Hi my name is Kelly. Been married to DH for 12 years this June. 3 kids, DS 10, DD 7, and DD 1 (just celebrated birthday yesterday!). I am an IT Help Desk manager.

Growing up we visited Florida every year for spring training and to visit my grandparents. My parents took me to Disney World 3 times growing up and I loved it. The DH and I honeymooned at the world in 2002. We took the kids in 2010 and 2012 and are now planning a Oct 2014 trip. Every trip I have stayed offsite. We decided after the last time we will never stay offsite again!

Second, I just realized that we've never really done a round robin in here. That could be a fun way to kill some time. Introduce yourself. Married? Kids? How did you first become a Disney fanatic? What do you do for a living? Things like that....

Does that sound like fun?
I'm 39, married for 13 years to a great guy, with 2 kids (DS 6, DD 9). I work at a large University in research. I've been there for 15 years and have a great job...most days.

I've been going to WDW almost since it opened. We went to Florida every year growing up. We had a condo near St. Pete and went for 2 weeks every summer - we would pack up and leave on the last day of school. We would break up the 2 weeks by coming to WDW for 1 or 2 days. So, I've probably been on 30 or so trips but only a few on-site stays.

After getting married I brought my DH a couple times. He'd never been to WDW before and loved it. After we had kids we planned an on-site trip and stayed at the BCR CL. We LOVED it!!! It was so magical. So, we go every few years now. We love going to the beach, mountains, etc. so there are lots of other places we like to travel to, as well.

I love it when we're planning a trip. I like planning the restaurants, attractions....all of it. We're not really commando but we are all about the attractions. That's what we get most excited about. We also love spending our down-time at the pools. Can't wait for this September!!! I probably think about Disney a little more than a person should.

Nice to meet everyone!

Hi! I am Melissa. I am currently planning my 7th trip to Disney. I thought we
would just take the kids to Disney once and then check that off our vacation list! Well.....you know how that turned out! We were hooked! When I divorced last summer after 33 years of marriage, I gathered up my grown kids and said it was time to go to the happy place again. We all needed it. I invited my sister because she had a difficult year also and had never been to Disney. I created a new Disney fan so we are planning our next trip!

I have a degree in education and taught school for several years before becoming a mom. I home educated our children and that was great. I have a married daughter that is 26 and twin sons that are 21. One son is entering the Marines in 2 weeks and then will return home to complete his degree. The other son just completed his BBA in accounting. All of us enjoy traveling and Disney in particular!

Glad to "meet" everyone. I don't post often, but I lurk often!
Melissa

Hi everyone, relatively new here. Lurked a lot last year but we are finally booked for this fall so I have come out of lurk mode a bit. The "we" consists of me, my hubby, and our two kids frick is 7 and frack is 4. This will be the kids first trip and my hubby's 2nd. I've been about 7-8 times. We are from Maryland and are not so anxiously awaiting the latest snowstorm! I am however, anxiously awaiting the fall discounts!

I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Barring, freezing drizzle, wind chills and polar vortex winds.

Holy Cow, I could kill me a groundhog right about now.

Hi all! My name is Megan, originally from KS, now in St Louis. DH and I have 2 kids, DD 4 and DS 9. Visited MK for the first time on a one-day trip in 2012, we were instantly hooked. Went for a full week last year and stayed at the Beach Club. It is definitely our happy place! Planning a fall trip this year, then heading back in Feb 2015 for the Princess half. DIS is such a great resource and made planning our last trip a breeze!

My sis and her family are flying out to Disney tomorrow. Only problem is we are supposed to get hit first with a nice storm, and then snow. We could get up to a half inch of ice and eight inches of snow. Yikes.

Ewe...we started out with 12-14" than they dropped it to 4-8" now were 3-6". Thats much better. But im so done with snow. We're supposed to get ice too but not much. Itll be enough though to make it even uglier. I hope she can still go but uts not looking good for her

Hi my name is Keri and I am a Disneyholic. I am 43 and have a DS 9 and DD 8. Been married almost 14 years. We recently moved to Ohio. I am a stay at home mom. I have always loved Disney but my addictive behavior really began when I had kids. Before that I had been to the parks over 50x but it was to drink or play not to experience it. My husband was never really into Disney until we started going every year. Now if I try to plan another type of vacation, I am shot down. We are planning to buy a DVC within the next year. Not sure where yet.

Have a great day!

black562, you always come up with good ideas! I look forward to all the information you are able to pass on to us.

I am COMPLETELY addicted to Disney. I went there one time as a kid when it first opened, and then not again until I was 33 years old!!! I'm not sure really what made me decide to go at age 33 for virtually the first time, as I had very little memory of my first trip, but I'm so glad I did.

From that time, I have been almost 20 times. Now that I count (on my fingers no less), I think this year will actually be #20!!! Wait, let me count again......

Yup!! This year is number #20!!!

WOW!!!! Anyway, married to my wonderful dh of 12 years this year. We got engaged on our first trip to Disney together, got married at Disney's Wedding Pavilion and honeymooned there, and have been fortunate enough to go every year since then. Two years we went twice a year, until we decided to send our dd to private school, and twice a year went out the window.

Our favorite resort is Poly, and despite all the construction, we are staying there again. We have a tween dd and a 3 year old Disney dog.

We have already gotten an amazing discount on this year's vacation, so I am super grateful for that. Now hurry up and get here vacation!!!!

Greetings from a very cold place. They cancelled work today because of the ice and snow, so I'm just sitting here trying to pass the time.

That sounds so crazy to someone from Maine where it's sunny but about 18 degrees. Although you could be in the mountains.....anything is possible it seems this winter.
