Can't wait to get involved in all the chat it gets me so excited for our up coming holidays. We are lucky enough to be visiting twice this year once staying off site and the other staying at POFQ.

See you all around.
to the DIS, Kim! If you haven't been to POFQ before, be assured you will love it. Hope both of your trips are magical!

Introducing myself...

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum (as a poster, though a longtime reader) but not new to Disney. I've lived in Chicago for 10 years, but I'm originally from New York. Even when I lived on the east coast, Disneyland was my "home" park (at one point I was a cross-country AP!) I haven't been back to DLR in a few years, but in March I'm finally changing that by bringing my partner there for his 40th birthday weekend. (First time at DLR and in California for him, so it should be very special.)

I'm looking forward to all the new changes, and hopefully to going back to being a regular visitor. I've always loved the charm and friendliness in Disneyland--I sometimes refer to a Disney vacation as my version of a beach vacation. Disney fans get that, other people just look at me funny. Good. One less person to crowd the park!

I also would love to visit the World. I haven't been since I was kid (1970s), so obviously it's a much different, much larger place than last time I was there. I remember staying at the Poly and loving the fountains when I was 3, and riding Space when I was 7, but that's about it. So definitely time to revisit Orlando and make new memories.

As for me, I'm a middle-aged communications consultant and former urban planner, no idea how to drive a car, and a future rabbi (if my rabbinic school application is successful and the money comes together.) But an equally big dream is to live in SoCal within driving distance of DLR. For DLR, even after 42 years, I'd learn!

Welcome Mike! I have to say I live about 5 minutes North of Cinderella's Castle here in Orlando, but I still love Disneyland the best too!

I do have to take offense to one thing you posted, we are not middle aged, 50 is the new 30! LOL At least I feel too young to be middle aged.

Have a wonderful trip to Disneyland!

Hi all! :)

Ian and I (Sonia, lol) are new to the DIS forum and we're already loving it! We've been together for 10 years now and never better. One of the many things that keeps us going is our insane love for -anything- Disney, especially when the majority of adults turn their noses up at us for loving it so much! We are busily planning a Disney Cruise and have now decided that each marriage anniversary (almost) will always be something Disney related. We can't wait to talk and get advice from a bunch of cool Disney fans, just like ourselves! Thanks guys

Hi! I must say your post made me laugh! I know what you mean about people not getting how wonderful a Disney vacation can be!

Hello from SF Bayarea

Wife and I loved our visits to Orlando when we were in the midwest. Now w/ a little one under 2yrs old, we get to re-live the Disney experience.

This site is great and so useful.

My wife tends to be pretty organized and prepared for the parks...for example, when the Mountain ride opened in Animal Kingdom (within months of first opening)...we were able to log in 5 rides that day even though the lines were at 3hrs by 1pm. W/ the little guy, I don't think we'll get that efficient, but who knows.

Looking forward to contributing as well as getting some knowledge here.

we have special insights for SF area (obviously) but also the isl. Oahu (Hawaii) so hit us up for tips.
