some Disney!

By the way, I would post pictures of our son, but I cannot do that per adoption agency regulations until the 6 months is up. I will post at that point.

My wife and I are both in education (I teach Physics and coach football/track & field and my wife is a school counselor) so we can't take a trip except over Christmas break or in the summer. Early June worked very well for us last year though as far as the crowds. That is a good time to go as we still beat a lot of people to DW as we get out of school early in Oklahoma compared to many places. We are planning a big trip for next summer though with some family members as well and we are even planning on staying two nights at Universal so we can see Harry Potter and get front of the line access. Because I have to wait an entire year to go back I definitely need a place to get the Disney fix!

Hello again. We get a Fall Break in October and Spring Break in my children's elementary schools, so we like to go those weeks. They are about 6 months apart, but this will be the first year at WDW during Easter week. Our youngest dd was 15 months when we went the first time with her. We liked th crowd levels when we went in June a few years back, but it certainly was hot.

Man is it hot out! Typical Indiana though, we will be back in the 70's by the end of the week.

Got the cruise officially booked need to add another ticker. Might as well update my trip report while I am at it, right Andy??
